If we knew that we'd all have copies!

Seriously, it's been suggested that if there's ever a DVD release of KM, the Lords Of The Game pilot would be included in it. But don't hold your breath, there's little sign of a DVD release any time soon...

I have been promised at least some clips of the USA Pilot and the UK Pilot of Knightmare sometime in the near future.

I'll send them to the site the moment I receive them. :)

Weeeeelllll....

Not so long ago, people were looking dejected because getting repeats shown ANYWHERE looked far off.....

We can live, learn and hope.

I'm not writing the idea off, Catman, I'm just saying if we hold our breath waiting for it there's a real danger of mass-asphyxiation.

There is always a chance, the fact that KM has come back to TV and a new series is on the horrizon goes to show that anything is possible.

Back in the early days of this website nobody really thought KM had a chance in hell of getting repeats, let alone a new series. We just kept hoping and hoping, and BBK-ing and BBK-Ing!

A DVD is not too far fetched after all that :)

No indeed, but with Granada Media refusing to answer any questions at all about it, it looks like it'll still take a long time before there's a launch.

The American pilot, Lords Of The Game, was offered a while ago along with Dungeon Doom, the UK pilot from 1986.

Nothing has been sent since then, so I imagine a lack of time has gotten in the way, unless they have been sent to someone else (other than myself).

Failrly sure we shall get to see them at some point, though.

What do we know about the American pilot?

Where was it filmed?
When was it filmed?
Which characters were in it?
Which rooms were used?
Why didn't the Americans like it?
Are there any screenshots?

i read that the americans didn't like it because they weren't too keen on the chromakey. Why they did not like it? we shall probably never know....
