  • exciting episode

    Flash, Baylin and Zarkov detects a rift somewhere at a residential community. They find a dead body of a soldier sent by Ming to hunt down a life sucking beast. Dale and Flash deal with issues from their past about their relationship while trying to find an alien stalking men on Earth. It's a really exciting episode. Watching flash gordon finding this life sucking alien is really fun to watch. When flash works with his colleagues, the plot of the episode gets really exciting. The writers kept the funny tone of the show, it's a good episode, I can't wait for the next one.
  • A life-sucking creature from Mongo visits earth.

    Hmm, a life-sucking creature that ages its victims is not very original, but at least this episode didn't have major plotholes (there was a minor one, but I'll come to that). I even think it's been one of the better episodes notwithstanding the unoriginal plot. I thought the comic relief in this episode, the dead soldier was used quite effectively, no matter how odd that sounds and even if that plot has been done before as well (entire movies have been based on it actually). Still, a dead guy getting a business card from an interested saleswoman was fun.

    Sooner or later, the writers will have to deal with Joe. I actually thought this would have been a good episode to finally tell him about the situation, but no, conveniently in his case the aging process also affected his memory even though the two athletes remembered what happened and who they were.
