All through the galaxy, Lobo is a feared bounty hunter who doesn't take any crap from anybody. He loves to fight, drink, smoke, bag chicks, blech, blow stuff up, fight, blow people up, fight, and fight. When he has a job, or even when he doesn't, nothing stands in his way. He'll kill anything in sight to get his prize. Lobo even blew up his home planet. He also has a deep attachment to his customized SpazFrag 666. If you touch it, you might as well consider yourself dead. Lobo also has a healing factor. It makes him nearly impossible to kill, but really easy to piss off!
Sunny Jim tells Darlene, the Al's Dinner waitress, that he and Lobo had made a bet on who will 'nail' her first. He notes that Lobo carved up his face "real bad" (in the shape of a smiley face, to be exact) so that he would lose the bet. Sunny Jim kid-naps her, even with Lobo coming in the end to try and stop 'em.
Lobo captures Sunny Jim and beats the crap out of him, turning him into a compact disk. Darleen gets back at Lobo, when he starts to follow through on the bet over Sunny Jim. She even steals his bike. The only thing that saved this episode, in my opinion, was the golf game you could choose to play, with Lobo's severed head and arm, to help Lobo catch Sunny Jim. The best part of it, is the announcer. I think there were other ways they could have worked this episode.Watch Now:Amazon
Lobo's first breakout attempt in this episode was pretty clever, but the rest of his efforts got annoying. The jail cells interlude was added a neat little extra dimension to an otherwise mundane episode. The action was boring and the dialogue wasn't clever or cool at all.
The humor in this episode worked really well for a couple reasons: First, there's the usual element of the random violence and general kickassness that makes Lobo damn cool. From Lobo ripping out the dude's skeleton to Lobo's hairy ass having a band-aid on it, Lobo was in his element throughout the episode. Fragging those politician dudes one by one? Nice touch! Secondly, the neat thing about this episode is that the narration sounds eerilie similar to what an authentic candidate endorsement might be like in modern politics. Amazingly, the episode actually conveys a compelling, welcome, and hilarious message about campaigns and the way we view them: as entertainment. Lobo's being a bastard as always, but the campaign still manages to twist him into seeming like some heroic figure, which Lobo himself points at the end. The ep has the usual Lobo elements, but is unique in that the contrast between what is being said and the reality of the situation is what makes it funny.Watch Now:Amazon
This episode was a pretty solid setup: Basically, Lobo'll bust out this dude's brother from jail in exchange for some Cubans. And this jail is supposed to be really strict and secure and stuff. Sounds pretty simplistic, but hey, that leaves a lot of room for fun. Fun like a dog thingy pissing on a bike, fart contest, and a bunch of prison guards getting blown the hell up.
Nice setup. Killing the band was an annoying diversion, especially when they just died again in the fight thirty seconds later. Lobo's dilemma was pretty good in terms of creating a scenario that they could have fun with: He's gotta stop paying his bills with credit and put up some hard cash before he gets his bike back, so he tries to bring the bounty on some guy. The fight was pretty decent, especially the decapitated arm flippin the bird all on its own... how cute! Flying space penguins were definitely the highlight of this one.
Darlene and Sunny Jim stop for a bathroom break in the wrong place. The story gets even stranger when they come across an alien race called the MBA. They realize who Sunny Jim is, and try to tell Lobo where he's at, hoping to get some money. Instead, they all get fragged.
The "again?" line was kinda funny. Guess that kinda stuff happens in intergalactic prison, too. The side-animation was kind of cute, but that doesn't really make up for how damn short this episode was. Had it been a bit longer, it probably could have been better but virtually nothing happened, making it a pretty weak story.
This one has nearly no plot or story to it at all. However, it's got tons of action. We pick up right where we left off in the last episode, Pit Stop, with Lobo on a mega killing rampage against the MBA. The music they choose was really... odd, but humorous at the same time. Darleen is still playing the damsel in distress, hoping that Lobo will save her from Sunny Jim. At the end she finds out what Lobo is really like.
A humorous end to the 'Bustin' Out of Oblivion' storyline, Lobo frags, fights, and even gets vomited on in this episode. After finally breaking his bounty of of jail, and fraggin' his bounties friend in the process, Lobo goes back only for the two to hug and end each others life--cutting off his valuable supply of Cuban cigars. Lobo shrugs it off and puffs on the one that was still in his hirer's fingers---literally.Watch Now:Amazon
This episode got off to a great start! Kickass music, and the "Sales Clerk Wanted" was a great/clever gag. Neat way of introducing worm dude, and the interactive bathrooms thing was mildly amusing. Once again, the ep ends with a bang right when the audience figures out that the worm thingamajigger ate the bounty. The ep felt kind of short, but it was decently entertaining so that's fairly inconsequential.
Clever interaction between Lobo and the tapeworm thing, particularly Lobo calling it "Snake-Bitch" and the worm randomly eating his entire arm. However, "My Johnson with herpes" took the cake for great one-liner. The subsequent fight was pretty tight: great music, and Lobo using that shopping cart to kick the dude and get back on his legs has gotta be one of the coolest moves and most creative uses of powers ever.Watch Now:Amazon
Damn, Lobo just *wailed* on this guy to make him barf up the dude! That was so cool! One of the reasons why Lobo has an appeal is because he does whatever the hell he wants: That was a great way to can the annoying penguins. And the ending? Definitely fantasy appeal.
