First I heard, they were getting David Tennant to do it.
Then I heard Richard O'Brien was back.
Then I heard he's only a secondary host.

I'm not sure what'll be happening, if I'm honest..

Tonight (Sunday 16th October 2016) at 9pm on Channel 4

I'll be watching (or recording, to watch later at some point).

Wasn't going to bother... but it's Sunday and there's nowt else. No idea who any of those people are, except for the one who's on Mock the Week sometimes although I still couldn't give you name.

Bottom left is Sara Cox. A Radio 2 DJ. She used to live on a farm behind my old school, rode her horse around the village, and went to school with my older sister.

When my sister got to play for England's Women Rugby team, she rang Sara Cox on the radio and asked her "Do you remember me, from school?"
.. At which point, Sara completely leathered into my sister, calling her out as the school bully, and having made her life hell.
My sister didn't find it anywhere near as funny as the rest of us did.


I used to have an MP3 of that, but .. No idea where it's gone. It's gotten lost over the years.

Tiny set!! Tiny!!!
Really makes you realise how fucking huge the original sets must've been.

Half the damn games could be played just by reaching through the windows!!

Yeah, I'm watching it now.

The presenter really is trying hard to be Richard O'Brien - and failing miserably. The sets are too small and the games so far have all ben based on old ones.

Even the crystals are smaller.

Shame.

But... At least it came back. Hopefully it will lead the way to a proper series with nornmal people, not "celebs".

I'd heard originally there was to be a series with David Tennant as host, hence the opening gag about "the guy who used to be the Doctor."
No idea if that's still happening, but it'll be pretty disappointing if they continue to use these tiny sets!

Fwiw, the tiny sets were provided by the actual "you can go and play it" Crystal Maze Event thingy.. I think it's in London, or something.

Well, I have hope, but I won't hold my breath.

I didn't like it. Presenter tried to be Richard O Brian, ended up being Harry Hill. The games were crap - most were too easy which was sadly offset by stupid contestants.

I can't even remember what happened in the dome. I lost interest when he gave them an extra crystal "because reasons".

I have no idea what anybody is talking about, but have a feeling I am not missing anything.

Crystal Maze was a classic British game show which when it was on, was pretty much something else and everyone wanted to have a go!

Thanks Dabz. I tried to give it a fair shake, but I could only make it through 10 minutes, but my one kitten, Shadow, did watch all of it.

The puzzles were old for the same reason the set was small. They filmed it at a 'Crystal Maze Experience' place, where you can book events such as birthday/stag parties etc.
I really doubt they kept the real set up for twenty years unused.

The old set, in the "Aces High" aircraft hanger, was demolished around '99.

If they do indeed move ahead with a full series, it'd be nice to see them attempt to rebuild a full set.

OK...

They have my interest, can they keep it though?

Also in that article...

The new series will be filmed at a purpose-built maze in Bristol that's being created by the original Crystal Maze designer James Dillon and spans over 30,000 square feet


We knew that, but it's nice to see it in writing

The canned laughter is... um... different. But if it means we have to put up with it to have the Maze back, then it's a small sacrifice. Bring on the Crystal Dome!

Nah, the laughter was definitely the Last Leg audience. The actual show will be without it.
