Wii mania has reached South Park as the new series of the badly drawn series testifies. The episode entitled Cartman 2546 sees the nation's favourite 90lb 9-year-old persuade Butters into freezing his body so that he won't have to wait three weeks for the console to come out. Along the way Mrs Garrison falls in love with Richard Dawkins, God is debunked as flying spaghetti and sea otters battle atheists 500 years in the future. Comedy Central has a clip of the episode on its website or, thanks to Trey Parker and Matt Stone's rather lax attitude to these things, you can find the entire show on YouTube. Meanwhile, if you're itching for some next-gen console action, you can pop down to Best of Stuff this weekend and play with the PS3. No cryogenics needed.
