I really enjoy watching new shows that I have never seen before.  There’s nothing like sitting down with a fresh cup of coffee and popping a brand new show into my DVD/Blu-ray player, sitting back and getting lost into it.

This past weekend, I got the opportunity to watch a review copy of Mill Creek Entertainment’s “Godzilla: The Series” on DVD. 

“Godzilla: The Series” first aired in 1998 as a follow up to the “Godzilla” remake that was released in the theaters.

I really liked “Godzilla: The Series” story and thought it was great, because it continues right where the film left off.  The scientists have just killed Godzilla and a scientist by the name of Nick Tatopoulos discovers an egg that was laid by Godzilla and a new dinosaur hatches.  He calls the dinosaur “Zilla” and it bonds with Nick. Zilla eventually grows up and soon strange monsters start appearing in New York and around the world.  Now Zilla must try and save the world from all of the monsters because he is the only one that is strong enough to stop them.  Nick is also very curious about what is causing all of the new monsters to appear so his team of scientists called “H.E.A.T. (Humanitarian Environmental Analysis Team)” go out trying to find the answers.

I really thought “Godzilla: The Series” was very exciting and very well written.  I also thought the animation looked fabulous.  It was really fun watching Zilla fight all of the monsters and creatures and to learn why all of the monsters were appearing on Earth.

“Godzilla: The Series” is the complete animated series and contains all 40 episodes on four DVDs.  The thing that really makes “Godzilla: The Series” really special is that it contains two episodes (“Ballad of Gens Du Marias” and “Tourist Trap”) that have never aired before.

I really enjoyed Mill Creek Entertainment’s “Godzilla: The Series” a lot.  I thought the story was very exciting and full of action.  There were tons of awesome fights between Zilla and other huge creatures.  It’s great that all forty episodes are available in one DVD set.

If you are a fan of Godzilla and are looking for a fun and exciting animated show to watch, then I would highly recommend that you check out “Godzilla: The Series.”
