lol, CoB is such a great trap becuase its a simple premise which causes widespread panic and so many deaths

Hey all. The ole Corridor of Blades - longest running human-killer. Yeh, the great thing about that particular puzzle was its longevity. Because of the difficulty most teams encountered, as I've argued with Dave earlier today, that's perhaps the reason for less human opposition in S4, and perhaps generally in later series too in the lower levels.

There had to have been something to made Knightmare look menacing ~ I think it starts to lose its title as purely a 'kids game' when sequences like the C.o.B rear their metallics. Raises difficulty level as well; just depended on how many members of the team pushed panic buttons. :)

Another thing about the COB is that teams who know their left from right always seem to forget that while in COB

Well, if your dungeoneer was about to get hit by a giant chainsaw blade, you'd probably panic and lose common sense too^_^

Does anyone else agree that Barry got killled in CoB in series seven. I'm sad enough to have watched over and over in slow motion and he definately got killed

It was extremely close. If they decided that there was contact, I'm sure they'd have let him proceed in order to provide the excellent series finish.

Ah yes, the good ol' Corridor of Blades...  ;D

Must say I loved the attempt of the final dungeoneer in S4... he really made it look exciting (but then again, his entire quest was brilliant)! Makes me laugh every time I watch it!

I guess his and Barrys corridor of blades quests were similar, both are debatable to whether they were killed or not and both last of season quests. I don't remember seeing Barry's quest though so I couldn't really see, but whether or not Giles was killed or not then I beleave is still debatable though!

I'd liked to seen a blade slide out from one of the side walls, just to see the dungeoneers expression:

"Hey the blade's on the other side, I should be ok. NO, WAIT A MINUTE, I'M FEELING SOMETHING SHARP SLIDE INTO MY TORSO UNEXPECTEDLY...." splaaaaaaaaatttttttt
