Last night's South Park episode "Grounded Vindaloop" saw the crew exploring the virtual reality world of Oculus, but the real treat came during the final 20 seconds when the boys finally returned to reality. It's a surprise South Park has pulled before, but not with this level of adorable accuracy.
Comedy Central set its fall lineup premiere dates today, and in addition to the previously announced fourth season premiere of Key and Peele on September 24th at 10:30pm, according to Deadline the network has lined up the 18th season premiere of its Emmy-winning hit South Park the same night at 10:00pm.
