Where'd They Get Flash Gordon's Space Ship
22 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not much imagination here. The basic content of the story is scientist finally sending a space ship into outer space, i. e. breaking the gravitational pull of the earth. They seem to have total control of the thing as it head toward the moon. As it sails around the dark side, a group of blips show up on the radar. At first they think it is gas, but when they change course, they are able to adjust and continue to follow the rocket. The problem with this episode is that it is sooooo dull. There is no suspense. There's virtually no science that is explained to us, other than they have found some cool rocket fuel. The rocket itself changes its shape from when it is launched to something out of some 1930's serial rocket. Pretty lame.
