30 year old heroes do not live with mom

Its called Fllash Gordon. He has blond hair. The bad guy is Ming, but unlike the mings of past Fash Gordon's this one is Ming not qite so menacing. More like Ming the night manager at McFastfood. No rocketships, all the denizens of Mongo look to be human. No hawkmen, no lionmen. No rocketships. No action. kok flash and his anorexic ex do battle a killer robot in Flash's mom's kitchen, but when defeaed the robot turns to a puddle of goo...so much for the Mongo killer robot company's warrantee policy. This program is bad on so many levels. Shakey cam is past cliche now. And speaking of cliche, karen Cliche is becoming the female "Ted McGinley" helping this shw jump the shark before it even hits the water.

Awful TV show - don't waste your time

This show is very poorly done. Acting is lousy. The plots are ridiculous. The premise is thrown out the window. It's a complete waste of time. The movie from 1979 was a little sleezy, but still adequate for kids and enjoyable to watch. But this TV show is just plain awful Flash Gordon still lives with his parents and Ming and Aura are poorly portrayed. Just don't watch it.
