Comedy, Lenny Bruce once said, is tragedy plus time. Less than two months--hardly any time at all--had elapsed after September 11 when South Park broadcast an episode that addressed the tragedy. Wit and satire have their place, of course, but in the aftermath of epochal upheaval, sometimes good old-fashioned ridicule can diminish an enemy and help to heal a grieving nation. The Emmy-nominated episode "Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants" does the cathartic trick, as Cartman plays Bugs Bunny to Osama's Elmer Fudd with a series of humiliating pranks, one of which reveals Osama's miniscule Bin Laden. "This is how we deal with stuff," creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone remark during the "commentary-mini," a listening option on each episode. In this fifth season, "It Hits the Fan," to quote the title of the notorious season-opening episode, in which the "S" word is uttered a staggering 162 times. In another series milestone, "Kenny Dies," and actually stays dead (at least until season 6). One of South Park's best characters gets his own half hour in "Butters' Very Own Episode," while one of the series' absolute worst, "Towelie," also gets his. Over the course of these 14 episodes, many life lessons are learned about sex education ("Proper Condom Use"), prejudice ("Here Comes the Neighborhood") and stereotypes ("The Entity"). But perhaps the most valuable lesson is: "Don't tick off Cartman," as witness his diabolical revenge against the unfortunate ninth grader who rips him off in "Scott Tenorman Must Die."

The genius of South Park is its uncanny ability to make satiric hay with such otherwise sure-fire comedy killers as aborted fetuses, concentration camps, and cancer (which becomes instantly funny when the words "up the a**" are added to it, and funnier still when spoken by actual members of Radiohead). 2001 was a rough year for America, and while this country's "problems" provide Stone and Parker with a fount of material (most of it objectionable), we can take odd comfort that they remain vigilant in rooting for their "team." --Donald Liebenson

The fifth season is almost here and after the excellent season four (much better than season three, in my opinion) I can't wait. Season 5 has two of my all-time favorite South Park episodes: Proper Condom Use and How to Eat with Your Butt. Anyway, here are the season 5 episodes in all their glory so you can prepare your stomach muscles for loads of laughter come March 1:

It Hits the Fan: The S-word is becoming popular due to a tv show pursuit of higher ratings. The Knights of Standards and Practices is unleashed on the nation.

Cripple Fight: Big Gay Al is fired as scout master. This episodes marks the debut of Jimmy who is not given a warm welcome by the jealous Timmy.

Super Best Friends: A cult led by magician David Blaine brainwashes the kids.

Scott Tenorman Must Die: Cartman seeks revenge on an eighth grader. Special guests: Radiohead.

Terrance and Phillip Behind the Blow: Terrance and Phillip are breaking up??

Cartmanland: Cartman wants to use his inheritance to build an amusement park in his image (must be a fat amusement park).

Proper Condom Use: As part of their sex education training, Mr. Mackey and Ms. Choksondik get down! One of my all-time favorites.

Towelie: A stoned towel and government conspiracies can't get in the way of the South Park kids playing their video game.

Osama Bin Laden Has F**ty Pants: The boys want to help the children of Afghanistan and end up taking on the Taliban.

How To Eat With Your Butt: My favorite of this season! Kenny has a picture of his butt taken on school photo day and Cartman has it put on a milk carton. A couple with the same affliction arrive in South Park. Tears came to my eyes when I first saw this one as I was laughing so hard.

Scott Tenorman Must Die- Cartman goes medieval on Scott Tenorman's ass when ginger-haired Scott tricks our supple hero into buying his pubic hair for $16.12. Radiohead guest stars and plays a role in Cartman's elaborate scheme at getting sweet revenge on his unsuspecting foe.

It Hits the Fan- The you-know-what hits the fan a 162 times when the citizens of South Park hear the word "Sh*t" on the popular show, "Cop Drama." Boffo ratings have the executives at HBC plotting further use of the curse word, as the nation is struck by a mysterious plague that unleashes the ancient Knights of Standards and Practices. Only Chef and the boys can save South Park, and the world.

Cripple Fight- Big Gay Al returns to South Park, only to be thrown out as Scoutmaster to the boys for being gay. The boys rally to his defense, with the help of the new "handi-capable" kid, Jimmy. But there's only room for one crippled kid in South Park, so Timmy and Jimmy throw off the gloves, as well as the crutches and wheelchair, in an all out slugfest to end all slugfests.

Super Best Friends- Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny discover David Blaine, magician and Cult Leader. Stan finds out early that the Blainiacs are not as nice as they thought. Stan has to convince Kyle, Kenny and Cartman that they've been brainwashed... but will he get to them in time? Jesus has a few tricks up his sleeve! Super Best Friends to the rescue!

Terrance and Phillip: Behind the Blow- In the grand tradition of Wham UK, flatulant Canadian superstars, Terrance and Phillip, have broken up over creative differences. The clock is ticking as the boys struggle to reunite the fartastic duo, and recruit them in time for South Park's Earth Day festivities.

With Season 5 you can tell "South Park" is taking a new direction. Prior to this season you might get an occasional topical show like "Cartman's Hate Crime" where Trey Parker and Matt Stone would tackle a hot issue of the day, but for the most part up through season four, "South Park" avoided addressing current issues. Season 5 addresses the attacks of 9/11, airport security, sex education in public schools and homosexuality in boy scouts to name just a few. Cartman, Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Butters find themselves neck deep int the current events of 2001....and for the most part the shows work really well. It seems Parker and Stone realized that to amp up the shock value always found on their show, a singing Christmas poo was good, but not as good as grabbing something from the headlines and taking an unpopular, or a stance that isn't politically correct. The humor with season 5 is much darker as well. Cartman's extreme revenge on Scott Tenorman, Chef's explanation of God's plan, the actions of Butter's Mother etc...are all very dark, and twisted, but still funny. I enjoyed this season, maybe not as much as the previous four, but still found it worth adding to my collection. Just be prepared for quite a different "South Park" when you buy this collection.

This was a fun season. Many episodes touch on events of the time and take dark humor to a new level.

Out of all of them I liked: It Hits the Fan, Cripple Fight, Proper Condom use, and Butters Very Own Episode the best.

The addons are only commentaries which I haven't listened to yet.

Scott Tenorman Must Die- Cartman finds an arch-nemesis that he just can't seem to best. How far will Cartman go? Even Stan and Kyle are surprised at the outcome of a Chili cook-off. Radiohead makes an appearance.

It Hits the Fan- This was a funny episode as you have a counter on screen to keep count of the amount of times the word "**it" is said. Everybody starts saying it and in turn releases an ancient plague on the world. .

Cripple Fight- In response to a real story where a gay scout master was tossed from scouting, we have the same situation were Big Gay Al is running the local troop. Some people complain and the Scouts fire him. We meet Jimmy the "Handi-capable" kid who helps the boys try and get Al back as scoutmaster. People like Jimmy which raises the ire of Timmy. They eventually get into a major slug fest. It's wrong but I found it funny "I told you to put on the hat!"

Super Best Friends- David Blaine appears with his cult of Blainiacs. Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman join the cult and Stan tries to save them. He goes to Jesus and with the help up his Super Best Friends, they attempt the rescue. Interesting note: Mohammad is one of the friends.

Terrance and Phillip: Behind the Blow- Terrance and Phillip break up! The typical reason for the breakup? Creative differences. The boys try to get their favorite duo to reunite.

Cartmanland- Cartman inherits a million dollars. What to do?
