Convention (Old Discussions 2004-2006)

Had a search to find my old, ridiculous idea of a Knightmare Convention I wrote here in January 2006 and I note that it's been merged with various other similar threads over the years, as all seen above - looks like I wasn't quite the first but predicting something eight years too early is still pre...

Re: Series 2 - Episode 9

Very, very odd quest. They really did just keep being let off at every turn - the Bumptious room seemed to have absolutely no point to it other than being a comedy bit of Thatcher-era satire, given that the riddles clearly had no effect on the team. Had they actually cast the SHOVEL spell correctly,...

Re: Series 2 - Episode 8

Echoing Wombstar's message here, a bizarre episode and an equally bizarre quest. Only one right in the Level 1 clue room and yet they've progressed well into level 2. Mildread tells them she'd have preferred a bone instead of a potion (and you can see the team's "Oh crap, we're dead" expre...

Re: The Sixth Doctor

I don't think there's any universally-agreed Best Sixth Doctor Story, he made so few (and that era in general is controversial enough to have at least one negative aspect per serial) but this I think is general fan consensus: Twin Dilemma: Avoid like the plaque. Or watch if you want a hilarious exam...

Knightmare Live in Edinburgh - 13/08/2013

http://imageshack.us/a/img841/3987/om3g.jpg "Ticket for Knightmare Live, please!" I say at the Gilded Balloon box office, four and a half hours before it starts but getting my ticket early to be on the safe side. "I don't think that's possible" came the reply. She checks the com...

Re: The new KM episode is up!

I think some people were expecting a perfect, jaw-dropping "Series 9" of an episode that was going to absolutely blow them away and be the best episode ever made in the history of the show, or at least near. Secretly so did I but that was always going to be impossible - it was only filmed ...

Re: Life force footage

They'd be long dead in something like Series 1's battle of insults :p

Re: Series 2 - Episode 5

Well. :) An easy ride or not, there's something genuinely uplifting and oddly poignant about the moment they win. Treguard (and indeed Hugo) is clearly loving it and the team really do seem overjoyed, their smiles and relief incredibly infectious as HEROES is spellcast. But then let's look at Level ...

Knightmare in the Metro

A bit late to the party and doesn't tell us much we didn't know already, but here's today's Metro getting in on the act (half of a longer article that goes into Geek Week itself): http://img855.imageshack.us/img855/3968/4l84.jpg (if it doesn't show up, http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/855/4l84.j...

Re: Back again

Welcome back! You prob don't remember me but I'm one of the early-noughties bunch who's also returned after a long absence. You've definitely chosen a great time to return - seems being a KM fan in 2013 is the new cool thing!

Re: Forum Member Reward

Dungeon Doom?

Lords of the Game?

New "director's cut" of the ending to Series 4 where Giles actually wins the damn cup?

Never-shown Knightmare/Fun House crossover episodes filmed in 1995 with Pat hosting KM and Hugo hosting FH?

Whatever it is I look forward to it :D

Re: The funniest death on Knightmare?

Think it's fair to say that Series 4's "Sidestep to your left" is the death that's lasted longest in people's memories, although "Red, green, blue, grey!" in the youtube age has gained a nice momentum too. How about least funniest? There's a fair few deaths in Series 3 that piss ...

Re: Life force footage

Even at the age of 12 I realised that the so called "life force warnings" were pretty meaningless. Perhaps if they'd have been a bit more careful with its usage, but when teams are constantly about 0.3 seconds away from it running out just as they're putting some food in their knapsack it ...

Re: Knightmare Live - Edinburgh - August 2013

The BBC have made a video about the show:

Starting to wonder if I should book my ticket in advance now, just in case it sells out!
