Rock Men!

Ah, Flash Gordon – the original 1936 series. On DVD. Tops. If, like me, you’re struggling to cope with just how dreadful it is, take heart. The Rock Men in episode 8 are truly wonderful, with their ‘ancient language.’ A language that, remarkably, Doctor Zarkov can instantly speak… and a language that also sounds, inexplicably, like an audio track being run backwards. Wonderful.
