The Horror Honeys: Sci-Friday Jam - 'Flash'

Sci-Friday Jam - 'Flash'

Flash! A-ah!
King of the impossible
He's for every one of us
Stand for every one of us
He save with a mighty hand
Every man, every woman
Every child, with a mighty


If you don't know what that means, or you only know what it means because of Ted, then I pity you, earthling. Flash Gordon is unequivocally one of the biggest dumpster fires ever made, but it also shaped many a childhood and fostered a love of ridiculous sci-fi films about football players who travel to planets called Mongo and save the Earth from Asian dudes (played by the very very not Asian Max Von Sydow) bent on its destruction. Sam Jones, Timothy Dalton, Richard O'Brien, Topol, Ornella Muti, Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid to you Potter-heads)... Flash Gordon is loaded with stars! Except for Sam Jones who was really just popular for that one thing. But best of all, Queen provided the kickass soundtrack, including the theme song. Just TRY not to root for Flash when this power anthem is blasting in the background. And if you disagree with me?
