    Am I the only one still hanging?

    I found FG to be getting better with each pasting week. I thought last night ep was the best so far.

    I know it's done on the cheap, but peeps are always saying it's the story that counts not just pretty FX, and the story telling part of FG is just starting to kick in.

    But hell what do I know, I liked ST Enterprise :eek:

    Haven't watched the last 2 eps yet, not sure if I'm going to get around to it or not.

    I liked the serial with Buster Crabbe a lot better. :)

    I didn't even know the show existed. I was channel surfing a couple weeks back and stumbled across it. I watched it for about 30 minutes before turning channels. The Flash Gordon movie is one of my favorite movies from my childhood. I thought this TV show was lame in comparison.

    I wanted to like this show. It had potential. I am speaking in the past tense because I finally gave up on it after the Hawkmen/Dactyl episode. The show does not make me care enough to follow it week after week. Give me the cheesy, campy movie from the early 80's any day. Hopefully, in a few years after people have forgotten this POS, an updated film will be made with modern effects, good actors, and most importantly, a good script.

    The Hawkmen episode was bad.

    Look like I'm the only one still watching. Guess FG waited to long to get to the meat of the storytelling.

    Flash Gordon Revelations was pretty good, but looks like no one's left to enjoy it. :eek:

    Not to mention spaceships, including an experimental one built by a guy named Zarkoff.

    I mean, come on. FLASH GORDON with no spaceships?

    Well, the original idea is for Flash to be young, and Zarkoff (or is it spelled "Zarkov"?) to be older, and for them to start things out with going in Z's ship to Mongo, isn't it?

    SlyLieChunnel once again cuts the heart out of a well-known scifi story.

    While it's actually fantasy and not scifi, I'm already cringing over their upcoming Oz reimagining..."Tin Man". :(

    I got halfway through the second episode and gave up on it. It wasn't horrible (see Moonlight), but there was always something I'd rather be watching or doing.
