TV: Knightmare – it’s back!

July 24th, 2013

Yes! Knightmare – The show I recently described as “where a strange man blinds children, puts them in hazardous situations and makes them get food and “potions” from strangers after manipulating them is coming back (source The Guardian and Den of Geek). It’s only going to currently be a one-off for YouTube’s Geek Week (4th to 10th August), but it is being produced by Tim Child (the original producer) and will star Hugo Myatt as the unforgettable dungeon master Tregard : so we can all once again be “welcome[d] as watchers of illusion to the castle of confusion”.

This “New Episodes” follows CITV’s “Old Skool” week early this year where they aired a few episodes of Knightmare and a recently Knightmare Live project (actually to take place 31st July to 25th August).

It’s probably a bit late, but YouTube/Tim Child please please please take these 3 simple requests in to mind:

1) Don’t bother with the EyeShield. It was a terrible idea. It took people out of the dungeon (so where, exactly, were they meant to to be escaping from/conquering?) and just “padded” the show causing viewers to sit and wait.
2) Please don’t try and do the “Knightmare VR” style or the one without the advisor: some of the best bits were misunderstandings between the Dungeoneer and the advisors (from right and left confusion to advisors forgetting things)
3) Keep it difficult. Please don’t dumb down things like the Wall Monsters Riddles – they were fun to try and work out and often ended with smacks to the head of “Of course!”

YouTube: Axis of Awesome Four Chord Song

December 18th, 2011

I’ve found a YouTube video I’ve been hunting for for a few months now – “Four Chord song” by Axis of Awesome: basically, they don’t think they’ve had a hit record because they’ve never release a single with a song with these four chords which are used in practically every popular beat combo:
