Episode Summary

Area 51
H.E.A.T. travels to the infamous military installation known as Area 51 for their latest creature investigation, where they discover that a giant mutant armored lizard called the Thorny Devil is on the loose, whose aforementioned armor proves resistant to Godzilla's incendiary breath. Upon investigating further, the H.E.A.T. team discover that Area 51 doesn't actually house the bodies of deceased extraterrestrials and confiscated alien technology, as widely rumored (see below), but was actually used to house and study a previous generation of mutant beasts created as a result of the atomic bomb tests conducted in the desert areas of the American Southwest during the 1950's. They befriend a prominent scientist employed by the base, who Randy also finds himself romantically attracted to. In the meantime, Godzilla finds himself hard pressed to defeat the armored Thorny Devil, until the cunning Kaiju King manages to knock the creature on its back, and then uses his incendiary breath on the beast's unprotected underside, thereby finally managing to defeat it.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Area 51 is THE most heavily guarded facility in the United States, if you went in and tried to get some information you could be shot and killed without question. The base's security measures include trip wires, infrared radar, guard towers, tanks, aircraft, ground troops, drone gun turrets, not to mention the whole area is a No Fly Zone; any non-US military aircraft is shot down without any warning. If you ask me, both H.E.A.T. and the conspiracy theorists entry to the base shouldn't have been that easy. Plus, any surviving intruders that caught at Area 51 are immediately arrested, interrogating, most of which disappear without a trace.

      • At one point, Nick refers to H.E.A.T. as Humanitarian Ecological Analysis Team, despite the fact it really stands for Humanitarian Environmental Analysis Team.

      • Craven considers the alien conspiracy theorists to be crack-pots, despite meeting aliens himself along with the rest of H.E.A.T.
