Episode Title: They Shoot Omega Pets, Don’t They?
Original Airdate: 10-8-15
I wouldn’t say this show is out to teach us a lesson like most animated shows, but that doesn’t mean you can’t learn something from it. This episode could teach you to keep in contact with the people who are important to you because time passes quickly. Or you could learn about the difficulties that can accompany pet ownership. This episode contains many references to movies starting with the title and hitting movies of all kinds like: Aliens, Gremlins, Seabiscuit, Ratatouille, and Babe. This episode is full of fun and nostalgic references, and continues the high quality of the pilot episode.
The second episode starts with a flash back to World War II. We are introduced to a new hero, Omega Ted, and an unnamed grunt who are on a mission in a secret Nazi breeding chamber. They are out to stop a plot to make Nazi-insect hybrids, but arrive too late, must battle Frau Mantiss, and are rescued by a young Titanium Rex. It is during this battle we learn that Rex is not a super powered human, he is of an alien species called Subtopian. The lab is destroyed but because of her sex appeal and Rex’s weakness, Frau Mantiss is able to escape. This will not be the last time we see Rex’s libido get him in a tough spot as we learn he is sleeping with American Ranger’s wife Gloria.
The story jumps to modern time where we learn that Omega Ted has been murdered in his Antartic home. He has named Rex in his will to receive his mini horse, dog, and squirrel: the Omega Pets.
Rex wants no part of the animals but his team members convince him to let them adopt the animals. Brad with visions of a battle steed claims the mini horse (Ganky), Jewbot wants to care for man’s best friend (Chet), and Cooch wants to be responsible for the squirrel (Buster Nut). Black Saturn shows up late and like a typical spoiled child is infuriated that someone has something he doesn’t, and sets off to find his own super pet.
While the others are busy with the animals Ranger tags along with Rex as he tries to avenge the death of his old friend. During their mission Ranger finally vents his frustration at being left in a time tunnel for 70 years and having no one, including Rex, come look for him. Inside the Omega fortress in the Antarctic Rex will discover the shocking truth behind the death of Omega Ted.
While Rex and Ranger are gone the team is forced to fight Iron Brains, the most poorly designed supervillain ever. A large robot with glass encased brains as fists. Every attack is like a head-butt; it will hurt Iron Brains just as much if not more than those he is attacking. The team has to fight him while dealing with multiple distractions, an unruly pet, fatigue and an abusive boyfriend. Run to your computer, phone, Xbox or other internet connected device to find out if the team can survive without Rex and who’s really behind the demise of Omega Ted on the next episode of SuperMansion.
