Klytus, I'm Bored...What Plaything Can You Offer Me Today?

Monday, May 28, 2007
Seems that the Sci-Fi Channel (US) will be airing a new series later this summer based on the original 1930s Flash Gordon comic strip. You couldn't pay me to watch it.I'm sorry but it will never replace the 1980 version with Sam J Jones as 'da man, Brian Blessed as Prince Vultan, Ornella Muti as Princess Aura, Topol as Dr. Hans Zarkov, Max van Sydow as Ming the Merciless, or Timothy Dalton as Prince Barin. That will always represent Flash in my mind.

I watched that movie for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Where had it been all my life?

Although, I was really in it for the Queen action. And I didn't know Flash Gordon was just a quarterback! How disappointing!

Ah, memories! And major cheese factor. Now I must see it again!
