Oh Long Johnson Sep 24, 2013
By C. Sawin
"South Park" has been one of the few animated television series that seems to have only gotten better with age. Every season, the show seems to improve a bit more. The animation of the show, despite being glorified versions of their construction paper cut outs from 15 years ago, has evolved drastically over the years and now features the likes of cel shading, computer animation, and even live-action segments. The writing of the show only gets more imaginative with each season as the show continues to put a viciously comical spin on current events, celebrities, and movies. It's taken 16 seasons to finally check out the show on Blu-ray. Even if you're a massive fan of the show, the mindset is that maybe the show doesn't really require fans to watch the show in high definition. But the show looks and sounds damn good in the format.
"The Complete Sixteen Season" features all 14 episodes from season 16 in a sleek two-disc Blu-ray package (or three-discs for the DVD). While the Dolby True HD: English 5.1 surround sound is incredible, it probably won't be your preferred choice if you don't have an excellent sound system in your home. Viewing the series with this option on an HDTV with its normal speakers, the music and sound effects of the show are massively loud while the dialogue is a bit on the low side. Be sure to use the 2.0 Channel sound option to help resolve this issue.
Favorite episodes include "Butterballs," "Sarcastaball," "A Nightmare on Facetime," "A Scause for Applause," and "Obama Wins." "A Nightmare on Facetime" is the first Halloween themed "South Park" episode in six years, "A Scause for Applause" adds the "South Park" spin on Dr. Seuss and WWJD bracelets, and "Butterballs" is an exceptional Butters episode that revolves around bullying, Hollywood, and a certain act in San Diego.
"Obama Wins" may be the season's crown jewel as it seems to cover so much and yet feels so effortless in execution. The endless supply of General Tso jokes helps, but most of the episode is carried by the election, "Star Wars," and Morgan Freeman.
Nearly every episode has its strengths or, like other "South Park" episodes you may not care for the first time around, become more enjoyable with repeat viewings. "Reverse Cowgirl" features one of the best one-liners of the season ("Dude, you can't force me to wear a seatbelt while I take a dump!") while "Cash For Gold," "Faith Hilling," "Cartman Finds Love," "Raising the Bar," and "Insecurity" are all solid episodes. The least enjoyable episodes are "Going Native" and "I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining." The show has dabbled with live-action before, but the "Ziplining" episode may be the first time the boys have been portrayed as real people. So the episode is at least noteworthy for that reason.
In addition to the Mini-Commentaries on every episode by "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the only other special feature are a little over four minutes of deleted scenes; the best one being one from "Reverse Cowgirl" where Jimmy tries to cheer up Craig with some stand-up comedy.

"I'm not joking. Do it." Jan 13, 2014
By Culture Vulture
Still going strong. Lots of great stuff this season. Favorites were Cash For Gold, Faith Hilling (Oh Long Johnson!), I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining (live action South Park on a boat), Going Native (funny premise mostly, especially if you have some of those annoying people in your life who are always going to Hawaii like it's some kind of birthright), and A Nightmare On Facetime (a great The Shining-inspired Halloween episode with iPads). No epic multi-part episodes or anything pushing the boundaries too much, but the best episodes are just as good as ever. And the Presidential election episode summed up what I was thinking at the time perfectly, much more concerned and excited about the announcement of Disney buying Star Wars than choosing between two sides of the same coin. Kind of another one of those touchstone episodes of my generation from proclaiming The Cure's Disintegration to be the best album ever to Cartman no longer relating to the world around him after High School Musical's popularity. Same old super-short commentaries which have always been both annoying and a funny final joke on the viewer. Keep it going.

OMG, they killed-- oh, wait, never mind Nov 09, 2012
I have watched South Park since its inception. The first two seasons were a hoot-- really, some very funny, original, and creative stuff, which was made all the better by the fact that the drawing was deliberately and self-consciously not at all slick. In later seasons-- and importantly, recent seasons, South Park has become uneven in the quality of the episodes, in terms of humor and creativity. At times, the humor and creativity and originality has been compromised for the sake of preachiness. At other times, the episodes are classics. But even at its worst, an episode of South Park will still contain a gem or two that can't be found anywhere else-- for example, in the most recent episode, where Butters sinks a cruise ship with a golf ball. That's why I continue to watch faithfully.

