Would you want Treeguard back in a new Knightmare?

How might you change Knightmare if a new series were to be made?

It was a play on Ed Tudor Pole, so yes it is

Yea, it would not be Knightmare without Hugo.

Nothing would replace Treguard but I can't beleive he called me a timewaster in Cliff's quest in series three

I think the crystal maze analogy is very true. It could be very bad without Hugo, ETP all over again. However, this does smack a little bit of old fans just getting a little misty eyed over the old program. If Tim Child's in charge I'm sure he'll know what's best.

My theory is be very faithfull to the original or rip it apart and start again
We are no longer the knights who say ni! We are now the knights who go Neeeow wum.... ping!

There is a difference between appropriate and apposite.  In this case, what Malefact meant was that your post was inappropriate because of its lewd content.

I thought it was quite amusing actually... ::)

And Grumphicks is right - the Knightmare format would just not work without Mr Hugo 'Ooh Nasty' Myatt. I think they should get him back, or change the format so that a new style of presenting is needed.

Easily sorted - Robbie Coltrane reprising his role as Hagrid. You know it'd work.

I recon there are some things that you just have to keep the same, the title, the idea that the dungeoner cant see and needs advisors and Treguard, he's just fundamental.

And I think its much more likely that they wont rip the old format apart and start anew because there's a risk of alienating all us ol' faithfuls...

If it aint broke, don't fix it, just make it more up to date!

;D

Who are you to talk about what's appropriate and what's not?  ;)
