2. Flash Gordon (2007)

Oh boy. You want to talk about a remake gone wrong? Look no further than 2007's Flash Gordon, which has essentially been erased from our minds because of how reviled it was.

A modern reimagining of the classic comic strip, the show debuted on Sci-Fi in August of that year, and it was instantly met with an overwhelmingly negative response. Critics reviewed its harshly, with just about every outlet openly dragging it, and fans didn't respond well to it either.

There was little-to-nothing positive said about those first few episodes, with the consensus being that it wasn't even worth watching for the most devoted of Flash Gordon fans. It did, however, receive something of a more positive (let's go with "less negative") reception the further that the season went on. Unfortunately for Mr. Gordon, it was too late to turn things around and the show was cancelled after its first season.

For whatever reason, the show just didn't come together. The low production values and illogical writing didn't help matters, but Flash Gordon had too many fundamental problems to succeed in the way that it should have. The fans noticed this quickly and they walked away from it as a result.
