Could've been better, EASILY

"For the price of this disc- especially at some places- four episodes of South Park ain't bad. These are four pretty funny episodes. Now I could've given this 5 stars, but why didn't I? First of all, the video kinda sucks. I don't know what these other people are talking about but the audio sounded fine; typical South Park fare. But the video just seemed grainy to me. For graphics so simple, was it really that hard to get a good video quality out of this? But the video quality doesn't really bother me after staring at the screen for a minute or two. What REALLY bothers me is the fact that you're forced to sit through what seems like endless blathering of Matt and Trey (the creators) before each episode. It's a little interesting the first time, but it quickly becomes extremely stupid and pointless, and having to sit through it EVERY time you want to view an episode without being able to skip it is just inexcusable. And what does this disc have in the way of extras? A string of Comedy Central show ads. Like I really want to sit through 15 minutes of Make Me Laugh and Win Ben Stein's Money ads. Just skip it, especially considering half those shows have been dead for a while.These are four good episodes and I definately recommend this DVD (and the five others) to anyone who has a DVD player and is a South Park fan, but the quality of this disc easily could have been much higher, thus it does not deserve a high rating."

"South park is one of the best shows on any station. Sure some people complain about the language and some of the gags, but if you look and you do not have to look all that hard you will find meaningful commentaries on modern life just underneath the toilet humor. Some of the best episodes are on this volume such as Big Gay Al's big gay boat ride and Volcano, oh hell all of the epidsodes on this volume are winners."
