    It took some time but Flash Gordon became one of the better remakes of last seasons tv line up. A slow introduction to what many forgot is a super-powerless hero and his friends. Dale Flashes love interest was for me the weakest of group. She was not that attractive and her acting tended to be wooden. Aura who was Mings daughter provide the alleged hottie aspect of the show and to her credit was a much more dynamic character. Ming was a reserved tyrant compared to the eighties movie which most people associate with the Gordon lore. Most fans didn't like his take on the character but I didn't need a raving madman in my dictator so I was fine with his portrayal. With Zarkov and Baylin rounding out Flashes group. The cast came together nicely despite the dreadfully childish material they had to work with. To the shows credit it's hard to create a world of mystery and wonder. So I have to say for what it was it was good after all every show can't be Battlestar Galactica and sometimes a little cheese on a Friday night before and or during a few drinks is what you need.moreless
  • Okay, it didn't quite click with the original comics, but I was okay with that; as far as sci-fi is concerned the show wasn't bad.

    7.8
    I think another season would have been telling, but like journeyman, jericho, and others, it was cut before it really got its steam up to where I think it could have gone. The actors were good, not great, but good, and I think the storyline in the first season was okay to kinda funny...lots of potential, a gemstone in the rough...maybe, but we'll never know now.



    The same main actress in this show played a lesser role in the series Blood Ties, which was also cut this season, although from a different provider. Now THAT was a great series...just made it two before it got the ax...maybe Sci-fi will take that one on?



    As for Flash Gordon, I hope it is like the Sci-Fi powers inferred in their explaination as to why they snuffed it out...they think they could do better with the material, and want to give it a couple of years and then present another Flash Gordon series that's completely different than this one...more true to the comics? We shall see. Fare thee well Flash Gordon, I enjoyed you while you were on the air.moreless
  • this show was ok..

    6.0
    Flash Gordon was not one of my usual favorites but i could watch the episode no problem. It had a pretty good cast. Who ever was the Casting Director, two thumbs up dude or gal. It was kind of slow in the beginning but midway through the show it got better. especially when Baylin started doing strange stuff at Earth Dimension. My favorite was when she grabbed the turkey leg with her bare hands. If syfy ever decides to make a season 2 for Flash Gordon, I wouldn't mind at all, I'd watch it. It won't be my favorite but it'd be certainly a show I'd watch.moreless
  • My god how bad is this show

    1.6
    Flash Gordan has to have been the worst remake of a show ever this made shows like black 7 look like a high bugget production ( by the way blake 7 was a great show and some ne should make it again). What were they thinking of or not thinking when they came up with the idea of reimaging of Flash Gordan the acting was so wooden and unbelivibul the sets were to say the least bad the use of red filters and dark filters was over the top and in most uncalled for wether they were trying to show that the audience that they were on mongal or earth did they think we were thick and could not work that out ourselfs .

    Thank god its gone and some one with a bit of talant with take it and make the show the way it is ment to be.moreless
  • Absolute rubbish, quite possibly the worst pilot I've ever had the misfortune of watching.

    1.7
    There is not a single redeeming feature of this show, it is so poor I still have a bad taste in my mouth 24 hours after watching it.



    Where do I start though?



    1. The first shot of Mongo looks like any old generic warehouse/factory location from any old crappy show from the early 90's.



    2. Ming The Merciless. Not only is he NOT bald, nor have a goatee - they have cast quite possibly the least menacing bad guy EVER here! Honestly, it would have been more convincing to have used a puppy.



    3. Sets. Cheap, oh so very cheap.



    4. Script. What script?



    5. Plot. What plot?



    6. Acting. What - you see where I'm going here?



    Avoid this show at all costs, it's just plain rubbish.moreless
