I set up the ol' VCR to catch the premiere, but I watched it at the same time, anyway. Next thing I knew, I was showing it to my brothers, who seemed to enjoy it more than I!
And the rest, as they say, is history!
It was hilarious. In 2000 they aired the show on our TV. Of course, I watched it from the begining. And that's was it. It only took one episode, and I was hooked.
But I didn't turn it off because watching something I didn't like was better than watching myself go insane from the disturbing thoughts in my serotonin-deprived brain. Almost immediately I realized I had been quick to judge. I was surprised by the intelligent social commentary and by the accurate portrayal of personality, relationships and stereotypes. I was fascinated by the characters' expressions, and by how their little faces could show so much emotion with such simple animation. South Park was the only thing that made me laugh during those first few months of sobriety, and it was a raw, deep laugh that came from an honest place, and that was new for me. I really needed to laugh. I consider South Park an integral part of my success in recovery from heroin abuse (five years clean on 10/28/2011 ), and I have proudly stated this at many meetings.
South Park is the only TV show I watch and the only reason I have cable. I clear my calendar for new episodes and watch the old episodes regularly on this site. My mom and I have laughed ourselves to tears over Baby-Fart-McGeezax (or is it Baby-Fark?) and the music that plays when the men are bouncing on their hippity-hop balls.
I was initially devastated by "You're Getting Old" but have since come to terms with the fact that someday there will no longer be new episodes, and I look forward to whatever Matt and Trey create in the future.

Then in 2001, I saw the episode where kenny actually dies, and then I said, if a animated comedy can make you laugh and cry it's a good one! But in 2007, when the adventureland movie, came out in stores, I bought right away. And that movie might be even funnier then the Simpsons movie! I've been a fan but I'm tired of the long breaks the middle of the season!
It's Imaginationland, not Adventureland. Still, pretty cool. Not very many people in my family are fond of SOUTH PARK, with the exception of my dad and little brother of course.
My favorite food: anything pasta related.
Favorite episodes: Whale Whores, My future self n me, Cartman gets an anal probe, Raisins
Favorite pairing: Stan/Cartman :)
friend: do you like fishsticks?
me: um, no?
so I asked what the hell was that all about and she showed me a clip from the episode. I liked it and started watching, ever sense then I've been hooked
for some years has not been broadcasted because of protests by catholic associations. fortunately MTV Italy since 2007 broadcasts 2 episodes a day.
The Spirit of Christmas was on that VHS and I watched it and ended up loving that short. I thought it was cool how they swore alot yet it still had a pretty good message. I got the episodes off the net for a while since I didn't have cable. Eventually 3 years later in college I got to see the episodes on TV as they aired.
Like alot of people I was sold on the show after seeing the Spirit of Christmas.
I now have all the season's on DVD and played World Of Warcraft for a while just because they had a trial copy of the season 10 DVD.
Now days I just can't wait for March and October to roll around. The series of Southpark just makes me as happy as I was when I first got to see it in highschool.
