"These guys practiced and got really good at sucking"---Stan Mar 16, 2007
For the last few seasons, each new season of South Park became my favorite. The trend almost continued with Season 9 but I don't think it is quite as solid as Season 8, but close. Still there are several slam-dunk episodes in this set: "Mr. Garrison's Fancy New V---," "The Losing Edge," "The Death of Eric Cartman," "Follow That Egg," and "Bloody Mary." Either "Mr. Garrison's...," "Follow That Egg," or "Bloody Mary" is my favorite, it's difficult to choose. There are other excellent eps as well like "Best Friends Forever" (which won an Emmy), "Erection Day," "Two Days Before...," and "Marjorine." This set also has the controversial episode "Trapped in the Closet" about Tom Cruise and Scientology that caused the "Chef" Isaac Hayes falling out. Jam-packed with quality SP humor taking current events and issues waaaay over-the-top, here's what you get:
"Mr. Garrison's Fancy New V..." Kyle is depressed that Jew's can't play basketball. Inspired by Mr. Garrison's recent sex change, Kyle undergoes a "Negroplasty" (opposite of the "Caucasianplasty that Michael Jackson had). What he does not realize is that the procedure is only for cosmetic purposes.
"Die Hippie, Die": This is one of my least favorites of this season. Cartman detects signs of a Hippie Music Jam Festival forming in South Park, but is put in jail for locking them in the basement. When the town sees the hippies taking over, they seek Cartman's help. Cartman's plan: take out the hippies with Slayer.
"Wing": After Token wins a singing contest, the boys start a talent agency to try to cash in on Token's potential royalties. When another agent steals him away, the boys sign a new talent: The City Wok guy's wife who has a penchant for singing ABBA songs and has ties with the Asian Mafia.
"Best Friends Forever": Emmy award-winner. Did any fan of the early days of South Park see that coming? Kenny is so good at playing "Heaven v. Hell" on PSP that heaven has him killed so he can leave earth and command their armies. Before the big showdown, doctors on earth revive him to a "tomato" state where the big debate ensues. Interesting take on the "pull the plug" issue.
"The Losing Edge": The boys hate Little League and try to lose to end their season and Stan's dad's dreams...of beating up a father of the opposing team during the state championships. The Bat Dad: "You're about to be bat dadded!" Hilarious!
"The Death of Eric Cartman": Cartman has done many bad things, but eating the skin off the Colonel's chicken is the last straw. His friends all ignore him to the point where Cartman believes he is dead. He recruits the help of an ignorant Butters to try to give his soul peace to reach the other side.
"Erection Day": Jimmy is psyched to win the school's talent show but is having puberty issues. He goes on a quest to relieve his problem before his act, meeting Nut Gobbler. The Goth kids at the talent show play an anti-talent show song and then one of them says, "I hope we win."
"Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow": Stan and Cartman drive a boat into a giant beaver dam flooding the nearby town of Beaverton. While Stan is burdened down by guilt about the Beaverton residents stranded on their rooftops, the folks of South Park blame the event on global warming and barricade themselves from impending doom.
"Marjorine": Cartman convinces Butters to fake his own death and come back as the new girl in town so as to get invited to the girls' slumber party and steal their mysterious fortune-telling device.
"Follow That Egg": Excellent episode addressing the gay marriage issue as only SP can. "Mrs." Garrison's class is paired up with eggs to learn about parenting (Token's team is given a brown egg). After Mr. Slave gets engaged to Big Gay Al, Mrs. Garrison goes on a campaign against gay marriage and conducts an experiment in his class.
"Ginger Kids": Cartman starts vicious rumors about kids with red hair and freckles and they begin to be discriminated against. To teach Cartman a lesson, Stan, Kyle and Kenny sneak into Cartman's room, knock him out, and give him a ginger makeover. Cartman then starts the Ginger Separatist Movement. Cartman sees no irony in this.
"Trapped in the Closet": The Church of Scientology believes Stan is the reincarnation of L. Ron Hubbard. When Stan doesn't praise his acting skills, Hubbard-worshipper Tom Cruise hides away in Stan's closet. Meanwhile, Stan learns some disturbing things about scientology. Isaac Hayes fall-out episode.
"Free Willzyx": A performing Orca whale at the sea park can communicate with the boys who believe he must return to his native planet, the moon, or he will die. That composite sketch of the kids is great (especially Cartman and Kyle--although Kyle's mother doesn't think it is a good likeness).
"Bloody Mary": Stan's dad is busted for DUI and believes he has no power over his alcoholism disease. He needs a miracle. Good news! A statue of the Virgin Mary is bleeding out her...uh...posterior. Too funny!!!

Marjorine Rocks Mar 08, 2008
"South Park" is one of the most clever series programs in the entire history of American television. Because Trey & Matt (the creaters, cartoonists, writers, voices & just about everything else) have a percise acuteness to satire and comedy. Each season it only gets better. This series has never "jumped the shark" because "South Park" is the type of series that doesn't take themselves too serious and doesn't try to be anything they're not.
Season Nine (includes a total of fourteen eps) of this modern-day classic is hands down, bar none, perfect television viewing. Some of the highlights from this season include: Mrs. Garrison's gender reassignment operation, the sweet sounds of Wing, Jimmy taking matters into his own hands and of course who could forget about Tom Cruise being trapped in the perpetual closet! But my favorite ep from this season revolves around my favorite "South Park" resident, Eric Cartman; in this installmant, Cartman found out what it was like to be dead when the other boys killed him off in "The Death of Eric Cartman!"
I cannot wait for the Season Eleven Set to come out, later this year. And, next week is the Season Twelve Series premieres on "South Park" on Comedy Central!

Another great season and from what I've seen of the season 11 it shows no sign of slowing down! I can't wait until they release season 10.

Social Commentary with a Kick Mar 29, 2007
By Jon Hall
Genius. South Park has provided comic relief for todays problems for ten gut wrenching years. Story lines often seem to be plucked from the days headlines. Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Eric provide the laughs and social commentary, which echo true common sense. South Park is a counter move to the politically correct world in which we live. South Park is animation for adults plain and simple, and I hope to see the boys of South Park learn lessons and provide their unique brand of insight for many years to come.

NOT for the sensitive soul, but perfect for the rest of us! Jul 09, 2007
By Betty L. Dravis
"BETTY DRAVIS, author/reviewer"
I may be slow in seeing TV shows, but I spend all my time writing my own novels, reading and reviewing books, and watching and reviewing more mainstream movies, so I suppose that excuses me.
I hate to admit I have never seen even ONE episode of South Park on TV, but I've heard others raving about it, so I decided to order one from Netflix. But first I asked my granddaughter if it was "nasty" or simply raunchy. When she said "clever, hilarious, AND raunchy," I liked the sound of that, so ordered this Ninth Season.
I just finished watching it and must admit I laughed all the way through. The creators of this hilarious, up-to-date, animated comedy are "spot on" in covering riotous aspects of the "human condition" and making it appeal to the masses.
My favorite episode is the controversial "Trapped in the Closet," a satirical look at Scientology and Tom Cruise's. I admire Tom Cruise's acting ability (and dislike his ties to Scientology), but would never put him down--except in the spirit of fun--which is what SOUTH PARK is all about, IMO.
SOUTH PARK is not for the sensitive soul or those who lack a sense of humor, but it's perfect for the rest of us. As I said, I laughed all the way through each episode, and since "laughter is the best medicine," I recommend it highly.
I agree with the reviewer who said, "It's about as good as animated comedy can get."
