Flash Gordon and Green Flash Brewing’s Le Freak

 

Cheers! In this podcast we talk about “Flash Gordon” (1980), starring Sam J. Jones, Melody Anderson, Topol, Timothy Dalton, Max Von Sydow, an amazing soundtrack by Queen and some weirdos in rubber lizard masks. That’s right, “Flash Gordon,” not to be confused with “Flesh Gordon.” Although, we talk about that one a little bit, too. While all the other sci-fi movies around that time were taking space pretty seriously, “Flash Gordon” was doing the opposite. Discuss.
