SOUTH PARK: VOLUME 4
Reviewed January 3rd, 2000 by Staff
The second wave of South Park episode compilation DVDs is finally out. The current wave of three DVDs covers episodes from the second season. While the show arguably lost some steam in its second season, there were still some great episodes. What is confusing, but great for the consumer, is that DVD Volume 4 contains the best episodes from season 2:
Cartman’s Mom is a Dirty Slut: Cartman begins a quest for the identity of his father, and the episode ends in a cliffhanger. Mrs. Cartman’s antics are well documented.
Cartman’s Mom is Still a Dirty Slut: The resolution to the cliffhanger.
Chicken Lover: an episode, which shows just how far a man will go to teach others to read. People learn to respect Cartman’s “authoritah.”
Ike’s Wee Wee: an exploration of the Hebrew circumcision ritual. Also, Mr. Mackey does all that’s bad, mmkay?
Not Without My Anus: a whole Terrance and Philip episode!!!
Despite being omitted from the packaging, Not Without My Anus is included on Volume 4, bringing the episode count to 5, where all other discs contain just 4 episodes. As a gag, the South Park creators aired the Terrance and Philip episode on April Fools day, when audiences expected to see the cliffhanger resolution. In their introduction, Matt Stone and Trey Parker cite the Terrance and Phillip episode as their actual favorite (and not in the mocking way in which they call every episode their favorite).
The audio and video on the disc is great. The sound problems from Volumes 1 and 2 are not present. The sound is 2.0 digital stereo, and the image is 1.33:1, full frame. Detail and color are good.
The humorous episode introductions find Matt Stone and Trey Parker “entertaining” seniors at an Old Folks Home. The viewer can select episodes from the main menu, but the episodes contain no chapter stops. An advertisement for Comedy Central is also included on the disc.
