Housed on a remote island, in a volcano within a volcano - the location of animated-horror comedy, SUPERJAIL! is part madhouse, part ultra-violent penitentiary. Expect gratuitous disembowelment, psychedelic sadism, and robot-related carnage. Observe from a safe distance only. Wash eyes out thoroughly after viewing.

The show revolves around a indescribably large prison, run by an exuberant Warden who is half Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka and half insane. The supporting characters include a trans-gender prison guard Alice, a tightly wound accountant Jared, a mass murdering robot Killbot, and a variety of uncouth inmates who take the stereotype criminal mind to an extreme by murdering each other at the drop of a hat. Each episode is roughly 10 minutes long and punctuated by a spectacular riot scene of some kind. The hallmark of the series is excessive violence and dark humour, but the show will often take a psychedelic turn either explicitly (episode Don't Be a Negaton), or by gently bending the laws of space and time in each episode with a pair of unexplained characters called "the Twins" who act as a foil to the Warden's plans.
Where the show really stands out is the animation (all done using flash), which is often so complex and imaginative that you can't possibly appreciate it all in one sitting, every scene is filled with background jokes or detail that put shows with larger budgets to shame. The fact that the title sequence in each episode is unique typifies the attention that goes into every 10 minutes. To a certain extent this focus makes the plotting or dialogue seem weak in some instances, but that is a minor negative compared with the rest of the show. It's also hilarious, but that goes without saying.
Each episode is roughly about 11 minutes long and each usually ends in a complete bloodbath, so if you're remotely squeamish you'll want to give this a miss. If you don't mind the ultra-violence and high gore levels then Superjail! is a highly imaginative and enjoyable experience.
