For those South Park fans who have wondered if their beloved animated series would lose its satirical edge after a decade on the air, the Complete Tenth Season boxed set provides a resounding negative. Creators Matt Park and Trey Stone come out swinging with the season opener, "The Return of Chef," which addresses both the media frenzy churned up over the headline-grabbing "Trapped in the Closet" episode from the previous season, as well as the departure of Isaac Hayes, who voiced the well-loved Chef (and netted the series its highest ratings for a debut episode in years). Not content to leave one religion alone, the show tackles the 2006 riots over the depiction of Mohammed in Dutch newspapers (and delivers a much-deserved zing to Family Guy) in the two-part "Cartoon Wars" (the revelation of Family Guy's real writers is among the funniest notions ever penned for South Park) and intelligent design in "Go God Go" (Mrs. Garrison is up in arms over being forced to teach evolution until the arrival of Richard Dawkins changes her mind). Also in the show's firing line are such sacred cows as Oprah Winfrey (Towelie pens a faux memoir a la A Million Little Pieces in "A Million Little Fibers"), Al Gore (who attempts to drum up interest in his hunt for the mythical "ManBearPig"), environmentalists (who create a new form of pollution with their hybrids in "Smug Alert!"), the popular online game World of Warcraft ("Make Love, Not Warcraft," which earned the series an Emmy nomination) and George W. Bush (who tangles with Kyle over 9/11 in "Mystery of the Urinal Deuce"). Of course, South Park wouldn't be South Park without moments of jaw-dropping bad taste, and viewers are treated to not one but two jokes about the death of Steve Irwin (including his appearance at a Halloween party thrown by Satan in the critically reviled "Hell on Earth 2006), children with terminal diseases, teacher-student sexual relations, and a whole host of bodily functions and absurdly graphic violence (the latter is provided by a trio of serial killers in "Hell on Earth 2006"). Supplemental features on the three-disc set are limited to a brief introductory commentary track on each of the episodes by Parker and Stone; while short, they underscore the duo's irreverence and highlight some of the trials they underwent to produce the season (in particular, the network's concern over "Cartoon Wars"). --Paul Gaita

- South park vs Family Guy
South Park makes fun of things that matter. When anything is so BIG that one can not poke fun at it. Then it is to big for anyones good. Family Guy tagets B-List stars from the 80's. I'm not scared of the 80's. While Family Guy is fun. I would rather poke fun at my fears. Fear not to poke fun. ...more info

- South Park Season 10
As an Adult I find the Humor in this show kind of fun. I do not care for all the ideas that are put into the show, but now a days I would not be suprised that kids haven't already tried some of this stuff. It's the ideas that come from matt and trey that make one think that if they have thought of it then who hasen't....more info
- Another Typical Season with two Atypical episodes
Let's face it - we know the general formula by now - lots of social satire, some shocking stuff, usually involving the bowels/rectum in some way, maybe a couple really cheesy pop songs, and you have yourself a south park episode. If you like South Park in previous seasons, you will like this one. If you think South Park is a lousy show, go watch another cartoon. This season is not going to change your mind. This season has two notables IMO - Chef departs (yeah, I think he's definitely dead) in an episode where they spliced old audio clips from previous episodes, which is both ridiculous and funny at the same time. And of course, the Warcraft episode, where they got a lot of willing help from Blizzard Entertainment. One notable dud is Stanley's cup, which produces little in the ways of laughs or satire. Oh yes, you need to watch a couple of episodes of any season of family guy before you watch this season - otherwise two of the episodes will not make sense. Enjoy!...more info
- South Park Issues The Challenge To Family Guy
With season 10 the South Park creators set out to give us something that would challenge the creators of Family Guy and would set out in challenging those who like the Family Guy comedy. They also set out in making a point about the whole showing an image of the Prophet Muhammad on national TV, they set out in making a point about freedom of expression and not allowing terror threats to scare them. Did they win that war? You'll have to watch this season to find out.
Episode 1: The Return of Chef: In this episode we see Chef return to South Park after a time with the Super Adventure Club who we later learn that they are a group of explorers that show a special interest in the children of remote tribes. The boys have to cope with this change in Chef and the influence that the Super Adventure Club had on him. In reality this is the episode where we say goodbye to Chef for good, as in season 9 South Park had an episode called Trapped in the Closet which made fun of the "Religion" of Scientology. Isaac Hayes who was the voice of Chef is a Scientologist, he seemed to hold a double standard when making fun of religion. It's OK to make fun of Christianity, Judaism, Mormonism etc but as long as you don't make fun of Scientology it's OK but if you do then Hayes said goodbye to South Park. This is an amazing episode and is really enjoyable listening to Chef speak as it's chopped together dialogue from previous episodes.
