Le fil des séries (dont beaucoup trop se bousémotivent)

Parle pour toi. Quand je tombe sur un épisode de Parker Lewis à la télé, je n'hésite pas un seul instant à regarder.

Moi, je cherche à me procurer l'intégrale de Magnum depuis un moment. De façon presque tout à fait légale bien sûr mais de préférence sous format numérique seul, les galettes en polyacrylate me laissent froid.

Eh bien c'est dur.

C't'un scandale.

Moi je l'écoute, surtout, et quelquefois, je me contente de l'entendre d'un oeil

 

Pareil, en faisant le repassage, du bricolage, voire de la cuisine.

Je vois ça sur un site complètement légal mais la qualité est-elle assez bonne pour toi ?

Dernier épisode de South Park en date : You're not Yelping.

Je ne savais pas que yelp avait un si grand pouvoir aux US (dans les villes "branchées") et, même si la mafia de la critique a toujours existé, qu'elle se généralise sur Internet me donne des envies de facepalm ces gens-là avec des parpaings.

Ici on est plus au fait de Senscritique, et les mêmes travers sont communs aux deux sites.

Donner son opinion librement, c'est cool. Une critique, objective ou pas, est toujours bonne à prendre, venant d'expert ou pas.

Penser que le critique est le seul détenteur de la Vérité, c'est absurde.

Et c'est exactement ce que dénonce cet épisode, en comparant les critiques de yelp à des soldats de ISIS. L'analogie est violente mais extrêmement pertinente.

Quant au final, classique South Park, il est promptement dégueulasse. Peut être leur meilleure et plus dégoûtante chanson.

On notera que dans beaucoup d'autres circonstances (d'autres sitcoms), les victimes des critiques de yelp se seraient tourné vers l'Etat pour faire interdire tout simplement ce genre de site. D'ailleurs je suis persuadé que c'est arrivé en France au moins une fois...

Bref, à recommander promptement.

Today Yelp Inc. filed a $10 million dollar lawsuit against the creators of South Park and Comedy Central. In the lawsuit, Yelp is seeking damages caused by the latest episode of South Park which lampooned the customer review and local business rating website.

Paul Horner, who is a spokesman for Yelp, spoke with NBC News about details of the lawsuit.

“Our company, along with its millions of users, take Yelp very seriously. The South Park episode was in extremely bad taste and not funny whatsoever. To say our critics are out there trying to get free food and using racist slurs on little Mexican children is beyond ridiculous. To compare the users of Yelp to terrorists is not only cruel, but the definition of libel and slander. I believe any reasonable court in America will agree with the lawsuit and rule in our favor.”

Matt Stone and Trey Parker, creators of the popular animated series, were quick to issue a statement of their own.

“We’ve taken a hard look at the information presented to us, and after reviewing it, we have given Yelp and their lawsuit only one star. Their lawyers delivered us legal documents in a very unprofessional manner; not bothering to smile or even a quick handshake. The writing on the envelope was barely legible and in two different colors. It is our personal opinion that Yelp could do a much better job by not suing us for ten million dollars.”

The episode at the center of the lawsuit, titled, You’re Not Yelping, parodies Yelp reviewers, going as far as comparing them to ISIS, while also continuing the season-to-date theme which mocks political correctness.

Harvard law professor, Tom Downey, believes Yelp will lose the $10 million lawsuit.

“It is of my personal opinion that this case falls under fair use laws protected by freedom of speech and using parody to deliver its message,” Downey said. “Though, with such recent cases as Snopes v. Horner and Pyramid Country, anything is possible these days. If I was South Park, I would still be worried.”

 

According to Business Week, Yelp has a complicated relationship with small businesses. Criticism regarding the company focuses on the legitimacy of reviews, public statements of Yelp manipulating and blocking reviews in order to increase ad spending, as well as concerns regarding the privacy of reviewers.

Fappy The Anti-Masturbation Dolphin, a mascot for a Christian anti-masturbation organization, says the company is losing business because of Yelp reviewers.

“Before being listed on Yelp we had no problem going around the country speaking to elementary school children about the dangers and consequences of masturbation. Now, with our poor reviews on Yelp, people are beginning to question our morals and ethics, like that is so important. Just because I have been arrested three times for public masturbation and each case was pardoned by the Governor, doesn’t mean our federal funding and government support had anything to do with it. With the assumptions made by Yelp reviewers, they are causing deadly self-rape addictions in this country to continue and in the end it is Big Masturbation that wins. Such a shame.”

South Park is well known for controversy, speaking out against corporations, individuals and religion. In 2005, an episode about Scientology aired titled, Trapped In The Closet. After the first week of airing, the controversial episode mocking outspoken Scientologist Tom Cruise was pulled from the scheduled lineup under mysterious circumstances (Some saying it was due to pressure from Cruise and Scientology). Stone and Parker immediately issued the following statement:

“So, Scientology, you may have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for earth has just begun! Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies… You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail!”

The $10 million lawsuit was filed at the Superior Court of California with opening arguments beginning November 5th, coincidentally the same date as Paul Horner’s birthday.

En train de regarder la 3e saison d'Hannibal. Je la trouve vraiment poussive en tout point. On sent que c'est la saison demandée mais non prévue qui s'étire et qui ne dit rien.

Bon j'en suis à l'arrivée du dragon rouge donc ça va peut être changer mais jusque là c'était long et rébarbatif. A noter que pour la première fois j'ai trouvé que de trop nombreuses scènes étaient inutilement gorasses.

Je vois que Homeland est déjà en train de partir en sucette. Grrrrr !

Episode 4 ? J'étais pas mal déçu par le 3e, mais j'espérais que ça allait s'améliorer.

Il va donc être temps d'attaquer la deuxième saison de The Strain. J'espère que c'est aussi addictif que la première.

Elle est bien, mais la multiplication des petites intrigues fait que l'histoire n'avance pas énormément au final. Et il y a un peu de bouse émotive qui commence à déborder.

Pas mal cet épisode 4 de Homeland, la saison démarre enfin. J'aurais du me douter de qui allait être les antagonistes de cette saison. La fin de l'épisode est ultra brutale dans la lignée de la saison 4.

Quelques incohérences qui font tâche, mais pas de quoi gâcher son plaisir. Reste à voir si ça continue sur ce rythme.
