HURRAH for a new series, will be great to judge this one again.  Must say Id have liked series 1&2 but I suppose beggers cant be choosers.

Another Dungeoneer arives it must be the season for it.  Hello.

Then our badgering and persistant comments on the C? forums seem to have done the trick.  ;D

Seriously, however...There is no reason for anybody here togo over to Challenge and suggest a new series as yet. We've got what we wanted, and now we should let the other 'viewers' have their moment in the sun again.  ;)

Moderation is the key...easy does it.  ;)

Isn't it just sir. Hehe, you part-time fan, you!

I remember vividly when the announcement was made for the showing of S4 in April, for a group of us were in the final days of the RPG filming, and nobody had access to computers or anything - and when Emii went home, I think it was, she sent the news through. Gave Ali, the creator of our interactive quests, a big hug. Clentched fists, celebratory shouts were the order, at least from me.   8)

And now, I was lolling around on the KM and Challenge forums to get the news first hand - and feel totally over the moon about it - it's so like we're making a difference! There's a real feeling of our influence now. Great stuff, absolutely fantastic.  8) 8) 8)

Indeed. :)

Three series of Km shown inside of a year. Not only is this great for us (well, those of us who have Challenge!  ::)) in the short term but it's strengthening the general fan base, and raising Km's profile - which is exactly what is needed now that a new series is being developed. :)

Absolutely. Have always thought, and perhaps once or twice said, on the prospect of the DVD releases, that KM can be absolutely huge, because of this extra time that's passed, which means KM keeps all of its existing fans, now a little 'older' than the program was originally designed for, and now it can catch up on that mini-generational gap, attracting lots and lots of young people, who either missed the chance to see it, were too young back then to see it, and fans who can reignite their passion for the show.

So right on the importance of grabbing popularity for the new series that are being produced. Can all be absolutely massive, and wouldn't we be proud to see that happen?

Heh, I just want September over. Oo

Post by WhiteFloatingSkull » Sat Aug 23, 2003 12:42 pm

It's gonna be shown in October, so we have a good month to just relax, suffer selective amnesia, and re-watch every episode between here and then.

Challenge, the Floaty White Skull is now appeased - go in peace.  :-X

This is super, though I'm going to uni in september and probably won't be returning in October. I'll have to get someone at home to tape it!!

If series 1 and 2 are left out- there's always a chance they'll come out on dvd. One has to hope.
The only way is onward, there is no turning back. Oooh nasty, didn't realise the road ended there!

It's possible that they view series 1 and 2 to be prototypes of a kind - where everything was still being worked out and that by series 3 the show had found its feet. As a result, I'd imagine that they'd only get series 1 and 2 when all the others have been exhausted and there is still demand.

As for what happens after ALL the series are shown and there is still demand... well, who knows? ;D

Well, i really wanted Series 2 instead of 5 but it's still great news, though I have to get some new tapes.
Annoying, I was on this section of the forum for a long while before I noticed this topic, damn tired eyes!