South Park Season 16 Oct 22, 2013
OVERVIEW: The premise of "South Park" was conceived by creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker in the early 1990s. Due to its viral-video success, Comedy Central picked up the rights to the franchise and aired the first episode of the adult animated series in 1997. The cartoon garnered fame as one of the first shows to hinge its comedy on the use of crude language, satirical storylines, and dark humor. Set in South Park, Colorado, the main characters of the show--Stan Marsh, Eric Cartman, Kyle Broflovski, and Kenny McCormick--often parody the childhoods of their writers.
SPECIAL FEATURES of the Season 16 box-set include deleted scenes and "Commentary-Mini." If you have never watched the episodes with "Commentary Mini," I encourage you to do so; the short commentaries from Trey Parker and Matt Stone are optionally run during the first three minutes of each episode. Parker and Stone have used this method of commentary since the early seasons. Their short introductions often expose insights behind particular jokes, further multiplying the laugh count.
SEASON 16 kicked off in the spring of 2012 with fourteen episodes, each written during the week before broadcast. In true "South Park" style, some of the pop-culture references of this season include: bullying, zip-lining, "scause" armbands, voting, the Lance Armstrong scandal, NFL nanny regulations, BlockBuster/Netflicks, airport security/TSA, Honey BooBoo, Amazon addiction, native Hawaiians, memes, Easter/Passover, obesity, and TV shopping networks. I have been a fan of "South Park" since its beginning and religiously purchase each season; however, I feel that the show's wit and charm has been in a slump since season 14. While I still find the show highly entertaining, much of the recent comedy has felt `forced.' I am happy to say that the writing seems to pick back up in Season 16 and is nearly fully-operational by Season 17.
Episode 1: "Reverse Cowgirl"--New laws governing potty time emerge as backlash to Clyde's inconsiderate bathroom behavior. The tyranny upsets loggers, thinkers, and top-of-the-tank readers alike. Can toilet pioneer John Harrington set everyone straight?
Episode 2: "Cash for Gold"--When Stan's elderly Grandpa gets swindled by a shop-from-home network, Stan sets out to make things right. Cartman, on the other hand, capitalizes on the `cash for junk' market.
Episode 3: "Faith Hilling"--The boys struggle to stay ahead of the competition for the newest internet memes. The war turns to survival of the fittest; who (or what) will be `T.he Swift.est' to adapt?
Episode 4: "Jewpacabra"--Cartman warns his friends to avoid the South Park Easter Egg Hunt due to video footage he captured on a strange monster. To stick by his charade, Cartman becomes obligated to face the beast alone; his only hope lies in prayer for a Passover Miracle.
Episode 5: "Butterballs"--Butters becomes the victim of a ruthless bully. Stan quickly volunteers to be the creator and star of a new anti-bullying video, and he won't let anyone stand in his way.
Episode 6: "I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining"--To make the most of their spring break, one of the boys suggests going ziplining. The adventure is long, uneventful, and irritating.... But when an attempt to escape goes wrong, stuff gets REAL. Will all four boys make it out alive? And, more importantly, WHO had the bright idea to go ziplining in the first place?
Episode 7: "Cartman Finds Love"--The new girl in town turns Cartman into a giddy, love-struck matchmaker.
Episode 8: "Sarcastaball"--After the NFL implements safety-related rule changes, Randy offers his opinions through sarcasm. When Randy takes a mouthful of Butters' secret weapon, he finally learns to calls things as they are.
Episode 9: "Raising The Bar"--Along with the rest of the country, Cartman begins to own his unhealthy and trashy lifestyle; the fate of all integrity is left in the hands/mechanical arms of James Cameron.
Episode 10: "Insecurity"--When online shopping invites delivery men into the home, Kyle begins to worry that the `regular deliveries' are actually services to his mother's infidelity.
Episode 11: "Going Native"--Butters hits a stage in adolescence marked by unruly behavior; it is a sign that reveals the truth of his origins.
Episode 12: "A Nightmare On FaceTime"--The Marsh Family takes over the South Park BlockBuster, forcing Stan to miss out on trick-or-treating with his friends. As Randy tries to resurrect a dying business, Stan finds a way to join his friends, in costume, through FaceTime.
Episode 13: "A Scause for Applause"--When a famous idol is accused of using performance-enhancing drugs, the world loses faith as well as their supportive wristbands.
Episode 14: "Obama Wins!"--Cartman sets up an elaborate extortion scheme that holds the result of the 2012 Presidential Election hostage.
