Did You Know?

The character of Sheila is referred to as "Thief" only in the show's opening credits. She is never called "Thief" in any of the episodes, even by Dungeon Master (who prefers to call the kids by their titles, yet refers to Sheila by name).See more »
[the kids have had enough of Venger foiling their attempts to get home]
Eric:It's all Venger's fault! We oughtta do something about that guy.
Hank:Eric's right!
Eric:I am?
Hank:Yeah, and we ARE going to do something about him!
Eric:We are?
Hank:That's right. The only chance we have of getting out of this world is if we take care of Venger once and for all.
Shiela:But how? Nobody can stop Venger. Not even Dungeon Master!
Hank:Wrong. There's one thing that can. A dragon: Tiamat.
Eric:[shocked] You're crazy...

It Seemed Like A Good Show, 22 August 2004
Author: Ginger87 from New York City

A few years ago I remember seeing this show on Fox Kids. It came on after "Digimon" and I was to lazy to change the channel so I decided to watch it. "Dungeons & Dragons" told the story of a bunch of kids who take a ride on a roller coaster and are transported to a strange world. A good plot! This was a really cool show.

My favorite episodes were: "In Search of the Dungeon Master", "The Dungeon at the Heart of Dawn", and "Odyssey of the 12th Talisman"

Overall I really enjoyed this show and it's a shame it didn't last on Fox Kids for that long. I hope to see it again one day. I give this show 9/10 stars and suggest everyone should watch it if it returns.
