More Episodes
The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 85th anniversary of Flash Gordon. It started out as a comic strip meant to compete with Buck Rogers, and stuck around in the funny papers for decades. It also crossed media, with movie serials, a radio show, and both live and animated TV series over the years. We even talk civilly about the 1980 film (somehow). Plus our standard silliness, as well as our picks of the week.
