Plot: What’s it about?

South Park quickly established itself as a leader when it came to insulting people, places, things, religions, skin colors, sexual orientations and about everything else you can imagine. Below are some summaries of episodes of South Park: Winter Wonderland. Some of these feature the famous Mr. Hankey and his new family…Enjoy.

A Very Crappy Christmas – Mr. Hankey has yet to make his annual appearance out of the toilets of South Park. What ever are they to do? In an attempt to save Christmas, the gang tries to save it by making a Christmas video called “The Spirit of Christmas” (ironically enough…the title of the first South Park cartoon). Mr. Hankey has a family now, complete with a drunk wife.

Are you there God, it’s me, Jesus – Set before the New Millenium, people about South Park are finding that they need to see Jesus to get a renewed prophecy for the new century. Cartman gets his, uh, period and so do some of the others as they journey into “manhood”. Ok…

Cartman’s Silly Hate Crime 2000 – After Cartman throws a rock at the only black kid in South Park (aptly named…Token) he is sent to prison. The other kids need Cartman and his weight to win the sled race down the mountain. A good episode.

Something you can do with your Finger – Cartman wants to form an all boy band ala Backstreet Boys and N’Sync (though I prefer Color Me Badd and New Kids on the Block) but God has foreseen that this happen. They start it all in a mall, as did Tiffany. Good luck guys…

Video: How does it look?

South Park is presented in it’s original aspect ratio, full-screen. While the colors are bright and vibrant (you can just see the texture for Cartman’s coat), there is a little keeping it from being a perfect transfer. New episodes equal a better picture, that’s true…but this ain’t perfect. Colorado’s rockies have never looked so good, though.

Audio: How does it sound?

Presented in a Dolby Digital 2.0 surround mix, the audio won’t light up your speakers. In fact, I found myself having to turn mine up as the opening credits and the body of the show were at two totally different levels. Until you’ve heard the group, Fingerbang, perform in 2.0 sound–well–you just haven’t lived!
