A DVD review

"I had already owned volumes 1, 5 & 6 when I got this DVD. The episodes are absolutely hilarious... the most side-splitting being the classic "Starvin' Marvin."I gave this DVD a less than perfect rating for the following reasons:While the other episodes I owned had closed captioning enabled, this DVD did not. There is no explaination as to why there is no closed captioning on this DVD. Not only is closed captioning necessary for the hearing impaired and an aid for those learning English, it's almost a requirement to understand the lyrics of the songs or what some of the kids are saying at times... it's not like you can read the lips of a cartoon to figure out what they're saying.This DVD loses another star due to the "bonus" skits with Matt and Trey that cannot be skipped. They are cute skits, but who wants to sit through them every single time? People buy these DVDs to see "South Park," not Matt and Trey. The DVD lables these "introductions" to be a bonus, but you have to sit through 4 of these things, one before each "South Park" episode and you have to fast forward through them instead of being able to skip them. This makes me wonder, why do I have this on DVD in the first place? Of course, if I had it on tape, I would have blown the heads off the VCR by now from all the fast forwarding.Buy it for the episodes, but prepare to suffer carpal tunnel syndrome from holding on the fast forward button ad infinitum."

"I bought this for one reason and one reason only - the South Park Christmas Special featuring Mr. Hankey! Truly one of the funniest shows I've ever seen on television!Oh, "Mecha Streisand" and "Tom's Rhinoplasty" (featuring 'Ms. Ellen') are hilarious, too."
