I'm shocked there wasn't a thread for the show already, considering it premieres this Friday night (8/10). Anyone have last minute thoughts?

I didn't even know the show existed. Who is running it?

It's airing on Sci Fi, 9 pm, starting tomorrow night. The pilot is 90 minutes.

Eric Johnson, who played Whitney in Smallville, is Flash.

I'll have to check it out but I'm not holding my Breath on how good it will be, this has great potential to Suck. Ming is now Just Ming, not Ming the Merciless. And When Whitney bought it I was'nt crying so having the Eric playing Flash does'nt thrill me, but I guess he looks ok. Will the Ship be Penis Shaped?

Umm, I didn't even know there was a first season. I saw the movie as a kid and that's it. Is it a new series or something old that came out on dvd?

I'll give it a try, but I'm guessing since my Flash Gordon is Buster Crabbe far more than Sam Jones, it probably won't offer me much.

Heh. I wonder if it's a bad omen that one of the actress's last name is Cliche.

I watch Dr. Who, so i guess i will stick around after that. Doesnt look to promising. I guess it cant be worse than Tremors. I do like Doctor Who, and Galactica. We only have 6 more months to wait for more Galactica! Thats about it for Sci-Fi, been slim since they ditched Farscape.

Wow. Next week, you can buy the pilot for the low, low price of $20 for a single episode. Even if Flash Gordon is the greatest TV show ever, I think I'll just watch it for free and wait for a complete set.

Of course, it'll probably street for lower than that, but it's still more than I'm willing.

I'll be checking this out tonight - I'm a big fan of SciFi's original programming generally, and I'm hoping for another good contemporary update of a classic series/property (a la BSG).

I will also be very shallow and admit that I like that kid from Smallville quite a bit. Posted Image

I saw some footage from the SciFi digital press tour and the cast seemed very likeable and into getting the chance to make the series.

The way I figure it, "Karen Cliche" (pronounced kleesh) is a good-news/bad-news indicator: She's got an uncanny knack for being cast in bad Canadian-produced shows, but she's generally one of the best things in them. It's like she's not quite good enough to make the big leagues, but she's better than everyone else in triple-A.

To be honest, the promos make the show look a little too serious and gritty for my tastes. Give me Sam J. Jones and Max Von Sydow any day!

here is a link for a bunch of reviews on the new series, and it doesn't look good either.

Tom Shales of the Washington Post isn't exactly a fan:

The planet Mongo, sadly, is no longer hurtling on a collision course toward Earth, its trajectory once controlled by evil emperor Ming the Merciless. Ming isn't even entirely merciless anymore, though still not the kind of guy you'd hire to babysit, and Mongo has been downgraded from planet to a sort of neighborhood.

It's Summer and I want a light hearted romp through the Universe.
I want laser beams and spaceships and weird aliens.

I'm invested in BSG, so I keep watching it, but I don't need another drama.
