Product Description

Superjail: Season One

Amazon.com

Even the rainbows bleed in this arresting animated series that combines an anarchic Looney Tunes sensibility with the psychedelic dream/nightmare-scapes of Yellow Submarine. Superjail! makes Oz look like Little House on the Prairie. It is overseen by the resplendent-in-purple Warden (voiced by David Wain from The State), who is a deranged cross between Willy Wonka and the chief Blue Meanie. His methods are, to say the least, unorthodox (bunny suits for all inmates in one episode). Recurring characters include Jared, the Warden's skyscraper-foreheaded accountant; the muscular and masculine guard Alice; and the elusive teleporting Twins, who sport vaguely European accents as they gleefully wreak havoc around the jail. And then there's Jackknife, a vicious criminal whose violent arrests and escapes frame most of the episodes. Superjail! is like a vintage Mad magazine panel run amok, with deliriously brutal and comic bits of business that bear repeat viewings. Just as The Simpsons begins each episode with a unique blackboard gag, so does this series kick off with Jackknife being transported over remote and bizarre terrains en route to Superjail! And you know how they used to kill Kenny in each episode of South Park? Kenny got off easy. Each near 11-minute Superjail! episode features a sequence of escalating and unprintable carnage. DVD extras include a music video for the series' catchy theme song, "I'm Coming Home"; the pilot episode; and animatics for several episodes. Superjail! is not for the squeamish, but for those who can do the hard time, it's thoroughly mind- and eye-blowing. --Donald Liebenson

2.0 out of 5 stars This is a rating/review of the DVD -not the show... February 27, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
SuperJail is by far one of the greatest pieces of animation to hit TV in the last ten years.
Clearly it's not for younger viewers as it was developed for the AdultSwim programming block on Cartoon Network.
As I mentioned before this is not a review of the Show, but of AdiultSwim's DVD product.

While the show is great in and of itself, this DVD is not.

Once again Adultswim is releasing a DVD with an "UNCENSORED" sticker on the package (Like they did with the Metyalocalypse DVDs) when this content is still COMPLETELY CENSORED as it was on the original Cablecasts and "air dates".
This is ridiculous.
I bought this DVD to see this amazing show without the silly BLACK BARS over images and without loud BEEPS over language.
Instead only the animatics, -the auxiliary extra content- is free of censor beeps etc.
I hope Adultswim smartens up and eventually releases these shows uncut, uncensored as they are currently advertising -falsely.
I doubt I'll be buying more Adultswim DVDs outside of the Venture Bros. releases (which actually are UNCENSORED as advertised)
I received this DVD in the mail on Thursday, and I just sold it this morning.

I'm waiting for the real uncensored version if it ever comes out.
-SJ

3.0 out of 5 stars SuperCensored! March 5, 2010
By C. Keep
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What irritates me the most about this DVD is the "Uncensored warning" on the cover. Again this is only for the special features, NOT for the 10 episodes!!! This seems to be a trend with Adult Swim items. Just like Metalocalypes and Venture Brothers, this dvd is full of bleeps! What is the point of that? The main reason I collect these is to avoid the censorship and to enjoy them as they are meant to be viewed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why are these cartoons edited/censored? March 29, 2010
By DW
Format:DVD
Superjail! is a creatively gruesome cartoon suitable for the late night slot it was in on cable. Due to it's extreme nature it was never meant for anyone under 17. They should have kept the swears and sex (the censors have no problem with the ultra-violence however) and slapped an R or NC-17 rating on it. The censor beep is offensive to me. It shouldn't be on a DVD you buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A violent modern-day classic of surrealism August 26, 2010
By Modemac
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been asked, "Why do you like this show?" "Superjail!" is incredibly fast-paced; it's packed with wall-to-wall gore and violence of the type only seen on Adult Swim (or in anime); and the viewer only understands what's going on after two or three repeat viewings of any episode. Yet I can't stop watching it.

How to describe it? Every episode begins with the latest adventure of Jackknife, the only inmate ever to escape Superjail, which he does at the end of each and every episode. Meanwhile, at the beginning of every episode, Jackknife is caught by the Jailbot in the middle of doing something disgusting, obscene, and inhuman, and the Jailbot flies him back to Superjail through a psychedelic landscape, in a sequence that is different with each episode. (No animated sequence ever repeats itself on this show!) Superjail is in an impossible location, a gigantic fortress within a volcano, within an even bigger volcano. This is the type of idea you'd expect to see in drawings from the imagination of a seven-year-old child...and in fact, the entire design of the animation, right down to the hand-drawn "Superjail!" logo, has that aspect. It's as if the series creators took a hundred years' worth of graffiti and doodles from the back pages of bored elementary school students' textbooks, and brought them to absurd, sadistic life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant writing February 18, 2010
Format:DVD
First of all, this is not a show for children and this is not a show for adults. This is a show for people with an acquired taste. Happy Tree Friends + Willy Wonka + Chaotic art style. If those things are up your alley then you will absolutely fall in LOVE with Superjail!. Each episode is around 15 minutes in length, but I certainly consider it to be one of the most well-written, well-put together, well thought-out shows to ever be played on Adult Swim. The violence and gore play out like an instrumental score, flowing graceful in a freakishly poetic way. The characters are the most endearing that I have seen on Adult Swim in YEARS. They have depth and are multi-faceted, voiced wonderfully, and hilarious. If one looks past the outer layer of obvious gore, one will appreciate how beautifully made this show is. Definitely hoping for Season 2!!!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Show, Terrible DVD February 24, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First off, I love Superjail! and was really excited for the season one DVD to come out. It does contain all the episodes from the first season and.....that's really it. No commentary or any other extras to speak of other than a music video, the pilot, and animatics. Boring.
Also: while it says that it is "Uncensored" I have found that it is, in all actuality, still censored. There are still *bleeps* when people swear and still boxes for nudity.
So not only are you getting false advertising, but an absolutely bare bones ordeal of a DVD.
Its a shame too, because they could have done something great with the DVD. Maybe the next one will be better.
