Trip down memory lane

December 5, 2005

I thought I would Google ‘Knightmare’ after Leonie’s comment on my last post. Can you believe there is a Bring Back Knightmare club? With a petition and everything. I mean the show finished in 1994 so the majority of people who watched it must be well into their 20’s now (yep like me). I just got a geek-walking-over-my-grave shudder.

Hope this helps cheer you up too Leonie-Lady!

    I LOVED Knightmare! It was my favourite kids program. They sometimes show repeats on Challenge, but I dno’t have Sky no more, so can’t see it now.

    I heard rumours once that Challenge were going to make new episodes, but I don’t think it amounted to anything, I wish they would. TV these days needs some trips down memory lane, the old ones were always the best (ahem look what happened when they bought back Doctor Who?)

    oh, how i wanted to go on knightmare (i still do, but id be scared)

    i used to really want to go on fun house, but i was far too worried about the big child-squashing rollers on the final bit of it. i mainly wanted to do the fun house grand prix but i didnt think i had the co-ordination to drive and get the tokens, and put them in the special bit of the car (now that i think about it i spent alot of my childhood worrying about simiar minute details!)

    i think ive seen the ‘bring back knightmare’ site before, and im not ashamed to admit it!

    I wanted to go on knightmare, I applied with some friends, but never heard. Probably a good thing, I think we would have had huge arguements about who would have worn the helmet.

    I wanted to go on Fun House, the Grand Prix would have been too much fun, and I would have loved the house and all the child squishing devices, I think it was the gunge I wouldn’t have liked. It would have messed up my hair!

    There is NO WAY IN HELL I would’ve gone on Knightmare. I seem to remember thinking it was real. And that if you died in it you actually died. In real life. Although in retrospect that does seem a little… improbable.

    Thank you, Kelly, that DID cheer me up! Not the children dying thing, though. Well sort of the children dying thing.
