Search for Mattdm's post or look at his signature,
he has made a wonderful review of available flash for pentax.

I don't have any particular brand to recommend, but I would certainly be staying away from any flash that interacts with the camera beyond being triggered by it.
Just get a basic auto flash with a tilt and swivel head.
