On the same week they debuted the premier of the fourteenth season by tackling the ridiculous Tiger Woods saga in a hilarious episode aptly titled “Sexual Healing,” the creative minds at South Park gave the world a refresher course about how they do things by releasing the prior season on a three-disc DVD and Blu-ray collection.
As all of us have witnessed, animated implies that remain on the air for this duration of time have a tendency to decline in quality, leaving many fans longing for the creativity and freshness in the show’s original peak of success. Fortunately for fans of South Park Streaming, the show and it’s creators defy the chances and then produce solid, well-scripted implies that are just as good, if not better than the show’s heyday.
South Park: The Complete Thirteenth Season offers nothing new so far as the way the show works, keeping true towards the social satirical formula originally created by the 2 patriarchs of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone. In essence, both men take headlines from both pop culture and world news and parody them to express their personal opinions on the matter through four young children form a little Colorado town and the herd of oddballs that surround them. The end result is normally crude, offensive and incredibly hilarious.
A number of the events that Parker and Stone tackled in Season Thirteen are The Jonas Brothers as well as their “purity” rings, piracy in Somalia, the death of both Billy Mays and Michael Jackson, The Dark Knight and the Japanese along with their obsession with butchering dolphins and whales.
Needless to say in some instances, Parker and Stone will craft a show not out of a headline but alternatively out from the pure hatred that this two have garnered for any certain celebrity, thus being the case for your infamous “Fishsticks” episode where the show takes on rapper Kanye West along with his rumored massive ego buy ultimately portraying him being a “gay fish.” The show even comes designed with a parody from the rapper’s hit song “Heartless” with slightly modified lyrics.
And then obviously you will find the episodes which have no hidden messages or celebrity target whatsoever and instead just concentrate on placing one of many shows central characters in an absurd situation and crafting the comedy across the chaos that ensues. Much like “Butters’ Bottom Bitch,” an episode where Leopold “Butters” Stotch pays a woman $5 to offer him his first kiss and ultimately eventually ends up transforming into a pimp.
The positive aspect of Season Thirteen, and many other seasons of South Park for that matter, is the fact even the shows that don’t receive all of the attention and take on the controversial topics still allow you to laugh hysterically due to both Parker and Stone’s immature yet wonderful senses of humor. As is the case with “Pinewood Derby,” an episode where Stan’s father Randy Marsh (possibly the best character on the show) works together with all the leaders around the world to get earth banned through the universe’s intergalactic community making use of their dishonesty. There is not any real point towards the episode at all, but make an effort to sit through all of it and never laugh your ass off. I dare you.
And even when an episode’s main plot isn’t performing it for you personally, there always appears to be a sub-plot that will help keep you consistently chuckling throughout, like Kyle not being able to wrap his head around the fact that Cartman will continue to eat out at Chipotle although it makes his rectum bleed. Of course Cartman doesn’t see a problem with this because his mother flkzau his underwear with all the Billy Mays promoted “Chipotlaway” cleaning solution, thus solving the problem.
Purchasing South Park: The Entire Thirteenth Season needs to be a no-brainer for fans of the show as it’s a season among many which has episodes than can be watched numerous times without getting boring. I mean, seriously, who might get sick of hearing Cartman’s toe-tapping rendition of Lady Gaga’s Pok.er Face? Not me.
But if that’s inadequate for you personally and you think you’re content with just watching the show on Comedy Central, get the DVDs for your mere fact that you will get to watch the episodes with the profanity that Matt Stone and Trey Parker intended. It’s worth the price of admission alone.
