Syfy’s new present’s high quality ticks up a bit throughout the second outing.

Astrid & Lilly Save the World Season 1 Episode 2 sees our heroes face off towards one other well-executed monster.

Razor, a monster who can solely shapeshift into girls, feeds off of Astrid and Lilly’s classmates’ testosterone, turning them into piles of goo (probably pores and skin?).

Gross monster goo has appeared in each episodes thus far, and we would not thoughts if that may grow to be a recurring factor.

The design of the goo all the time does its job: it grosses us out.

The grotesqueness additionally distracts from the limited-budget results (and it really works fairly properly).

The muscular jocks bully everybody totally different from them in school, they usually make the right meal for the testosterone-hungry Razor.

Astrid and Lilly acquired bullied by these jocks and doubted if they need to conquer this monster.

Hopefully, someplace in the remainder of the season, a few of the deaths/disappearances will probably be mentioned, however as of proper now, nobody appears to care previous a slight fear.

Nobody requested what occurred to them, simply believing that some random mountain climbing incident brought on the jock to go lacking.

The one different one that understood that the latest disappearance wasn’t strange was Tate as a result of he helped the ladies retrieve their monster-vanquishing oboe.

Talking of the oboe, what’s with the oboe?

This distinctive oboe makes an ear-splitting sound that took out Razor, however we won’t assist however marvel (once more): how did Brutus have this merchandise?
