Re: Challenge TV 'talked endlessly' about bringing back Knightmare

When was Knightmare even on freeview regularly ? I think maybe six, seven years ago but even then it was only one or two episodes back to back. Not nearly enough to satisfy real enthusiasts of the show. :( To give you an accurate answer to your question: Challenge repeated Series 3 most recently fr...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

BeauJeau is facing woe. Despite getting his assistant Sajida to promise gold to everyone, many people are pitting themselves against him. He uses DISMISS more times in two weeks than Treguard used it in two phases, banishing a 21-strong group of nobles who stood against him. Many dungeon folk are ke...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Corbiss the Bemuser steps out a shower. Sorry for the unsettling image. It sounds like a Dallas it-was-all-a-dream rip-off too. Allow me to amend it to something more plausible. Corbiss the Bemuser steps out, a shower. This isn't the conclusion of a dream, but Corbiss has been sleeping. More precise...

Parody of Kiss Me by Sixpence None the Richer

To the tune of Kiss Me by Sixpence None the Richer (1998). Original song "DISMISS" said by the bearded master Knightmare, beside the blue blue screen Swerve swerve... there's the spinning blade Look at your shoes as the spell makes you fade, oh DISMISS away from the hearth and firelight Leaving with...

Challenge TV 'talked endlessly' about bringing back Knightmare

In a recent Twitter thread about Knightmare and how a revival could work, one tweet is particularly interesting. It's from Dom Wilkins, whose career is in TV scheduling. When I looked after Challenge we talked about bringing it back endlessly but was cost prohibitive for a small channel because of w...

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

If things go according to - what's this word? - 'plan', I hope to be at the hotel between 4 and 5. PM. This relies slightly on my ability to catch trains, navigate streets, tie shoelaces etc.

I hope that won't delay things too much.

Wishing you all safe journeys.

Keith Richards

The Saturday Review section of today's Times has a photo of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards on the cover, with the caption 'Never too old'. It reminded me of the caption competition on Interactive Knightmare in 2004, where the prizewinning caption of a picture of Beveryafraid (a.k.a. Garstang, the or...

Re: Knightmare clip at BFI event, 28th July 2019

The video clip I linked to does have flaws, but the one shown at the event was from a Challenge TV repeat. Some of the other clips had logos that weren't blurred out, such as a (poor quality) clip of Art Attack from a Children's Channel repeat. If the BFI ever does an '80s kids' TV event, I hope Kni...

Knightmare clip at BFI event, 28th July 2019

Yesterday I went to an event at the BFI (British Film Institute) called 90s Kids' Shows . Knightmare did feature, but disappointingly. Before the panel discussion was an extended compilation of clips of '90s shows (mainly children's shows but The Crystal Maze and GamesMaster were included). The Knig...

Have fun folks. I'll hopefully be able to join you all next time... This may be a cliché but it won't be the same without you. It sounds like you'll be enchanted by powerful technomagic this summer. All the best with it, and here's to your future escapes from Windows pains. Who's up for our trienni...

It has Fatilla talking to the watchers with the giant lizard behind him. Knightmare promo 1990 - Fatilla.jpg Search onli...
