6 Days to Air: The Making of South Park

I recently watched this documentary on Netflix and at first, I was a little skeptical about it since not too long ago a different documentary about the making of South Park was released. However, this documentary is a little different because it focuses on the making of the 15h season’s episode “Humancentipad”, a spin-off of the disturbing human centipede movie. The cameras go behind the scenes with Trey Parker and Matt Stone. I’ve known before this documentary how the animation is usually made the night of the episode releasing, with cutouts and low-quality animation. However, they need to do this because they only have such a small amount of time since they write the episodes according to what happens in the news that day. This is not an easy task. The documentary shows how stressful this process is and how much dedication you need to do this. I have a lot more respect for South Park now, although I’ve always loved the show and their political commentary.
