Fourth Times-a-Charm Apr 19, 2004

7. Cherokee Hair Tampons: Kyle becomes sick and needs a new kidney, and Cartman is his last hope. (a.k.a. The Cheech and Chong episode).
8. Chef Goes Nanners: (Never saw this episode, heard is good).
9. Something You Can Do With Your Finger: The boys start a boy band called "Fingerbang".
10. Do The Handicapped Go To Hell? (Part 1): The boys learn about confession and Saddam Hussein comes back into Satan's love life.
11. Probably (Part 2): Cartman teaches kids the joys of Christianity and Satan does it with Saddam...again!

13. Trapper Keeper: Cartman gets a Dawson's Creek Trapper Keeper that holds a secret to destruction.

One of the best seasons of South Park... Dec 31, 2005
(Edited, 3rd December 2007)
This season of South Park should be sealed in a time capsule for future generations to enjoy. Here are my views on each episode:
401- The Tooth Fairy's Tats 2000 9/10 Introduction of Timmy is cool
402- Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000 9/10 One of the first South Parks I ever saw on Fathers Day, 2004.
403- Timmy! 2000 9/10 This is where my old username comes from!
404- Qunituplets 2000 8/10 Not as good as the other 2000s
405- Cartman Joins NAMBLA 15/10 This is by far the best of South Park Season 4
406- Cherokee Hair Tampons 10/10 Another episode I watched on Fathers Day 2004, pretty gross as well
407- Chef Goes Nanners 9/10 Another episode I watched on Fathers Day 2004, I like the flag designs
408- Something You Can Do With Your Finger 10/10 Great rip on boybands any year!
409- Do The Handicapped Go To Hell? 9/10 Satan, Saddam and Chris make an awesome love triangle
410- Probably 11/10 I made myself wait a really long week to see this! It was worth it.
411- Fourth Grade 10/10 Great introduction to the boys in 4th Grade.
412- Trapper Keeper 10/10 Also another great show, the world according to that episode would be falling apart by now!
413- Helen Keller, the Musical 9/10 A heartwarming Thanksgiving special
414- Great Expectations 7/10 Weakest from this season
415- Fat Camp 13/10 2nd best from this season
416- The Wacky Molestation Adventure 9/10 This was a cool episode, blaming the parents for molestation
417- A Very Crappy Christmas 10/10 My 2nd favourite Xmas episode- another episode I saw on Fathers Day 2004
My advice: Buy now before it's too late...

21st-century Jonathan Swift Sep 06, 2004
By William Sommerwerck
I love satire. I grew up in the '50s and '60s, when radio and TV satire was virtually non-existant. Stan Freberg's CBS-radio show lasted all of 15 unsponsored weeks. "Rocky & Bullwinkle" ran five years. And that was about it. (The insipid "That Was the Week that Was" hardly counts.) This was the era when Lenny Bruce was arrested for using dirty language in front of an audience that had willingly paid money to see his performance.
One might argue that the quantity and quality of satire is directly proportional to how courrupt society is -- or at least, how aware people are aware of the corruption. By that reasoning, we are living in extremely corrupt times.
The last decade has seen the best TV satire ever -- "The Simpsons," "Beavis and Butthead," "King of the Hill," "South Park," and "The Daily Show." Most of it's animated -- you can get away with stuff in cartoons you can never get away with live.
"South Park" gets away with _everything_ (including coprophagy and eating one's parents, who've been served up as a bowl of chile -- see Greek mythology; it's there, too -- the cannibalism, not the chile), short of graphic sex. There has never been a more rude, in-your-face TV show. And little of it is gratuitous.
Parker and Trey's principal targets are artistic and social trendiness, hypocrisy, political correctness, the failure of adults to listen to their children, and organized religion. (Not Christianity -- organized religion.) They're consistently on-target. No matter how outrageous the humor, they treat the material in a basically honest fashion, refusing (mostly) to take cheap shots. (When the world is as effed-up as it is, you don't _need_ to take pot shots.)
This is seen best in one of the most-outrageous episodes, "Cartman Joins NAMBLA." The paederasts are portrayed in a not-unsympathetic manner (they're not slavering monsters), and at the end, one of them is allowed a sincere speech -- delivered without archess or irony -- defending their point of view ("We mean no harm. This is the way we are," etc). Then Stanley pipes up. "You have sex with children. You just don't get it, do you?"
The politics of "South Park" are ambiguous. Trey and Parker could be Liberals with common sense, or Log Cabin Republicans. ("South Park" is consistently pro-gay, though in a subtle way.) Regardless, they have no hesitation attacking anything they think stupid or meretricious. (Look it up.) Which is almost everything.
Simply for its uncompromising, no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners attitude, I vote "South Park" as the best comedy that has yet appeared on American TV. Indeed, it is arguably the best "entertainment" program that has _ever_ been on TV. It's a shame Jonathan Swift didn't live to see it.

My favorite season yet on dvd. Jul 06, 2004
By J. A Hayes
I have never been a big fan of South Park, but really got into it when the season sets were released. I have seen the first three seasons, and while they are great, it only gets better in this season. The raunch and vulgarity you would expect from the show is even sharper in season 4, and you will find even more satire within the episodes. Ranging from issues such as race, government and boy bands, the creators of South Park spare no one. Many of my favorite episodes are contained in this set, a few being Cartman's Silly Hate Crime, Fat Camp, and Trapper Keeper. In Hate Crime, Cartman goes to prison for committing a crime against another race. Clearly pokes fun at the hate crime laws in this country with the message that crime is crime and should be punished accordingly. Many of the episode contain this kind of criticism and that is what makes the show much more than vulgar trash like some people think. Those are only 3 of my favorites though, and there are other classic episodes, NAMBLA definately being one. The only episode I don't care too much for is Pip, as it contains none of the South Park regulars. It isn't a horrible episode though. But as you can tell, the best episodes in my opinion are the Cartman-centric ones, as another reviewer put it.
The DVD package we get is okay, but I know there are many more extras we could have and should have gotten. Essentially there are only the mini-commentaries on some episodes, but other than 17 great episodes there is nothing else really exciting in this whole set. This may disappoint some fans of the show, but I am just happy to own the complete season 4 that I can watch whenever I feel like doing so. I think if these sets were $10-$15 cheaper it would be a fair price, but I do feel like the $49.99 SRP is too high. Usually I would care, but this is South Park and this is a show worthy of being overpriced if there is any. So to wrap it up, I recommend saving your $$$ and buying this set, the best season released to dvd so far. 17 classic episodes are here that every South Park fan should own.
