You won't hear me say this about many things, but I will openly admit that when it comes to South Park, I am a total obsessive fanboy. I know a lot of people hate it. I know that despite its razor-sharp satire on politics, religion, and social issues it remains, in the eyes of many viewers, a show about badly animated little kids cussing and telling fart jokes. I've had plenty of people look at me like I must have the maturity level of a 12-year-old to still be such a huge fan of the show, but I don't care. South Park is, in my humble opinion, both more intelligent and more entertaining than anything else on television today.
So naturally I was excited for the season 14 DVD release yesterday. I own all the previous seasons, as well as copies of both the original shorts, so it was a simple matter of fact that I would go buy this as well. Unfortunately, no local stores had it in last night. A Wal-Mart employee told me it would be released at midnight, but evidently no copies came in on the trucks that night. Well, I just got back from there and now I have the newest addition to my collection in hand. Speaking of which, there are a couple episodes I wasn't able to catch on southparkstudios.com, so I'm going to go watch those right now.
Oh, and in unrelated news, a girl I know from school here invited me to go see Nunslaughter with her and another friend next month, so I guess now I've got my next show coming up soon.
***EDIT: After watching episode 201, all I can say is fuck Comedy Central. The asinine double-standard for censorship they exhibit on that episode makes their treatment of previous Muhammad issues look reasonable by comparison. The two-part episodes 200 and 201 were some of the best material South Park has ever offered, but the network screwed them over royally.***
