Godzilla – The Complete Animated Series: DVD Review












After helping take down Godzilla, biologist Dr. Nick Tatopoulos (Ian Ziering) stumbles upon his hatchling, who bonds with the scientist as a parental figure. Recruiting his own environmentally-directed research outfit HEAT (Humanitarian Environmental Analysis Team) Nick sets out to study not only this new generation, but also to investigate the increasing reports of monsters of all types and other environmental anomalies menacing the Earth. Each exciting episode is a pulse-pounding monster-hunt driven by Nick s team accompanied by their 300-foot giant reptile as they travel the globe defending humankind against mutant threats.

Right away I have to say that I remember watching this when I was younger and actually digging it a bit more than the actual movie that it was based on. The series’ setting takes place right after the events of the film and elaborates on it with an extended adventure oriented story. It was a fun series that covered LOTS of different monsters but the only thing that I was disappointed about was the fact that there wasn’t an inclusion of any classic Godzilla foes with the slight exception of Cyber Godzilla which is obviously is a direct version of Mecha-Godzilla. This four disc set contains 40 episodes that cover Season 1 and 2 including 2 episodes that were unaired which I thought was pretty cool. In total you’re looking at 14 hours of a fun, family friendly Godzilla that delivers on what the spirit of what the big green lizard is and that’s just big monster fights with some good action for an animated show. I really think this show could’ve gone passed the two seasons that it had but I’m sure unforeseen circumstances squashed that idea. If you’re a Godzilla fan then you can easily get into this show even if you weren’t a fan of the film and the kids will definitely love it and for the price you really can’t beat it.

Godzilla: The Complete Animated Series is available April 29th on DVD from Mill Creek Entertainment
