Rated 4.7 out of 5★ by 3reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by DoctorXombie Flash Filmation This is Filmation's effort to bring the serial comic strip to 'life'.Every episode is a 'Chapter' in the continuing adventures of Flash, Dale, and Zarkov as they explore the planet Mongo and try to save Earth from Ming.Wonderful animation with a lot of roto-scoping which gives parts a live action feel. This is an exciting and fun show for the entire family. 08/07/2007
Rated 5 out of 5★ by silentleonine A faithful rendition The animated Flash Gordon is, as the title suggests, the most faithful retelling of the classic hero's adventures on the alien planet Mongo. Flash, Dal, and Zarkov, although done with the simplistic Filmation method, kept a true vision of the characters' appearances.The series gave a tongue in cheek view of FLash and his friends, possibly to better accomodate the Saturday morning viewers to avoid scaring the daylights out of them (if Filmation had been literal in their translation, the images would have scared little kids.)This disc collection is perfect for those who remember the series during it's original run, and for kids who are trying to understand what their parents are talking about. A great family T.V. experience. 06/12/2008
