It is a big shame that NKTP has gone, but with all these new KM's , people can record them from TV in crystal clear quality.

Well, it's kinda explained if you go to the site.

Hey, can we cut this out
Hey, having listened to Golgarach today I think I've found an alternative thing to start posts with to get people's attention.

So no more "hey", just...

We mustn't get ahead of ourselves, though. It has to do well, first  
I have a feeling it will do very well, I mean it came top of the Christmas Kult Selection that was shown on New Years Day,so thats a start for how popular it might be on this channel.

Also I'm curious but does anyone know how popular it was  on the Sci Fi Channel, If anyone know the viewing figures and ratings for it on that channel, then prehaps we can get a rough idea how popular it might be on Challenge ??

Hmm, there are excessive commas in the line you've quoted. Therefore it's probably one of mine.

I agree with you. I think it will do pretty well. From what I've heard, the Challenge? vote was, let's say, conclusive. And if the posters on this forum are to be believed, it wasn't merely us going to the website and voting 100 times each! On the Challenge? forums its return has been applauded by many people who don't sound like residents on this site, which is good!

I'd also be interested in the Sci-Fi ratings. However, did people through Sky and other satellite services have access to it? I remember someone saying that the only people who could watch KM on Sci-Fi were those with cable rather than satellite. Or is that rubbish created by goblins in my brain? If it was true, then the ratings it enjoyed might not be a good reflection of what Challenge? could expect to get. Additionally, Challenge? are repeating their episodes at respectable hours- the difference in timeslot could bear on ratings too.

If I can remember, when Sci-Fi repeated Knightmare the second time round (1998), they put it at 7.30am on Saturday and Sundays. Sky did not carry Sci-Fi this early, and therefore you had to have cable to watch Knightmare.

How many Serise did Sci-fi show of Knightmare?
Surely if they ran a number of serises or repeated the same serise a few a few times,  the show had high ratings, or Sci-fi won't have bothered showing it a fee times.

Sci-Fi showed all series of Knightmare during 1995/6(possibly showing episodes more than once though I'm not sure).

Then in 1998 they started repeating it again, but only got up to mid-way through Series 4 then the rights expired.
