FLASH GORDON: a second look

So last night, since I was tuned to SciFi Channel anyway from having just watched Doctor Who, I figgered I'd give the new Flash Gordon series another try. I thought, maybe I was too harsh in my review last week.

Nope. I was right the first time. The show is actually getting worse.

Gina Holden, who stars as Dale Arden, is still a hottie, though. I don't think even this show can kill her career.

I saw it this time ... I agree with you. Notice, that's a very low budget production. I don't think Sci Fi has the dough to do a retro science fiction series. As cheesy as the Buster Crabbe Flash serials seem now, that was state of the art stuff then. That's why they are still good today.

SciFi usually does well with its series. Its movies, on the other hand, always suck. My favorite has to be "Cerberus".

I just finished watching the pilot and the first two episodes. What a bunch of bunck..... The stories are horrible, like a series that has run out of good plot ideas and is rambling to nowhere.
It is no long on my TIVO list.

I was just thinking that if Dale looked as good on the show as she does in your picture I might still have it on TIVO......
