The Satellite Game

Post by Canadanne » Wed Dec 04, 2013 8:59 pm

Wow, have you seen the episode of The Satellite Game that's been shared on a certain popular website? Stars David "Pickle" Learner as helium-voiced robot Lari!

The third contestant's introduction is slightly hilarious.

Gameplay is a bit non-existent which makes it rather tedious compared to Knightmare, but it looks pretty cool!

Who are the other actors in this? The round blue thing near the end sounds a bit like Edmund Dehn.

I suggest adding some screencaps to David's Lexicon entry!

You could try searching for it on there... ;)

D'oh, evidence of sleep deprivation here, I think! For some reason I saw "The Players" in the end credits and thought it meant the contestants!

Thank you for finding this, Annie. It's fortunate that the video had Knightmare in the name or it might have stayed undiscovered for a while longer. I thought that The Satellite Game would forever be a missing chapter in Broadsword history: this year has been full of screen surprises! It gives me hope than an episode of Time Busters may yet surface.

There are a number of interesting details to be seen and heard, including the use of a superimposed human mouth as seen on Knightmare's wall monsters, a possible Margret Thatcher impersonation in a surreal context and an apparent use of what became the Series 4 portal sound effect. Simply learning that David Learner's character was L.A.R.I. rather than Larry was worthwhile. Though how we got from CoCo to Codsby in four short years is a question best left to those with brains the size of planets.

In terms of reporting, it's a tough call: although this news isn't directly related to Knightmare and centres around copyrighted material, I would say that it warrants an article for Knightmare.com. But the final say has to be Alan's.

I'm watching it now. I'm really loving L.A.R.I, he's so funny ;D
