Anyone who was a kid in the UK in the late 80s/early 90s will remember the genius of Knightmare. There's a new episode up on youtube … it's terrible. Really does not stand the test of time.

Gizmodo has a little more detail.

12th May, 6:28 pm

bugs is even worse than i remember. opens on a helicopter chase, in which one helicopter tries to 'lose' the other. err, you're in a helicopter. surprisingly, this fails. genius

10th May, 1:05 pm

looking for a torrent of bugs (at least season 1), but proving difficult. any ideas?

23rd March, 8:10 pm

lea points out this awesome pocky ad and the translation of the bizarre frech. japanese television is scary-awesome.

23rd March, 3:21 pm

coates is a mad unstoppable genius.someone needs to give him a bunch of money and a room without windows to make this stuff.

16th March, 2:53 pm

wired is talking about how the new dr who episode might been leaked on purpose. i don't buy it - the bbc aren't that smart.

11th March, 10:56 pm

sugarape is well mexico. only a single episode of nathan barley left. ack.

10th March, 11:18 am

the first episode of the new doctor who is doing the rounds - it's excellent. eccleston is brilliant as the doctor, and the humor is spot-on.

1st February, 9:34 am

jones thinks the battlestar gallactica remake was filmed / is being filmed in sunny vancouver. HOW COOL IS THAT?

22nd January, 9:53 pm

21st January, 12:38 am
