Mmmmmmmmmm...that girl with the guitar in the opening theme reminds me of Haruko from FLCL...
I wonder...if Heroman-isk giant robots pop out of the heads of whoever get hit with said girls guitar, then it'd be a full blown FLCL reference.
Oh by the way (warning the following is a spoiler)
I bet 42 Internets that the hand that takes that seedpod thingie is Nicks and he's alive! (Well they "Never found the body")
Oh wow! Look at that. Might as well start an Epileptic Tree Orchard here.
For those of you who don't know, an "epileptic tree" is a term for wild, off-the-wall theories. Mostly made by fans (like us). Source: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EpilepticTrees
And before anyone else posts this (because otherwise, I think A LOT of people would do so), not that I really believe this one...
"Joey is a 'transboy'!" (or he's a post-operative transsexual man) Then again, that epileptic tree really would explain both 'Word of God' saying he's a boy and 'Viewer Gender Confusion' at the same time.
So, what are YOUR epileptic trees about this series?
Edit: So I don't clog up the thread up with more of my own epileptic trees, instead I'm going to put them in the following section of this post below...
Heroman is a robot possessed by the ghost of Joey's father.
Dr. Minami's creating a "Villianman" for Season 2.
Re:Edit: And now I'm also adding if a poster knew it or if the Epileptic Tree was Joshed...(this is only my own observations; you can ignore the following if you wish)
Shimoko #1 - Joshed...for Season 1. Still 'may' happen in Season 2.
Shimoko #2: Joshed - Apparently the pod was never in Nicks' possession.
Greylurker #1: Joshed - Dang, they were just used as glorified energy pills.
Greylurker #1.5 (it's related to the one above): Double-dang! The Spheres DON'T turn into Skurgg bases. What a waste of a good plot! Even if it's just for filler! (All your base are belong to Kogorr) (And yes, I did make a variant of the meme "All your base are belong to us", it's an endangered meme you know)
Greylurker #2: Unless Nick brings back the Skrugg, not likely. But there's still hope.
And just in case you read the above, no, I don't take myself seriously all the time.

Had a brief thought during episode 9 that Minami wasn't human (no reason, he just looks that weird) and is another alien out to conquer the planet.
Also that Kogorr was right about Joey not being a normal human in a literal sense; he's some sort of...mutant/alien/unusual thing. Though for 'serious' theories his ability to get knocked down so much and not die, go so fast, etc, could be explained in-universe by his connection to Heroman.
Because Kogorr's eyes opened just before the base blew up, I think he's not dead and possibly the pod thing at the end of the episode belonged to him.
I expect Will to come back at some point. Nick would be interesting considering he'd gone a bit power mad. Seeing some other results of Denton's friendly invitation would be fun.
My theory on the Spheres
I think they are Troop Transports.
I think the things are full of Skrugg Larva just waiting to hatch.
The Skrugg we have seen so far are worker Caste bugs, and the Spheres are full of Warrior Caste; Bigger meaner and more powerful than ever.
Judging from the new opening I think each Sphere opens up, reshapes themselves into new Skrugg Bases, giving them an Army and Base on every Major continent
And somewhere in all this there has to be a Sexy Skrugg Queen.
A) they're insects and something has to be laying the eggs
B) every shy hero boy has to go up against a Fem-fetal alien queen
or maybe Lina gets turned into the Skrugg Queen
