Great show!
7 August 2005 | by (Brooklyn, New York) – See all my reviews

Only today have I seen all eight episodes of this hilarious show and I love it! Although I can imagine it being a solid show if continued, I think eight episodes is just the right number of episodes to quit on before it gets too repetitive. What I love about the show is how Trey Parker and Matt Stone don't focus as much on politics as they do on parody of situation comedies, ranging from "All in the Family" to "Friends." (Best example of this is episode seven, where the common sit-com plot of getting characters stuck in a small space to settle their differences is in effect.)

The sit-com spoofs are done very well and I think it would be overkill if it focused too much on Bush, since I'm sure Trey and Matt wouldn't mind doing it with any president. The characters, while formulaic, are developed very well, and you get to feel for them not as real people in the world, but as fictional characters, giving you a chance to take a break from all the political wars between all kinds of people in the Bush years. If you have a sense of humor and don't mind removing your political affiliation away for the viewing pleasure of the show, I suggest you go get the DVD!
