Monarch: Legacy of Monsters (Apple TV series)

Just watched the first episode and I think it's worthy of it's own thread. Really rich development so far spanning multiple generations.

Godzilla story spanning out of the recent movies, and the Monarch company.

Also just finished the first episode. Interested to see where it goes. It's nice to see a Godzilla project where the human plotline isn't totally boring.

Very, very solid start. I'll definitely be knee deep into this one.

Didn't get a chance to watch last night.....hope to tonight.


As a side note....Apple TV has some really good content and seems like a 'sleeper' streaming service that no one really talks about. But, every show I've watched on it has been really good.

This is a pretty cool show. Really liking it.


And I have a sneaky feeling that they've barely gotten started. It's really been 2 episodes of backstory and getting pieces in place.The shit will hit the fan....hard...

Im liking how theyre telling the story with the time jumps. Its been done before in other shows but there is an art to it. That method has to be planned out well as to not get overly confusing. This shows doing a good job at it.

Totally agree. Going to watch the 2014 Godzilla, I think that's where the G-day they talk about in the film happens.

Watched the first 2 episodes Saturday, theyre spending a lot of time fleshing out the back stories and I hope it pays off. Im not sold on Wyatt Russell as an actor.

Great show and I thought it really ramped up in the third episode. As a child of the 80s who grew up watching Kurt Russell in some iconic action movies, it is great seeing him back on screen is this role.

After 3 pretty solid episodes, episode 4 was a dud with a backstory surely no one wanted or needed to see?

Yeah episode 4 was a dud. Just one of those filler episodes that does little to propel the story forward. I'm sticking with the show though, hopefully it ramps up again in episode 5.
