Sadly Misunderstood
South Park is one of the most misunderstood, and also the most intelligent shows on television.

South Park is a satirical look on most anything from Western society - politics, the media, today's youth, celebrities, violence in our society, and much much more. However, instead of presenting these issues as they are, they alternately project them through the exploits of four young boys in South Park, Colorado.

Unfortunately, many people take the show solely at face value, refusing to see the intelligence in it - South Park is admittedly filled with racist and sexist jokes, along with other offensive material. The problem lies within the fact that most people don't seem to understand the concept of satire and self parody.

I admit that I, myself, was one of these people - for years I refused to watch that "garbage," until finally a friend forced me to actually watch a whole episode, and I realized that the show was actually making a point.

So, if you haven't done so, go - watch an episode. You'll feel smarter when you're done.

Trivia

The scripts for the episodes contain what Kenny is actually saying in every instance. It is difficult, but many times it is possible to decipher what he is saying.


Quotes

Stan: We're not getting on, you fat ugly bitch.
Mrs. Crabtree: What did you say?
Stan: I said, "We're not getting on, you fat ugly bitch."
Mrs. Crabtree: Oh.
Kyle: Whoa, dude.
Stan: I always wondered if that would work.


Goofs

In early seasons, whenever the children enter the cafeteria and Chef greets them with the "Hello there children!" line, notice his name on his apron is spelled in lowercase 'chef', but the next scene when he is speaking with the children, and the focus is on him behind the servery, notice his name is spelled in uppercase 'CHEF'.


Crazy Credits

In the episodes 'Do the Handicapped Go to Hell?' and 'Probably', the credits say both Gary Nicholson and Jack Oldman did the voice for Satan's new boyfriend Chris. But it was neither Nicholson nor Oldman who did the voice. It was Dian Bachar, who was in Baseketball, Orgazmo and Cannibal with Trey Parker and Matt Stone.


Alternate Versions

The episode "spookyfish" was shown in "spooky-vision" when it first aired ("spooky-vision" is where a picture of Barbra Streisand appears in every scene) while other airings of this episode removed "spooky-vision", except the new MTV Europe showings have the spooky-vision
