I DARE you to fill in the missing letter

The world of South Park continues to get crazier!  Randy Marsh faces the world’s worst Wheel of Fortune puzzle and the biggest crap, the homeless invade South Park, Cartman gets Tourette Syndrome, and Guitar Hero makes all the kids rock stars.  The epic battle for Imaginationland brings the kids of South Park into a worldwide battle for the fate of the Earth.

South Park—Season 11 aired from March 7, 2007 to November 14, 2007 on Comedy Central.  The series won an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming One Hour or More) for the three episode series “Imaginationland” (which aired in the second half of the series from October 17, 2007 to November 11, 2010.


Guitar Hero is a gateway to Heroin Hero!

This is one of my favorite seasons of South Park.  It is chocked full of great episodes which illustrate how not only South Park can be topical, but it also can have solid written series.  The show also shows it has matured as it has aged and that both Trey Parker and Matt Stone can be juvenile (in a smart way), but also add some great political commentary.

There are so many great episodes in this run (and most of the “not great” episodes are still strong).  The Wheel of Fortune episode alone is worth the box set, but you have the great merger of zombie movies with the homeless, and it looks at the popular Guitar Hero and does a great job exploring the pop-boom.  As a person who played Guitar Hero a lot (and a bit of real “lame” guitar), this is a fun and true episode.


Can Jesus save Imaginationland?

The cream of the crop in this season however is the three part “Imaginationland”.  If you grew up in the ’80s, you can watch this episode over and over again and see characters that  you grew up with.  You get heroes like the Copper Kid from Silverhawks, Snarf from ThunderCats, and Strawberry Shortcake, and villains like the trolls from the animated 1977 Hobbit, the Gmork from The Neverending Story, and Goro from Mortal Kombat…plus a return of Cartman’s evil Woodland Critters from Season 8’s “Woodland Critter Christmas”.  It is fun to try to see which characters you can see (and pause it to see more.  The whole episode also ties in things like First Blood, Stargate, and Lord of the Rings.  It is a crowning achievement for the series and could have been another featured film like South Park:  Bigger, Longer, and Uncut.

South Park—Season 11 shows that the long running series still has teeth.  It is a great show which is smart and stupid at the same time.  Unlike something like Family Guy which goes for the one-off jokes, South Park crafts the shows around the jokes.  If you left South Park years ago, you should check out South Park—Season 11 if you want a good ride.
