Flash Gordon

New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 13th 2009 6:03PM
Mad Men season 2Here are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Now this is a DVD release week. Lots of stuff for every type of TV fan. I'm definitely getting Mad Men (and I'm going to watch all of the episodes again immediately to get ready for next month's launch of season 3), and I'm tempted to get the season 8 set of Bewitched, though I'll probably wait for the inevitable complete series set. I've never seen The Guns of Will Sonnett, but friends tell me it was good. Hopefully that's on Hulu or AOL Video or Retro TV so I don't have to actually buy it yet.

  • American Gladiators - Season 1
  • Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations - Collection 4
  • Bewitched - Season 8
  • Bleach - Uncut Box Set Vol. 3: The Rescue
  • ER - Season 11

Saturday Morning: Filmation (Part 2) -- VIDEOS

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 17th 2009 11:08AM

Space Academy was one of the live-action offerings from Filmation during the 70sIf the 1960s was a decade of birth for Filmation, the 1970s was a time where it skipped childhood and moved straight into the role of responsible adult. With somewhere in the area of 30 programs airing during that decade, the team of Lou Scheimer, Hal Sutherland and Norm Prescott became big players on Saturday mornings. Not only that, but the trio helped usher in a number of genres that would become staples for both their own productions and those of the other studios as well.

If that weren't enough, the 1970s saw Filmation dabble into something that had come and gone on the Saturday morning schedule since the 1960s: live-action series. Combining comedy, drama and special effects, the studio produced an number of shows that provided a lot less cheese than the live-action series of, say, Sid & Marty Kroftt.

Flash Gordon -- An early look

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 30th 2007 3:04PM

flash gordonI went into this updated version of Flash Gordon with basically zero knowledge of the character and its many previous incarnations. I know Flash has appeared in a comic strip, comic books, movie serials and on television, but all of those popped up before my time. Since this is clearly SciFi's attempt to bring the character back and make him appealing to a new audience, I figure my ignorance is beneficial.

So anyway, is the new Flash any good?

Yes, probably.

So, to start of, here's a quick rundown of what was already posted ...
