South Park Season 12 is brilliantly topical and highly entertaining. Even though they are even more adult in their themes, this "cartoon" can be enjoyed by most age groups. (Kids under 18 MUST have their parents watch it with them.)

From Cartman contracting AIDS in the first episode (and beating it) through to Butters being convinced that he's a vampire in the 14th episode, Trey Parker and Matt Stone have created another season of thought-provoking, and discussion-triggering shows with no end in site. (After all, our crazy world provides endless new material for them to draw upon. LOL) They take real life ridiculousness and play it from the point of view of 9-year-olds and their insane families (in some cases, anyway). Nothing is crazier than the world through the eyes of any "worldly wise" wise cracking kids.

So, if you like to laugh out loud, you can't miss out on South Park Season 12 (or any of the other sets, for that matter). They are definitely worth the money, and can be enjoyed many times over.

If you aren't a fan of the series yet, start with Season 1 and work your way up from there. ;-)

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.

South Park Season 12 On DVD Dec 17 2008
By Reconnecting To My Childhood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I was in fourth grade when south park came out back in 1997, now here we are heading into 2009 and the creator's of the show Matt Stone and Trey Parker are still coming up with stories based in immature humor but paired with intelligent and witty story premises very relevant to today's pop culture. The twelfth season contains the following fourteen classic episodes as well as some special features that previous sets have been lacking.

Britney's New Look - Rather than mock the mess Britney Spears was, this episode mocks those of us who put her there and those trying to take her place.

Tonsil Trouble - Cartman ends up with aids, and he's hiv positive that he wants to find a cure.

Major Boobage- Kenny gets high off cat urine and lives the 'heavy metal' lifestyle.

Canada Goes On Strike- I'm canadian and love that they used us to mock the writer's strike of last year.

Eek, A Penis!- Mrs. Garrison comes full circle. Or is that Mr. Garrison?

Over Logging- Instead of commenting on natural resource over use like oil or forestry Matt and Trey decide to comment on our over dependency on the internet.

Super Fun Time- A pioneer village field trip turns into the plotline of several hit eighties movies when terrorists take over the fun park and Cartman and Butters skip out.

The China Probrem- Beijing Olympic's get Cartman paranoid of the Chinese while Kyle and Stan deal with the disappointment of Steven Speilberg and George Lucas 'raping' Indiana Jones for profits.

The Breast Cancer Show Ever- Cartman becomes a cancer to Wendy, the only way to stop cancer is to fight it.

Pandemic- The boys get Craig involved in a scheme that goes wrong, meanwhile Randy goes 'cloverfield' with his new video camera when furry monsters begin attacking.

Pandemic 2- The Startling- I'm so startled, and so is Randy as Craig and the boys finish saving the world again with more unrealistic twists than the latest Hollywood blockbuster's.

About Last Night- Instead of mocking the presidential candidates like everyone else we see a twist on their stereotypes when election night turns into a heist movie for the O'Bama and McCain tickets. Meanwhile the boys parents get out of control celebrating the 'change'.

Elementary School Musical- I hate High School Musical, and luckily for me so do Matt, Trey and the boys. Rather than dance and sing a boy wants to play basketball but his dramatic father won't allow it.

The Ungroundable- Butters unwillingly joins the 'Twilight' crowd while the Gothic kids try to stop the 'vamp' craze at it's source, the local Hot Topic store.

This season is the first to be released on Blu-ray as well as DVD, though it appears as standard full screen on the DVD, the Blu-Ray is widescreen 1080i with DTS 5.1 Audio. The new special features provided are probably better suited for die hard fans or those interested in animation but personally if it's between having these and none at all I'd rather the option of watching these. The special features are:

Making Boobage: Behind The Scenes Of "Major Boobage"
-Four scenes from the Heavy Metal parody are broken down and shown to us in several stages as producer Eric Stough gives a commentary on how they blended it all together for a final result.

Six Days to South Park, A Day By Day: Making of South Park
-This is less featurette and more commentary. It finds the production crew giving a rather long commentary over several stages of incomplete animation discussing the changes that are made on each of the six days leading up to the air date. We get to see 'Super Fun Time' slowly transform from the storyboard animatic stage to the near final cut.

Behind The Scenes: "About Last Night"
-This is essentially another commentary by the creative crew lead by Eric Stough. They talk over a rough cut of the episode and discuss how most of it was made last minute on the sixth day of production which was the last day before it aired.

Matt and Trey will also provide the same mini commentaries they have provided on every season set since the complete third season. I always find these enjoyable and entertaining. They also manage to give alot of information considering each commentary tends to be under five minutes long. The way they discuss issues really gives you an inside look to how their creative minds work and why the humor of the show is what it is.

I'm happy to see the show hold onto the quality it built up to in previous seasons and perfected in season eleven, despite some slower episodes this season is just as smart overall and certainly as funny. This show has held up where other animated series have fallen apart or gone astray. I often worry that this show may follow the same path but after listening to Matt and Trey's awareness of themselves I don't believe they would let that happen, at least not to the same extent.

One of my favorite moments of the season was the boys watching high school musical to see what the hype was about and Cartman's reaction:
"Well, I'm out guys. If this is what's cool now, I think I'm done. I no longer have any connection to this world. I'm gonna go home and kill myself. Goodbye, friends."

