Flash Gordon: Season 1 (2007 - 2008)


Season 1
Flash Gordon

Critics Consensus

Lacking the campy spirit of previous versions, this Flash Gordon stumbles with unremarkable plotting and poor special effects.

Critic Reviews for Flash Gordon Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7)

The new "Flash Gordon" gets off to a slow start, but gets better.

Oct 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Nothing quite works very well, particularly the hot pursuit of Flash by Ming's lusty daughter, Baylin, who makes Dale newly jealous.

Oct 3, 2019 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

This series is an amateurish exercise in stupidity and a disgrace to the name of the enduring comic-strip-character-turned-movie-and-TV space hero.

Oct 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Peter Hume's adaptation beams into the realm of Sillyville around the time Mongo comes into the picture, and can't seem to find its way out.

Oct 3, 2019 | Full Review…

This is a cheap-looking, uninspired remake that aspires to a B-movie level, and most often flounders in the attempt.

Oct 3, 2019 | Full Review…

The script makes you weep. It is charmless, humourless and almost plotless.

Oct 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Don't waste your time watching this Sci Fi Channel version of "Flash Gordon," which is just plain bad, unless you're suffering from insomnia. It might help with that.

Oct 3, 2019 | Full Review…

"Flash Gordon" is a victim of pedestrian scripting.

Oct 3, 2019 | Full Review…

It's tough to get a sci-fi project to work as both effective drama and lighthearted fantasy, and "Flash" can't quite effectively bridge that gap.

Oct 3, 2019 | Full Review…

The story developed too quick, the energy was flat, information for the characters was derived in quick, unsubstantiated scenes. My interest was not fixated by the events in the show because I've seen these themes time and time again.

Oct 3, 2019 | Full Review…

With such a legacy to live up to, the bar is high for any Flash Gordon remake, and though the new show's plot details and characters are obviously based on the original stories, it doesn't really stand out when compared to so many other adventure shows.

Oct 3, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

For all the comic-book fans who can't get enough of grown-ups carrying ray guns and discussing the destruction of planet Earth, pretty lame effects and super-stiff acting keep this from being really great camp.
