Episode 05: "Secret of Miroganda" (catch up on past episodes)
aka. "Treasure of the Miloganda" / "Greenmons Appears"
Original Air Date: August 14, 1966
Featured Monster: Greenmons
A giant radioactive plant monster is killing all the members of a scientific expedition. Is the vegetation vengeful or does some other instinct motivate the mutant monster? The Science Patrol gets to the bottom of the mystery and puts an end to the plant's terror with a little help from Ultraman.
This week's installment of Ultraman isn't much of an improvement over last week's adventure about a giant cranky merman. This week, the sets and visual effects are much better, but the monster costume and story are still incredibly boring.
|"Feed me, Seymour!"|
|Your death in shadow puppet theatre|
|Reminds me of the skin that forms on top of old green Jello|
|"That's no moon...."|
|Oh no, not the family vacation slides again.|
|Arashi, you gonna wear me like a sleeping bag, boy.|
|No one steps on a church in my town|
|The original green thumb|
|Even the Ultraman costume looks bored|
Bleh. As with last week, this episode of Ultraman was a serious let down. But then again, there's always next week. Five down, 34 to go. Won't you join me?
