Product Description

Superjail: Season One

"Superjail is the largest and most brutal prison in the world. Built in an active volcano, this complex routinely has riots and murders, though nobody is ever able to escape. The Warden, who is in charge of the prison, has gone insane over the years and has decided to make his prison unlike any other in the world. Superjail! will focus on the crazy antics that occur inside the prison. "

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!!!

The cellophane wrapping is melted down onto the spine of the case.
The case is actually white (that's where the surprise was which I liked).
The pilot episode is really episode 1 that you've seen on TV, and it's in standard resolution instead of widescreen like all the other episodes on the DVD (very disappointing).
There are little hiccups in the voice over work due to it being a mexican DVD.

$10 is a more reasonable price for a DVD that is supposed to be $10
