Coincidentally, that first time was the Sci-Fi Saturday morning airing, which, correct me if I'm wrong was the first wide-release of it here?
I recorded the whole she-bang on VHS.
Rebirth of Mothra 1-3 (yeah, I have the dub of part 3), GMK and G vs. Megaguirus after staying up all night in anticipation.
I even manually cut the commercials by stopping and restarting the REC.
It was TOTALLY worth it.
The irony was I got this one as a Christmas present on DVD while I still hated it. Don't think I'd have ever had another chance to see it otherwise as both of my local rental stores that carried Godzilla items have since closed.
I remember recording Hedorah, Gigan, Megalon and MechaGodzilla on VHS during a SyFy marathon but the tape's been lost for years. I only watched it once and just a snippet of Hedorah.
