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.

The 98 movie can be entertaining on it's own, the main issue is, as always, the "Godzilla" title to it. It did not look or acted remotely like Godzilla should, hence the hate heaped on it.
