If you've been reading the episode guide for the past two years then you know I am a fan of this show, even if some of the
monsters are a tad baggy and strange. But this show has good characters, fantastic model effects and the right amount of
action. Of course some episodes are better then others but that's expected in a TV show, 9 STARS.
Ultraman has been and always will be one of my favorite shows, I have found memories growing up with it on channel 52 and
seeing it again only reminds me of how great it truly is. 10 STARS.
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):
+ MONSTERS (Some baggy but most cool.)
+ CHARACTERS (Very cool characters.)
+ MODELS (Always good.)
+ ACTION (Plenty of action to go around.)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
- BAGGY (Some of the costumes were baggy.)
- FAN BASED (If you aren't big on giant monsters then this isn't for you.)
