From Amazon.co.uk

There is nothing in South Park's seventh season to offend Tom Cruise (nothing about Scientology, at any rate; that will come in season 9). However, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, Rob Reiner, the Queer Eye guys, Christopher Reeve (!), war supporters and anti-war protesters, and Mormons, do not get off so easy. But, "Who cares?" as the townspeople sing in "I'm a Little Bit Country." What matters is that with this particular episode, South Park attained the precious, syndication-ready 100-episode mark! Another milestone: "Raisins," in which Wendy breaks up with Stan, who falls under the influence of the "Goth kids" ("If you want to be one of the non-comformists, all you have to do is dress just like us and listen to the same music we do").

Even by South Park standards, season 7 is pretty hardcore. In "Christian Rock Hard," Cartman is so determined to attain platinum album status before Kyle and his band that he forms a Christian rock group. The band's repertoire makes Tom Lehrer's once-scandalous "Vatican Rag" sound like "Oh, Happy Day." But mostly, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone take Cheney-like potshots at pop-culture notables. In "South Park Is Gay!", we discover what is really behind the "metrosexual" phenomenon and the true identity of the Queer Eye for the Straight Guy quartet. In "Butt Out," Rob Reiner is portrayed as a corpulent goo-filled "fascist" willing to the sanction murder (of Cartman) to further his anti-"Big Tobacco" agenda. As you can guess from the title, "Fat Butt and Pancake Head" is a merciless deconstruction of "Bennifer," as Cartman's Jennifer Lopez hand puppet dethrones the real thing, and attracts the amorous attention of Ben Affleck. "All About Mormons" anticipates the Scientology episode, "Trapped in the Closet" (not included here, and if lawyers have anything to say about it, might not be included in a season 9 set, either) with a straight-faced musical dramatization of the Joseph Smith story. "Everyone thought we were making stuff up to be funny," Parker and Stone relate in their mini commentary (optional for each episode). "But we're not. We're not making this stuff up in this show." Which is perhaps why the episode "Cancelled," which posits that Earth exists only as reality-TV fodder for aliens, doesn't seem so farfetched. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

South Park Series 7 continues in the same hilarious vain as its six predecessors. Classic moments such as Cartman's attempt on Kyle's life, Jimmy and Timmy joining the Crips and the boys' experimentation with metrosexuality are all featured in the hilarious seventh season. People bearing the brunt of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s dark comedic minds in this season include Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, Rob Reiner, the Queer Eye guys, Christopher Reeve, war supporters, anti-war protesters and Mormons. But, "Who cares?" as the townspeople sing in "I'm a Little Bit Country", the 100th episode. Series 7 doesn’t shy away from the more controversial story lines either – In Christian Rock Hard, Cartman is so determined to attain platinum album status before Kyle and his band, that he forms a Christian rock group. In South Park Is Gay! we discover what is really behind the metrosexual phenomenon and the true identity of the Queer Eye for the Straight Guy quartet. In Butt Out, Rob Reiner is portrayed as a corpulent fascist willing to the sanction murder of Cartman to further his anti-Big Tobacco agenda. As you can guess from the title, Fat Butt and Pancake Head is a merciless deconstruction of "Bennifer", as Cartman's Jennifer Lopez hand puppet dethrones the real thing, and attracts the amorous attention of Ben Affleck. "Everyone thought we were making stuff up to be funny," Parker and Stone relate in their mini commentary (optional for each episode). "But we're not. We're not making this stuff up in this show." Another must-buy series to add to your South Park collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic season - one of the best 30 April 2008
By nt_ccfc
Format:DVD
This is one of my personal favourite seasons, in which the show still continues its trend of excellence which had the bar raised in series 5. Series seven continues more of the controversial in "Krazy cripples", the episode that caused outrage for the use of Christopher Reeve and his `sick' attempt at renewing his super powers. Also excellent social commentry episodes such as "South Park is Gay" which is a satire on the metro-sexual trend and "Christain Rock Hard" which is a genius look at the whole illegal music download situation but the big laughs come from Cartman who starts his own christian rock band. I look forward to season eight next, but the bar is soon going to drop on this excellent standard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant season, but it's censored! 13 Feb 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This season has some fantastic episodes on it with some of my most memorable moments. One of the top ones is Jimmy and Timmy making their own club for disabled-from-birth people... but they find there's already a "club" called the Crips! Also notable are Cartman's determination to write "Christian songs", and his brief tryst with Ben Affleck. This is also the first time we see much of the Goth kids, who are at once laughable and likable.

There's a lot of great moments, many of them hilarious, some of them clever, exactly what you'd expect from South Park.

My only gripe (and one fans should be aware of) is that the episodes are censored. (i.e. "bleeped"). I believe some of the earlier ones are not available uncensored - I'm not sure if this applies here, but it's worth knowing. I for one can't really understand why they can't be released uncensored on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two bens and one jen. among others 2 Feb 2009
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
the complete seventh season of south park comes to dvd. there's no point in me describing the set up and basic idea of the show because there's no chance of anyone reading this who doesn't already know all about it. so let's look at the discs and the episodes.

fifteen episodes. five to a disc. all have language tracks in english german and spanish, and subtitles in english danish dutch finnish german norwegian spanish and swedish. the only extras on each discs are mini commentaries on each episode from trey parker and matt stone, the creators of the show. these are different from usual dvd commentaries because they only run about five minutes, during which time they will say all they have to say about the episode before moving on. two highly articulate and very amusing individuals, every one of these is well worth a listen.

episodes on disc one:

'cancelled': the boys discover earth is just a reality tv show and try to stop the aliens who make it cancelling the programme. very clever satire on reality tv.

'krazy kripples': cripples jimmy and timmy mistakenly join a street gang and christopher reeves goes a bit crazy in his attempts to walk again. tasteless, and it manages to satirise the fact that it goes too far, but also very funny.

'toilet paper': the boys toilet paper a house and cartman tries to deal with kyle's attack of remorse. featuring clever movie parodies and generally pretty funny.

'I'm a little bit country': an iraq war protest [this season dates from 2003] leads cartman to travel to 1776 to meet the founding father. the 100th episode of the show cleverly breaks the fourth wall and makes clever points about politics. great stuff.

I had to buy series 7 to complete my collection and having watched it again I have to say its way up there as one of the best pieces of work from Tray Parker and Matt Stone.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite SP seasons 28 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Seasons 6 through 10 are, in my opinion, Matt and Trey at their peak. And I always love their commentary-minis on these DVDs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 3 Dec 2013
Format:DVD
In my opinion, this is the best South Park series. It's rude, it's offensive and it covers a diverse range of topics. Krazy Kripples, Christian Rock Hard and Casa Bonita were the highlights for me. I would also like to add (not taking away from how awesome this set is) that I do prefer the old packaging. I have all the seasons in the old packaging and this new re pack looks so out of place in between them. However, that doesn't matter in the great scheme of things! I do wish they would uncensor the repack versions, I'm sure it wouldn't be that hard!?
