South Park: Season 1 Photos
Tv Season Info
TOO BAD, KIDS! South Park... is for grownups albeit grownups who aren't put off by some blood, some guts and some sure-fire passing-gas jokes along with the show's sardonic observations about kids, parenting, politics and media.
This is proto-South Park. It's rough and dirty, fast and offensive - like a drive-by. Only funnier.
Rendered in the wanting style of a cheesy, early 1960's cartoon, South Park is a witless offering that wants to score as it seeks to be pointedly outrageous and aggressively offensive but clocks in as merely dumb.
Part of what made the show seem so unusual when it was in its first full flush of success was the way that it managed to be everywhere while also seeming so thoroughly disposable.
It might help if the South Park kids had personalities, but they're as one-dimensional as the show's cut-and-paste animation.
Audience Reviews for South Park: Season 1
"Oh my god, they killed Kenny!" Hilariously entertaining, Season 1 of Comedy Central's hit animated series South Park delivers a ton of laughs. The show follows a group of elementary school students named Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny as they get into wacky adventures, including alien abductions, an erupting volcano, a zombie outbreak, wild turkey attacks, and a rampaging genetic clone. The animation is rather crude, but the simpleness has a sort of charm to it and serves as a clever juxtaposition to the adult humor. And the comedy is really well-written, with plenty of no holds barred lampooning of celebrities. Fresh and exciting, South Park delivers an incredible first season.
Season 1 of South Park was ambitious, but the gross-out humour didn't really appeal to many.
South Park's first season may not be among it's strongest, but in terms of setting up a cast of likable characters it succeeds, along with containing some classic episodes from the show.
