You can't do that on Portland television
A full-hour of "South Park" on KPDX? Every night starting at 11? On network TV? They can do that?
Apparently so but I'm not complaining. I caught only the tail end of the David Blane episode last night and it wasn't edited. While it's not the show's raunchiest installment, the "Sea Man" gag still slipped through.
Does this mean that episodes like "Beebee's Boobs Destory Society" or "Mr. Garrison's Fancy New Vagina" will also fly under the radar of censors and the city's "moral majority"? Maybe. After all, the show airs well after their bedtime.
Still, something this good can't last for long. Portland's a liberal town but is it liberal enough to allow obscenity-spewing fourth graders and singing poop on its airwaves? I give this whole thing two weeks before "South Park" is yanked off and replaced with an hour block of "Just Shoot Me."
