I remember when this used to air on t.v., it was always on way too early in the morning and I rarely got to see it. All I had of this show was a VHS copy of one of the episodes. Now I got two DVD's, but unfortunately there is only three episodes on each disc, for a total of 6 out of 39, wow that sucks. I can't even find any other episodes, did they just release the 3 DVD's? where's the rest of the seasons. They should be boxed together and re-released on Blu-ray, but that's not likely to happen any time soon.
This was a great idea for an animated series, continuing the story of the surviving Godzilla and pitting him against other monsters. The monsters aren't as grand as the Toho one's, but that doesn't matter much, I'm just glad to see Zilla fighting other monsters. There is even a Mecha-Godzilla, which was made from the original Godzilla, funny how that happened later in the millennium series with Kiryu. There is even a three part episode that is a remake of Destroy all monsters, so we get some references to the original Japeneese Godzilla films. Heck we even see the American Godzilla in Tokyo.
The animation looks fantastic, I wish it was still done like this, now-a-days it's all done with CGI, which looks like crap, much like most of the animated programming lately. This show has one of the greatest, if not the greatest opening credits for any t.v. show in history.
The characters are okay, nothing special. I do find nick's voice to feel out of place with the other voice actors, he sounds so stock, if you know what I'm talking about....generic is what I mean. I like the N.I.G.E.L. robot, he's cool, and he is also voiced by Tom Kenny, that I didn't know.
I think this show needs to be discovered by more people, it is actually pretty good. Even with me being older now, I still find this show very entertaining. I would like to know James Rolfe's opinion on this series, he wasn't too fond of the movie, but this offers more than the movie did, at least in terms of monsters.
I recommend this, although I am disappointed in the lack of episodes on DVD, it's still worth checking out.