"Eek!!!" Jan. 18 2009
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I've said it before and I'll say it again: after twelve seasons, you'd figure that an animated comedy would have gone stale (I'm looking at you Simpsons, no I'm not afraid to say it). With South Park though, you'd be wrong. The twelfth season of Comedy Central's bread & butter series finds Stan, Kyle, Cartman, Kenny, and the rest of the town's citizens in more insane situations. "Britney's New Look" finds creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker putting their own spin on the train wreck that is Britney Spears, and also has no shame in pointing the finger at who helped make her who she is today, all the while having some insane fun doing it as the boys attempt to help her out. "Tonsil Trouble" gives Cartman a taste of his own medicine, "Major Boobage" finds Kenny with a strange drug problem while paying tribute to the animated classic Heavy Metal (right down to the animation style), and "Eek, a Penis!" finds Mrs. Garrison wishing to be a man again (and features one of the most hilarious moments you will ever see with a singing mouse and his, ahem, attachment). Other episodes go so far to feature some undercurrent themes, whether it be the writer's strike ("Canada Goes on Strike"), our dependency on the internet ("Over Logging"), the Olympics and the butchering of Indiana Jones ("The China Problem"), and even the election ("About Last Night"); while some episodes poke fun at hit flicks like Cloverfield ("Pandemic 1 & 2"), High School Musical ("Elementary School Musical"), and Twilight ("The Ungroundable"). The only weak point of the season for me personally was "Super Fun Time", but other than that, the twelfth season of South Park is flawless and hilarious. All in all, South Park hasn't stopped being funny and even socially relevant, and here's hoping that it never does either.

Mix bag that starts slow but pulls up at the end May 10 2009
By Gabe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It's easy to write satire. It's difficult to write funny satire. Disc 1 with 5 episodes was not particularly funny. There was satire (Canada on strike spoofing the Writer's strike), social commentary (the role of the paparazzi in chasing stories of train wreck celebs, like Britney), but nothing that was laugh inducing. Perhaps the issues were just sad and sometimes stupidity just makes one angry.

It's not til disk two that I begin to find myself smiling and occasionally chuckling over scenes/dialogs in "Super Phun Thyme" and "The Breast Cancer Show Ever".

Then disc 3 with Pandemic I & II about Peruvian pan flute bands and their links to giant destructive Guinea Pigs, the aftermath of the Presidential election amd why Obama and McCain really wants to get into the White House manages to come together for some laugh out loud comedy. The last two episodes skewers the fads of "High School Musical 3", and "Twilight" while at the same time making some pointed observation about society, fitting in, finding an identity, and holding on to one's identity.

Cartman and Butters are an incredibly powerful comedy team with the eternally cynical, selfish, and self-centred Cartman matched with the insecure, anxious-to-please, perpetually innocent and naive Butters, and the "Super Phun Thyme" episode was particularly funny because of these two characters and the way Butters stood by his principles.

Of course anytime Cartman gets his just desserts is an episode worth watching ("The Breast Cancer Shpw Ever").

Pandemic I/II was funny for it's self-commentary as provided by Craig.

Season 10 is still my all-time favourite, but season 12 is an improvement over season 11 which may have suffered for following an excellent season in 10.

Going through the motions April 27 2010
By Ryan Nay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Season 12 of South Park in many places seems like old hat and a bit formulaic, but that's not necessarily a bad thing for this show as it remains one of the best things on TV ever made. The stronger episodes include the very fun "Major Boobage"; the multi-layered, highly relevant, and even at times surprising "Over-Logging"; and "Breast Cancer Show Ever" which features an epic fight between Eric Cartman and Wendy Testaberger- worth the price of admission alone. The season's weaker episodes include "Eek, a Penis," which tries to derive humor from shock value as the show often does but simply isn't that shocking; "Britney's New Look" and "The China Problem," which both have the problem of treading on a joke until it's just not funny anymore; and "About Last Night," which was simply formulaic and boring (relatively speaking for South Park; this same episode would have been a breakthrough of creative genius for The Simpsons or Family Guy). The two parter "Pan-demic" is an amusing send up of stupid "found-footage" horror films like Blair Witch and especially Cloverfield, but the story reaches quite a bit and probably could have been done in a single episode.

Hate to say it but...Not The Best April 11 2009
By seamonkey10 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed season 11, and was anticipating the laughs to come on season 12. I watched the first few episodes...and nothing. A few chuckles and that was it.

The problem is that the satire isn't what it used to be. South Park really likes to bring up unpleasant thoughts or double standards of our society and make fun of that, while the characters have their different opinions on the matter.

This season is mainly plot-driven, and seems to leave out the jokes. A lot of episodes are allusions to movies, an it seems a lot of effort went into getting to the conclusion of the plot. Along the way, the same jokes get repeated, and this technique wears on the viewer like...dare I say...Saturday Night Live. Examples would include: "Dude you don't shoot a guy in the _____", Randy and his video camaera, the 1864 characters who won't break character. Wow, it wasn't funny the first time, and now we have to watch 22 minutes of it. What happened to Stan and the gang making sarcastic remarks about the predictable, cheesy plots and stereotypical characters? Instead, they've become the cheesy movies that they were trying to make fun of.

Maybe Matt and Trey are getting worn out. Even the characters seem lethargic, like in Pandemic. Not animated (no pun intended) but worn out and tired. Sitting on a plane with no laughs.

Another thing I've noticed is that the satire has been pushed to the vulgar. Cussing with no connection to humor and a macabre move toward death and killing. The Brittney Spears episode was disturbing...and not funny (until they were buying corn in the store and started singing!)

The only two bright spots on the disc are "Elementary School Musical" and "Ungroundable". Major Boobage was good, but could have been pushed further, and the Cartman sub-plot was stupid.
