I wish they'd make a new series, or repeat it :(
if they got the bald guy back.
they should remake the krypton factor
Totally apply to go on the Krypton Factor if they brought it back.
I'd suck at the assault course though.
problem solving challenges sometimes took hours to complete and were so hard it reduced contestants to tears. on tv they only ever showed a couple of minutes of it though.
One of my favourite shows as a kid.
the bald guy = Richard O Brien who wrote the Rocky Horror Picture Show
the second guy was Ed Tudor-Pole from terrible punk/new wave band Tenpole Tudor
although when I was little I got Richard O Brien confused with one of the members of Right said Fred.
was also in the sex pistols. kind of. for about one minute.
he went bald because of the bleach he used on his hair for the movie version of rocky horror.
I mean every bloody week it was a bunch of yuppies called Samantha and Julian going round trying to win a holiday which they could buy with half a days wages.
It was brilliant though.
that assault course was hard fucking work and half the people that did it didnt look like they had trained at all for it!
seemed to go on for ages, then they would always fluff up the landing.
Although there was always that landing a helicopter on the simulator thing which was balls.
I can only remember Aztec Zone ! What is wrong with me ?
Underwater (a later addition, replaced the future zone)
Wasn't it "amusingly" called Medievil Zone though... or am I just imagining things?
replaced industrial, and not future.
i am SO COOL.
was incredibly sinister.
my favourite was the underwater zone.
I miss it
at that adam and joe one! :D
"To release the crystal, complete the picture of billy crystal!"
the way they say 'bastard' that cracks me up.
Staple Channel 4 childhood viewing
That and Treasure Hunt.
My uncle was on the Krypton Factor once :-)
the crystal dome was actually a bit of a farse. the tickets would just get caught on the sides of the dome, so the contestants would pick them off the floor. so they had to shoot extra shots of the contesants pretending to jump up and catch the golden tickets. FACT!
o' brien >>> tudor pole.
also, aztec zone was the best.
It went a bit shit when they got rid of Industrial Zone, though. That Ocean one just didn't compare.
The Krypton Factor was great too, does anyone remember the last series of it that they made? With the original guy (Burns?) and the GMTV woman co-presenting? It was WELL shit compared the original series of it. I liked the obstacle course.
a Crystal Maze indoor game at the local bowling complex, along with a Lazer Quest. It would be just like the TV programme only without real crystals or real gold tokens, or a real life presenter.
It was amazing!!! They had a rope ladder across the snake pit that was awesome. You never got sent to any of the good ones though, you always got some stupid computer screen with a load of questions.
the ball keeps rolling
who was on the crystal maze. One of the teachers recorded it and would play it at the end of term so we could laugh at the retarded games he had to play.
basically an excuse for channel five to show melinda messenger and some dwarves.
started at 7
I only saw the last 3 minutes : (
It saddens me that I haven't seen one for a couple of years. Also, you'd occaisonally get the skin on your hand caught in the sphere thing when getting over-excited and spinning it too enthusiastically

I managed to catch it on Sky a few weeks back and it reminded me of how flipping amazing it was. They really should mae a new series. I think I'd apply to go on it anyway. It's probably better than most of the crap they make now, gameshow wise anyway.
is playing at a ball here in Oxford in May, the theme of which is 'the crystal maze'. They're going to have all 4 zones, the crystal with the golden tickets, AND Richard O'Brien will be there, amongst many other things.
It will be amazing. Mainly as I'm getting paid to go :)
