    Now that it is apparent that AOL/Time-Warner will not be releasing the South Park episodes in order (and have opted for the idiotic "best of" method) in Region 1, I have decided to look elsewhere. Season sets seem to be the way to go, and I have recently discovered that there are both PAL and...
