It's sad that the show only ran for one episode
24 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Amazing Screw-On Head, is based on a one-issue comic book from Mike Mignola (Creator of, Hellboy). After watching this, I was really surprised how great it was.

The story is about a robot head with the ability to control any robot body.

What make's this really great is the animation and the voice acting. The animation has a nice comic-book feel and the cast with Paul Giamatti as the title character and David Hyde Pierce as the evil Emperor Zombie was great.

But sadly, this was a T.V. Pilot and the reason why the show didn't continue is because the Sci-Fi channel didn't want to continue the series.

But even though it's twenty-two minutes long, it's still worth your time.

If only the show continued.
