"South Park" is an award-winning animated series from creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. They have invented a whole town full of colorful personalities, where a group of eight-year-old boys try to understand the world around them. Their parents, teachers, and town leaders all mean well, but the boys learn through their misadventures that even adults make mistakes, and even the youngest and slowest among us can be wise. Despite the serious issues tackled by the show, it is sharp, funny, and often brilliant.
The crude animation, first done with paper cut-outs and then computerized, is deceptively primitive. The visual roughness fits the coarse language of the characters, because this is definitely a show for mature audiences. South Park is one of those rare shows that can make you laugh, and make you think about your long-held beliefs, both at the same time.
