THE PLOT THUS FAR

After helping take down Godzilla, biologist Dr. Nick Tatopoulos (voice of 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.

The entire 40 episode series is available together for the first time, including 2 UNAIRED episodes!

WHAT WE THOUGHT

“Godzilla: The Complete Animated Series” was an interesting attempt to keep the Godzilla 1998 revival going. However, I did enjoy using the movie cast in connection with one of Godzilla’s offspring. It’s a crazed lizard, but one that acts like an animal doing whatever the hell it wants to do. It will fight with other monsters, but it will stop to make a nest out of whatever city it is crashing in. There’s not really a ton that anyone can do to stop it.

There’s something about the Emmerich film that taints this otherwise strong show. You get the French shoe-horned into the movie alongside the attempts at breathing life into the one-dimensional humans. Still, there’s something about nostalgia and looking back at that late 90s flavor. It almost makes you wistful for a time when Godzilla could be turned into a Q: The Winged Serpent remake without anyone batting an eye. Larry Cohen should’ve been pissed.

The DVD comes with no special features. But, you do get to see two episodes that were too hot for FOX Kids to air. The A/V Quality is on par with most animated series of the era. But, that’s not like it was something that would blow out your home theater. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to fans.
