Comedy, Lenny Bruce once said, is tragedy plus time. Less than two months--hardly any time at all--had elapsed after September 11 when South Park broadcast an episode that addressed the tragedy. Wit and satire have their place, of course, but in the aftermath of epochal upheaval, sometimes good old-fashioned ridicule can diminish an enemy and help to heal a grieving nation. The Emmy-nominated episode "Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants" does the cathartic trick, as Cartman plays Bugs Bunny to Osama's Elmer Fudd with a series of humiliating pranks, one of which reveals Osama's miniscule Bin Laden. "This is how we deal with stuff," creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone remark during the "commentary-mini," a listening option on each episode. In this fifth season, "It Hits the Fan," to quote the title of the notorious season-opening episode, in which the "S" word is uttered a staggering 162 times. In another series milestone, "Kenny Dies," and actually stays dead (at least until season 6). One of South Park's best characters gets his own half hour in "Butters' Very Own Episode," while one of the series' absolute worst, "Towelie," also gets his. Over the course of these 14 episodes, many life lessons are learned about sex education ("Proper Condom Use"), prejudice ("Here Comes the Neighborhood") and stereotypes ("The Entity"). But perhaps the most valuable lesson is: "Don't tick off Cartman," as witness his diabolical revenge against the unfortunate ninth grader who rips him off in "Scott Tenorman Must Die."

The genius of South Park is its uncanny ability to make satiric hay with such otherwise sure-fire comedy killers as aborted fetuses, concentration camps, and cancer (which becomes instantly funny when the words "up the a**" are added to it, and funnier still when spoken by actual members of Radiohead). 2001 was a rough year for America, and while this country's "problems" provide Stone and Parker with a fount of material (most of it objectionable), we can take odd comfort that they remain vigilant in rooting for their "team." --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my god they killed Kenny!!! Nov. 30 2005
By Tommy Skylar TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Lot of action as south park enter its 5th season as Kenny dies(and stay dead until a while),the boys meet ossama bin ladden ,Jimmy made his first appearance and much more.South park changed and is changing at that point.I see season 5 as a hilarious season in wich poked fun at everithing its a great season.

The plots are crazy enough:a geneticaly modified towel that gets high,162 use of the Sh**word,cartman get his own theme park and more.There is not a single episode that doesnt keep attention and Butters get his own episode.From begenning to end this season of s-p is hilarious it really goes to the extreme like the ossama bin ladden episode.

Here`s the episode list;

502-It hits the fan

503-Cripple fight

504-Super best friends

501-Scott Tenorman must die

505-Terrance and Philip:behind the blow

506-Cartmanland

507-Proper condom use

508-Towelie

509-Ossama Bin Ladden has farty pants

510-How to eat with your butt

511-The entity

512-Here comes the neighborhood

513-Kenny dies

514-Butters`very own episode

Don`t let the number of episode fool ya this season has only 14 episodes but they are really great!South is different many say its darker ans episodes like `scott tenorman must die` and `kenny dies`proves that.Many important things happens during this season as Jimmy is introduced,we see Kyle`s cousin and more.South park has grown and devlopped so much over the years but that year in particular and opened up for Kenny`s death,more butters and changes but south park remained a great show all along.

In this season Kenny dies and doesnt come back for a period of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best adult cartoon out there! March 10 2012
By Bruiser
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the best adult cartoon that has ever been invented. I remember when I was a child I had to sneak behind my father's back if I wanted to watch this show. This show pushes the envelope like no other show has ever done before. The best part is that southpark is still strong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another stellar season June 15 2011
By K. Roy
Format:DVD
Simply put...some of the best episodes this show has put forth.

Although a bit shorter than other seasons (running only 14 episodes), each episode contained in this collection were hilarious. Keep in mind I'm watching these for the 1st time in 2011 (10 years after the boxset was released to the public)

I'm a new South Park fan and even tough it had a slow start in seasons 1 & 2, season 3-5 so far have been amazing and its easy to see how this show got so popular.

Once again no real special features to mention aside from some incredibly brief commentary. Once again no captions on the disc so if your TV can't automatically detect them you're S.O.L.

same great packaging as the previous seasons...looking forward to season 6!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bonne Saison April 14 2011
By Mx134
Format:DVD
Je n'est pas encore toute vue toutes les saisons, mais je vais me rappeler de la cinquième. Plusieurs épisodes clés de la série se retrouvent sur cette saison. Dont les épsodes, Scott Tenorman Must Die, Cartmanland, Proper Condom Use et Butters' Very Own Episode. Je suis un peu triste pour la mort de Kenny, mais j'espère et je crois bien que Butters est capable de prendre la relève pour une saison. Je lui donne un 8/10. Pour le moment, la saison 1 reste ma favorite. Cependant, il me manque encore la saison 6,7,8 et 9 qui s'annonce très prometteuse!
