Life on the outside ain't what it use to be
16 March 2009 | by Siberianhusky89See all my reviews

Super Jail is probably one of the most bizarre shows I have seen on Adult Swim and is, in my opinion, one of the best in a very long time. Super Jail is about a sadistic warden who wants to perfect the "art" of incarceration. The staff of Super Jail consists of the Warden, Jared, Jail Bot, and Alice. The show usually starts off with Jack Knife (A criminal) breaking a crime and Jailbot taking Jack Knife to Super Jail, the prison for extreme criminals. Jack Knife normally escapes Super Jail in some way or another.

The Warden usually comes up with a diabolical plan for the prisoners of Super Jail or some other wacky idea to get what he wishes, he also has a thing for Alice. Jared is a recovering alcoholic who tries to take care of the Warden's budget and usually gets picked on by the Warden and others. Jail Bot is a tombstone shaped robot that goes and kills whatever causes trouble, though it seems to have been programmed with sympathy. Alice is the Jail Guard of Super Jail and does a very good job at it as well as the prisoners seem to somewhat fear her, she is masculine and is a transsexual. Other characters in the show are presented throughout the series, some more important than others such as the Twins.

The Twins usually ruin The Warden's plans in some way and cause trouble. The Warden has given them more privileges than the other members of Super Jail. They can teleport, have their own laboratory, and like the Warden, can somewhat bend reality. The episodes usually end in many of Super Jail's members dieing and much panic and chaos erupting. The show is very much random and very much amusing and the plots are somewhat simple. Many people don't like this show because the drawings are "half assed" and Adult Swim couldn't find any good artists apparently, however, if you are observant, you will notice that some of the things in the back round are very well drawn. I guess it wasn't a possibility to them that they were just using that art style because it would make the show more funny and amusing to watch. I hope the show's drawings DON'T get better because if they did, they wouldn't be as amusing as they are now. There is much blood and gore in this show along with creative deaths.

@mallninjanate Dr. Venture isn't really all that sadistic first of all, he's just very self centered and is trying to live up to his father in a way. And no, the Warden is living up to his own standards, why? Because he did the exact opposite of what his father did.

Jared doesn't care about the well being of the other jail mates, he's concerned about the budget, he's no goody two-shoes, on the last episode, he looks like a Hitler type creature and blows someone's head off and acts like he's the bad ass of Super Jail in another, sure, Venture Brothers 100% "TEAM VENTURE! LET'S GO KILL PEOPLE AND GET DRUNK!" Very goody two shoes. The robot slaughters people and is efficient at doing it. The Venture one is a screw up and helps out when it's needed. Brock and Alice is probably the closest thing to being similar and even then there's not too much similar besides the fact that they can kill people quite well, Alice isn't a thinker, she just kills people, Brock is a thinker AND he kills people, but he also takes things into circumstance.

Anyhow, this is a very interesting show and proves that there still is good T.V. out there.
