I've watched a few episodes on Youtube and it seems alright for a kid's show.
Grew up with both, and while I agree that the series is superior and a better example of what Zilla should have been, I still have some nostalgic love for '98, and honestly find it pretty entertaining to this day. I shared notes with other fans of where we ranked all the films from least to most favorite, and I realized that honestly I still like 1998 better than about 5 of the original Toho fims in terms of sheer entertainment factor and the creature just looking cool
The series though did a good job of paying respects to the old while continuing the 98 story, and deserves a place of value in the fandom overall.

The series actually felt like a Godzilla series and Godzilla, largely, acted like Godzilla. The weird similarities to the Hanna-Barbera cartoon were kind of interesting--It sort of improved on a lot of those ideas.
It hasn't aged particularly well, but it's still fairly entertaining. The three part Monster Wars arc was a definite highlight. Great music too. Shame it ended without much closure.
