If you like free stuff, and you like South Park, you will like this: South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are now streaming nearly every episode of the series online, plus clips and behind-the-scenes information. In a press release, Parker and Stone gave a typically flippant reason for the launch: "We got really sick of having to download our own show illegally all the time so we gave ourselves a legal alternative."
The site currently has 168 of the 169 episodes of South Park available. (I'm not sure which one's missing.) Because of various contract issues, new episodes will appear on the site right after they air and be available for seven days before being temporarily taken down; after 30 days, they'll be added back to the site for good. The episodes can't be embedded on other sites, but they can be shared on sites like Facebook.
There's clearly still some work to be done on the site (the episode guide feature is pretty buggy for me), but who am I to complain when there's more than a decade of South Park episodes to be watched at my leisure? Are there any old episodes you're particularly interested in checking out again?
