What's not hilarious however, is that this DVD IN FACT has the CENSORED VERSION ONLY of Episode "201", the infamous (I'd better be careful here...) M******* episode. If you didn't know, episode "201" was censored heavily on its original broadcast on Comedy Central due to receiving terrorist threats from wannabe terrorists WHO LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES (remember, the land of free speech?). These guys are complete fugazi terrorists, no danger at all, just wannabes. In fact, all that this "terrorist" group does is make racist and bigoted cartoons and skits of their own (MUCH more offensive than South Park, check it out on the net... I won't provide the link, b/c the cartoons and skits are AWFUL, and I don't think Amazon lets you print links anyhow.) The DVD version of the episode is proceeded by a message that says, "This episode appears exactly as it did on Comedy Central's original broadcast." Oh, how my heart sank. Not only is it censored, but you can't even get any insight into the censored closing statements, because if you listen to the commentary from Trey and Matt, they have been SCARED by Comedy Central into not even talking about the controversy (Trey admits it on the commentary), due to the fact that they would "probably just take it off anyways," Trey says. That's really what the commentary track consists of: Trey and Matt talking about how they can't talk about the censorship. The only good part of the commentary is the great joke the guys pull at the end of it... I don't want to spoil it for anyone though, because I thought it was a great satiric jab at the situation.Read more ›
As one of the many, many South Park fans here on Earth, I appreciate not only the clever humor, but most especially the social commentary. Usually this valuable and timely satire was sandwiched between enough laughter that it was at least "Tolerated" by viewers seeking only mere entertainment.
The fact that South Park is a prime-time animated show on a cable network helped to keep it "Under the radar" of all but the most extreme of those who consider themselves to be our "Moral Police". The phenomenon that many of the most vocal opponants of the show had not actually SEEN the show helped to dismiss the critics and place their criticisms on the fringe. To most of the "General Public" that has never seen an episode of South Park, the show was considered to be nothing more than a string of flatulence jokes.
Unfortunately, the days of hiding "Under the Radar" have ended. The world turned their attention to South Park, Colorado, and Comedy Central proved themselves to be spineless and short-sighted.
South Park's initial inspiration was Archie Bunker from "All in the Family", a character who Matt & Trey absolutely adored but agreed could never appear on today's P.C. television programs. Their idea was to create that same freedom of humor in a format that could escape comparisons to traditional television comedies. They settled on animation for this format, and so was born Eric Cartmsn, one of the most despicable characters to ever appear on television (and deliberately so). Matt and Trey felt that the animated format would allow them to be ignored by the critics and dismissed as frivolous (and thus harmless). This plan worked right up until Season 14.Read more ›
This is not Matt and Trey's fault. They have the guts rip on anyone and anything. Comedy Central needs to grow a set of balls. South Park has ripped on just about every major religion in the world and Comedy Central allowed the broadcasting of those episodes. But along comes Islam and Comedy Central censors everything about it.
COMEDY CENTRAL! QUIT BEING THE COWARDS YOUR ARE AND RELEASE THE UNCUT UNCENSORED VERSION OF EPISODE 201!!!!
