Blu-ray Review: SOUTH PARK: The Complete Twenty-Second 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.

Join Cartman, Kenny, Stan, and Kyle as they have a memorable Halloween, get super cereal with Al Gore, and try to win the top prize in the town’s bike parade in the enduringly popular series’ incredible 22nd season.

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-Second Season continues to cover the current social events of the time and keep everything as politically incorrect and offensive as possible. This season pokes fun at out of control emotions and anxiety issues that we’re seeing way too much of as well as school shootings. Mr. Hankey gets kicked out of South Park because of his tweets and Randy starts his own weed farm. PC Principal and Strong Woman have a litter of PC babies as they continue to try and hide their relationship. The Halloween episode deals with an e-scooter haunting and then we get to see the return of Al Gore and Satan who team up with the kids to battle it out with the real ManBearPig. This season makes fun of Amazon when it takes over South Park and puts the small shops out of business and lastly there’s a bike parade that the kids all want to enter but there’s a catch to it. The creators don’t hold anything back and poke fun at anything and anyone in the headlines and that’s what I still like about this animated series. 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 PC climate where so many unhinged snowflakes think they have to be offended by everything. SOUTH PARK: The Complete Twenty-Second Season will be available on Blu-ray on May 28th.
