This is what Southparkstudios.com had to say about that:

According to tvshowsondvd.com you can expect the DVD release of South Park - Season 5 on Nov. 9th, following a delay from an earlier planned street date in October.

Just found out some news regarding a possible new episode plot. Even if it's a joke, it's still pretty funny, so I'll post it here:

 
Quote
From South Park Alliance:
Tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Matt Stone and Trey Parker discussed an episode idea. This could be for real or could be a joke.

The idea was basically that there is a vote for a school mascot, and the choices are a big douche and a terd sandwich. Stan decides that he doesn't want to vote for either, and people are angry because of this.

Along with the idea they also showed a "clip" which was actually about 4 words and a shot that looked like a storyboard image.

Well, seeing as the new episodes air starting on Wednesday, you can bet they're working on this one right as we speak. The Cartman being class president will probably have a lot to do with what goes on in the new ones...unless they held that for nothing. They did promise us an episode on why Ms. Choksondik died and never delivered.

South Park was never about sutbility, but over exaggerating the current situation to the point where it becomes ultra stupid. By showing the paralells that this ridicules situation has with the real situation, it generally shows how stupid the real situation itslef actually is. Remember Red Hot Catholic Love?

By the by, here are the air dates for season 8 part 2, from South Park Studios:

 
Quote
New Episode Air Dates
Well boys and girls it's the second half of season eight will air on October 27th!

October 27 - Episode 808
November 3 - Episode 809
November 10 - Episode 810
November 17 - Episode 811

After the November 17th episode, South Park will take a small break for the Thanksgiving holiday. A classic episode will air on November 24th and then new episodes will air:

December 1 - Episode 812
December 8 - Episode 813
December 15 Episode 814

I'm going to stand alone on this, but I really hate when South Park touches upon the "current" controversy.  The episodes are usually poorly written and painful to watch in repeat.  My examples?  "Child Abduction is Not Funny," nor "Quintuplets."  Those kind of episodes did not age well at all.

Personally, I think it's lazy writing to take the story of the day and write a show about it.  It generally isn't that hard to insert the cast into the wacky situation of the news.  Any hack comedian can do that.  IMO, the best South Parks are the ones where they either come up with their own plotlines, or when they spoof current trends, like "Lil Crime Stoppers."  Even for the latter, they tend to overdo it, making those types of episodes weak.

Eh, it's just a "To each his own" type thing. Personally, I like a mixture best. I'd rather have half topical episodes like "Red Hot Catholic Love" and "Butt Out", and half pre-season 6 style, like "Scott Tennerman Must Die", and "Cartman Joins NAMBLA" and "Tooth Fairy Tats 2000".

No we're not - Season 8 has only had 7 episodes air in America so far, the new upcoming U.S. episodes are the remainder of the current season. We're only half a season behind, and considering this season's only going to have 14 episodes, it won't be long before we've caught up with them.

Does anyone have a complete list of the "27 Greatest South Park Episodes" that Comedy Central's touting?  A lot of those in the Top 10 are good, but I want to see which episodes I missed.

Season 8 of South Park premiered about half an hour ago in Australia, and I can safely say, watching it on computer really can't compare to watching a clear picture on TV. I'm looking forward to clear quality of the rest of the half a season, even though I've already seen them.

Death Camp of Tolerance at number 4, but Chinpokomon and Chef's Chocolate Salty Balls at 24 and 25? What the hell were they thinking? Some of those definetely deserved their place though, like 5-8 on that list. Fantastic episodes right there.

Oh come on! That was a fucking awesome episode. Just the songs were enough to put it in my top 5 favorites.

The first time I saw that episode it creeped me out. But then I saw it again and I liked it. I got a good laugh. It's not on my top ten or anything, but it's one of the better ones in my book.

I wouldn't call "Fat Butt and Pancake Head" the best episode ever, but it was still quite good.

