Storyline

Children game show series telling the adventures of teams set out for a quest in a "Dungeon and Dragons" settings. The three-level Dungeon is set in an electronic world where the person actually going into the Dungeon would have to wear a helmet and will have his three advisors telling him what to do. Generally the quest was for either the cup, the sword, the shield or the crown and helping them was Treguard, the Dungeon Master and helped by Pickle and Majilda. The team usually come up against Mogdred and in most of the later series Lord Fear. The Dungeon is filled with people and things can either hinder or help the team defeat the "opposition" plans in an attempt to reach their object or the goal of their mission...

Staple Friday teatime viewing during my formative years...
11 May 2002 | by Howlin WolfSee all my reviews

I would venture to suggest that there has never been a kids game show made that tops this. From the inventive - and highly advanced for its year - concept, to its generous contribution to the morale of out-of-work actors who didn't mind dressing up in ridiculous outfits, the format was a winner on all levels. It became something I looked forward to without fail to kickstart my weekend. The puzzles actually took some thought, and the idea that three players guided the one who couldn't see past the end of his nose meant it must have been fun to play whether you were experiencing or controlling. The bloke who presented it was always a bit sinister as well, must've been the beard...

A kind of live-action "Dungeons & Dragons" then, only infinitely more entertaining than sitting in front of a computer. It's one of my fondest favourites from childhood, and will hopefully be remembered long after Virtual Reality has become a commonplace element in all our lives. This program was very 'funky' indeed.
