If The Simpsons created a space for animated series that engage in edgy, cultural commentary — and it unquestionably did — then South Park hacked away at the boundaries of that space with an ax. Cruder and more up-to-the-minute in its satire than The Simpsons, but often just as smart, South Park isn’t consistently great. But its willingness to go to just about any “there” you can come up with is often brave, and, also, sometimes a little gross. (No offense, Mr. Hankey.) 20+ seasons, 100+ hours*.
