      An alien bearing a great resemblance to Roy breeched “the security of Technology Incorporated Laboratories and absconded with a container of dangerous experimental energy” (or anti-matter). Pasquale Mendoza alerts Jim and Roy to these events when he comes knocking, assuming that it was Roy who was responsible for the theft… but soon Jim and Roy spot another man with an unusually large cranium – which contains Roy’s baby brother, Mark. Mark is supposed to deliver the anti-matter to a race of nasty, green, humanistic aliens who need the substance for fuel, but a botched transaction on the moon leaves Roy as a hostage to the nasty aliens.moreless

Jim, Roy, Ivan, Ray and Dr. Axel head out on a fishing trip to find the legendary giant blue fish. Shortly after their departure on the water, the gas tank gets punctured and the boat explodes, leaving them stranded on a remote island.

      Jim, Roy and the whole gang appear as guests on Pasquale Mendosa's daytime talk show. We've got reunions, confrontations, and plenty of surprises, today on Pasquale!
    • The Pasquale Mendosa Show/The Rise and Fall of Jim/Inside The Head
      Jim and his friends go on "The Pasquale Mendosa Show" ("The Head"'s take on "Geraldo") to tell the world about the alien invasion that almost was... and the fight continues when Gork shows up in the audience. Meanwhile, FBI agent Marshall proposes to Smithy -- but Smithy reveals a secret of his own. This is mainly a clip show, recapping the events that transpired in the first season

      In "The Rise and Fall of Jim," while playing basketball with Roy, Jim sees a baby that's about to be hit by a car so he rushes to save it -- resulting in press coverage for his heroic deed that's seen by a sinister agent. So when Jim appears at open mic night at a local bar, the agent arrives with contract in hand and turns Jim into an overnight celebrity. Jim gets a big head (so to speak), so Roy peruses the contract and discovers Jim has actually sold his soul to the devil. Madelyn and Roy make a deal with the prince of darkness -- if they can beat an American Gladiators-style contest in Hell, Jim can keep his soul; if they lose, the devil gets their souls too.

      "Inside The Head" is a behind the scenes look at the making of the show with the creators and crew.moreless
