Those familiar with the video quality of past South Park seasons on DVD shouldn't get their hopes up with this new set. They're not bad, but parts of the image still often look washed out. Color saturation is decent, but the contrast level is still much too high - and there is a lot of noise to show for it. The episodes also look soft, and I even detetcted a dirt piece here and there. The 1.33:1 full screen transfers are watchable, but not the sharpest looking.

 

All the episodes here are in English Dolby Stereo. Dialogue, as with past South Park DVD release, is crisp and easy to hear. Fidelity is high, while the music and sound effects add a bit of a life to the episodes - which is a plus, since the series is known to be pretty violent and action packed a good amount of the time. Still, these are pretty straightforward tracks - just as they were in the past. 

English closed captions via your television are also available.

 

Die-hard fans of South Park may want this set for the exclusive introductions to the episodes by Mr. Eric Cartman. The introductions are a few seconds long each, where Cartman presents a "lesson" to be had by the episode. Truthfully, they aren't a major deal, and this is probably not worth buying just for these short intros unless you're quite the completist. But to sweeten the deal, you also get a sticker and membership card to The Eric Theodore Cartman Society in the package. Sweet.

 

This is a fantastic collection of South Park episodes, presented in a clever and very fitting way. The episode presentations are still above average, and while the new Cartman introductions are fun, they're not worth getting this set for if you own previous seasons on DVD. But for casual fans of the series, this two-disc set is definitely worth looking into.
