There's been a deluge of great television comedy recently (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia comes to mind) and I've got my hopes up for Adult Swim's new Superjail. I've only seen the clip at their site so far, but if the irreverent humor and ornate, psychedelic animation are any indication of what's to come, this show will be a hit with fans of Wonder Showzen and Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! This clip includes a bizarre whirlwind of a narrative in under two minutes, all without the use of dialogue. The show is directed by Christy from Cheeseburger and the eye-boggling animation comes courtesy of the folks at Augenblick Studios, who are also responsible for animating some of the best Wonder Showzen sketches.
