South Park: The Complete Tenth Season
There are so many major issues dealt with in these
episodes, the mini-commentaries explore all of the social forces at work.
The recurring theme is that every time they do an episode, it makes news,
so they have to do another one.
DVD Review: South Park- The Complete Tenth Season
The "Return of Chef" episode has a background
more detailed than I knew. Their comments about Family Guy are
fair and well reasoned. The fact that Mohammed remained the least talked
about issue of the trio is fascinating.
It's really wonderful to hear these top satirists forced to analyze their
craft. They would just riff otherwise, and their riffs are fantastic also,
but when you are this brilliant, I want to hear what you really think.
Episodes like the Hybrid cars get the boys going on spontaneous social comedy
riffs. The Stephen McTowelie episode has a long artistic history, and it's
too bad they do not include the deleted eight minutes on the DVD. That would
have been a given.
The two parter on religion and the Wii reveals very personal struggles within
Trey and Matt. Pretty much all the iffy episodes are explained in full.
It's all good stuff worth listening to, and they seem to go on a bit longer
here than on previous season.
South Park: The Complete Tenth Season is out on DVD tomorrow,
