  1. oh man went to blockbuster to rent Tekkon Kinkreet after the podcast and that movie failed on so many levels, maybe i’ll mock up a hate mail. Still enjoy the show though!

  2. I believe you may be incorrect in your Godzilla reference.
    Godzilla 2000 was a guy in a Grey Suit. A homage to the 50’s Godzilla. Everyone screaming Godzilla with the traditional English language lag from movements of the mouth. Great fun to watch.
    The fake Godzilla that had babies is from the god awful New York Godzilla made in 1998. (Tristar and Dean Devlin) Was Zilla in Godzilla in Final Wars.

  3. I was hooked on “Hakaba Kitaro” from the beginning, I loved it. But it is a very different show, so I can understand why it got the rating it did.
