"South Park season 15 is... South Park. This March, South Park s***s in your eyes, ears and mouth. South Park, season frrrp, rated Arg for Pirates, f*** you!"
Oh, how many times will I head on down to South Park? Likely until the series ends. Still, these last two seasons have found my interests shift, not that I don't love the show and respect Matt and Trey as much as I always have, but priorities change and like Stan, I fear I'm getting old. There's something poetic about Stan only turning 10 and my having found this show when it started airing right as I turned 10. While I'll always follow this unique trailblazing show these last two seasons have found me picking up a lot of the episodes after initial airing due to life circumstances. Many times I forgot a new episode was on or that the new season had started. That said, when I found time to watch the episodes I enjoyed the majority of them.
I will say this is a standout season from recent years. Many episodes this season follow the series' best of formulas, they aren't one-off episodes as much as they are a cumulative effort. A lot of quality ideas tossed together in a blender with some weirdness and some abstractness. You know what you have when you do that? You have yourself that classic South Park we all love. It's a shame not every episode can capture that old fresh charm the show once had but shows have to evolve and viewers change/desensitize. In the end this is a season worth owning for anyone who is still a fan or for those who possibly grew up on this more recent evolution of South Park. The purchase for those individuals is made even easier to justify given that they've included the insightful, and hilarious, documentary "6 Days to air: The Making of South Park".Read more ›
OVERVIEW: The premise of "South Park" was conceived by creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker in the early 1990s. Due to its viral-video success, Comedy Central picked up the rights to the franchise and aired the first episode of the adult animated series in 1997. The cartoon garnered fame as one of the first shows to hinge its comedy on the use of crude language, satirical storylines, and dark humor. Set in South Park, Colorado, the main characters of the show--Stan Marsh, Eric Cartman, Kyle Broflovski, and Kenny McCormick--often parody the childhoods of their writers.
SPECIAL FEATURES of the Season 15 box-set include deleted scenes, "6 Days to Air: The Making of `South Park,'" "6 Days to Air: Behind the Scenes of `City Sushi,'" and "Commentary-Mini." If you have never watched the episodes with "Commentary Mini," I encourage you to do so; the short commentaries from Trey Parker and Matt Stone are optionally run during the first three minutes of each episode. Parker and Stone have used this method of commentary since the early seasons. Their short introductions often expose insights behind particular jokes, further multiplying the laugh count.
SEASON 15 kicked off in the spring of 2011 with fourteen episodes, each written during the week before broadcast. In true "South Park" style, some of the pop-culture references of this season include: The Royal Wedding, the History Channel, "The Matrix," U.S./Mexico Border Security, DeVry University, Wiki-Leaks, Steve Jobs/Apple, Asperger's Syndrome, Broadway Theater, "The Human Centipede," Comedy Central's First Annual Comedy Awards, the NCAA, Veganism, and the War on Wall Street.Read more ›
It's not the packaging I would have preferred (I have seasons 1-14 as well as 16 in the "original," fold-out style), but the show is comedy gold! Ironically, this type of packaging is slimmer and less wasteful--and, if all the other seasons were available this way, I'd rather have all of them like this, but I'm OCD, so my main concern is having them all look the same. I just don't know how to order it so that it would be like the other 15 seasons I've got. So, 5 stars for the show, 3 for the packaging.

i have every season and first i want to say how glad i am that south park is still issuing their episodes by the season and not by the volume like so many other greedy networks. I was a little surprised to find this season in a slender packaging case since all my other 14 episodes came in a tri-fold dvd case made of sturdy cardboard and plastic. This case is all plastic and has a slender design. oh well, i guess after 14 years they decided to change the packaging and distribution. Just a heads up if you are expecting the unfolding case with the extra graphics, dont.

The biggest reason I think to do the Blu-ray of South Park is for the bonus features, most importantly the mini commentaries. That gives insight that adds to the humor, and sometimes is funny in its own right. Seasons for me are pretty consistent with regards to the number of episodes I like. Out of the 14 episode seasons I typically only have 2 episodes I go "eh" over. This season had the split spring/fall with the two-parter "You're getting old" and "Ass Burgers" and even though it's a two parter, it seems more like one episode cut in half, like separating the "set up" and the "punchline" from a joke as Funnybot would say. "You're getting old" started out funny but quickly just got put you to sleep boring, like it wasn't even attempting to do any humor. Ass burgers went to reverse this by now having the punchline, but it depends entirely upon the set up by "You're getting old" so it's like -1 and +1 = 0.
Royal Pudding was fun, but the ending felt like it was a "Eh we don't know how to end this so whatever is the most ridiculous thing you can come up with - throw it in." So overall the episode I don't think holds up. City Sushi had some funny elements, I just thought the "reveal" of the city sushi guy not being asian was odd for being odd.
I am an apple fan and even I thought "Humancent-iPad" was funny! Funnybot was great with the German's thing and the Star Trek thing, and most importantly "Token stop giving Tyler Perry money, or he won't leave."
T.M.I. gives a great shot at the proven ridiculous body mass index thing (ridiculous in there is no consistency to it.Read more ›
