Ultra Q The Complete Series

Ultra Q The Complete Series Blu-Ray from Mill Creek Entertainment has an MSRP of $49.98. The classic series that launched the Ultraman franchise!
After co-creating the iconic movie monsters Godzilla, Rodan and Mothra for Toho Studios, special effects director Eiji Tsuburaya launched his own company, Tsuburaya Productions. The first production under his new label was ULTRA Q, a 28-episode series that brought the theatrical spectacle Tsuburaya had become known for to television. 

The black & white sci-fi drama focused on Mainichi Shimpo photojournalist Yuriko Edogawa (Hiroko SakuraiUltraman), Hoshikawa Airlines pilot/SF writer Jun Manjome (Kenji Sahara) and his co-pilot Ippei Togawa (Yasuhiko Saijo), who partnered to investigate mysterious events occurring in and around Japan. These phenomena often involved aliens and giant monsters, many of whom would return in future Ultraman shows and movies.
One of the most expensive TV programs produced in Japan up to that time, ULTRA Q was a rating smash that paved the way for Tsuburaya Productions' first color series... ULTRAMAN!
My Opinion: It was interesting but a lot of subtitles which I felt were a bit distracting. If you enjoy creatures and aliens you will enjoy this- it does remind me of the Godzilla movies with similar props and style of movies.
