Lord Fear, the spyglass and so forth

Post by Arcengal » Thu Feb 06, 2003 12:56 am

I never watched Knightmare as a kid (too scary) but I've recently started watching it on Challenge.

Anyway, I was browsing through the "series" section and noticed that Lord Fear had a strange quotation:

"Something is spying on me...
Very well little spy, take a good look, because you know, looks really can kill"

Yet, in none of the episode listings for that series (or indeed any other) does it say they died because they looked for too long.

When did it happen?

I think it was. Series 5, episode 1 I believe. Yup, no-one was frozen apart from Sidriss in series 6.

Somebody was frozen actually :P

Series 6 Team 1

Matt was the dungeoneer, and the team had to "cry the reverse of  EPACSE".  They didn't really die, but they were frozen.
OoooOooOoohhhhh Nasty

Ah, yes. But then, Lord Fear didn't use his eyes to freeze them - he used a magic command.

wasnt it when he had the pool he used to out in arm in to get hold of the teams?

anway.. problem being with the spyglass it just gave everything away and the teams didnt have to play the price, but it added to the story lines

When you think about it, it was either threat of death from Lord Fear himself or a communications blackout at the end of each spyglass scene. It was basically a way of ending each spyglass scene, otherwise some daft teams would sit staring at nothing for hours unless Treguard told them to put the damn thing down.
