WOW!
They just made one DVD customer VERY happy.
I'm buy all seasons

Since they are doing season sets, maybe a nice extra would be the funny Matt Stone Trey Parker intros

I am extremely happy for South Park fans (I am not one of them). It's nice to see Warner releasing even more TV product in Season Box Sets... hopefully Babylon 5 is not far behind.

This is indeed rockin' good news. However, I have one concern. Those of us who have the original 6 DVD volumes (before the "best-of" crap started coming out) have all of Season 1 but only part of Season 2 - there were still 6 episodes of Season 2 they had not yet gotten to. If Warner really wants to get back fan support they should release those 6 eps as a "Volume 7" designed to fit with the previous releases. Then we can pick up on the season sets with Season 3. Of course, Seasons 1 & 2 should be released as sets for new buyers.
OK, I know there's no way this will happen. The previous release owners will probably be forgotten...
Guess I'd better get my Volumes 1-6 up on EBay before the flood starts!

Spirit of Christmas does belong on Season 1. Since these are [rant]not meant for children[/rant] this should not be a problem.

I'm thrilled that Warner Brothers/Comedy Central has come around. I'll buy Season 1 to support the decision and to have a consistant set. Even if I already have access to discs 1-6, I don't mind having the episodes again.

And I just bought seasons 1-4 from R4 a couple months ago! Maybe they'll put some extras on there to justify an R1 purchase. If the price is right, I might repurchase them anyway to show my gratitude to WB for finally seeing the light.

This is great news. Finally, one of my favorite series (besides the old stuff) is coming out on DVD, in season order.

A Question regarding other 'Best Of' sets: Along the same time as the second Christmas compilation was released, there was to be a "Timmy!" comp as well. Was this ever released? Or is this what the "Insults to Injuries" set has become? I ask because I've receved a LOT of blank stares around town when I've asked for it (Sorry, I really like Timmy).

GREAT news! I probably won't buy season one again (unless the set has new extras) but I'm definitely on board for season two forward.
Now if only we could get a SE of Bigger, Longer and Uncut....
