I think it's wonderful that KM is back on Challenge, especially now the channel's available to everyone :D

Lots of new fans, and potentially lots more people joining this forum :)

I might pop in after the episode, if anyone else is there. Maybe someone could promote it on the KM Facebook page that evening? Might be worth mentioning the forum as well!

The promo can also be seen on YouTube:

As can another bit of Treguard continuity that I caught on TV yesterday:

And I love this tweet from Challenge:

"we have mullet wigs & helmets of justice in the office today in excited anticipation of #funhouse & #knightmare tonight @ 10pm!"
I demand photographic evidence. ;D

Loved their life force clock countdown all this week on Facebook too!

I wonder if the good folks at Challenge have seen the Treguard Mix? It's the perfect occasion to revisit that video!

Yes ! Saw it back today, and it's been so long since it was last on Challenge TV I couldn't even quite say when it was. This is great news.

It's on at 10-30 tonight, about 20 minutes away, and needless to say will be watching, but only 30 minute broadcasts ? I was hoping at least a double bill or two back to back episodes ? :-/

You won't see much if they're only going to put one episode on at a time, but that complaint aside, this is great news to finally have it back. ;)

I'm really looking forward to seeing this back on again, as never got to see the original broadcasts on Challenge, and last time viewed on television would have to go back to when the programmes were actually shown on TV back in the early 1990s.

Looking forward to watching again tonight, but they really could of put on an hours long show for this or back to back episodes, but it's really good to see it back again.

They've put Fun House back on again, I saw, as well ! 8-o

I just responded to this, went to post, and was asked to log-in, when I already was, and then lost all my work and couldn't get it back again. >:(

Tried to say, watching the repeat now, and I'm a little upset that it's only shown once a week now, that is - (without repeats), one episode a week, and if you take the adverts out of it, you're lucky to get a 25 minute show. If they've brought it back again, at least have at least two or three episodes, either back to back, or on different days of the week. All you get is one 25/30 minute show, once a week, and there really isn't much to see. I don't know how often it was featured on Challenge before, but one episode, once a week(now), doesn't leave much for anyone to see. :'(

They could of featured it again, a bit more often, since they took the trouble to bring it back again. Guess I am a little upset about this.

Oh I can't really tell your upset! Yes I share your frustration, it's a pain there is only 1 episode a week at the moment. But maybe when series 2 starts, Challenge may show 2 a week, I'm sure that's what they did last time Knightmare was shown.

Well, one episode per week is what is was originally aired as :)

Isn't that just the industry standard in order to maximise peoples' viewing and advert exposure?
