Just thinking on it, it would have been cool to have seen Mogdred just once, as a taste of things to come. I'd guess since he got mentions from Merlin that he would have appeared if teams had got far enough. Perhaps he could have been involved in finishing off the final team. The plain Jericho 6 ending always struck me as a little bland.

I feel that if the final team had taken the horn, they would have blown down the wall, gone on to encounter Mogdred, cast the SHIELD spell against him and then go on to win their quest  :)

Yep. Just not enough time :) They'd've probably needed about a good 5 or 6 minutes more.

Do you think that series 1 and series 2 started off as quite hard and ruthless and then got easier (presumably so they'd get a winning team after a while)? It went from "what precisely is her cat?" to "a friend in need". Series 3 is the first instance of a consistently hard series (although the infamous beetle question might have been an attempt to get a winning team).
Subject to change.

I think Series 2 got easy for a bit, no disrespect to Team 4 but I think they breezed through Level 3 without the need of clue objects!

Series 1

Post by Wolfshead »

:D ;D :D :D

Yesterday I saw series 1 for the first time since it originally aired and I watched the whole thing back to back. I've had it taped whilst at Uni, I went home for the weekend I didn't watch any series 2 cos that'd spoil it and I get home on Friday.

Anyway seeing the original series really made me think. I don't think that Lillith is particularly evil anymore though I still haven't ruled out the idea of her being the Lillith of legend.

The wall monsters were a little dissapointing because they looked so alike. They had good riddles though.

I liked Merlin's chamber espedially with the listening key.

I also thought that the crumbling corridor of the catacomb was good.

The old corridor of spears is alright as well.

All in all series 1 is quite good and creepier than series 3 by far. I do think though that much of it moved a bit too slowley and its also interesting that sidestepping was never used.

I find S3 far creepier, especially when you can see characters in the far distance in the Vale of Vanburn....Never did like that, and sometimes you never found out what the creates and characters were.

Was the vale of vanburn that long,open valley with the yellow path that team 1 died on when they fell into the green swamp.
I loved that chamber/area. ( i suppose it's not classed as a chamber because it was an open area)
What's a 'vale'?
what/who is vanburn?

Yes that is the Vale of Vanburn. Later in S3 you see odd creaures far in the distance...Not nice.

The Vale is the actual place itself, bit like a chasm..I'll attempt to find the definition. Vanburn, to the best of my knowledge, is simply a made up name, I cannot say I have come across it anywhere else than on KM, and they don't explain what the significance of the word is there, either.

Treguard said that the dungeon was allied with strange lands, so maybe it was part of the Elf realm. Is this called Elvandis?

It was never refered to as 'Elvandis' in Knightmare, if that is what you mean.

It does appear to be an elvern place, considering Velda was often found in the area. There again, it seemed many things lived there looking at some of the creatures and characters in the distance, am fairly sure Mellisandre was one of them.
