South Park -- "Dead Celebrities" -- 10/7/09

New season starts on Wednesday. I know the thread is early, but we like talking about episodes as soon as the announcement is made.

Episode 1308 Press Release
From the Comedy Central Press Release:

DEAD CELEBRITIES ARE HAUNTING IKE.
ALL-NEW “SOUTH PARK” EPISODES BEGIN
ON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7 AT 10:00 P.M. ON COMEDY CENTRAL

NEW YORK, October 5, 2009 – The boys bring in professional ghost hunters to investigate evidence of paranormal activity in the Broflovski House in an all-new episode of "South Park" titled, “Dead Celebrities,” premiering on Wednesday, October 7 at 10:00 p.m. on Comedy Central.

Powerful forces are tormenting Ike. He's freaked out and the stress could kill him. Kyle and the boys are doing everything they can to save him but the poltergeists won't leave Ike alone.

I can't wait to see how they portray David Caradine in this one.

I'm guessing this'll be a shot at the media about their obsession with celebrity deaths.

Yeah, but I think it's safe to assume from the description we'll still get to see lots of recent celebri-ghosts!

I was hoping for a Polanski episode.

it looks like they're also taking shots at the movie Paranormal Activities. As the basic plot outline is taken right from that

Is this a "known" movie for most people? I've never heard of it.

Re: South Park -- "Dead Celebrities" -- 10/7/09

Okay so we got...

Bea Arthur
Billy Mays
DJ AM
Ed McMahon
Farrah Fawcett
Michael Jackson
Natasha Richardson
Patrick Swayze
Ted Kennedy

There was someone else speaking in the second row, but I couldn't tell who it was. Not sure who was on the other side of Michael there at the end either.

Not a bad episode. I think the Chipotle and Ass-Bleeding were much funnier than the rest of the episode. Still, the episode was pretty good (loved them making fun of Ghost Hunters and that annoying lady from Poltergeist). "We are all ready to move on" was great as well. Also found it funny that DJ AM was back on a plane.

My Cox cable feed was all fucked up. Hoping the late broadcast will be clear

At least there is always SPS.com tomorrow.
