Flash! Ah-aaah…Savior of the Universe!

SCI FI Channel has green-lighted production of 22 one-hour episodes of Flash Gordon, a series based on the popular comic-strip franchise:

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.

  1. I do wish they’d re-release the 1980 movie on DVD for Region 1. They did it for Region 2.

    It’s cheesy…but its fun!
