Ep. 19 – “Funk OUT!” OR “The Offal Truth”

It’s HGH Season Two’s senses-shattering, diplomacy-and-pseudoscience-packed, king-sized penultimate episode!

When Cyrus comes down with crystal poisoning, it’s up to Mike and Oppenheimer to get his legs back from Crystallos — but can our heroes survive another kerfuffle and stay alive long enough to make peace between the Crystallosians and Meatlanteans? And where is Commander Funk? (Science fiction/Comedy. 57 minutes)
