Flash Blasts Off Again

SCI FI Channel has green-lighted production on Flash Gordon, a series based on the popular comic-strip franchise, the channel announced Jan. 12 at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif.

Production on the 22 one-hour episodes begins in Canada early this year. The series, produced by Reunion Pictures, is slated to debut on SCI FI in July, with a broadcast syndication window to follow.

The series will be produced under an agreement between King Features Syndicate, which owns the rights to Flash Gordon, and Robert Halmi Sr. and Robert Halmi Jr. (The Legend of Earthsea).

The characters of Ming, Dale Arden and Dr. Hans Zarkov will be brought back for a contemporary retelling of the comic-strip story created in 1934 by Alex Raymond. The strip is still distributed internationally by King Features Syndicate.    


I'll be tuning in. Though it will be hard to imagine it without the Queen theme song. Wink

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

Wonder if they'll play it straight or not. Closer in tone to the comic strip, the cartoon, or the film. Or will it be in the mode of Stargate/Andromeda with just new names stuck on it.

Or should we worry that they'll try to do aBattlestar Galactica on it. It worked for that show, but might not for this.

Clever pulp done with good CGI effects could be fun. Say Brisco County Jr. meets Farscape.

The Halmis have a mixed record to me. For everything I liked, say Farscape, Merlin or The Arabian Nights, there's something like The 10th Kingdom or Jason and the Argonauts that bored me to tears.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
