episode 278: Agon, The Atomic Dragon (1968)

Byrd, Matt and Kevin discuss the short lived Fuji TV television series, Agon, the Atomic Dragon.  Filmed in 1964 and originally planned to be 26 episodes, this early attempt at a kaiju television series was cut short early and only had four episodes made (which weren't aired until 1968).  The show had some familiar faces behind the scenes including staple Toho screenwriter Shinichi Sekizawa and special effects artist Fuminori Ohashi.  We'll talk about the original plan for the show, why it was cut short so early, and some of the episodes that went unfilmed.  But first, we discuss the most recent synopsis and cast/crew announcement for the Godzilla vs. Kong sequel.  Relax and enjoy the show!
