Hmmm. Seems rather dead... Oh well...

Here, found this a few years ago and just had to share. It's a spoof episode of the classic kids TV show, 'KNIGHTMARE'.

It all started on Monday 7th September 1987:

As part on the channel's "Children's TV on trial" series, Knightmare looks set to feature on their look back at programmes of the 80s later on this week. It might be worth checking out not only just for Knightmare, but for any other of your favourite programmes during that decade as well!

Bolt Action Five

music: Bolt Action Five - Tree Friend Tree Foe
posted by: jim_revelator_1 in knightmare_lj

A couple of weeks ago I found this fantastic track by a London four-piece act (despite the name) called Bolt Action Five. Tree Friend Tree Foe is a tribute to Knightmare with numerous references to the show within its lyrics, and the single was actually released as a limited edition vinyl release on the 19th March this year.

You can have a listen to "Tree Friend Tree Foe" by clicking on the link below:

Also worth checking out are Bolt Action Five's Myspace (contains Dan Le Sac remix plus lyrics) and </br>BAF Soundsystem (a couple of additional remixes).

Be you tree friend or tree foe, until next time watchers....

Knightmare/Editors Song Parody

A variaiton of one of my current favourite songs, but instead using Knightmare's orignal Life Force as the focus for it's lyrics.

Knightmare/Editors - Life Force/All SparksCollapse )
Some of you may remember Editors' "All Sparks" as the instrumental version recently featured in the closing credits of ITV1's Primeval. You can hear the original song and read the original lyrics by clicking the relevant lyrics.

I will try and keep this community updated with Knightmare themed stuff on a more regular basis (possibly monthly) from now on. In the meantime, if you have your own fan fiction/art or anything else that's related to the programme and would like to share it, please do feel free to post it here. News of course is always welcome as well. As the Knightmare forum have recently pointed out, this year marks the 20th anniversary of Knightmare's debut on our TV screens, so the more ideas and themes we can come up with the better!

Until next time watchers....

Knightmare on Challenge TV

So they're re-showing some Knightmare on Challenge at the moment, at 3am (thank God for Sky Plus!). In reference to the previous post, this seems to be the series where Lord Fear starts to reach his hand into the screens where the dungeoneers are and tries to grab hold of them...I'm a little shocked to find I still get a little tense, a little edgy, when the dungeoneers don't hurry themselves to do something about it! So I guess when I was younger I must have found that bit to be scary.

Ok, rambled off there, but just wanted to let any unsuspecting fans know that Knightmare was back on the TV for a little while at least - even though Pickle is in it! :D

Hi, and thanks for taking the time to visit this new Knightmare community.

Anything relating to Knightmare is more than welcome to be discussed here, so wallow in the nostalgia and fun of one the finest children's TV programmes there ever was, and please do make your own contributions here in the meantime.

The path lies that way watchers, now get ready to begin, for the quest is on....
