"After the blow-out success of their movie, creators Stone and Parker realized just how much they could get away with in their show (there are some funny stories about that in the mini-commentaries to be found on these discs). They used this new-found power not just to reach new heights of depravity, but also to more effectively utilize the show as their own personal soapbox. A tactic like this would cripple shows of less caliber; it is what gave South Park its new legs.
Proving themselves capable of taking on any subject (and rivaling even some news programs with their blink-of-an-eye topicality), season four finds the kids waxing philosophic on hate crimes (Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000), the Elian Gonzales controversy (Quintuplets 2000), holistic medicine (Cherokee Hair Tampons), the Confederate flag (Chef Goes Nanners), the presidential election (Trapper Keeper), and, of course, religion, in the two-parter "Do the Handicapped Go to Hell?" & "Probably," which could be viewed as a quasi-sequel to the movie.
Most notably, this season introduces us to Timmy, a character that Comedy Central initially (and understandably) balked at. Thank God they let this vocabulary-challenged child on the air; who would've guessed that this unlikely staple to the show would prove to be much much more than a one-joke wonder.
The boys behind the screen also churned out some of their most famous episodes this year. Kenny gets grosser than ever (and Cartman slims down, maybe) in "Fat Camp." South Park goes rogue when the parents all leave town in "The Wacky Molestation Adventure." We are treated to a disturbing (and absolutely hilarious) look into the gory depths of Cartman's brain in "Helen Keller! The Musical." Mr. Hanky returns in "A Very Crappy Christmas." And, in arguably one of the shows best episodes ever (if not the most memorable), Cartman -- seeking more "mature" friends -- joins NAMBLA.
The show skids a few times in this season. Their recreation of Dickens' "Great Expectations" is amusing, but only gets laugh-worthy when the show strays from the script (Genesis machine! Robot monkeys!). Even on the mini-commentary (these guys aren't just a treat to listen to, they also give the inside scoop on a lot of things you'd want to know anyway), the creators admit "Chef Goes Nanners" has their most "bummer" ending. And although "4th Grade" is responsible for introducing us to Ms. Choksondik (and also for finally outing Mr. Garrison), it seems like one of the weakest episodes in this season.
But, then again, in a season starring Cheech and Chong, where we're treated to a reality-warping Kyle and Cartman as the tooth fairy, where a handicapped child gets a handicapped pet, and where the kids form a boy band with an unlikely name, the competition is notably fierce. Another great season for a stand-out show."
One of the best seasons of South Park...

It was worth it. 411- Fourth Grade 10/10 Great introduction to the boys in 4th Grade. 412- Trapper Keeper 10/10 Also another great show, the world according to that episode would be falling apart by now! 413- Helen Keller, the Musical 9/10 A heartwarming Thanksgiving special 414- Great Expectations 7/10 Weakest from this season 415- Fat Camp 13/10 2nd best from this season 416- The Wacky Molestation Adventure 9/10 This was a cool episode, blaming the parents for molestation 417- A Very Crappy Christmas 10/10 My 2nd favourite Xmas episode- another episode I saw on Fathers Day 2004 My advice: Buy now before it's too late..."

"I have never been a big fan of South Park, but really got into it when the season sets were released. I have seen the first three seasons, and while they are great, it only gets better in this season. The raunch and vulgarity you would expect from the show is even sharper in season 4, and you will find even more satire within the episodes. Ranging from issues such as race, government and boy bands, the creators of South Park spare no one. Many of my favorite episodes are contained in this set, a few being Cartman's Silly Hate Crime, Fat Camp, and Trapper Keeper. In Hate Crime, Cartman goes to prison for committing a crime against another race. Clearly pokes fun at the hate crime laws in this country with the message that crime is crime and should be punished accordingly. Many of the episode contain this kind of criticism and that is what makes the show much more than vulgar trash like some people think. Those are only 3 of my favorites though, and there are other classic episodes, NAMBLA definately being one. The only episode I don't care too much for is Pip, as it contains none of the South Park regulars. It isn't a horrible episode though. But as you can tell, the best episodes in my opinion are the Cartman-centric ones, as another reviewer put it. The DVD package we get is okay, but I know there are many more extras we could have and should have gotten. Essentially there are only the mini-commentaries on some episodes, but other than 17 great episodes there is nothing else really exciting in this whole set. This may disappoint some fans of the show, but I am just happy to own the complete season 4 that I can watch whenever I feel like doing so. I think if these sets were $10-$15 cheaper it would be a fair price, but I do feel like the $49.99 SRP is too high. Usually I would care, but this is South Park and this is a show worthy of being overpriced if there is any. So to wrap it up, I recommend saving your $$$ and buying this set, the best season released to dvd so far. 17 classic episodes are here that every South Park fan should own."
