The reason behind why there are no commentaries on this set.,
This review is from: South Park - The Complete First Season (DVD)For all of us who have this first boxed set of dvds, PLEASE just enjoy them for the sake of the episodes themselves, and for the funny intros by Matt and Trey. HOWEVER, I recently read in a brief news article the answer to everyone's major complaint: why there is no commentary track on the episodes!
According to the article, Matt and Trey did record commentaries, but Warner Home video was NOT pleased with some of the things Matt and Trey had to say - especially regarding other Warner Video titles that Matt and Trey depicted in a not-so-nice light. When Warner told them to change the commentaries, Matt and Trey said NO WAY - seems they are sick of the studios trying to tell them what's funny and what they can include in their own show - and they got fed up and pulled the commentary tracks from the dvds.
I ordered my own set of commentaries with the special offer from the website the day after the DVDs were released. That is fine with me. I would MUCH rather Matt and Trey be true to their vision of the great "South Park" than to bow down to what any studio wants them to do. Long Live "South Park"!!
