Don't! Get! Eliminated!
The eternal struggle between TV and Movies comes to a fever pitch as we pit Godzilla against Ultraman. After the runaway success of Godzilla, there were quite a few monster suits left around Tokyo and the Tokyo Broadcasting Company sought them out, along with actors and crew who worked on the Godzilla films. The goal: produce a weekly "Godzilla", half an hour long, to be on TV.
Ultraman was born out of Ultra-Q, an "Outer Limits" style kaiju show that was technically the first "Ultra" project. Ultraman gave the series a massive hero, and it gave the old Godzilla monsters a second job outside the films.
So here we are...what camp are you in? Ultraman or Godzilla? TV or Movies? Which had more impact on your life? Let us know!
