Good Initial Audience for Show Inspired by 'Flash Gordon' Comic

By: E&P Staff Friday night's debut of the show based on the "Flash Gordon" comic gave the Sci Fi Channel its best series premiere telecast for 2007.

The "contemporized" version of "Flash Gordon" follows the new adventures of Flash (Eric Johnson) and his companions Dale Arden (Gina Holden) and Dr. Hans Zarkov (Jody Racicot). Also featured is the dictator Ming (John Ralston).

"Flash Gordon" was created in 1934 by Alex Raymond, and a Sunday version of the strip continues to be syndicated by King Features. The comic was one of the inspirations for "Star Wars."
