Before I launch into what's generally going to be an unqualified positive review of the second season of Adult Swim's penal system-set animated comedy, I'll get one complaint out of the way: it's lost a little bit of color between this and the first season since the team at Titmouse (Metalocalypse) took over the animation chores.

For more about the DVD (spoiler: buy it, the show is still really very funny), read on after the jump.

If you can't wait for the DC Nationshorts "Thunder and Lightning" and "Super Best Friends Forever," take a look at these behind-the-scenes interviews with creators Lynell Forestall and Lauren Faust.

Forestall describes his original pitch for "Thunder and Lightning" as being like a "1970s blaxploitation movie trailer," but the project morphed into a story about DC Comics hero Black Lightning juggling his superhero career and raising his two daughters.
