Knightmare Live

knightmare-live_32595_thumbA live action version of the hit 80s and 90s kids TV show sounds straight-forward enough.  However, it soon becomes apparent that in this version, Lord Fear is actually John Paramor, and the Dungeoneer is Guan Tianlang, with Mark McCormack appearing as Treguard, trying to help guide the youngster through the minefield.

If the analogy wasn’t clear enough, (trying desperately to avoid spoilers) the solution to the first word puzzle is actually the name of one of the four Majors, one of the spells given to the dungeoneer relates specifically to the slow play debate, and the plucky contestant finally meets his maker at the hands of a type of golf club (not cavity-backed if you know what I mean).

Thoroughly enjoyable stuff, four golf balls.
