South Park: The Complete Twenty-Sixth Season Blu-ray review

Nov 05, 2023- Permalink

Paramount Home Entertainment has released South Park: The Complete Twenty-Sixth Season on Blu-ray. Like the season before it, season 26 is just 6 episodes, a fact that has disappointed fans who hoped that Parker and Stone’s big streaming deal would see them return to the longer seasons of the show’s earlier run. Still, in these six episodes, our four school chums manage to tackle everything from anti-Semitism, Kanye, Harry and Meghan, Japanese toilets, AI, work ethics and toxic masculinity.

The 1080p AVC encoded digital transfer is presented in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio. The show’s trademark 2D animation style is served up with great clarity and sharpness for the animation’s line art. Par for the course, the colour palette is full of bold primaries.

On the audio side, there’s a single English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack with subtitles available for English SDH. While a pretty front-heavy mix, the surround channels do get to do some work handling effects. The dialogue is clear and centred.

The single disc has zero special features, nor does it come with a digital code.

The South Park: The Complete Twenty-Sixth Season Blu-ray is shorter than past seasons, but if you’re a huge fan wanting a complete collection, you’ll want to get this.
