Filmed during or at the end of the series’ third season, South Park, (BL&U) heralded the beginning of a new, more ambitious era for the TV show. The film opened up the scope for grander and even more satirical storylines which I believe have contributed the series’ success.
The second musical number, “Uncle Fucka” is in my opinion, one of the best songs to feature in a musical, and though with simple and explicit lyrics, what might at first seem crass becomes an hilarious commentary of the vulgarity of modern cinema, and just a bloody funny sequence.
Though I do believe that it has become a little dated over the past ten years, it is still a must see and a cracking example of a well placed TV to Movie to TV film. After a fair few failures such as The X-Files, this was and is a welcome change.
