ARGH! Challenge Stopped It!

Post by TuragaNuju » Wed Mar 22, 2006 11:02 pm

How could Challenge stop showing Knightmare!?!??!?! HALF WAY THROUGH SERIES 1!!!!!!

If they don't bring it back soon, I feel I may slip into a temporal disruption :(

Look - they made the Pooka cry. :'(

Woah, woah, hang on...thought they'd only stopped it until April 1st?!

I hope it comes back soon. I need to record the Series 4 episodes I missed in February before the rights run out at the end of May.

Hi there I'm new!

I was alarmed too when challenge seemed to stop knightmare out of nowhere yesterday. I asked what was going on at the Challenge TV forums and got this response:

>>Sorry about that, but Knightmare has been in the schedule nearly forever mostly at weekends but lately stripped weekdays, we want to give it a break, it will come back later in the year.

‘Later in the year’ is a bit vague but at least it isn’t gone forever.

My latest blog entry has some heavy Knightmare content for those who are interested (it's quite long and eccentric): http://chloepaintings.squarespace.com/

They definatly should have rested Takeshi's Bleeding Castle, how many versions are there now and it's been on alot longer then Knightmare, shown more times then Knightmare and it most likely as stale now as the Crazy Frog craze.

It is totally daft for them to stop half way through a series. ANY series, much less Knightmare!

While Challenge is good for viewing old game shows that I watced back in 80's and early -90's (Bullseye, Krypton Factor, You Bet), I do feel that Knightmare has got a raw deal!

While the show is almost 20 years old and hasn't been broadcast for nearly 12 years, new fans keep coming with the reapeats.

Do you only play half a Beatle album because you've heard it before?

I do hope it comes back on. I try not to watch my original tapes, as my series 1 tape is almost 19 years old.

Plus, there's just something about watching it on TV...

I'm 25 and I was the right age for Knightmare but didn't watch it with consistency as a child, I was intrigued and a little bit scared rather than loyal.

I appreciate it much better as a grownup. It's a visionary piece of television and it was just beginning to be a solid part of my routine!

I'm an artist/illustrator and there might be some Knightmare-related paintings in the offing. Possibly wall monsters.

Below is a link to my work if you want to imagine what liberties I might take with Treguard's beard:

wow- someone a bit arty- kinda like me!
I tend to draw modern trains and railways alot though.

Anyway, I'm desperate to see series 4 again (and all the old pookas) but I'm worrying because they aint got the rights anymore have they???

I missed out on that last time around. Watched series2, 5, 6, 7, and 8 but only mondays-fridays!!!

Watching east-asians getting things pelted at them and watching the looks on their faces may have been a good concept but it's a bit tiring to watch now!!!
Especially when it's like 7.57am and you want Knightmare to come on!!!!

oh, and that one-account advert drives me mad!!!
It comes on every commercial brk!!!!

Hi djoska!

The TV man at the challenge forums relented a little bit in light of the the cries of the knightmare fans it seems:

http://www.challengetv.co.uk/forums/sho ... eadid=8539

he said:

>>Ok, series 4 only will be May 2nd-23rd at 2900, weekdays.

obviously he lives in a world of his own where there must be at least 30 hrs in a day..

2900??

twenty-nine-hundred hours??

Right, I guess he means 1900 and not 0900, which would have been better!
(I even checked the link to see if it was your typing error but it weren't!)

Thanks for that!

Ok, that's good news. I really wanna complete my Series 4 collection...and this'll be the last showings on Challenge.

I'm guessing 0900. That's actually better than 1900, as you don't get annoying voiceovers and credit squeezing at that time.

I thought that about the 2900 hours thing. Perhaps it'll be broadcast in a dimension beyond conventional time.

But in that case I'd like to know how I'm supposed to set the video. How hard is it to read the sentence you've just written?

This all goes to show how arbitrary the Challenge channel's scheduling is.
