In anticipation of the series premiere of Flash Gordon on the Sci Fi Channel, we have been alerted to five clips for the show.
SCI FI is giving a 21st century spin to one of science fiction's best-known names, Flash Gordon. The new Flash Gordon follows Flash (Eric Johnson) and his companions, Dale Arden (Gina Holden) and Dr. Hans Zarkov (Jody Racicot) through wild and momentous adventures.
They're ordinary people thrust, often against their wishes, into extraordinary circumstances. In fact, they are Earth's last defense against the forces of a merciless dictator named Ming (John Ralston).
As the series opens, we learn that Flash's father, the eminent scientist Dr. Lawrence Gordon, died in a lab fire when Flash was just 13.
Flash has no way of knowing that something is approaching that will undo all he thought he knew about his father's death, and set him on a path punctuated by overwhelming responsibility and euphoric victories.
