    Flash Gordon starts in two days (and then two days later on Universal HD!) and there aren't any reviews yet? This is troubling.

    I've been looking too. That doesn't seem like a good sign.

    I'm looking forward to the series. These are the only reviews that I've found so far.

    Here's the review of Flash Gordon in Variety...

    Here's a review in The Boston Herald...

    Here's a review at newsday.com...

    Here's a review from The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette...

    Even the promos for this show make it look like crap. I set the season pass already though. :)

    So basically, we should "blame Canada."

    The funniest part of the Comic Con panel was when an audience member asked, in total seriousness, if The Flash would still be running fast and if the series will maintain the integrity of the comic book. The executive producer/head writer/showrunner Peter Hume, the panel, and the audience had a big laugh at that, and Peter had to explain to this person that this character is Flash Gordon, not The Flash.

    They have the balls to cancel The Dresden Files and put this junk on. I just don't understand they way they think, The wife and I loved TDF.

    Dresden is cancelled for sure? That sucks. I much rather would have kept that and not had Flash. I really liked the Dresden Files.

    Edited to add: I just found links everywhere. :(

    Thanks for posting the reviews, FilmCritic. I guess when I say "no reviews?" I mean no reviews on AICN. They are disappointing, but I will give the show a shot. It's doing one thing right over BSG with it's near simulcast in HD.

    You're very welcome! :)

    Yeah, I too wondered why AICN wasn't running reviews, as they usually do for new TV series when they debut but then I remembered that their TV guru, Hercules, doesn't usually post an article for a series until late the day before or early the day of its premiere airing.
