""Hits Vol 1" are 10 of Matt and Trey's favorite episodes. Commentary included with each episode. Also included in the set will be "The Spirit Of Christmas" short. (note: although there were 2 Spirit of Christmas shorts done, I am unaware of which one will be included with this set. I would assume it will be the second one, parts of which were featured season four's "A Very Crappy Christmas")
The episodes included are:
* "Best Friends Forever"
* "Casa Bonita"
* "Good Times with Weapons"
* "Red Hot Catholic Love"
* "The Return of the Fellowship of the Rings to the Two Towers"
* "Scott Tenorman Must Die"
* "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset"
* "Trapped in the Closet""
Only for those who don't own any of the season sets

"There's a lot of complaints about this DVD set containing various South Park episodes, and they are all correct in their criticisims, but for those who don't own any of the single season sets and just want a compilation of great episodes, this is worth picking up. The Hits: Vol. 1 features ten episodes that creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone compiled, along with four bonus episodes and the infamous short "The Spirit of Christmas", which in itself is worth checking this out for (if you haven't already seen it on the internet that is). Some of the best, recent episodes of the series are here; including the Paris Hilton bashing "Stupid Spoiled Whole Video Playset", "The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers", "Good Times With Weapons", "Red Hot Catholic Love", and "Scott Tenorman Must Die", as well as "Best Friends Forever" and the controversey causing "Trapped in the Closet" which aren't available on DVD yet. The bonus episodes are a blast too, including the fittingly titled "It Hits the Fan", the debut of Timmy in "Timmy 2000", "Death Camp of Tolerance", and the hilarious "Fat Butt and Pancake Head". There's commentaries by Matt and Trey too, but everything on these discs is nothing that hasn't been seen before. As I said before, the Hits: Vol. 1 is worth picking up if you just want an assortment of great episodes and don't want to lay down the cash for the single season sets, but for those who do own seasons of the series, this can be left on the shelf."
Good set for a casual fan

"This set, like any hits compilation, is subject to scrutiny. Like many fans have stated, if you own the season sets, it's a dent in the pocket for a handful of things you don't already own. For fans who don't shell out for the seasons, but have really liked some of their recent episodes, this is a deal for less than 20 bucks and having 14 episodes.
Of course there's almost no denying this was released because of the hoopla around "Trapped in the Closet" and South Park scoring its best ratings since it started. This collection also highlights something the creators note in their brief commentary: many of the episodes on here are recent. Matt and Trey like to feel they're getting better and their selection reflect their feelings and pretty much how I know I feel about the show as of late: that it has gotten better.
As for the selection of episodes: I think it's pretty good. There are few South Parks that I don't like, so any collection would do. I was pleased that they included the infamous Scott Tenorman Must Die and the Death Camp of Tolerance (and that one's a bonus ep), as those were two of MY faves. I don't think there's any episode included here that isn't good. Given, Trey and Matt don't go back really far into the early seasons into the "classic" episodes, but that's okay. This selection shows how good South Park has become and also reflects how topical South Park can be.
Overall, it's a good collection and a steal for casual fans. If you've been buying the boxed sets and don't want to drop too much money, I'd stick with the season sets. But don't knock this one - it's still pretty good, even if it does merely serve casual fans."

"Ive watched South Park since it first began. I think the newer seasons like 6-9 are much better then the previous seasons. This set might be a money making scam, but I dont own any seasons of South Park. All the epsiodes on this dvd set is from season four and on (sorry fans if im wrong about this, im sure you'll correct me) and Im sure more fans will point this out in futher reviews. The only problem I had with the set is why is the curse words still edited out? I dont see the point of releasing a set on dvd if its edited. All in all, a great set with a few epsiodes that I enjoy missing. A great buy if your a causal fan of the show, not a die hard fan."
