South Park has long been a cornerstone of Comedy Central's line-up - irreverent in the extreme, it pulls no punches with any group, religion, celebrity or organization. More often than not, the protagonist of the venom, ignorance, and bigotry is Eric Cartman. He has been a Christian rocker, a poster child for AIDS and Tourette Syndrome, a personal robot and more, all to further his own agenda of having more money or a gold record or just putting one over on someone else. It is all about Eric.

The Cult of Cartman - Revelations is a collection of his best (worst?) work - Cartman at his most vile. This kid has no compassion, no soul. He is no role model. You get the picture. Each episode is prefaced by a well-dressed Eric Cartman standing on a completely white background to relate the main lesson of the ensuing episode. Episodes include "Scott Tenorman Must Die," "The Death of Eric Cartman," "Cartoon Wars" 1 and 2, "Cartmanland" and eight more. Three of these episodes have never been released on DVD before (which means they're from the 12th season and they haven't yet been released with the collection for that season).

They're all wonderful episode,s and all perfect examples of why Eric Cartman should be put away; however, most of them are available on other collections, and I'm sure all of them will be soon. All that additionally recommends this two-disc set are the special short Cartman introductions and the packaging. The packaging is amazing, designed to look like a fine bible with gold leaf on the page edges and stamped gold leaf text on and inside the front cover. Within is a sticker of Cartman in a beatific, divine position, arms outstretched as though in blessing. There is also a membership card for The Eric Theodore Cartman Society, which presumably entitles the bearer to all the rights and privileges of said club until 2012, when civilization will come to an end. With that in mind, why not pick up this set?
