Third-episode verdict: Flash Gordon

Posted on August 30, 2007 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

It's around now - well, truth be told, it should have been a number of days ago – that I passed a third-episode verdict on Flash Gordon. However, as we all know from the clearly defined rules of The Carusometer, if there's a sudden change in quality, either upwards or downwards, we have to hold off until episode five before deciding a show's final rating.

In Flash's case, episode three was a marked improvement on the first couple of episodes. The show's now going for more or less full-on comedy, the characters are improving, Mongo is getting a bit more alien - the only thing that hasn't improved is Ming, who I think simply misses having a throne.

So episode five it'll be before the final ruling comes in. Unlike Ming, we're merciful round here.
