Spandex Power Armour Episode 21: So You Want To Get Into Godzilla?

In a very special super short episode, we discuss the best entry points for people looking to get into the Godzilla franchise. We pore over the significance of ’54 and ’84, applaud the campy nature of most of Showa, and offer reserved criticism on the semi-serialised nature of Heisei. No normal person has an excuse not to get involved as we clear the air on the subject, with many terrible tangents along the way!
