Storyline

The curious, adventure-seeking, fourth grade group of boys, Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny, all join in in buffoonish adventures that sometimes evolve nothing. Sometimes something that was simple at the start, turns out to get out of control. Everything is odd in the small mountain town, South Park, and the boys always find something to do with it.

Trivia

George Clooney, Jay Leno, Jennifer Aniston, and Robert Smith (lead singer of "The Cure") accepted roles on the show. Samuel L. Jackson, Steven Spielberg, Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Buscemi, and Jeff Daniels asked to do guest voices, but were either rejected or declined the offer afterward. Stone and Parker also asked Mr. Show with Bob and David (1995) alumni Tom Kenny, David Cross, Bob Odenkirk, Brian Posehn, and John Ennis as well as Family Guy (1999) voice talent Seth MacFarlane to do guest voices, but all declined because their shows were doing well (Mr. Show has since been canceled, and MacFarlane again declined due to other commitments).

Goofs

Exactly who is related to who in the Marsh family is never consistent. Early episodes imply that Jimbo and Marvin (Stan's grandfather) are on Sharon's side of the family, whereas more recent ones imply they are on Randy's side. Being on Sharon's side makes sense for Jimbo, as he has a different last name. However, Marvin's last name is, indeed, confirmed to be Marsh. Matt Stone revealed in an interview that Jimbo Kerns is Randy's half-brother. See more »

Sadly Misunderstood
10 December 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

South Park is one of the most misunderstood, and also the most intelligent shows on television.

South Park is a satirical look on most anything from Western society - politics, the media, today's youth, celebrities, violence in our society, and much much more. However, instead of presenting these issues as they are, they alternately project them through the exploits of four young boys in South Park, Colorado.

Unfortunately, many people take the show solely at face value, refusing to see the intelligence in it - South Park is admittedly filled with racist and sexist jokes, along with other offensive material. The problem lies within the fact that most people don't seem to understand the concept of satire and self parody.

I admit that I, myself, was one of these people - for years I refused to watch that "garbage," until finally a friend forced me to actually watch a whole episode, and I realized that the show was actually making a point.

So, if you haven't done so, go - watch an episode. You'll feel smarter when you're done.
