Series 4 - Episode 3

Ah yes, I still have this episode on tape from its original CITV broadcast ;) Look out for the graffiti on the castle wall as they go down the steps in the eye-shield sequence! Found a chicken (which they took as food) and a bracelet. A skull appeared (looks terrible on my LCD TV!). Summoned Hordris...

Series 4 - Episode 2

Resumed here at the Fortress of Doom, and encountered Fatilla the Hun (a big ugly person, according to the advisers) in his first appearance! Bribed him with the gold, convincing him that it 'tastes very nice' because he didn't know what to do with it! Julie asked the advisers to guide her out of th...

Series 4 - Episode 1

Yes, Series 4 started today. Couldn't start on Monday, since Challenge decided to have a marathon of Who Wants to be a Millionaire instead. I missed the first little bit of this episode - well, I _saw_ it, but didn't get it on tape because it wasn't in the right place. Started taping at the point wh...

Re:Let's think of some bad knightmare puns and phrases!!

Didn't Lord Fear say something along the lines of "The short cut will really be the short... cut!" when he sped up the Corridor of Blades near the end of S8?

When LF has a Medusa Eye... Skarkill says "Stone me, your fearship... lordship"

Series 3 - Final episode (16)

I didn't get my tape positioned in time to get the intro of this episode, but at least I saw the first bit ;). If my calculations are right, the time-out of the previous episode should almost seamlessly integrate into the start of adventuring this episode! ;D Gained a SPEED spell from Hordriss. What...

Series 3 - Episode 15

Not quite a seamless transition between the last episode's time-out and this episode's start! After escaping from the goblins in the cave, they entered the mine cart room - with a force field (a shimmering spiders web) over the exit. I liked Martin saying 'Stop whispering, I can't hear you' to the a...

Series 3 Episode 14

When Martin went forward towards the flames, notice he took only one step and stopped - then the camera cut back to the advisers. If the animation had continued at its normal speed, Martin would almost certainly have been torched by the flames! Perhaps they were let off? Today I managed to watch the...

Re:Series 3 - Episode 13

Merlin appeared before the dungeoneer had stepped onto the 'pattern' tile that usually summons Merlin! There was a blue hue on Merlin's beard - perhaps reflecting the blue room, but below the threshold to make the chromakey show its background. Took a long time deciding the answer to the first riddl...

Re:Series 3 - Episode 12

I liked how Mellisandre didn't give any clues about what was actually in the two rooms (snake pit and serpent's tongue), but just told the dungeoneer to trust her ;) This time they got off the serpent's tongue and onto the side passageway, rather than through the mouth. Next, the clue room. Scored 2...

Series 3 Episode 11

Only got 1/3 on Golgarach's riddles, so didn't get any information from him about the clues. Took the horn and the key - at least they didn't take the dagger, like several other teams! Met Mrs Grimwold in the 4-door room, and refused to buy a map of Level 1 from her. Dungeoneer sidestepped into the ...

Re:Series 3 - Episode 10

Is it just me, or was the image flipped horizontally (from where the last episode left off) when he was in the dwarf tunnel at the beginning? Met Mellisandre feeding the 'worms'. "Why have you got that silly hat on?" "Dunno" Answered a 'nursery rhyme' question and gained a Step clue for later on. Th...

Series 3 Episode 9

I decided to post a new topic rather than continuing the old one. The old one carries on to Episode 10 and might contain spoilers! I missed the beginning of this episode because my videotape was in the wrong place :(. Just managed to start it as time-out ended, as the dice was opening up. I like how...

Series 3 Episode 8

Began on the Spindizzy this episode. I wonder how they get the dungeoneer set up for the spindizzy - place him on the centre and then start it rotating? Also, the spindizzy is clearly not blue, so why don't they ask the dungeoneer if they could see the edge of the disc before making him jump off? En...

Re:Series 3 - Episode 7

Ah yes, this is the episode where letters appear throughout the episode for a CITV competition (spelling out a word). The team obviously didn't see the letters appearing on their monitor, they were added in by CITV or by Anglia Television. I wonder if a version of this episode exists without the let...

Re:S3 - Pool Room Uses

I quite liked when there was a shark in the pool room (only happened once, if I remember right) and also when one of those magic swords came out of the pool. What would be good is if the water swirled and turned into a huge hand that chased the dungeoneer until he reached the exit. But that would pr...
