221: SFFCH – Gojira [1954]

This week the Spoiler Filled crew go all the way back to the 1950s to watch Godzilla and see what the fuss is about. Listen in as Rich, Abi, Jamie and Anthony all reflect on its grim meditation on nuclear warfare, use of superweapons and how a funny costume almost derails the whole thing. There’s also a myriad of confusion over which classic Godzilla foe is which, an unexpected comparison to Thunderbirds and a not so unexpected comparison to the work of the Jim Henson workshop.

Enjoy!
