China, IL – meaning "China, Illinois" – is an animated television series for the cable network Adult Swim. The series takes place at the "Worst College in America", located at the edge of town. The school's poor reputation is celebrated by the school's uncaring faculty and staff, constantly shown drinking while teaching and/or trying to avoid teaching altogether. Steve and Frank Smith are twin professors at the college, teaching different subjects with limited success, while Professor Cakes is the father of undergraduate Mark "Baby" Cakes, who spends his time at college with the school staff. Pony is the teacher's aide at the school, and the most rational of the staff, but still willing to go along with the staff's insane plots to avoid working.

If you like dark and witty humor that's littered with sexual innuendos, this show is a great pick! There are tons of recurring jokes and themes in each episode and the writing is great! I love the way the show pokes fun at the bureaucratic structure of academic institutions and the narcissistic nature of people in general (like when everyone started having sex with the robot clones of themselves). China, IL can be a bit violent and grotesque at times, but it sort of just adds to the uniqueness of the show.
