vs. Attack of the Monsters

Episode 205: The B-Raters vs. Attack of the Monsters starts Saturday night at 10:00pm Central on Google Hangouts and YouTube. The replay will then be made available shortly after broadcast (usually a day or two). We're actually getting to the point where we can do a little post-production and throw some lipstick on these pigs but it's slow going.

This episode features one of the stars of our show, Gamera, in his quest to fight Guiron. It is also known by the title Gamera vs. Guiron. This is one of those B-movie classics (all Gamera films are) that has to be seen to be forgotten.

Gamera was originally meant to rival Godzilla (he fights him at some point) but became a Japanese kaiju icon in his own right following the release of several films in the 1960s. His fame grew in the United States in the 1970s after UHF stations began playing Gamera features usually on cut-rate Saturday movie features, many of which were hosted. The 1960s saw a boom of Big Lizard films from Japan, rivaling the Big Bug movie boom of the 1950s here in the States. Several more have been made in recent years but the original run of seven Gamera films ended in the 1970s with the rights-holding company's fold. Gamera has also found fame inside the four-color world with a movie tie-in series from Dark Horse.

The B-Raters vs. Attack of the Monsters (Gamera vs. Guiron) LIVE this Saturday night around 10pm Central on Google Hangouts and YouTube.
