Characters: who don't I love? There is Jackknife, the inmate who is always caught and dragged back to jail at the beginning of each episode. Jailbot and Alice run herd on the inmates. The Warden is a goofier, crazier version of Willy Wonka. But, I suppose my very favorite characters are the ones I refer to as the "Techno Twins." They take the warden's already poor ideas and kick them up a notch (playing the warden's dream organ until everyone is insane, setting Spanish flies free inside the female/male inmate dance, creating a superclone for the battle arena, to name a few).
When compared to the other bloody, gruesome cartoons Cartoon Network airs on Adult Swim, Superjail beats them hands-down in body count. When I catch it, I almost always say, "Ooh, Superjail. I wonder how everyone will die tonight?" For a twisted, screwy person like me, it's the perfect bookend to a day.
