We have only ourselves to blame for this one. Well, actually, it's pretty much all Big D's fault: Shat The Movies finally found the courage (and the commissioner) to tackle the 1980 space opera "Flash Gordon."

Whether you thought this horny Dino De Laurentiis fantasy was a terrific comic book adaptation or just a crappy "Star Wars" ripoff, it's certainly a film that's instantly recognizable through sight or sound. That Queen anthem, those wild colors and costumes: This is a movie best enjoyed on hallucinogens ... pantless.

Gene found a new personal hero in Topol, the Hebrew Harrison Ford. Dick appreciated the female empowerment. And Ash asked, "How many times can Flash Gordon die?"

In this episode, the Shat Crew also covered Max von Sydow in yellow face, faulty rocket designs, Chekov's pitot-static tube, psychological scarring from the "Wood Beast" and the tragic tale of a trilogy that died in the cradle.
