This was always going to be an 'off-topic' that struggled. 'Iony'. I really can't add anything more. but then, I was useless in Chemistry (Burnt myself with one of those tapers, for crying out loud).

It wasn't a Bunsen Burner then! One of my jumpers go scorched by a couple of knice pupils, who decided to use it to remove a very hot gauze from a tripod. Charming weren't they. So I take it Rothberry weren't the only one who was bad at chemestry then I take it, other than me, who was completely useless at it ;D, I could just about get a way with what H2O is ::).

It's just the way it's written. A superscript implies some mathematical quantity being raised to a power. The subscript is used instead to avoid confusion.

H20 means two atoms of hydrogen bonded to one atom of oxygen

H2SO4 is a bit more complicated but the idea is more or less the same, with an atom of sulphur as well.

Hmm, this is the first time I've used YABBC tags. Might use them again when I want to look flash. 8)
Subject to change.

Well I did say that I could just about get away with it, didn't necessarily meant that it was the right one though. I'm glad you knew what I meant though anyway :D. Also I'm glad Malefact knew the mistake I made aswell.

If it does go to a terrestial channel, I'd like to see BBC2 pick Knightmare up, because I think it'll be most likely to find a niche there.
It's the alternative channel these days. In my opinion, C4 is rapidly losing greatness. Big Brother is the main instigator.
I like my telly scary, and very dungeonish.

BBC 2 will be looking to rebuild their 6pm slot after loing The Simpsons, Robot Wars and Star Trek.

"6-Mania" on Beeb 2 used to be the best hour on TV everynight and Knightmare could be the flagship show they need to start rebuilding

Do you really think Knightmare is suitable for BBC2's 6-7.30pm slot? Because I don't...

The thing with The Simpsons, or Star Trek, or Buffy is that people will keep watching it, even when it's been shown so many times before...

With Knightmare, you'd get decent ratings the first time, and then I guess it would tail off...

The slot's regularly been used for Robot Wars and Time Commanders in recent years, so I'd say Knightmare fits the precedents nicely.

And, if anything, Knightmare would keep its viewers more as its a serial - not stand alone episodes. People start to get involved. I think that the time is perfect. Knightmare back on dark, Friday nights in the run up to winter. BBC 2 has a pedigree with this sort of show plus the audience share would be high; the younger viewers would watch as it would be plugged on CBBC and all us veterans would watch too
