Customer Reviews

Picture quality is very good!
Dennis A. Amith
The way they discuss issues really gives you an inside look to how their creative minds work and why the humor of the show is what it is.
Reconnecting To My Childhood
South Park is one of those rare shows that just seems to get better as time goes by.

I was in fourth grade when south park came out back in 1997, now here we are heading into 2009 and the creator's of the show Matt Stone and Trey Parker are still coming up with stories based in immature humor but paired with intelligent and witty story premises very relevant to today's pop culture. The twelfth season contains the following fourteen classic episodes as well as some special features that previous sets have been lacking.

Britney's New Look - Rather than mock the mess Britney Spears was, this episode mocks those of us who put her there and those trying to take her place.

Tonsil Trouble - Cartman ends up with aids, and he's hiv positive that he wants to find a cure.

Major Boobage- Kenny gets high off cat urine and lives the 'heavy metal' lifestyle.

Canada Goes On Strike- I'm canadian and love that they used us to mock the writer's strike of last year.

Eek, A Penis!- Mrs. Garrison comes full circle. Or is that Mr. Garrison?

Over Logging- Instead of commenting on natural resource over use like oil or forestry Matt and Trey decide to comment on our over dependency on the internet.

Super Fun Time- A pioneer village field trip turns into the plotline of several hit eighties movies when terrorists take over the fun park and Cartman and Butters skip out.

The China Probrem- Beijing Olympic's get Cartman paranoid of the Chinese while Kyle and Stan deal with the disappointment of Steven Speilberg and George Lucas 'raping' Indiana Jones for profits.

The Breast Cancer Show Ever- Cartman becomes a cancer to Wendy, the only way to stop cancer is to fight it.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: after twelve seasons, you'd figure that an animated comedy would have gone stale (I'm looking at you Simpsons, no I'm not afraid to say it). With South Park though, you'd be wrong. The twelfth season of Comedy Central's bread & butter series finds Stan, Kyle, Cartman, Kenny, and the rest of the town's citizens in more insane situations. "Britney's New Look" finds creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker putting their own spin on the train wreck that is Britney Spears, and also has no shame in pointing the finger at who helped make her who she is today, all the while having some insane fun doing it as the boys attempt to help her out. "Tonsil Trouble" gives Cartman a taste of his own medicine, "Major Boobage" finds Kenny with a strange drug problem while paying tribute to the animated classic Heavy Metal (right down to the animation style), and "Eek, a Penis!" finds Mrs. Garrison wishing to be a man again (and features one of the most hilarious moments you will ever see with a singing mouse and his, ahem, attachment). Other episodes go so far to feature some undercurrent themes, whether it be the writer's strike ("Canada Goes on Strike"), our dependency on the internet ("Over Logging"), the Olympics and the butchering of Indiana Jones ("The China Problem"), and even the election ("About Last Night"); while some episodes poke fun at hit flicks like Cloverfield ("Pandemic 1 & 2"), High School Musical ("Elementary School Musical"), and Twilight ("The Ungroundable"). The only weak point of the season for me personally was "Super Fun Time", but other than that, the twelfth season of South Park is flawless and hilarious. All in all, South Park hasn't stopped being funny and even socially relevant, and here's hoping that it never does either.

It's easy to write satire. It's difficult to write funny satire. Disc 1 with 5 episodes was not particularly funny. There was satire (Canada on strike spoofing the Writer's strike), social commentary (the role of the paparazzi in chasing stories of train wreck celebs, like Britney), but nothing that was laugh inducing. Perhaps the issues were just sad and sometimes stupidity just makes one angry.

It's not til disk two that I begin to find myself smiling and occasionally chuckling over scenes/dialogs in "Super Phun Thyme" and "The Breast Cancer Show Ever".

Then disc 3 with Pandemic I & II about Peruvian pan flute bands and their links to giant destructive Guinea Pigs, the aftermath of the Presidential election amd why Obama and McCain really wants to get into the White House manages to come together for some laugh out loud comedy. The last two episodes skewers the fads of "High School Musical 3", and "Twilight" while at the same time making some pointed observation about society, fitting in, finding an identity, and holding on to one's identity.

Cartman and Butters are an incredibly powerful comedy team with the eternally cynical, selfish, and self-centred Cartman matched with the insecure, anxious-to-please, perpetually innocent and naive Butters, and the "Super Phun Thyme" episode was particularly funny because of these two characters and the way Butters stood by his principles.

Of course anytime Cartman gets his just desserts is an episode worth watching ("The Breast Cancer Shpw Ever").

Pandemic I/II was funny for it's self-commentary as provided by Craig.

Season 10 is still my all-time favourite, but season 12 is an improvement over season 11 which may have suffered for following an excellent season in 10.
