Other forthcoming movies that have been previewd through the spyglass.

Christian Bale leaves Gotham for Goth, and tackles the great joker that is Lord Fear in:

BATMAN : THE DARK KNIGHTMARE

And the much-anticipated follow up to Snakes On A Plane, look out for:

GOBLINS ON A DESCENDER

where you can be almost certain of hearing the line:
"Enough is enough! I have had it with these motherf***in' Goblins on this motherf***in' Descender!"

"John Boy, Cleetus and Barb!"
A bit random, but as an American I gotta point this out :P

What exactly are people named "John Boy, Cleetus and Barb" doing in Philadelphia?!

I know Exton's not Philadelphia, but Howard Johnson III might pop over for a filling or to play 'Knightmare' on Cletus' Amstrad.

Let's throw the question back at the questioner then. You're the American, Nin_Ken, so you tell us what people named "John Boy, Cleetus and Barb" doing in Philadelphia... ;)

Because that's where the USA's portal to Knightmare Castle is located. It's the ideal place for one: Treguard likes the name Philadelphia because it means brotherly love, a quality that's helped many a Knightmare team to victory; and Pickle likes it because the end sounds like 'elf ear'.

:o Now that I think about it, there are a lot of "southern folk" who go on game shows like "Deal or No Deal" ^_^;;;

And that is a LOT of screaming and crying.

I must say not only is that answer plausible, but it's adorable.


And by the way, I live in Kentucky, USA. 8)

And to think that all I was going to suggest was that they were country folks who'd won a lottery or something... think I've been rescued in brilliant style!

Nice to have you on the forum, nin_ken_dog. :)

Many thanks. I realised later on that the end of Philadelphia also sounds like "L. Fear", so the Opposition would be pleased as well.

It's much the same with Deal Or No Deal in the UK. I've never really understood the appeal. The last time box-opening was that annoying to listen to was on Knightmare, when Pixel flew out of them!

Ah, the state where instead of saying, "Let's go to KFC for some food", you need only say, "Let's go to FC for some food." ;D

I should put the hose to you for being so clever, Drassil. *pulls out hose*

Well, on the US DoND, we don't have the family members holding boxes. We have suitcases held by lovely ladies...

And we still call it KFC, because we're lazy like that :D

...You mean The Adventure Game? (only with rolling games and no guarantee any of them wouldn't have to walk home from Arg)

[...I'm still trying to work out how "The devisers shared a love of Dungeons and Dragons and wished to televise it." managed to mutate it's way into, well, green cheese, royal teapots, and light physics puzzles in space, actually, but I think I'd quite enjoy sitting in on their sessions...]

(As for Deal or No Deal, it's a game of trying to sell a commodity of highly volatile value via one dimensional negotiation. That would make it stocks and shares in gameshow form, then [Shame the UK version doesn't involve Noel Edmonds in the other type of stocks...]. It also serves to illustrate utility theory quite nicely, and there have been papers published using it as evidence. I stopped watching when the host and most of the contestants started to mistake "Ignoring the game and going away with whatever's in your box regardless of the offers" for the game. Although Charlie Brooker's review of it as Schroedinger's Boxes was entertaining.)

I've been re-watching The State Within this evening, and it occurred to me. Would Jason Isaacs make a good Treguard?

Look at the eyes. Different colour to Hugo's I know, but very similar shape! And the dancing eyebrows too.
