Sven thanks the fans for 'huge' ratings for Godzilla, King of the Monsters!

For one who grew up watching Godzilla movies in the 1970s, this is the first time ever, I am seeing this movie on commercial T.V. First saw this one was in 1989, when I bought the Video Treasures VHS, then the Classic Media DVD in 2006.

So I can now fully admit to seeing every Showa G-film on regular TV.

^I guess the same is true for me! Apparently GRA played on The Disney Channel in the '90s, but I never caught it. I didn't even know the movie existed until I got the Godzilla Compendium in '98 (and I got a bootleg VHS three years later).

Thought Sven's trivia was even stronger this episode, and that was probably needed to navigate audiences through the whole 'Gigantis' weirdness. Can't wait for Godzilla vs. The Thing next week!

As I suspected, a few edits so far to keep the program (with Sven's bits) around 90 minutes. For those not tuning in, it's a pan & scanned version of the Monsters HD/Classic Media DVD transfer.

^My version is the same anamorphic (though trimmed on the sides) print we know from the DVD/Monsters HD, not quite 'pan and scan.'

But maybe there are some feeds for MeTV that are anamorphic and non-anamorphic?

Seems that Ghidorah and Monster Zero might be on the schedule for next month. Might be another month of Godzilla.

^It's not a full month of Godzilla, but it is a full month of new-to-Sven movies:

5/6 Ghidrah, the Three Headed Monster
5/13 Gargoyles
5/20 Godzilla vs. Monster Zero
5/27 Abbot & Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff (super misleading title)

I'm actually stoked to see Gargoyles. It's one of those major horror TV movies that came out of the '70s, like The Night Stalker and Trilogy of Terror!

Best Sven joke so far: asking the audience what the most prominent brand of Japanese mouthwash is before the screen was filled with the "Toho Scope" title screen.

Sven will repeat the month of Godzilla (KotM, Raids Again, vs. The Thing, and Revenge) next month, January.

And, hey, they still haven't shown Terror of Mechagodzilla or WotG!

Sven hinted at surprising new movies beyond the oft-repeated Universal flicks this year. This month has all been '70s TV movies new-to-Svengoolie and boy are they bad. Things are about to get more interesting, though: the first movie for next month is listed as The Revenge of Frankenstein!

This is a title owned by SONY, and that opens quite a few possibilities: they own the rights to several other Hammer Horror films, most of the Harryhausen library (all the Sinbads, for instance), Night of the Demon, Mothra, Battle in Outer Space, The H-Man, and most of the Heisei Godzillas, all of the Millennium Godzillas, and the Mothra trilogy. I think those newer films are less likely, though, as the program focuses on older stuff and most of those movies are too long for the time slot.
