Synopsis by Hal Erickson
One of the few live-action offerings on the Fox Network's "Fox Box" Saturday-morning lineup, Ultraman Tiga was the latest incarnation of the famed Japanese action series Ultraman, created by Godzilla mentor Eiji Tsuburaya. The title character, an enormous "Superbeing," joined forces with the seven-person Global Unlimited Task Squad (aka G.U.T.S.) to maintain the balance of peace on earth and in the universe. The 52-episode series debuted on Japanese television as Urutoraman Teiga on September 6, 1996. The English-language version made its American TV bow on September 14, 2002.
