Episode 213: Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster
First aired: The Comedy Channel on 2 February 1991
|Joel & the Bots are late to the theater|
This episode is also the last first-run episode to debut on The Comedy Channel. The channel would merge with HA! on April 1, 1991, and become CTV, then changing its name to Comedy Central on June 1 of that same year.
The Invention Exchange was okay. It featured one of Joel's fake hand gags. In this one, he played the Mind Control Guitar. It was clever, but not one of my favorite gags. The Mads' Chew Toy Guitar was just plain annoying.
|"The weather started getting rough." "The tiny ship was tossed."|
This film is the 7th in the Godzilla series. It was never released to American theaters, the first of the franchise to go directly to television.
The plot (yes, there's a plot) involves a stolen yacht, a shipwreck, an evil plot to enslave people or something, and big silly Japanese monsters. It stars Akira Takarada, who's been in six of the films in the franchise, as well as some other big silly Japanese monster movies. You might not know his name, but if you've seen any Godzilla or similar movies, there's a good chance you've seen him and would recognize him.
