Series 3 Episode 6

I decided to post this new topic rather than replying to the old one, in case the old topic contains spoilers of the next few episodes. Mogdred appeared to the team at the beginning, and gave them a GLORY spell - which the team decided wisely they wouldn't use! Then the sword appeared again. Althoug...

Series 3 Episode 5

The Oracle's voice was a bit hard to understand - but I liked it when it "descended into drivel", talking about the Wizard of Oz, because, because ;) I liked when Leo did a dance to invoke the first step! Did you notice how he very nearly stepped off the edge, but the step appeared just in time? Mer...

Re:Series 3 Episode 4

Notice in this episode, it didn't seamlessly carry on from the previous one. We saw the dungeoneer both leap off the Spindizzy and zoom into the doorway in the crystal ball recap scene, and then the screen cut straight to the red corridor. Tackled the new-look Corridor of Spears, which was haunted b...

Re:Series 3 episode 3

Merlin and the Dungeoneer clearly weren't together in the blue room. The dungeoneer walked forward, and if Merlin had still been there would have bumped into him ;) (He hadn't quite completed fading away) Scored 2/2 on Merlin's riddles and got a DANCE spell. I liked the cave sequence, where the dung...

Re:Series 3 - Episodes 1/2

Sorry, I didn't know what to do for this long description - post a new topic or reply to this 3-page one? I did the latter ;) Lots of good things in this episode! I liked how the dungeoneer had to crawl into the hole in the wall - and came out in the clue room, still crawling! First appearance of th...

Re:You know you've watched too much knightmare when...

When you start putting any item of food you can find into your bag, and expect it to relieve your hunger! When you start sidestepping left and right to get past obstacles, without changing the direction you're looking in. You refuse to look through a magnifying glass for more than a few seconds in c...

Series 3 Episode 1

Moderators: I couldn't find a Series 3 Ep 1 topic in the Episode Discussion forum, and couldn't create one, so I posted it here - please move it. -- Well, Challenge is onto Series 3 (again) now! I think I saw a shadow of a microphone or camera just before Treguard put the helmet on the dungeoneer ;)...

Re:Series 2 - Episode 16

Final ep of Series 2 today, and some very good things this episode! Firstly, Gretel was getting some 'beauty' treatments, which sounded like traditional stuff ;). The team gave Gretel some old traditional beauty remedies too! Then, tt was back-to-front day, meaning from when they leave the kitchen, ...

Bluescreen technology

Anyone happen to know how the bluescreen chromakey unit was actually set up in KM? On most sets I've seen, whatever is blue above a certain threshold value is replaced with the background. Things that are near the threshold value (e.g. if someone's wearing a blue shirt), seem to flicker and sparkle ...

Re:Series 2 - Episode 15

I liked this episode. Mildread was impressed with the talisman of invisibility! In my opinion, the team should have died in the Bomb Room since they took the wrong door after Mildread gave them the clue. They thought that since "The right door has a bomb on the other side", the left door (opposite t...

Re:Series 2 - Episode 14

Is it just me, or did Igneous have a drop of water on his 'nose' at the beginning? Still having to listen at doors for Folly's laughter though ;) I thought they touched the Bishop in the Combat Chess room but were probably let off. Why was their life force so low after the chess game - didn't they g...

Re:Series 2 - Episode 13

Good episode today, another winning quest - but I'll get to that later ;) Interesting way of calling Merlin, by picking up an M talisman! The highlight of this episode was, of course, the scary Medusa! This time it had different, much scarier 'music'. The dungeoneer had to hold up the magic shield, ...

Re:Series 2 - Episode 12

The dungeoneer was chased by the Automatum in the green 'frog' room. Notice how the Automatum actually touched him - but I think they're only killed if they're not able to escape. (The Automatum would clobber the dungeoneer) Even before Treguard mentioned 'something was amiss', I could tell Gretel w...

Re:S2 - Team 2 (Death)

Here's my version of the death scene, captured from the version Challenge broadcast a while back (hence the on-screen logo) http://tomsonic.dyndns.org:90/temp/km/s2t2death.avi DivX 5 codec, 256 by 192, 25fps I'd have liked to do it at 384 by 288, but for some reason the card refused to capture at th...

Re:Series 2 - Episode 11

Bit easy in the Beam Room - all they had to do was walk straight forward in the direction the dungeoneer was facing! Other teams have had the dungeoneer slightly misaligned in this room and had to keep stopping, rotating and/or sidestepping the dungeoneer =P Bees were used on the troll this time, by...
