There are few seasons of South Park that is as funny, as gross, and politically incorrect as season 6, and that's what I love the most about it. It stars out normal enough with the humorous, yet unimaginative, episode "Jared had Aids" where it is reveled that the Subway spokesman Jared has managed to lose all that weight because of his aids... then followed up with another funny episode called "Aspen," but that episode also fails to deliver the political and social hummer we all love so much. No, when this season really gets going is in episode 4, "Fun with Veal" where Stan and Kyle find out that Veal is just "tortured baby cows" and make it their mission to save them by kidnapping, uh, cow napping, them and locking themselves in Kyle's room. From that moment on season 6 is full of laugh out loud episodes and social/political commentary that thrashes the Catholic Church (Red Hot Catholic Love), Rushal Crow (The New Terrance and Philip Trailer), Steven Spielberg (Free Hat), George Bush (A Ladder to Heaven), and much more.
Some of the best episodes in all of South Park are found in this box set. Red Hot Catholic Love where it is reveled that Catholics really just worship a giant spider in the Vatican. Child Abduction Isn't Funny, where South Park gets an Asian man to build a giant "great wall" around the city to keep out potential child abductors, only problem is that Mongolians keep knocking it down. Then there are my two favorite episodes, The Return of the Lord of the Rings to the Two Towers, and The Biggest D**che in the Universe. The Return of the Lord of the Rings to the Two Towers (or tRotLotRttTT, hmmm) is a giant spoof of my favorite movies of all time, The Lord of the Rings - The Motion Picture Trilogy (Platinum Series Special Extended Edition), in which Stan's dad accidentally puts an adult video into the Lord of the Rings case, and sends it over to Butters house. After watching the tape, Butters terns into Gollum after Stan, Kyle, and Cartman come to take the video back to the movie store, calling it his precise. Meanwhile the 6th graders find out about the tape and scope the town for it.
After Cartman drinks Kenny's soul in The Biggest D**che in the Universe, Chef takes the gang to New York to see the "great" John Edwards who can supposedly speak to the dead. It is here that we have South Parks greatest quote, Edwards, "Everything I tell people is positive and gives them hope, how does that make me a D**che?" Stan, "Because the big questions in life are tough, why are we here? where are we from, where are we going? But if people believe in a55whole d**chey liars like you we're never going to find the real answers to those questions. Your aren't just lying, your slowing down the progress of all man kind you d**che."
Oh yeah baby, the greatest South Park quote ever. And I haven't even mentioned brilliant episodes like The Death Camp of Intolerance, Freak Strike, or Red Sleigh Down. Let's just say that they are all great. You are not a South Park fan unless you've seen these classic episodes.
