Huh. Didn’t know this was on the horizon and I’m not sure I’ll ever check it out. But, it occurs to me that the reimagined Phantom costume looks worse than the traditional one they make fun of. Still, I think it’s a decent concept — a kid is practically forced into the life of superheroing because of his lineage. Could work, just think I’ll end up catching this in reruns. It looks as bad as their Flash Gordon re-imagining.
Someone needs to inform SyFy that The Phantom is the sworn enemy of pirates and with piracy off the African coast back in the news that would have made for a far more interesting show in a contemporary setting. [via]
