South Park... my favorite show of course
I started to watch it when it started on German tv in 1999. After the first one or two seasons I did not want to wait so long for new episodes, so I downloaded the English ones. Back at that time this meant crappy 14MB Real Player files which took hours to download
. Soon I realized the German version sucked. Our voices sounded like adults compared to Trey and Matt's fantastic work, the songs were terrible and they even censored things. On the other hand they wanted to be attractive to a teenage audience and so they used more swear words than the original version. A big mess. The reputation of South Park was not the best around here. The German dubbing of the newer seasons got better because they try to be true to the original version now, but I still don't watch them.
Favorite seasons / episodes: I don't prefer the old or new ones. South Park has changed in many ways, but I like the whole evolution of this show. I enjoy "Pink Eye" as much as "Trapper Keeper", "Kenny's Dead" or "the Coon". But my favorite episode of all time is "Scott Tenorman must die" because it is just perfect.
Sometimes it annoys me if there are too many celebrities in a season, but for example I really like what they did in the Britney Spears episode which was not just another attack on her but a statement about our role as a member of the audience.
Favorite characters: Kenny, Jesus, the mole.

What makes South Park so special to me is how it had a big influence in my life. I started my website http://www.planearium.de
because of it, started to learn Flash, created http://www.sp-studio.de
and my German South Park forum, organized the annual fan meetings where I met my husband, decided to work as a freelance because of the success of SP-Studio.de... it's crazy how a show I don't even work for changed my life.
