Re: Greetings

Welcome to our messageboard, always good to see new names whether you recall the original series or not. We all share the same interest and enthusiasm for what was once - and remains - a great show. I'm in the older bracket if you can call it where remember and watched the original run from late 80'...

Re: TruffleShuffle's Knightmare merchandise

Wasn't aware of these items, in fairness have never been compelled to purchase series items (or) from what was listed. Own a number of the books / literature episodes but as for wanting actual merchandise you can wear and present around the house, not something that has ever really come to mind. Is ...

Time Bandits

I couldn't find any mention of it in previous threads for this and sorry if duplicated anything not read but a few days ago watched Time Bandits for the first time. A very critically acclaimed film with names from the Monty Python team behind it but point being there were certain similarities with t...

Re: Anglia end screen

Viewed it again, the third or fourth time now. Seriously, can't see any monster feature as the author describes. Looks like a weather front above all else, you know, a picture of the Atlantic with a lot of cloud cover. Tried looking at it upside down and it appears that a pair of eyes are prevalent ...

Re: Challenge TV 'talked endlessly' about bringing back Knightmare

Endlessly is hard to fathom, you get the idea they discussed day and night about the prospect of bringing the series back but I don't think it's as clear cut as that. I'll be truthful I hardly watch Challenge, the Chase and Who Wants to be a Millionaire is OK now and again for general knowledge purp...

Re: Knightmare location based AR mobile game

I don't believe there's a market for the idea you suggest. I mean look at the other franchises mentioned in the above, the pull and attraction far outweighs our show. Surely it's not a viable venture - as much as we'd like to see it. As mentioned on another post just now, the Knightmare series would...

Re: Knightmare clip at BFI event, 28th July 2019

Watched the clip yesterday and agree the video didn't seem as it should. It's a shame Knightmare didn't feature more prominently at the event you attended but I think fans ( actual fans) of the show are few and far between. We're something of a unique crowd so to speak. Didn't watch many childrens p...

That was impressive. They still look as sinister as fan creations as they do on the programme.

Re: Happy Groundhog Day

Hadn't even given it a thought until now. The occasion just passed me by. It's an American thing isn't it. Not really celebrated in the UK, not sure of the origins of it all. It's where something repeats itself over and over. If I had my way that would be Knightmare on television every day of the ye...

Re: Radio Times 'top children's programmes of all time'

It's absurd that Knightmare isn't included in the initial list, can only imagine whoever put together the shows presented had never seen an episode of our great programme. Newsround was a strange choice for number 3, can remember it from the 1980s with John Craven, but it's (or was) an information p...

Re: Happy 30th Birthday Knightmare!!

Was still at school when the series first aired but had left when it went off air at the end of it's run. Can remember waiting to get home to see an episode and remember vividly one team in 1990 actually won a quest on my Birthday, it was as good as any card or present. Shame it only survived for se...

Re: Best Series

Other than chosen clips from Youtube, have not viewed the original series in 'proper format' i.e. on a TV broadcast, since the original run in the early 1990's. By this I mean the latter series of the program, from 4 and beyond for example. Therefore it's (often) awkward on specific areas of the pro...

Re: The Goblins

I haven't seen enough of beyond Series 3 or 4 for a (very) long time so can't recall if the Goblins featured so regularly as they did in the formative years of the series. As for being played by us 'girls', who would have thought it ? 8-o I think what we have here is a rare case of where the sounds ...

Re: Series 5 Episode 1

Series 5 ? Has there been an episode this week ? No, Challenge doesn't have the rights to Series 5 at the moment. Well that is a relief, I genuinely thought I'd missed out on episode since last viewing. If Challenge doesn't possess the rights to show as mentioned, then looks like we'll have a wait ...

Re: Series 4 - Episode 16

I think that was me (episode 15). As I recall the Adventurer's Code didn't specifically state that we were not able to say 'I challenge you' from series 4, in the event that we got all three questions correct. Were you an actual contestant on the program ? That's really good, you never stop to thin...
