Flash Gordon  -  Flaming Rocket of Lurve

Where’s my jetpack? I was promised a jetpack!

Oh my God, I desperately want a multifandom vid set to "This Used to Be the Future" by the Pet Shop Boys.
I can recall utopian thinking
Bold mission statements and tightening of belts
Demolition of familiar landmarks
Promises made and deals that were dealt

This used to be the future
When it was at back then
Let's tear the whole bloody lot down
And start all over again...

Ooh, you could do it using footage only from franchises that have been revived and/or rebooted: Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, the increasingly convoluted Terminator ’verse...
