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 regarding how they do things by releasing the prior season on a three-disc DVD and Blu-ray collection.
As we all have witnessed, animated demonstrates that remain on the air for this particular duration of time often decline in quality, leaving many fans longing for your creativity and freshness from the show’s original peak of success. Fortunately for fans of South Park Streaming, the show and it’s creators defy the odds and then produce solid, well-scripted implies that are just pretty much as good, or even better than the show’s heyday.
South Park: The Whole Thirteenth Season offers nothing new as far as just how the show works, keeping true to the social satirical formula originally created by the 2 patriarchs of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Essentially, the two men take headlines from both pop culture and world news and parody them to express their personal opinions on the matter through four small children form a tiny Colorado town as well as the herd of oddballs that surround them. The effect is usually crude, offensive and incredibly hilarious.
Some of the events that Parker and Stone tackled in Season Thirteen would be the Jonas Brothers and their “purity” rings, piracy in Somalia, the death of both Billy Mays and Michael Jackson, The Dark Knight as well as the Japanese as well as their obsession with butchering dolphins and whales.
Needless to say in some cases, Parker and Stone will craft a show not from a headline but instead out from the pure hatred that the two have garnered for any certain celebrity, thus being the case for your infamous “Fishsticks” episode wherein the show takes on rapper Kanye West and his rumored massive ego buy ultimately portraying him as being a “gay fish.” The show even comes equipped with a parody from the rapper’s hit song “Heartless” with slightly modified lyrics.
And after that of course you will find the episodes that have no hidden messages or celebrity target whatsoever and instead just concentrate on placing one of the shows central characters inside an absurd situation and crafting the comedy round the chaos that ensues. Much like “Butters’ Bottom Bitch,” an episode where Leopold “Butters” Stotch pays a lady $5 to offer him his first kiss and ultimately eventually ends up being a pimp.
The great thing about Season Thirteen, and lots of other seasons of South Park for that matter, is the fact even the demonstrates that don’t receive all of the attention and take on the controversial topics still cause you to laugh hysterically thanks 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 my personal favorite character on the show) works together with all the current leaders around the world to get earth banned from the universe’s intergalactic community with their dishonesty. There is no real point to the episode whatsoever, but make an effort to sit through it all and never laugh your ass off. I dare you.
And even when an episode’s main plot isn’t carrying it out to suit your needs, there always appears to be a sub-plot that can help you stay consistently chuckling throughout, like Kyle not being able to wrap his head around the truth that Cartman continues to eat at Chipotle although it can make his rectum bleed. Needless to say Cartman doesn’t see a problem with this because his mother flkzau his underwear with the Billy Mays promoted “Chipotlaway” cleaning solution, thus solving the situation.
Purchasing South Park: The Whole Thirteenth Season ought to be a no-brainer for fans in the show as it’s a season among many which contains episodes than can be watched numerous times without getting boring. I mean, seriously, who could get sick of hearing Cartman’s toe-tapping rendition of Lady Gaga’s Pok.er Face? Not me.
However, if that’s insufficient for you and also you think you’re content with just watching the show on Comedy Central, purchase the DVDs for your mere fact that you receive to watch the episodes with all of the profanity that Matt Stone and Trey Parker intended. It’s worth the price of admission alone.
