It sounds like they are taking the game sufficiently seriously!

Hehehe no I wasn't XD In all truth I've only discovered Dan and Phil fairly recently and aren't really devoted to them enough to scream for them XDDD And if I were to scream, it would probably be for the KM actors instead ;D

I'm a big fan of Stuart Ashens (who also does stuff on Doug Walker's site, http://www.thatguywiththeglasses.com) but I've never heard of the others. Strange, as most of you lot who have commented seem to be the other way around!

Thanks for that! I've been wanting to know who Emma and Stuart are since I found out they were in this :)

My word those youtube channels are bad.. think I was better off not knowing who they are. *shudder* Don't bring KM down to that level, please.

Good to see it getting a lot of press and a warm welcome, pity it's had to be dumped in the environment it has.. but at least it's breathing I guess.

Two weeks and we'll get to see it... 8-o

Better have kept the same music!!!

Challenge better NOT move the time slot to an early one, other wise I wont be able to watch anymore :( Not all of us finish work at 5pm. :'(

Ashens brings nothing down. The man elevates.

HAHHAHAH not from what I saw, but if you like it good for you.

Fact is this wont be a new Knightmare episode, it's an ego trip for these young DIY youtubers, the whole ideal is going to be a bit of a joke I fear and a platform for them do be 'silly' and play for their fans not KM's. I know KM is a little camp, and comedic but this appears to be spoofing itself. Which if successful this will no doubt set the tone for the future. We'll wait and see when it airs, I just hope it's successful for the right reasons.

This is exactly what I'm afraid of & again I really hope this isn't the case, km is about the dungeon and the quest not the dungeoneers and advisors, it's a quest & again I really hope it's treated as such.

Yeah we'll just have to see.
You dream of its return for so long and when it might just happen those dreams start to turn into possible nightmares. But I am looking forward to it and it's better than nothing... and who knows.. lets give it the benefit if the doubt.

No expectations no disappointments.

I still want to see Knightmare: the movie :D

Stuart Ashens (who was the only one I knew of before the announcement!) was at least a big fan of the show in its heyday, being about 10-15 years older than the rest of his team so I'm sure he'll do it - ahem - justice, as will Isy Suttie (major KM fan who's worked songs and jokes about the show into her stand-up comedy sets in the past) and of course the original cast, so I'm quietly confident :)

I didn't see much, if any, of this.
Obviously they're much more confident than a team of 12 year olds and they come across as such. They weren't deadly serious, but then neither were many of the teams in the original run. All in all, they played to win, they didn't do anything stupid and they reacted with fright to many of the rooms and their contents, which tells me that they were taking it seriously enough.

If you're a fan, then by all means tell us why. Simply telling us he's great is not as effective. :)

He's an eloquent, dry, self-depreciating deadpan snarker who classes all ventures up with his deliciously british flavour of irony. He is absolutely perfect for this endeavour.
