    Ultraman 1966

    Just found episodes of this show in English on youtube and started watching.

    Never seen or heard of the show before.

    Man, the costumes are CRAZY BAD !!!

    So far from what I've seen Ultraman is kind of a d_ck … He waits till the city is half destroyed and multiple people have died until he decides it's Ultraman time

    I still kinda like it though ….. It's kinda like what Gerry Anderson might make with a 2 dollar budget

    Was reading this show is actually a spinoff of another one --- I'll have to check that one out too.

    BTW, is Ultraman related to Jet Jaguar ?

    It is a great series and loved watching it growing up. He is not related to Jet Jaguar.
    Big Ultraman fan.

    '66 was the only Ultraman series I saw in syndication as a kid. I didn't even know the series continued over the years. I loved this and what I was able to see from the "genre" (Johnny Socko, Space Giants).

    I have to admit, it felt pretty slow when I watched again as an adult.

    Well for one thing I don't remember ever being played on TV

    Grew up in the New York City broadcasting area with channels CBS-2, NBC-4, WNEW (independent), ABC-7, WWOR (independent), WPIX (independent) and PBS-13

    7 Channels throughout my youth and none of them ever played it from 1970-1985-ish

    wow, we had it on a Chicago station and it was in FLA when I visited Grandma too. You'd think it was in NY too.

    Yup, same here, my fellow Bay Area amigo, lol.

    Big fan of Bob Wilkins, especially Creature Features. Bob Stanley was a fine successor as well.

    Ah, the memories...
