Product Description

All 14 episodes from the eighth season of the popular animated comedy series. During this season, Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny again find themselves at the centre of a number of hot political issues and celebrity shenanigans. Episodes comprise: 'Good Times With Weapons', 'Up the Down Steroid', 'The Passion of the Jew', 'You Got F'd in the A', 'AWESOM-O', 'The Jeffersons', 'Goobacks', 'Douche and Turd', 'Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes', 'Pre-School', 'Quest for Ratings', 'Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset', 'Cartman's Incredible Gift' and 'Woodland Critter Christmas'.

From Amazon.co.uk

To quote Bad Day at Black Rock, a man is as big as what'll make him mad. By this criteria, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are giants. Fanaticism of any stripe, steroids, vapid pop culture icons marketed as role models for impressionable youth, and mass merchants encroaching on small town life are just some of the hot button issues tackled in South Park's eighth season. Of course, South Park is not above (or beneath) stooping to conquer, as witness "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset," which climaxes in a "whore-off" featuring--you guessed it--Paris Hilton. Sure, Paris is an easy target, as is Michael Jackson (portrayed in the episode "The Jeffersons" not as a child molester, but as an infantile parent who needs to grow up). But just as a segment of the population tunes in to The Daily Show to get Jon Stewart and company's satirical take on the day's news, so do South Park fans eagerly await Parker and Stone's perspective on the zeitgeist. Which brings us to the season's most infamous episode, "The Passion of the Jew," in which Kyle is devastated by Mel Gibson's brutalising epic, Cartman is transformed into Gibson's Hitlerian apostle, and an unimpressed Stan and Kenny try in vain to get their money back from Gibson himself, a loony toon with a penchant for torture. And while Janet Jackson's Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction is old news, South Park's response, "Good Times with Weapons," remains a relevant satire of misplaced parental priorities, not to mention an anime-stylised tour-de-force in which the boys purchase martial arts weapons at a county fair and imagine themselves as ninja warriors.

In one of Stone and Parker's candid mini-commentaries, available as a listening option on each episode, the duo grade this season a B+. Give them extra credit, then, for such seriously (or hilariously) twisted episodes as the one (whose title cannot be printed here) that sends up the film You Got Served, and the instant holiday classic "Woodland Critter Christmas," with its Satan-worshiping forest creatures, and a brilliant surprise ending that echoes Chuck Jones's classic cartoon Duck Amuck, in which the unseen animator tormenting poor Daffy is revealed to be none other than Bugs "Ain't I a stinker?" Bunny. --Donald Liebenson

Format: DVD
This is a cartoon, but in case anyone looking at this is not sure what South Park is, I'll be helpful; it is a very adult cartoon, crudely drawn but vivid in its satire of mainly America, but also just people. It has a lot of crude action and language too, so if you're looking for kid's cartoons, go back to the search page.

This season of the show is arguably one of the best; the best laughs are had from the boys being boys.

For anyone who is new to more recent episodes, Butters and Cartman are a new kinetic force in the series, and produce some of the best material of late. Previous seasons gave us 'Casa Bonita' and 'Jared had Aides' as tasters. This season has 'Awesom-O', which ranks among the best episodes for non-political yet brilliant humour that milks the duo for everything they're worth. Other classics include 'The Passion of the Jew' which looks at the impact of Gibson's Passion movie as a potential cause of anti-Semitism (classic Kyle vs. Cartman), and 'Good Times with Weapons', the season opener, which is... well, it's a manga homage and again, it's a winner.

'The Jeffersons', 'Goobacks' (a clever immigration satire) and the um, P.Hilton episode with its hilarious ending featuring Mr Slave at his best, the no-politics 'Pre-School' (another great) and Cartman as a feux psychic in 'Cartman's Incredible Gift' all make this a great set.

South Park is, sadly, misunderstood; it takes free speech to non-violent extremes, agreed, but the guys have a lot of interesting things to say, and episodes like 'Up the Down Steroid' get incorrect labelling as making fun of people with disabilities. I say 'look again'; don't turn off as soon as something _appears_ to be crossing the line, because their humour often relies on open-mindedness, objectivity and patience. They are irreverant, and such people are necessary to test the strength of the things they criticise.

Format: DVD
A new dvd edition of season eight of the cult tv cartoon South Park. This is just the same as the previous version, just in slightly slimmer packaging with a different box cover.

All fourteen episodes of the season are here, spread over three discs.

Languages and subtitles are as follows:

Languages: English, German, Spanish.

Subtitles: English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, German, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish.

The only extras are a commentary on each episode from the two creators of the show. These can contain uncensored strong language but they're short - never more than five minutes in length - interesting, and often very funny, so they're well worth a listen.

Episodes are as follows:

'Good times with weapons.' Sees the boys buy ninja weapons and get into a lot of trouble as a result. This changes the animation to make them look like anime characters at certain points, which is something you may love or hate. But if you love it then you'll throughly enjoy it. The ending does reference something that was big in the news at the time the episode was made but probably won't be remembered by many now though.

'Up the down steroid,' has Cartman enter the special olympics in a bid to win gold. And Jimmy trying to do the same via taking steroids. There are some great moments of comedy here in a fun episode with a very satisfying pay off.

'The Passion of the Jew' has the boys sees the Mel Gibson movie and experience differing reactions. And find that the director is not a man to be messed with. Not an episode the creators of the show seem too keen on, but it is pretty clever and funny.

A strong contender for the best ever season of South Park. Almost every episode is very good, with the vast majority being fantastic. I think there are more 'classic' episodes on season 8 than on any other.

Simply awesome. Simply buy it!

Another very amusing set of episodes and great to see Kenny back dying again! This season only had 14 episodes rather than the normal 15. Some really great episodes making fun of things that need to be made fun of. Made me laugh!

I am not sure what these guys are taking, but they certainly get stranger and further out with every season. The actual standard of presentation has improved. If you are easily offended, then you should not be watching.

Because I was a bit disappointed with seasons 6 and 7, I only rented season 8 from Amazon LoveFilm - big mistake ! - it was so good I will ultimately have to buy it !
As an antidote for Political Correctness it pushes-out the boundaries even further - usually OK in-context, very clever, and very funny !

fan of south park since the 1st season, i could not resist to buy them on DVD.
Despite what people say it's a very clever show. I think you can't watch south park in different level. If I have to summarise, one level is the simplistic gags and vusua.
The other level is what are the point of view of the creator of the serie about a given subject or their view in life.

South Park with Futurama are my two favorite american's cartoon TV. If you look back from season 1, the graphics/animation are still OK and compare to the most recent seasons but you can't help to notice an improvement.
Also I have to say there are some very catchy music which in my point of view are better than some pop music of today.

If you like to see better show than Family guy (personal point of view). Just go for it, you won't regret it.
