Storyline

Roughly-drawn but well-written cult cartoon about alien invasion. Small aliens on Earth, needing human receptacles, expand their hosts' craniums to ludicrous dimensions to use as living quarters. One such alien inhabits an average bloke's head during a mugging, giving him special powers to fight off his attackers. He explains that he's on the trail of an enemy from his planet, who's looking to take over the world. Not believed by anyone, and as a stand-out with his huge head, he teams up with a group of other freaks to save the world. They have to battle not just the alien, but the FBI agents also on the trail - and things aren't helped by his girlfriend, whose head is taken over too. Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

Crazy, odd fun
9 July 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I actually liked this show when it was on MTV (it atctually made MTV watchable again) because it is weird yet funny and cool. Only the first season though (the first 13 episodes that were later made into a video) is watchable. In which a regular guy named Jim starts to get very odd- his head is very very large and is holding an alien named Roy (which is short for some jubberish) who has come to Earth to stop another alien named Gork from destroying the world. Very odd, but usually funny in a crude way, especially when looking at the other freaks on the show (a guy with 5 ft. arms, one with a mouth in his stomach, another with a blade stuck in his head, another that looks like a rat, one woman with a dark secret with a tale and a guy who has a fishbowl in his mouth). A+
