Seems a bit random to be showing them at that time and day.

Will try and give Knightmare a shot if I ever remember.

Thanks for the reminder, totally forgot.

I recorded a few of the funhouse episodes last time, unfortunatly they were the later series judging by pat sharps short hair... i love seeing the kids faces as they are told that they have won a tennis raquet set...imagine kids faces these days....is it wii compatible?

also hoping the knightmare stuff will be shown in order....although ill have to check my planner as im guessing that that timeslot at night will have a few clashes.

Id love challenge to show older stuff like we are the champions, junior kickstart or older kids quizzes like beat the teacher and vision on...

Still don't understand why there isn't a channel dedicated to old kids TV shows.

Thumbs up to Knightmare, will be giving Fun House a miss though, never could get over Pat Sharp... it always seemed to me (probably wrongly) to be a bit like Cheggers Plays Pop, which I didn't like either.

That one specifically is liable to be vaulted as are the Jimmy Savile TOTP episodes...

one episode a week is extremely mean, considering stuff like "millionaire" gets numerous episodes a week....

We watched Funhouse last night and my missus reckons Pat Sharp might be the next one coming out in the current Pedo-gate, I hope not :(

Knightmare is great the intro animation is top notch, so glad these are getting repeats
