Growing up in the 70s and 80s, watching Godzilla was a recurring ritual but it did not last long. I thought I’d be watching Godzilla on Saturday afternoon for forever. There was no feeling like knowing a Godzilla movie was about to come on. But the moments and memories became fewer and fewer as the years passed. It was easy to take Godzilla movies and my other favorite Japanese live-action and anime shows for granted. They were also on one local Philadelphia channel or another. We had Dr Shock, Creature Double Feature, Theater Bizarre, The Wee Willie Weber Show and more. But they were quickly gone. By the early to mid-eighties Godzilla could still be seen on Saturday afternoon tv, but the good old days were fading. Unlike today, we didn’t have dvds, blu-rays, dvrs, iTunes, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and the list goes on.
