The Complete Twentieth Season
On Blu-ray and DVD June 13, 2017
“2016 was a strange year, and it’s a good thing we had ‘South Park’ to put things into perspective” (IGN). Over the course of two decades, “South Park” has continued to push boundaries and take risks, making it one of the most lauded and successful satirical comedies of all time.
Now, the boys are back in the Complete Twentieth Season on Blu-ray & DVD. Own all 10 episodes of the show’s landmark 20th season as the gang takes on politics, online trolling and, of course, the unforgettable Member Berries. The Blu-ray & DVD set also includes deleted scenes, an extended 2016 Comic-Con panel with creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, season commentary, and much more!
It is CRAZY to think that South Park is going into its 21st season! I’ve been watching it from the very beginning and I can’t believe that there have been 20 seasons. 20 seasons. Give me a minute, because I am feeling mighty old right now.
South Park is one of my “guilty-little-pleasures.” I love the social commentary, I love how they “tackle the big issues,” and I love how funny each episode is. Is it totally wrong and immature? Yup, it sure is, and that is part of the appeal. After 20 years, I still enjoy watching an episode or three on the weekends after the boys are in bed, and I still laugh. Of course I have my favourite episodes, but I enjoy South Park just as much today in 2017 as I did in 1997 when it was new (and fresh).
I readily admit to seeing the South Park Movie in theatre back in 1999 (and buying the DVD the day it was released), and I even have a CD (which I do still listen to on occasion). For me, South Park is just a lot of fun. A show I can watch, tune out, and forget about my everyday stresses, at least for 22 minutes.
What I liked most about Season 20, is the fact that the entire 10 episodes played more like a traditional sit-com with a continuing story arc. My favourite episodes this season are “Member Berries,” “Oh Jeez,” and “Members Only,” which all focus on Mr. Garrison and his Presidential-Run. After 20 years, South Park remains edgy, controversial and there isn’t a subject out there that seems to scare Matt & Trey away. I’m looking forward to seeing what Season 21 will bring.
