I'm super! Thanks for asking!Jul 04, 2000
By Shelley Gammon
"South Park" is not for the faint of heart or for kids... but great hilarious entertainment for adults. There is at least one overly offensive scene in each episode, but it is always redeemed by side-splitting laughter in another scene.
My only complaint (althought it is a BIG complaint) is that the introductions to each episode by Matt and Trey can not be easily skipped. Having to hold down the fast-forward button on the remote for 5 minutes to get past these little skits is a royal pain and the antithesis of why people get DVD versions in the first place. You should be able to skip to the next selection right to the episode instead of suffering through these skits more than once.

Best Volume So Far...Aug 19, 1999
Five words: Cartman Gets an Anal Probe. 'Nuff said.
But....I have to comment on the sound. I too was disturbed when I first heard this DVD. But then after watching it (and volumes 2 and 3) several times, I happened to catch a few reruns on TV(DSS). Lo and behold, I noticed the clicks and pops are in the regular TV episodes IN THE EXACT SAME PLACES!! The high quality of the DVD's just makes them much more obvious. So, based entirely on content, I give this DVD 5 stars!

Could've been better, EASILYJan 25, 2001
By Fat Elvis
For the price of this disc- especially at some places- four episodes of South Park ain't bad. These are four pretty funny episodes. Now I could've given this 5 stars, but why didn't I? First of all, the video kinda sucks. I don't know what these other people are talking about but the audio sounded fine; typical South Park fare. But the video just seemed grainy to me. For graphics so simple, was it really that hard to get a good video quality out of this? But the video quality doesn't really bother me after staring at the screen for a minute or two. What REALLY bothers me is the fact that you're forced to sit through what seems like endless blathering of Matt and Trey (the creators) before each episode. It's a little interesting the first time, but it quickly becomes extremely stupid and pointless, and having to sit through it EVERY time you want to view an episode without being able to skip it is just inexcusable. And what does this disc have in the way of extras? A string of Comedy Central show ads. Like I really want to sit through 15 minutes of Make Me Laugh and Win Ben Stein's Money ads. Just skip it, especially considering half those shows have been dead for a while.
These are four good episodes and I definately recommend this DVD (and the five others) to anyone who has a DVD player and is a South Park fan, but the quality of this disc easily could have been much higher, thus it does not deserve a high rating.

What more could you ask for?Feb 06, 2000
By David Kerr
How about chapter stops and fixing the sound problems? :) Apart from that, the South Park DVDs are great to have. Trey and Matt could have just let the shows be put on a disc and sent out the door, but they went one step further and made introductions to each episode. In my opinion, some of these are funnier than South Park! I especially like the Fireside Chat intros - good use of the camera in those.

BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEF CAAAAKE!Feb 21, 2001
By Olaf the Bear
Okay, well- I'm adding this part to all my South Park Reviews: For this price for four episodes, this is a great deal. I remember buying the VHS versions first (which are split up differently), and feeling I got ripped off on those once I saw how great these DVDs were. I'll review each individual episode the best I can remember now...
Cartman Gets an Anal Probe: This apparently took Matt and Trey a couple of months to do because they were still using construction paper cutouts. You could totally tell the animation style shift a little between this pilot episode and the rest of them. But as for the story, it's a classic. Anything story that revolves around Cartman I find pretty funny, and this is no exception.
Volcano: Not my favorite episode, but still- it's funny to see Matt and Trey try to make fun of some social concern like hunting for sport. Anyway, cameo by Patrick Duffy. heh heh.
Weight Gain 4000: One of the most hilarious episodes of all time. Cartman trys to get all big and buff with this stuff called Weight Gain 4000. It's funny to see Cartman interact with other people and with the TV.
Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride: This episode had some incredibly funny moments in it and also introduced a character that many people seem to love- Big Gay Al. He shows up in the Movie too, so if you haven't seen this episode, you really should to get some background info on him.
