All 14 episodes from the ninth 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: 'Mr. Garrison's Fancy New Vagina', 'Die Hippie, Die', 'Wing', 'Best Friends Forever', 'The Losing Edge', 'The Death of Eric Cartman', 'Erection Day', 'Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow', 'Marjorine', 'Follow That Egg', 'Ginger Kids', 'Trapped in the Closet', 'Free Willyzx' and 'Bloody Mary'.
Nine seasons in, and South Park hasn’t lost its ability to upset people. This boxset brings together the 14 episodes from the ninth season, including the hugely controversial “Trapped In The Closet”, which is actually one of the weaker inclusions here (and we somehow doubt that it’s Tom Cruise’s favourite, either). However, it garnered headlines for its tale of Stan taking a Scientology test, and the repercussions of it.
That said, this particular series of South Park has much more to commend it. Across the episodes in what can be easily described as a lively season you’ll find the gang starting their own talent agency, a hippie music festival coming into town, and the small matter of Mr Garrison switching gender. All of this is the foundation for a rapid-fire collection of gags.
What South Park isn’t given credit for often enough though is what’s bubbling up under the surface. The reason creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone never seem to run out of ideas is that very often they have something to say with their episodes. And while, on one level, they can be enjoyed for being the quick hits of outrageous fun they are, there’s a wise intelligence in the midst of it all, too. Perhaps that’s why the show still shows no signs of running out of steam, and season nine is the latest evidence to back that up. --Jon FosterSee all Product description

Each episode has a brief commentary from the two creators of the show. Very funny and very articulate and they say all that needs to be said about an episode in no more than four to five minutes so they are all worth listening to.
Episodes as follows:
Mr. Garrisons fancy new vagina. Mr Garrison gets a sex change operation - brief footage of a real one taking place is not for the squeamish - and Kyle tries to become a successful basketball player. It gets to brilliantly absurd levels in regards to body altering and there's a great scene where Kyle finds sympathy from Cartman can be in short supply.
Die Hippie Die sees Cartman dealing with a hippie convention as the other boys find out that their lifestyle is not all it's cracked up to be.
Wing gives a showcase to oriental singer wing as the boys become talent agents.
Best friends forever puts south parks spin on the right to withdraw life support and also throws in clever and knowing satire of the third lord of the rings film.
The losing edge is the anthesis of baseball movies.
The death of eric cartman sees him finally push the others too far and take the consequences the wrong way. Classic comedy of misunderstanding.
Erection day has schoolboy jimmy take the onset of puberty to exteme lengths in another that heights up the levels as it goes along.
Two days before the day after tomorrow is a parody of the day after tomorrow and satire of the poor response to hurricane katrina. And it has one of the funniest final scenes ever.
Marjorine sees butters fake his death in order to pose as a girl to steal a valuable item from the local girls. But his parents try to resurrect him. It's funny but as Trey Parker says on the commentary it throws in too many ideas and thus the end rather peters out.
Follow that egg satirises legalising gay marriage as mr garrison goes against it for his own ends.
Ginger kids finds cartman responding to kyle's attempts to teach him a lesson about prejudice.
Trapped in the closet is a merciless attack on scientology and it led to Isaac Hayes leaving the show. Unlike other religions South Park has satirised it finds no redeeming features to scientology. But if you can get past that it's very funny. And the end credits are very clever. A bit disappointingly the commentary is rather worthelss as they state that they don't feel like talking about the episode anymore, having said lots about it already in other media.
Free Willzyx involves the boys trying to free a whale from a theme park and get it to the moon since they think it lives there. A simple but well executed idea and fun along the way.
Season finale Bloody Mary also came in for attack as it satirises the phenomeon of statues bleeding and the religious response to that. It also isn't too kind to alcoholics anonymous. But it's also very funny.
Nine years in and the show is at the top of it's game in another well presented box set.
While "Trapped in the closet" is infamous and has some very funny moments I'd still rate it as average compared to episodes like "Ginger Kids", "Death of earic Cartmann" and the aforementioned "Free Willzyx". The season really is that good and for under £11 it's worth having just for rewatch value and unmissable if you haven't already seen the season.
This season is fantastic involving several great episodes such as:
Mr Garrisons fancy new vagina (including great storyline involving plastic surgery)
The episode where Kenny must save the world using the golden psp, the scientology episode which lead to chef's departure, another where the boys become managers of the talented singer Wing, and the episode where the boys try their hardest to lose at baseball, and of course it cant be south park without cartman upsetting a group of people, in this season its ginger people.
So I would recomend seeing all the south park you can including this series.
