Flash Gordon – re-imagined and coming back to TV!! February 1, 2007

Posted by showmescifi in Flash Gordon, flashgordon, scifi.

SCI FI Channel is confirming that Flash Gordon is coming back!!

Apparently they’ve green-lighted production on Flash Gordon for production of 22 one-hour episodes. The series is scheduled debut on SCI FI in July of this year.

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.

First Battlestar Galactica now Flash Gordon. WOW. All I keep hearing in my head is the Queen theme song from the 80’s Flash Gordon movie.

FLASH…dum.dum… dum.dum…AH AH!.

Wait a sec forget that – below you’ll find the Queen video of the Flash Gordon theme. ENJOY!

Dunno how this will pan out…even by my standards, I think the Flash Gordon characters were nothing more than flat-out caricatures.

What will be their take on Ming the Merciless, that oleaginous Oriental stereotype….

Nice. Hopefuly they don’t have to make it too dark. There is a happy medium somewhere between the campy 60s and 70s and the way to dark and gritty 90s and 2000s. I hope they’re able to find it. Galactica was too dark and lost some of the boyish humor and fun that made the original fun.
