Blu-ray Review: SOUTH PARK: The Complete Twenty-First Season

SOUTH PARK was created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone and made its debut on Comedy Central in 1997. The animated series is geared towards an adult audience and pokes fun at many social topics where no one or no thing is safe from this politically incorrect juggernaut. Needless to say, it contains adult humor and crude language. The series follows the misadventures of Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman and Kenny McCormick who get into all kinds of mischief and trouble. Over the years South Park has also introduced many recurring fan favorite characters like Towelie, Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo, and others.

Come on down to South Park with all-new, uncensored episodes from the show’s incredible 21st season! Join Cartman, Kenny, Stan, and Kyle as they take on the opioid epidemic, experiment with water bears, dig into the underbelly of social media, and go to war with Canada.

The packaging comes with a slipcase. The outside front of the case features the artwork you see at the top of the page. The back includes season details, more artwork and list of special features. Inside the case is a thick fold out that features some alternate artwork. There’s also a list of the episodes, synopsis and airdates included on each disc. The two Blu-ray discs also feature their own individual artwork. Inserting each disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for this high-definition release were crisp and clear. I didn’t have any issues with the video and audio.

Bottom line is, SOUTH PARK: The Complete Twenty-First Season covers the current social events of the time and continues to keep everything as politically incorrect and offensive as possible. Mr. Garrison is back as the President who is dealing with North Korea, PC Principal has his hands full, Cartman is dealing with his new relationship and he doesn’t do a good job, the town deals with Columbus Day the only way it can, it also deals with its own drug epidemic, Randy is into remodeling homes as well as Native Americans, there’s a witchcraft story arc, and much more. There’s even a brief cameo by the Memberberries that made their debut last season. I think the writing continues to be brave for this long-running animated series because they don’t hold anything back and poke fun at anything and anyone in the headlines. The basic looking animation style still looks the same which is also a part of South Park‘s charm. I do think that this kind of humor is a dying artform because of today’s climate where this certain group of people think they have to be offended by everything but as a proud politically incorrect patriot, I’m going to enjoy the hilarious ride until it ends. I had a blast checking out SOUTH PARK: The Complete Twenty-First Season that will be available on Blu-ray on June 5th.
