On this week's Media Obscura, the boyz check out 1994's disappointing sequel, Cyborg Boy II.

Team Obscura (with special guest Jackson) come together to revisit the Lawnmower Man franchise, inspired by the Stephen King story, and find a convoluted and bloated story about cyberspace, virtual reality, and the internet...

Released in 1993, Cyborg Cop follows Jack Ryan on a mission to find out what happened to his DEA agent brother on a mission in the Caribbean. Along the way, he fights cyborgs and cops, which only sorta explains why this movie is called Cyborg Cop.
