Episode 08: "Monster Lawless Zone" (catch up on past episodes)
Original Air Date: September 04, 1966
Featured Monsters: Red King, Pigmon, Magular, Chandrah, and Suflan
The Science Patrol attempt to rescue four lost meteorologists on an island but find themselves smack-dab in the middle of a feral land of ferocious monsters and deadly plants.
This is the Ultraman episode I've been waiting for. It has almost everything I've been looking for in Ultra-entertainment: multiple monsters for the price of one, creative monster suits, bloody monster carnage, fire, little comic relief from Ide, and - best of all - no annoying Japanese kids! Except for the fact that the whole episode takes place on a boring, rock-filled island instead of a miniature Japanese city, "Monster Lawless Zone" may just be the best episode of Ultraman yet!
|Let's get ready to rumble!|
In the left corner, weighing in at 15,000 tons, is the bat-like creature Chandrah! His opponent, the beast with the biceps, weighing in at 20,000 tons, is the saurian-shaped Red King! Both creatures are engaged in a ferocious battle. Chandrah is already wounded and bleeding from the leg while Red King grapples with the bat-creature and hurls boulders at it.
|I vant to suck your blood!|
|The budget for the new Tremors sequel really took a dive|
|This is another vine mess you've got yourself into, Ide|
|I don't care if it's friendly. Kill it. Kill it with fire!|
|Can't decide if he's in the mood to rock or roll.|
|We've replaced Hayata with a cash dummy. Let's see if anyone notices.|
|"Great, I'm being saved by the Clown Patrol"|
|The Lonely Death of Pigmon|
|"Doctor, my joints feel on fire."|
|"Why you little...."|
|Hey, I called time out!|
|Pigmon: Gone and completely forgotten|
