Ultraman Commentaries

My collection of commentaries, some short, some long, about the Ultraman TV series.

Ultra Q (1966)

Ultra Q is a show where just about anything can happen. When you start an episode there’s no telling what kind of story might be coming, other that it will probably involve a giant monster of some sort. These are quick thoughts about each episode.

Ultraman (1966-67)

With new, high quality Blu-ray releases in the United States, this classic “tokusatsu” — special effects — series, a show much stranger and more experimental that you might expect, is finally getting the attention it deserves.
