I love how the fire was used like that. A very effective device, imo.

Good episode, probably the most enjoyable so far this series - nice to see them trying new stuff.

A blunderer. The Giant could not have truthfully said that he smelt the blood of an Englishman, on account of the dungeoneer being from Wales and being a girl. ;)

In the room where the bridge comes down, does anyone else find that "DUN DUN DAAHHHH!" fanfare ridiculously inappropriate? Most of the sound effects in Knightmare are really well chosen, but that one is just so random and OTT! Surely something else would have worked better - maybe a creaking or whooshing sound as it moved into place?

Bomb room death was one of the all time best... really looked looked like the blew up.. lol Follys riddle could be anymore obvious.

But the other team got a really raw deal, killed off for only getting two questions right? When other teams get a pass? And a locked door in the bomb room was a nice touch.. I wonder had they not picked up the key if the same room would have been giving? Really thought they were giving a tough time, unless HAD they guessed the correct room they would be let off.

Why on earth they keep going left I don't know, everyone knows you keep right unless told otherwise.

Great to see the scorpion, better than the dodgy looking snake they had been using.

Yes, nice to see a Welsh team but I think their death was v harsh. I know they should have followed the code in the absence of clues but still, after last week's level two walkthrough it seemed a tad unfair. Throw in an extra obstacle for going left, sure, but don't end the quest.

Smacks of the producers intentionally mixing things up. Perhaps they were deemed not good television. I did like they way they tried to race past the giant before anyone had a chance to say 'script'!

I wonder if they would have found the exact same room via the right hand door, but with the spell working?

My fav episode of series 1! 2 deaths's as well! Correct me if I'm wrong but is this the only episode in the whole 8 series of Knightmare that 2 teams die?

Yes the 2nd team's death might have been the harshest of all the series. In series 2 Neil's team only get 1 riddle right yet they reach level 2. A little bit unfair!

The sound when the 3rd team have to cross the bridge is so epic and rousing!

Probs due to time, isn't next weeks the last of series 1? Be silly to start a new quest if they died during that episode. And the final team were giving that new opening room as a 'time killer' no way they would die but would certainly waste time trying to solve it.

Sorry if I posed this twice, my first attempt didn't appear to work.

This thread kicked off after Challenge showed Series 1 Episode 6 on 14th June 2004; and here we are, having watched it on Challenge exactly 9 years later. :)

Before Folly departed, he advised Danny, "Don't follow me, follow your nose", making it clear which perspective was correct. Danny's nose was even pointed towards the right door at the time, which makes the eventual choice even more unfortunate.

Even nicer to hear one, and I'd have liked them to have got (or been allowed to get) to Level 2. In the event, we had a Welsh team who fatally went left and whose lack of Welsh wizardry was bemoaned after dismissal: who says that lightning never strikes twice? (Apart from Huey Lewis and the News.)

This episode is the only time I've noticed human eyes behind the wall monster mask.

Already confirmed by Malefact earlier in the thread. :) This was also one of only two mid-series episodes (i.e. not Episode 1) to contain an entire quest. The other one is coming up in Series 2.

And the same room in which we saw Team 4 at the beginning of the episode.

hahhaha, that's one of my old accounts. Nothings really changed much in those 9 years.

So, wombstar, you posted as Purgatory? In that case, welcome back and may we direct your attention to the third Forum Rule?
