The show reaches a peak after the previous series' slump,
This review is from: South Park: Complete Series 4 [DVD] (DVD)
South Park, at first almost underground, exploded into a merchandising machine that polarised opinions - the PC brigade predictably loathed it, the original fans were sceptical of the commercialisation and the myriad fans of the Simpsons decided the show encroached on their exclusive territory and refused the possibility anyone could enjoy BOTH.
There was an undeniable dip in the quality of the show, but this series restored the intelligent satire that the show thrived upon. Mature takes on racism, disability and the American legal system were exaggerated to the brink of feasability, just as all good satire should be.
If you can look beyond simplistic stigmatism and appreciate the difference between lampooning and praising, this is the show for you, and the series you'll most enjoy.
