March 8, 2019
Shocking, offensive, and hilarious, South Park continues to undermine authority with its creative and insightful critiques of the media, politics, and celebrity hype.

South Park strikes a great balance between the family orientated Simpsons, and the adult humor of Family Guy, whilst proving far more funny and far less irritating than the loud-mouthed latter.

Even if we were always the butt of every South Park gag, we were also always in on the joke.

This is proto-South Park. It's rough and dirty, fast and offensive - like a drive-by. Only funnier.

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.

So far, 'South Park' succeeds best in small touches.

Beneath the rough edges... are some knowingly clever observations about childhood and popular culture.

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.

The genius of Parker and Stone is the incongruity between the innocent look of the characters and the outlandish invective that spews from their yaps and gives South Park its deliciously wigged-out sensibility.
