Re: Series 1 - Episode 8

Curiouser and curiouser. That's not quite the end of the quest, though - the final conflict would then have been with the dragon, probably defeating it with a spell from Merlin. Which kind of makes sense. We don't know what a 'win' sequence from Series 1 would have looked like, but judging from Seri...

Did anyone spot Ayoade’s reference to “the dungeon master” in Medieval Zone in New The Crystal Maze this week?
Yep, I spotted it... and I laughed out loud!

Re: CHAT not working.

Knightmare Chat has existed in some form or another since about 1999, and inevitably there have been some periods of inactivity and some nights where nothing has happened. If you haven't been able to access Chat it may have been some temporary problem with the server or the applet you're using to ac...

Re: A New Chain

This is a very weak connection, I think, but it works: - Paul Eddington was in The Adventures of Robin Hood , which contained a cameo from Patrick Troughton. - Patrick Troughton was Doctor II in Doctor Who ; there are many connections to Knightmare from there, but I'll be a smartarse.

Re: New The Crystal Maze Series 2

I'm going to go with "Series 1B", just to be extra. I've been enjoying this series too, and coming to Knightmare Chat an hour later than usual in order to watch it. A lot of the teams have been rather over-the-top in terms of celebration, but some others (like the aforementioned Jury team) have been...

Re: True or False trivia question

I also remember the Falling Bridge chamber from Level 3, which I think featured once in Series 3, was also seen in Series 4 (Malice: "I see you have survived blades. Let's see if you can survive a fatal fall...").

So I also say true.

Re: Series 5 Team 3: GHOST spell

Elita could have given the team a second spell. Ben's team needed two spells to complete Level 3, so perhaps Sarah's team would have as well. An alternative analysis might be that Elita could have warned them about the upcoming Corridor, in particular tipping them off to cast GHOST before they ente...

Re: The Olden Days podcast

Don't know Avenger Penguins at all! Now that surprises me - I'd have thought you'd know about Avenger Penguins! I remember it being on around the same time as Knightmare, and surviving past its demise. As far as I'm aware, it was an American-produced show, syndicated to CITV and lasting two series ...

Re: Knightmare Geek Week Extended Episode

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it made specifically for YouTube, seeing as how (the original version) was released as part of Geek Week?

Surely they should have a record somewhere?

He was a candidate for Chelsea and Fulham Green Party in the recent General Election and his death has been reported to local party members. His local party contact has confirmed that ...

Re: Knightmare Werewolf - Weremare?

Prevents a player's card from being looked at or moved. The Gatekeeper? I was going to suggest a Blocker for this, but I like The Gatekeeper too! Looks at two cards, one after the other. If one of the cards is a goblin or gargoyle, the paranormal investigator becomes a goblin or gargoyle (respectiv...

Re: Vague memories I'm not sure happened?

Yes, in Series 5. It just popped up for a moment and disappeared again, and nobody commented on it. It seemed a bit pointless as I think it was on the screen for less than a second. It's also the only time we see a pooka in Series 5, if I remember that correctly! Likewise with the Gordon Ramsay poo...

Re: Does Smirkenorff change colour between Series 5 and 6?

I hadn't noticed this before, but now I look at it, the more apparent it becomes! My best guess is that it was something to do with the chromakey. Maybe a possible explanation is that, if the puppet was blue, it would have disappeared entirely (or at least mostly) during the keying-out process, so s...
