Ultraman is still as much fun as I remember

Ultraman is awesome! The funky theme, the goofy dialog, the not-so-special effects? This 1966 television masterpiece is every bit as fantastic as my childhood memories recall.

Monsters are always attacking Earth! Lucky we've got the Special Science Search Patrol to fight them off! Aided by Ultraman, a weird looking alien who uses exaggerated kung-fu movements to defeat evil, rubber suited monsters, the UN will always prevail!

Ultraman was really one of my favorite shows as a kid, and evidently he still has a strong following in Japan. Watching this hilarious update on Youtube led me to order season 1. It holds up and is really a lot of fun to watch.

Episode 1 is above, and you can get the first season via DVD on Amazon for $5.
