Off topic, I'm going to talk about Knightmare. :p
My favourite series, it rox0rZz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111
Good things: Grimaldine, Goth, Lissard, Lord Fear's witty dialogue (start of series 7 was the best bit ever), Hordriss' parts, longer quests, more detailed storylines, Shellphone network - 2 winning teams (Barry rocked, Julie was OK). Ah Wok!! Rothberry. Smirkenorff. The ending was totally fantastic. POOKAS!!!
Bad things: Majida (nothing against her, she was just a bit annoying), long Eye Shield sequences.
Good things: Very nice graphics, Lord Fear's new environment, Linghorm, Marblehead, Great Mire and Miremen (rocked). Like the bits on the ship, they were very very good. Lord Fear still funny, but not as much as last time. Liked Eye Shield graphics. Smirkenorff.
Bad things: Quests tended to drag on a bit. Rothberry only appeared once. No Ah Wok. Honesty Bartram annoyed me, Lord Fear's skull helmet was a bit annoying. It was dumbed down a bit, seemed more childish (perhaps). No pookas.
The thing I don't have against Series 8 is the short cut with Dunstan's quest. A lot of people seem to have trouble with this but personally I can't see what the fuss is about. Yes, it may have cut the challenge short, I agree. However, not many teams managed to survive the Corridor of Blades which is an achievement in itself! I didn't like Oliver's quest where he got into Level 3 in five minutes - that was bad.
I think the production team should have let Dunstan and co. go on into Level 2, that way they might have finished their quest at the end of the series, nicely coinciding with a cool ending akin to the end of Series 7. Now that would have been good...
...but it didn't happen.
