Godzilla and Rodan vs Monster Zero

What a classic.

To recap...a new planet gets discovered. It's called "Planet X". There's a monster on the planet that the inhabitants want destroyed. The inhabitants look like Japanese with funky shades.

They sign a peace accord with us (planet Earth) to "borrow" Godzilla and Rodan to destroy Monster X. Er, I mean Monster Zero.

I especially love Godzilla's victory dance. Again, a classic. 
Trivia: Nick Adams plays the token US actor in this. 2 years after his Oscar nomination.

The Event

Once again I got sucked into a show only to see it get cancelled after the first season.

First "Invasion", then "Cavemen" and "Aliens in America", and now "The Event".

Which was probably the worst of the for, but still...had to watch it to the end. And the end is now The End.
It's like buying a box of a new cereal. You paid 5 bucks for it, but hey, try it out, looks good. About halfway through you realize it's a mistake. Not awful but not great, either. Just bland. But you paid $5 for it so you might as well finish it to the end.
And that's "The Event". I don't even care how it should turn out.
