Re:Series 2 - Episode 10

Noticed an error in this episode too. As the new dungeoneer calls his advisers, there's a MAJOR shift in camera position and zoom. The result is that it looks like a fade between two different camera angles, rather than simply the advisers gradually appearing.

Re:Series 2 - Episode 10

The team was chased by the Automatum across two rooms! Just got the food and entered the wellway in time! Also encountered the swinging pendulum room, only used once if I remember correctly! Sadly, I pressed the wrong button on my remote control here (turning the VCR off instead of turning the volum...

Re:Series 2 - Episode 9

Again, when they came back from Time Out, you could hear the 'Merlin appear' sound effect. I would have got the question about Theseus right. Merlin didn't give them magic because they got one riddle wrong, but he did give them some information (going left when faced with a monster). I could also ha...

Re:Series 2 - Episode 8

Notice how the 'wall monster appear' sound effect is played again, when they resume from Time Out, even though they were already in the middle of questioning! I would have got the magic tree riddle right, but only because a very similar riddle was on the Crystal Maze ;) The team got some information...

Re:Series 2 - Episode 6

If you happen to touch the bishop, you die straight away - Life Force Death. I suppose the bishop could either land on a square that the dungeoneer was already on, or the dungeoneer could mess up and walk into the bishop while making their move.

Has any team died while playing Combat Chess?

Re:Series 2 - Episode 7

Some unusual things for this episode! Even though no quest was in progress at the start of the episode, Treguard still gave a summary of the previous team's fate. Then, onto the Enter Stranger routine. It's Akash's team, perhaps one of the worst teams in the history of Knightmare ;) Oddly, they didn...

Re:Series 2 - Episode 6

ooh a death from life force running out. Mogdred enjoyed that. In fact I don't think any team has ever died from their life force simply 'running out' as such. What happened here was the team was already in losing status (having not taken the gauntlet), and entered a room from which there was no es...

Re:Series 2 - Episode 6

Many firsts today! Granitas effectively told the team which two objects to take. The fish was off, and they'd already used the apple as food, so it was pretty obvious which objects they should take! This team made the dungeoneer sidestep all the way to the right to avoid the scorpion's sting. In a l...

No, it was used in later episodes whenever a team entered Level 3. Only been used once for a death sequence though.

Re:Series 2 - Episode 5

Finally, a winning team! But I'll get into that later ;) Treguard didn't mention the Castle of Confusion in his opening speech. The team used a FREEZER spell on the catacombite, but I'm sure they actually touched the frozen monster when getting the letter! I'm also surprised the catacombite didn't g...

Re:Things you would never SEE in the dungeons...

(Sorry if these have been done before, I didn't feel like reading 13 pages of replies!) Okay, you're in a room that's completely blue, I can't see anything else so far... A goblin accompanying the dungeoneer through the dungeon, and giving hints! (did the goblins ever speak?) Mrs Grimwold in Festus'...

Re:Series 2 - Episode 4

Looking at the Ariadne scene, there is either a small web across where she walks, or a simple break in the picture. That looks like a thin piece of clear plastic (or is it blue?) that they make the tarantula walk across. The two pictures are then combined into the final scene. You'd think the plast...

Re:Series 2 - Episode 4

Yep, another knice episode from Series 2 today! Treguard said "Intruder Alert, level one!" when the viewers joined him. Perhaps this is where Lord Fear got this line from? Folly was turning around a lot in the first room. I'm surprised he didn't get dizzy =P Interesting first (and only?) use of the ...

If you're talking about the Level 3 clue room, they did actually take two objects - the horn and a very small crystal/gem thing. But there was no clue to tell them they needed the shield...

384 by 288 AVI of the Medusa scene, with sound - much higher quality than the one on Knightmare.com!
