5 out of 5 stars A great season.   July 2, 2006
  7 out of 8 found this review helpful

Everybody seems to think that, lately, South Park has gotten too preachy to be funny. I beg to differ. While, yes, the political satire can be irrtating at times, I like the metaphorical approach the show has been taking in some of the latter episodes. And to be honest, this season made me laugh harder than at any time since I started watching this show nine years ago. Of course, I said that about every season prior to this one. I do think that the creative minds behind this show are really good at topping themselves and have done a great job of staying fresh and funny for the last decade. I will definitely buy this box set and the ones that follow. I am also very happy that new episodes will follow for the next two years. My only is that they are just as funny.
Episode reviews;
1. Good times with weapons- I love the anime in this episode. The only time I have EVER enjoyed anime. Period. That and the whole Butters taking a ninja star in the eye thing. Classic.
2. You got F'd in the A- This episode serves to reinforce why I hate boy bands. That, and the pointlessness of the movie 'You got served'.
3. The Passion of the Jew- The single funniest episode of the season. Not my favorite, though. How could you not laugh at the sight of Cartman leading a bunch of unsuspecting idiots in an anti-semitic chant while dressed as Adolf Hitler?
4. Awesom-O- Just when you thought Cartman couldn't get any worse or weirder, this one proves he can. I love this episode, especially the part when Butters finally figures out that the robot is really Cartman.
5. Up the down steroid- I hate to say it, but they voiced my feelings about steroids in sports w/o saying it. I especially enjoyed the scene with Timmy going to Mr. Mackey's office. Classic stuff.
6. Goobacks- My favorite episode of the season. It voices my feelings about both illegal immigration and hippy liberal douchebags without incriminating me.
7. The Jeffersons- Dude, I knew that was Kenny. I frickin' knew it. Classic death scene.
8. Douche and Turd- Reinforcing my belief that the PETA losers need to go. And poking fun at the electoral process. Also proved that the only reason people want you to vote is so you'll support their cause. Which is why I don't vote.
9. Something Wall-Mart this way comes- As a victim of the events depicted here, to a lesser degree, I whole-heartedly endorse the message here. And I also can relate to pointless 2 a.m. shopping sprees in the Wal-Mart DVD section.
10. Pre-School- I just think the whole allusion to the original Star Trek pilot was the best.
11. Quest for ratings- Proof positive that Robi-tripping is useful. Simple, effective, funny.
12. Stupid spoiled whore video playset- I wish would some gay guy would banish Paris Hilton to the depths of their anus. And save room for Nicole Ritchie while they are at it.
13.Cartman's Incredible Gift- It's a shame about Mrs. Crabtree.
14. Woodland Critter Christmas- Satanic animals in a blood orgy equals comic gold.
I loved this season. And I can't wait for the DVD to come out. Or the new season, for that matter. South Park is a great show and I hope it continues until the boys are in high school.

5 out of 5 stars The best season EVER!!!!!!!!!!   June 23, 2006
  47 out of 47 found this review helpful

Season 8 is a must own...almost every episode is a 5 star is what you are gonna get...

1. Good Times with Weapons
South Park takes on the look of Japanese Anime. The boys are transformed into Japanese Warriors after they buy martial arts weapons at a local flea market. Their sworn enemy, Professor Chaos, confronts them and a highly stylized battle ensues.

Cartman hatches his next genius plan for picking on Butters when he becomes "AWESOM-O." Cartman dresses up like a robot, calls himself "AWESOM-O," and moves in with Butters. His plan is to learn all of Butter's innermost secrets and then use them against him. While Butters is thrilled to have found a new best friend, the Army believes "AWESOM-O" is some new secret weapon, and Hollywood is after the phony robot to develop their next big blockbuster.

3. Up the Down Steroid
Timmy is crushed when he discovers that Jimmy has been using steroids to increase his chances of winning. Meanwhile, Cartman feels he can easily take first place competing against Jimmy. He just has to convince the qualifying committee that he's handicapped.

4. The Passion of The Jew
After weeks of pressure from Cartman, Kyle finally sees "The Passion." Cartman's dream comes true when, as a result of seeing "The Passion", Kyle has to admit Cartman has been right all along. Inspired by Kyle's change of heart and a powerful love for Mel Gibson, Cartman incites many of the film's hardcore fans to band together and carryout its message. Meanwhile, Stan and Kenny also see the movie and embark upon a quest to find Mel Gibson.

