Our featured Web TV this week is the the 12-episode movie serial, Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe, from 1940. Our hero, Flash (the coolest name ever?) gets on his rocket ship to visit a distant planet in order to save the Earth from a fatal plague. Of course, he will come across some evil characters, but nothing he can't handle eventually! Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe was praised for its cinematic sophistication when it came out and reflects some of the crucial historical events of its time.