Episode 2: Smug Alert: "I know, for this episode let's make fun of those people who drive environmentally friendly cars and suddenly think they're better than everybody else." This is what Stone & Parker would have thought when coming up with the idea for this episode as they do just that. They pick up on the smugness of these people and tear them apart which is a very intelligent move by the creators. The story is simple; Gerald, Kyles dad is now the owner of a hybrid car and he suddenly feels it's his duty to insult those who have gas gusler cars. Gerald moves the family to San Francisco where everybody drives a Hybrid, but Stan being upset with this decides to write a song that will encourage more people to buy Hybrids which should get Kyle to come back home. This is a great episode with a great message about those people who to drive the hybrid cars, it takes the subject and says to those people "I know you drive them, and I don't care."
Episode 3 & 4: Cartoon Wars Part 1 & 2: This is an episode that stirred up a lot of controversy as these two episodes were based around the whole image of Muhammad hysteria that was surrounding the media at the time. Stone & Parker had made the episodes with the clear intention of Comedy Central showing the image on TV and setting an example about freedom of speech but unfortunately it wasn't to be. The story of the episodes are that Family Guy are set to show an image of Muhammad in one of their episodes; Cartman being utterly offended by this sets out to put an end to Family Guy once and for all but he has one obstacle; Kyle. These are a great set of episodes that just rip Family Guy to pieces when talking about their comedy, the whole notion of Family Guy being written my Manatees is brilliant and when you really give it some thought you start to think to yourself, "Well maybe this is possible."
Episode 5: A Million Little Fibers: This is by far the weakest episode of the bunch as it's an episode focusing directly on Towelie. He decides to write a book about his life but everything keeps going wrong and he can't get his book published because he's a towel. He assumes a human personality and changes his book around which becomes an instant success and Oprah Winfrey wants to put her name on this book. This is really one of the weakest episodes out of them all and I think was just a filler to get to the next great idea.
Episode 6: Manbearpig: This is the typical insult episode that rips apart Al Gore over the movie he made called an Inconvenient Truth, it makes fun of the whole "Look at me I'm an ex-president trying to keep the limelight" that seems to surround Al Gore. He has a new theory in South Park and that's a monster that will be a danger to everyone, Manbearpig. Half man, half bear and half pig, he can't prove it but he's super serial.
Episode 7: Tsst: I honestly don't think I've ever laughed so much at a South Park episode, Cesar Milan of the Dog Whisperer fame is called in to take control of Cartman and his bad behaviour. Using some techniques that would only usually be performed on Dogs, Cartman isn't happy about being humiliated and resorts to making some drastic plans for revenge.
Episode 8: Make Love, Not Warcraft: Everybody has them, everybody has that one friend who would quite openly admit that they would rather spend the day on World of Warcraft than go outside and play. Parker and Stone set out to make fun of these kids and show them that they need to get out more, some people may find it harsh but some people like myself would find it utterly hysterical.
Episode 9: Mystery of the Urinal Deuce: The world's biggest conspiracy of all time will finally be uncovered when Eric Cartman exposes the true culprit behind the September 11th attacks. How will that person prove his innocence and who really was behind 9/11. This is a funny episode that gives a big slap in the face of the conspiracy theorists, I can't help but think that Parker and Stone wanted to give their opinions on the subject in this episode rather than just be intelligent about it.
Episode 10: Miss Teacher Bangs A Boy: Eric Cartman is selected to become South Park elementary schools hall monitor, so he dons the look of a bounty hunter and sets out to clean up the halls. He accidentally stumbles upon a teacher in a relationship with a student and wants to put a stop to it. A very good episode with some strong home truths.
Episode 11: Hell On Earth 2006: Satan is throwing the biggest Halloween costume party ever, and no one will be admitted without a wristband. Every detail must be perfect for the prince of darkness. But even Satan can't foresee everything. A prominent religious organization, an ex-lover and the antics of the most notorious serial killers of all time threaten Satan's fun. A complete slaughtering of the my Super Sweet 16 girls which I personally feel was long overdue from the South Park guys.
Episode 12: Go God Go Part 1: South Park Elementary faces strong opposition to the topic of evolution being taught to the 4th graders. The most vocal protests are from Ms. Garrison who has to teach it. Eric Cartman can't be bothered with what's going on in class. He's busy manipulating his own personal time-line to align with the precise release date of the Nintendo Wii. A great satirical episode that this time doesn't poke fun at the notion of religion but pokes fun at a world without religion, would we all really get along like Richard Dawkins says we would?
Episode 13: Go God Go Part 2: Last week Eric Cartman froze himself in an attempt to make his three-week wait for a hot, new, gaming device pass quickly. A freak accident landed him over 500 years in the future and now he's stuck there. The future is a tumultuous place with warring factions, angry sea otters and no Nintendo. Will Cartman find a way back to his own time? A humorous look on a future without religion, how would we find a way to keep fighting if we don't have the excuse of religion.
Episode 14: Stanley's Cup: Stan Marsh has hit rock bottom. He's got no job, no bicycle and his only way out of a bad situation, is to coach the local pee wee hockey team. Once a hotshot pee wee hockey player himself, Stan Marsh has tried to put those days behind him. But he's still living with the memory of how let his team down when he missed the winning shot in the big game. Now, he's about to find out that being a coach means facing your past. He's determined to show his kids what it's like to be a winner! Personally I didn't understand this episode and it wasn't very good, the whole children having cancer thing I think was simply for shock value.
