Cary's Shelf

Who remembers Saturday morning TV in the '70s? I do!

I'm betting there are others out there who spent time glued to the television set to watch these two groovy Japanese fantasy/sci-fi series back in the day. Whenever Japan was attacked by giant monsters, Ultraman or Johnny Sokko's Flying Robot were summoned to save the day!

When I learned that these two classic TV shows were remastered on blu-ray and dvd, you know I had to add them to our collection. If you aren't familiar with either show, think cool 60's costumes like Star Trek, Godzilla movies, terrible acting and amazing old-school special effects. These are so much fun -- you've got to check one out today!

It's time for a new generation to embrace these shows☺
