The easily-offended need not apply, as this fifth season proves to be one of the show's most joyously offensive and darkly humoured. Beginning with "Scott Tenorman Must Die", one of the show's most famous, and most-loved, episodes. One of the most shockingly, and guiltily, funny episodes of the show ever. Then there's the infamous "It Hits The Fan", a mocking episode in which a certain word is repeated uncensored 162 times in total. Then there's the tongue-in-cheek "Cripple Fight", followed by scientology/David Blaine spoof "Super Best Friends", followed by change-in-style "Terrence & Phillip: Behind the Blow" installment, and then one of my personal favourites in the hernia-inducingly funny "Cartmanland".
From there, "South Park: Series 5" only pushes the limit on offensiveness and in-your-face satire. The crude and brilliant "Proper Condom Use", the iffy "Towelie" is the weakest episode of the bunch, "Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants" is a hilarious spoof of the old Bugs Bunny vs Elmer Fudd 'tunes', "How to Eat with Your Butt" isn't particularly brilliant in its methods but gets you laughing easily, "The Entity" is a trend-setter in the series where Cartman fully transcends into the hateful, idiotic racist we know today, "Here Comes the Neighborhood" isn't one of the series' best but does alright, and "Kenny Dies" sees Kenny leave the show completely -- if only until the end of season 6.Read more ›
Languages and subtitles are as follows:
Languages: English German Spanish.
Subtitles: English Danish Dutch Finnish German Norwegian Spanish Swedish.
The only extras are short commentaries on each episode from the two creators of the show. These are well worth a listen because they never go on longer than five minutes and they're funny and articulate and interesting to listen to. Although there is the occasional bit of uncensored strong language in these.
Episodes are as follows:
It hits the fan: A cop show is about to use a certain swear word uncensored. But as a result people discover why they used to be called curse words. This episode uses one of them five hundred times. And keeps an onscreen counter of how many times it does that. It's a very clever and funny look at how we regard strong language.
Cripple fight: The boys fight for gay rights when their scoutmaster is banned for being gay. And Wheelchair bound Timmy gets jealous of Paraplegic Jimmy. The fight scene to end all fight scenes results.
Super best friends: Satires scientology with David Blaine setting up his own cult. And Stan turning to Jesus for help fighting back. Along with the latter's special friends. This episode does do things in the satire of old 70's superhero cartoon super friends, which many may not be familiar with, but that shouldn't stop you enjoying it.Read more ›
"Scott Tennerman must Die" was genius, as was "Proper Condom Use". The only episode that wasn't that funny was "Here Comes the Neighbourhood"
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.
