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

When was Knightmare even on freeview regularly ? I think maybe six, seven years ago but even then it was only one or two episodes back to back. Not nearly enough to satisfy real enthusiasts of the show. :( A few years back - and the actual date escapes me somewhat but I'm thinking 2013 - Challenge ...

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

I did indeed go to the previous Blackpool meetup as per Alan's list, but I don't plan on going to this one, so I don't have any opinion about dates.

Knightmare RPG

I'm dredging up this cranky old cobweb-strewn thread , for old time's sake. As some of you may remember, or have been wondering, Knightmare RPG Series 4, 5, 6 and 7 never saw the light of day. In its wake came other community-sourced Knightmare projects with a greater level of success, mainly on a s...

Re: Knightmare Chat Trivia

I'd be happy to job share it with Jen but with the increased number of lates at work now extended to finishing at 9 some weekends I couldn't commit to it solely. The good thing about job-sharing OP duties on IRC is that it's completely possible. The channel owner (that's Mystara) can set as many pe...

Re: Pooka Plush

That's truly awesome.

I've got a plush pooka that I made when I was young, but it's nowhere near as good.

Re: Where did Mogdred go?

... Where did Mogdred go? Level 4, perhaps? :green: I remember Merlin's Knightmare Top Trumps card (from The Quest ) saying something along the lines of: It is rumoured that one day, while experimenting with Time, Merlin inadvertently threw himself back to the mediaeval period, along with his evil ...

Re: Parody of The Big Bang Theory theme

Something that a lot of people know (but a few don't) is that the name of the song is The History of Everything , and that it's a BNL song in its own right, as opposed to just a theme song. I saw BNL play it live about a year ago. There's a video of the full thing (with lyrics) here . However, I thi...

Re: Series 5 Episode 9 (Fri. 7th)

Just watched this episode again and yes, there is a giant snake on top of the overhead lattice in the room where Ben meets Elita! I can't help but wonder why it's there. I don't recall seeing that particular snake before, and I don't think it has any part to play in this particular quest. Knowing El...

Re: Series 1 - Episode 8

Curiouser and curiouser. That's not quite the end of the quest, though - the final conflict would then have been with the dragon, probably defeating it with a spell from Merlin. Which kind of makes sense. We don't know what a 'win' sequence from Series 1 would have looked like, but judging from Seri...

Did anyone spot Ayoade’s reference to “the dungeon master” in Medieval Zone in New The Crystal Maze this week?
Yep, I spotted it... and I laughed out loud!

Re: CHAT not working.

Knightmare Chat has existed in some form or another since about 1999, and inevitably there have been some periods of inactivity and some nights where nothing has happened. If you haven't been able to access Chat it may have been some temporary problem with the server or the applet you're using to ac...

Re: A New Chain

This is a very weak connection, I think, but it works: - Paul Eddington was in The Adventures of Robin Hood , which contained a cameo from Patrick Troughton. - Patrick Troughton was Doctor II in Doctor Who ; there are many connections to Knightmare from there, but I'll be a smartarse.

Re: New The Crystal Maze Series 2

I'm going to go with "Series 1B", just to be extra. I've been enjoying this series too, and coming to Knightmare Chat an hour later than usual in order to watch it. A lot of the teams have been rather over-the-top in terms of celebration, but some others (like the aforementioned Jury team) have been...

Re: True or False trivia question

I also remember the Falling Bridge chamber from Level 3, which I think featured once in Series 3, was also seen in Series 4 (Malice: "I see you have survived blades. Let's see if you can survive a fatal fall...").

So I also say true.

Re: Series 5 Team 3: GHOST spell

Elita could have given the team a second spell. Ben's team needed two spells to complete Level 3, so perhaps Sarah's team would have as well. An alternative analysis might be that Elita could have warned them about the upcoming Corridor, in particular tipping them off to cast GHOST before they ente...
