Scfi: Flash Gordon & Dr. Who

The SciFi Flash Gordon remake was a hoot -- modern sensiblity mixed with total camp, self conciousness, and bits of plots out of the golden age. I'll try to catch up to it once there are enough shows out there (got lucky enough to catch the pilot) to play with. Oddly, hitting the time differential meant it showed twice.

Next up was Dr. Who with Dave Tennant: the Lazarus Experiment. Beautiful episode, though the Doctor being a bit precognitive wasn't that helpful. But there were at least three great bits: 1. Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. 2. The Spinal Tap reference. 3. "Nobodly's 'just human'!" 4. The brilliance of the denoument/solution.

Mind, this was the first Tennant ep I saw. Won't mind seeing more, though.