5. You Got F'd In The A
Stan "gets served" when a group of kids from Orange County challenge him to a dance-off. It's up to Stan to put a team of South Park's best dancers together to compete against a rival troupe from Orange County. While Butters has won awards for his dancing, he refuses to help Stan out, as he hasn't been able to dance since the tragic death of eight audience members at his last competition.

6. Goobacks
Humans from the year 4035 are arriving in droves. South Park gets a little too crowded when people from the future arrive through a recently discovered time portal. When the boys try to earn some extra money, the time immigrants, who are willing to do the same work for next to nothing, take their jobs.

7. The Jeffersons
A wealthy black man and his son stir things up. All the children of South Park are attracted to "Mr. Jefferson", his son and their home filled with games, toys and animals. Cartman goes out of his way to get "Mr. Jefferson" to love him, while the local police force resent him for being black and wealthy and decide to bring him down.

8. Douche and Turd
PETA demonstrates against the use of a cow as South Park Elementary's mascot and the student body is forced to choose a new one. Cartman and Kyle come up with opposing ideas and try to encourage kids to get out and vote. As the election approaches, Kyle tries to convince everyone that his candidate, a giant douche, is better than Cartman's nominee, a turd sandwich. Stan decides not to vote for anyone. Puff Daddy hears about this and tries to change Stan's mind.

9. Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes
The streets of South Park are like a ghost-town when a giant Wall-Mart lures the townspeople to the new store with its incredible bargains. Cartman becomes a boy possessed by the power of Wall-Mart and its low, low prices. In order to save their town, Stan and Kyle have to find a way to destroy the ever-expanding superstore while keeping Cartman from stabbing them in the back.

10. Preschool
The boys fear for their lives when a friend once scorned seeks revenge. For five long years, Stan, Kyle, Kenny, Cartman and Butters have kept a secret about an illegal incident that happened back in pre-school. Now, the kid who took the fall for the group, Trent Boyett, is getting out of "juvie" and his first order of business is justice for his betrayers. When Butters ends up in the hospital after his run-in with Trent, the boys decide to hire some sixth graders to watch their backs.

11. Quest for Ratings
The boys of "South Park" produce their own morning news show on the school's closed-circuit television station and are immediately caught up in the intense competition for ratings with Clyde. Cartman and Jimmy anchor "Super School News" bringing all the latest from South Park Elementary to their audience of four viewers. When the show faces cancellation, the boys refuse to give up. Committed to restructuring the program to attract viewers, Cartman will try anything to hook an audience.

12. Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset
Who is the "Stupidest Spoiled Whore" in South Park? The world's most well-known socialite arrives in South Park and engages in some "friendly" competition. All the fourth grade girls idolize a rich, famous and spoiled socialite, known for her jet-set lifestyle, television show and extra-curricular activities. They even have her brand new toy set that comes complete with video camera, night vision filter, play money and losable cell phone. In an effort to impress their idol, the girls pursue the boys to make their own videos.

13. Cartman's Incredible Gift
Cartman suffers a severe blow to the head after a nearly fatal fall in "Cartman's Incredible Gift." After sustaining a severe head injury, Cartman appears to have the power to see into the future. South Park detectives are quick to enlist his help in cracking unsolved murder cases and Cartman is more than willing to help, for a price. In the meantime, a group of "licensed" psychics cry foul when Cartman refuses to join their ranks.

14. Woodland Critter Christmas
Stan is approached by the forest critters and asked to help them build a manger in anticipation of the birth of their Lord and Savior. Stan complies, only to find out that they serve a very different Lord.

5 out of 5 stars season 8 -- must buy!!   June 12, 2006
  7 out of 16 found this review helpful

season 8 is probably the best of the seasons. i've forgotten which episodes are on this season but pretty sure (from the cover) the south park anime episode is on here, the awesome- o one, erection day (i think) and all the other hilarious episodes that came with this season. for everyone saying that south park began to get bum after the 6th or 7th season obviously had their t.v.'s turned off during the later seasons. the writing on the later seasons seems to me that the staff didn't care anymore and just wrote about everything. and it was excellent. to not skip on this. i will own this the day it's released.

5 out of 5 stars Greatest Show Ever Made !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   June 10, 2006

Season 8 is in my opinion the last of the great southpark seasons. Season 9 and 10 so far are ok but not as good as the pervious years. The woodland critter christmas is one of the greatest southparks ever, hope you love it like i did.
