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 ›
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 ›
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 ›
