Time out annoyed me most too! Especially in the later series when the hourglass appeared in the top right hand corner of the screen! Oh well, we won't have to wait too long between episodes when S4 starts next Monday (that's the day I'm getting Sky TV!) - woo-hoo!  ;D

Way hey, and about time too, I'm very happy for you. Lets hope that it is also installed and ready for viewing, and video player with tape in at the ready, just in time to watch and tape the beginning of series 4 ;D ;).

I sure hope so too - I don't have a clue what time the guy'll come to install it.  

What time is Knightmare repeated at night on weekdays? I had a look at the Challenge schedule and it didn't say. Also what channel number do you need to set the vid to for recording Knightmare?

Have you got your viewing card yet?  I got Sky installed a couple of weeks before Knightmare started around Christmas, I thought the guy would bring round the viewing card but he didn't!  :o

So I had to ring Sky up to get a card.  Thankfully it arrived in a few days so I was able to watch Knightmare  8)

No - the woman on the phone at Sky didn't mention anything about a viewing card, I hope the man brings one or I'll miss the start of Knightmare! But my mum (who phoned Sky) did say that this was the first time we would have Sky Digital so surely they'd acknowledge the fact that we need a viewing card!

Do you think I should phone Sky again and ask them to make sure that he brings one?

Perhaps. Best not to panic though.

Yep - I'd ring them to make sure that a card is on its way.  After I had Sky setup, the installer said "Right where's your viewing card then?"
Me:What viewing card?
Him: The one Sky should have posted you...

::)

What annoys/irretates you (KM wise)?

For instants my mum always cooks supper late so that it always seems to be ready around about 7.30/45pm, which is really annoying when Knightmare is on. Also it is annoying having supper so late anyway whether Km is on or not. So anyway what annoys/irretates you then?

I have to say that temporal disruption always annoyed me all those years ago (and it does a little now, but without it km wouldn't be km) simply because I knew I had to wait a whole week until next friday for it to come on again! So I used to watch the episode I had recorded again, and again, and again. ;)

Pixel used to agitate me, and the shortcut (as I mentioned in room 101 thread), cutting out a level was a bit dodgy. Having said that I remember enjoying Dunstan's quest all those years ago, so I won't say anything more.

And I have to admit, despite loving challenge, the announcer comments at the end of km episodes get on one's nerves.

People who claim Barry's or Dunstan's quest was rigged.

People who insist teams were "let off".

Mellisandre irritates me full stop. That whiny voice gets on my nerves.

The Door Monsters in S4. Having to listen to "Oh dear oh dear" every single quest is excruciating. Throw in the "true and false" bit and you have my least favourite part of KM.

Challenge TV changing repeat times at short notice and deciding not to repeat an episode for no apparent reason.