A really good season with two 2 parters that would have you thinking and laughing at the same time which is a trademark of South Park....more info
- Another Awesome Season!!!
This season is not as good as other seasons, but it's still alright. One of my favorite episodes is when it's HALLOWEEN and Satan is throwing a big Sweet Sixteen party and acts like a spoiled rich teenager. Also Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny deal with the death of their friend Chef, stop Manbearpig, try to get a Family Guy episode pulled, defeat a nerdy gamer on World of Warcraft, and stop Ike from having sexual relations with his smokin' hot teacher. (Nice!) All this and more happen in SOUTH PARK: THE COMPLETE 10TH SEASON!!!...more info
Plain and simple, its South Park. You either love it or you hate it. This season had some great episodes. One of my favorites being the 'World of Warcraft' episode as my boyfriend plays the game (and I bought this DvD for him) and its just so funny, and sadly so true. These are episodes you can watch again and again. Classic. ...more info
- Season 10 South Park
Been watching the show since it started. This is one of my favorite seasons. The World of Warcraft episode is epic....more info
- Always funny.
If you enjoy South Park, this is a no-brainer. As with every season, it has ups (Like Trapped in the Closet) and downs (like A Million Little Fibers), but the good episodes more than make up for the bad ones....more info
- Jumped shark
When it comes to my South Park DVD collection, I stopped with season 9. I loved the ep with the dog whisperer, and the wii and hybrid car episodes were okay, but the other ones were pretty lame. I have never been a big fan of towlie.
I don't know what people saw in the video game episode...I thought it was one of the worst episodes the show has ever done. IT WAS SO BORING. Like 6 other shows have done an episode with the very same premise, which was not even interesting the first time....more info
- South Park Sidetracked
I'm a huge fan of South Park. The offensiveness of the show is funny, not offensive because they are equal-opportunity offenders: they are cruel and offensive to EVERYONE.
But season 10 is South Park off-kilter. The show is very in-the-moment political and knee-jerk reactionary in almost every episode. In the commentary they even admit this: they were too focused on polarized politicism and responding to criticism.
It has its moments, but overall it's a very poor representation of the series. To paraphrase, stealing from The Simpsons, "Worst Season Ever."...more info
- gone too far
South park crossed the line in season 10. Not as much as in season 11 or 12 but still too far. I was vomiting after every episode. one of the worst seasons for SP or any show for that matter ever. even the "warcraft" episode was in bad taste in my eyes.
- hell yeah!
Season 10 is filled with some very memorbale and hilarious episoded. Heres the list.
1. Return of Chef-After spending sometime away from South Park, Chef returns but has become a much different person.
2. Smug Alert- Stan get everyone in South Park to buy electric cars. However, the cars cause an unexpected danger.
3. Cartoon Wars pt 1. The show Family Guy is going to have an image depicting Muhammed. The South Park town panics when fearing a terrorist attack because of this.
4. Cartooon Wars pt 2. It is discovered that Cartman hates Family Guy and is using this situation as an opportunity to get the show cancelled. Along the way, he is aided by a certain kid he met at FOX studios who also hates Family Guy.
5. A milion little Fibers- Towelie writes his memoirs butrealizes no one is going to publish a book about a towel. So he pretends to be a real person.
6. Manbearpig- Al Gore comes to South Park and warns the boys about a creature named Manbearpig.
7. TSST- The School board has decided that their fed up with Cartman's immoral (and quite erradic) behavior. So Cesar Millan from the "Dog Whisperer" is hired to set Cartman straight. Although Millan may have what it takes to get the job, Cartman's not going down without a fight.
8. Make love not Warcraft- The boys and their friends try to stop mad gamer in World of Warcraft.
9. Mystery of the Urinal Deuce- Cartman leanrns the "truth" about 9/11 while Mr. Mackey tries to find the culprit who went number two in a urinal stall.
10. Miss Teacher Bangs a boy- Cartman is hired to be the school hall monitor and the kindergarden teacher has an affair with Kyle's brother, Ike.
11. Hell on Earth 2006- It satan's bday, and he wants to have the perfect party.
12. Go God Go. Cartman cannot seem to be patient enough to wait 3 weeks the Nintento Wii's release. So he decides to freeze himself for the period of duration. Also, Scientist Richard Dawkens is assigned to teach the South Park kids about evulotion when Mrs. Garrison refuses to do so.
13. Go God Go pt 2. Cartman unforunatly finds himself waking up 500 yrs into the father, rather than just the 3 weeks as he wanted. He wakes up to witness the future has become an Athiest society.
14. Stanley's Cup-Stan is hired to coach a pee wee hickey team. However, coaching is no walk in the park.
That basically. Def see because it willl provide a lot of good memories. ...more info
- Now, if you'll excuse me Kyle, I've got some idea balls to remove from a manatee tank.
^^ That quote from Cartman in Cartoon Wars 2 is the one reason you should all buy this....more info
