Wow, you can tell Prime TV is enthusiastic about the Flash Gordon remake. It starts tomorrow and is playing weekdays.

Yes, weekdays.

At 3pm in the afternoon.

I might have actually watched that show, but yeah, with my memory, I'd never remember to record it.

I've heard that it's bloody awful.

Apparently, they took the campness out of it. What the hell is the point of Flash Gordon without the campness???

And all that's left is a dry, empty husk. :(

To be fair, any modern Flash Gordon adaption will automatically be disadvantaged by the absence of Brian Blessed. One must take this into account (unless they manage to procure Mr Blessed's talent, of course).

Alas, as predicted, I forgot to set up to record today's episode.