Out of the 7 episodes aired, season 8 has 3 episodes listed. Seems to confirm what we already knew, after 8 years Matt and Trey can still write a damn fine cartoon show.

A turd sandwich is a candidate for school mascot. I see.
I've always loved "Fat Butt and Pancake Head". Wouldn't be my #1, but definately in my top five.

There are only a choice few bad South Parks in my opinion.
Also about this week's new episode, I believe there's more to the story. Unless the plot gets changed before its airing, which it sometimes does, Stan refuses to take place in the election, prompting P. Diddy to come to South Park and try to kill him. (i.e.: "Vote or Die" )
Oh, here are two pics for this new one:

Those pictures from the new episode look really cool!  But there's one thing on South Park I would really love to see.  And that is Chef having a run-in with Towelie!  What would Chef say to him?  How would they interact?

Plus, I would like to see another episode where the kids (and possibly Chef) have an adventure with Towelie.

What a bunch of propaganda. I liked the rainforest episode because it totally went against all common moral. This is just saying the same shit you could hear on a public service announcement. Looks lame.

You have no imagination.  I bet you a nickel they play the whole "rock the vote" camp as a chump.  I mean, P Diddy seems to represent that whole scene in the episode, and they're not gonna have anything nice to say about him.

The whole story behind this is the fact that quite a few celebrities (namely P. Diddy) have recently been campaigning, telling people that it's incredibly important to vote. Matt & Trey went out publically saying that you should only vote if you truly know what the hell you're talking about, and this caused a little controversy... in fact, that was actually one of the main things Sean Penn was angry about in his letter.

When you think about it, this is a perfect plot for a SP episode right now. Not only does it give Matt & Trey a chance to blast the election, sattirizing both the candidates and the pro-voting celebrities, but also to justify their point. Either way, it'll definately be a more in-depth election parody than the sub-plot of Trapper Keeper was, we'll just have to wait and see if it's funnier or not.

By the way, I've got great news for Australians. Remember before when the Team America release date for here was early March 2005? Well, I saw a commercial for Team America during the season premiere of South Park on SBS, and it looks as if the release date has been pushed forward to December 2. Hurrah!   smile

I just finished watching the new episode and it was very uneven in my opinion.  The highlight for me was the "Vote or Die" song which I thought was hilarious.  The rest of it was alright, but not really good.  Considering how good Trey and Matt can twist an issue, I was a little disappointed at how obvious the episode was overall.

Yeah, but nobody ever lost a nickel by underestimating the intelligence of the American public.  Matt and Trey smack us in the face with a frying pan every now and again, but we need it!

Every other sociopolitical humorist picks a "safe" side and does his lame little one-liners about how one of the two choices is better, when Matt and Trey have said what really needed to be said:

1) both candidates are worthless;

2) politicians in general are worthless, because they spend all of their time trying to look good instead of trying to be good; and

3) you shouldn't let flashy celebrities goad you into voting when deep down you know you're a complete dumbfuck.

It was alright.  The idea of P. Diddy literally trying to kill Stan was brilliant, but the rest of it felt thoroughly average and didn't really say much that other satirists haven't already reiterated to death (that both candidates suck).  "Team America" was a far better deconstruction of American politics.

It was pretty good, but as DTBM said, the message about politics is something that everyone has said already. That's ok, because it's pretty much true, but it would have been nice if they added something new to it as they did in Team America. I'm pretty sure everyone knew that both candidantes usually suck in any election, and you vote for the lesser of two evils. As a vegeterin I absolutly hate PETA, because they give us all a bad name, and I thought it was awesome when they all died.

*Edit* Also as a side note, I don't think this scene was in the episode.


My theroy is that it was lame so Matt and Trey took it out and replaced it with Jimmy's "Wait 10 seconds" scene, or extended the Dr. Cornwallace scene.

Did any one else expect Dr. Cornwallace to be Mr. Hanky's son Cornwallace?
