5.0 out of 5 stars The secret origin of Professor Chaos, 24 Feb 2012
This review is from: South Park - Season 6 (re-pack) [DVD] (DVD)
A new dvd edition of season six 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 seventeen 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.

This season takes place after the death of Kenny in season five, and sees Butters take over as the fourth member of the group. A the start of the run, at any rate...

Episodes are as follows:

'Jared has Aides' has a man who's lost a lot of weight visit town to spread the message of his slimming programme. The boys see an opportunity. And a misunderstanding has consequences. A great season opener with inspired comedy of misunderstanding and some pointed satire about people's attitudes to tragedies.

'Asspen' is a parody of certain 80's romantic comedies, and sees Stan unwillingly caught up in the middle of a situation that could have come from one of those films when on a skiing holiday. Whilst the grown ups struggle not to buy time shares. Full of clever movie references that should make you smile.

'Freak Strike' has the boys try to get Butters onto a talk show, in a funny look at that kind of programme.

'Fun with veal' has Stan not reacting too well to finding out how cows are treated. Watch for a funny parody of news coverage and a surprise guest star. Sort of.

'The New Terrance and Phillip movie trailer' takes the mickey out of Russell Crowe and cinema trailers.

'Professor Chaos' sees Butters develop a dark side. That's about as effective as he is. In a clever mickey take of Supervillain origin stories.

'The Simpsons already did it' parodies the struggles of South Park writers not to duplicate Simpsons plotlines, as Butters has trouble not doing the same.

'Red hot Catholic love' looks at a recent scandal to hit the catholic church. And in addition to being quite positive about religion also contains some superb parodies of a couple of old bits of pop culture.

'Free Hat' sees the boys trying to stop movie directors re-releasing and reworking their films. And has a superb advert in the middle.

'Bebe's boobs destroy society' shows how men revert to their baser instincts when confronted by a certain bit of female anatomy.

'Child abduction is not funny' satirises media overraction and the building of the great wall of china. And it being damaged.

'A ladder to heaven' satirises emotional overraction to tragedies as the boys try to see Kenny again.

'The return of the fellowship of the ring to the two towers' is a clever reworking of the Lord of the Rings. And shows how kids react to seeing certain adult things.

'The death camp of tolerance' does the movie parody nobody else would dare. And introduces Mr Garrison's new friend. And a very brave gerbil. The latter does divide opinion as a character.

'The biggest douche in the universe' satirises mediums and movie trailers. And teaches you a lot about the former.

'My future self 'n me' looks at parental overraction in trying to warn children about the dangers of certain things. And has a brilliant sitcom parody.

'Red sleigh down' parodies a certain movie as Santa comes to grief on a mission of mercy. And features a couple of surprise fates for certain characters.

South Park by this time was firing on all cylinders, and this was another great season as a result.
