As you likely noticed (and I didn't until now :lol: ) for the last few months, making new posts wasn't working. Well, I'm happy to announce that the issue has (finally :lol: ) been fixed!

Apologies for the inconvenience, and happy posting!

The Heart Room / Legends is coming back!
« on: December 16, 2019, 12:12:22 PM »
Merry (early) Christmas!

“Legends of the Hidden Temple,” Nickelodeon’s classic adventure game show from the ’90s, is being revived at Quibi, Jeffrey Katzenberg’s upcoming mobile-only streaming service, the company shared on Monday morning.

The show, which was aimed at kid’s during its glory days, is now being revamped to appeal to adults. “Hidden Temple” will still preserve several of its trademark features from the original show, however, including the Moat Crossing, Olmec and the Temple Run.

Instead of being filmed at Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando, Florida, Quibi is bringing the show to an undisclosed jungle location. The challenges and the prizes are both bigger this time around as well, according to Quibi.

“Bringing back ‘Legends’ for Quibi is a dream come true,” executive producer Scott A. Stone said in a statement. “I have been so lucky to be part of this defining millennial show, and now there is a defining millennial platform to go with it. I couldn’t be more excited.”

The show is being produced by Nickelodeon and Stone & Company Entertainment. “Hidden Temple” is executive produced by Stone, who was one of the original creators of the series, alongside David G. Stanley and Stephen R. Brown.

And Nick's revival kick keeps on going:

Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures announced today a relaunch of the kids’ entertainment franchise “Rugrats.” A new animated-series revival featuring the characters from the ’90s cartoon has received with a 26-episode order from Nickelodeon; and Paramount Players, the new film division launched to develop projects based on properties from Viacom cable channels, has given a greenlight to a live-action film featuring CGI characters. Both the TV series and the movie will include new adventures with beloved characters Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Susie and Angelica, and will also introduce a new world of characters.

The show’s original creators Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain will return to the TV series as executive producers. Nickelodeon’s “Rugrats” will be produced in Burbank, Calif., with production already underway. Additional news of the TV series, airdate and casting will be announced in the coming months.

So Sports Illustrated posting a retrospective on Guts on their site today. Lots of interesting tidbits in here:

In September 1992, Nickelodeon—known then for cartoons, late-night Mister Ed reruns and its signature green slime—launched a youth-oriented sports game show, Guts, that turned 10- to 15-year-old kids into high-flying, rock-climbing superstars. Dunking, surfing, midflight-bow-and-arrowing—all of it was possible with a seemingly endless supply of bungee cords. Contestants went head-to-head in extreme versions of everyday sports, winning somewhere between 300 and 100 points at each of three preliminary-round events. ... And then came the daunting Aggro Crag.

For four seasons the show asked adolescent contestants, D-d-d-do you have it?! Now, 26 years after its debut, and with Nickelodeon staples like Double Dare returning to the small screen, Sports Illustrated spoke with Guts crew members, on-air talent and contestants about what made the show special, and how a mountain with a mind of its own captured the imaginations of children everywhere

Soundstage 18 / Double Dare coming back this summer!
« on: April 25, 2018, 12:35:45 PM »
Another year, another revival. Are you ready to take the physical challenge (again)?

Nickelodeon is bringing back its iconic game show Double Dare.

The show, which became a hit for the network when it premiered in 1986, features two teams competing to win prizes by answering trivia questions, completing messy, physically challenging stunts and, finally, taking part in an obstacle course that includes a human hamster wheel, gigantic mouth, wringer and the Double Dare nose.

Nickelodeon has ordered 40 new episodes of the show to premiere in the summer. The network says that the revival will "feature appearances from blasts from the past, longtime Double Dare fans and stars from today" to be announced at a later date.

The Heart Room / The "NickSplat!" unknown frequency episode log
« on: September 24, 2015, 02:49:08 PM »
Hopefully this'll be more frequent that T90sAAT ever was!

NEW YORK – Sept. 24, 2015 – Millennials who crave the iconic Nickelodeon shows of their childhood, including Kenan & Kel, Rugrats, Hey Arnold! and more, can rejoice.  Starting Monday, Oct. 5, Nickelodeon will throw back to the ‘90s every day with the launch of “The Splat,” a new multiscreen content destination spanning television, seven social media platforms and a dedicated web site aggregating the most loved Nick content from the 1990s and beyond.  “The Splat” will dive deep to create a retro experience filled with landmark Nickelodeon programs; classic programming stunts like Nick or Treat, U-Pick and Super Toy Run; the recreation of specific days of programming as they aired in the ‘90s; and original promos and interstitials, including the Doo-wop Dinosaurs and the Opera Lady.  “The Splat” will roar to life across all platforms on Monday, Oct. 5, launching that night on television on TeenNick from 10 p.m. – 6 a.m. (ET/PT).

Celebrating the characters and shows that are definitional to millennials who grew up in the ‘90s, “The Splat” will consist of:

TV block - an eight-hour rotating TV lineup airing daily on TeenNick from 10 p.m.-6 a.m. (ET/PT); – a fan-driven site built around social conversations;
Emoji Keyboard – a fully integrated Splat-branded keyboard featuring emoticons, stickers and GIFs;
Social Media Community – a robust social presence on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, Twitter, Vine and YouTube.

“We have been listening closely to our first generation of Nick kids that are craving the great characters and shows they grew up with watching Nickelodeon in the ‘90s,” said Cyma Zarghami, President of Viacom Kids and Family Group. “We designed ‘The Splat’ with fans and their requests in mind, which means we’re bringing together these beloved series and a high level of digital engagement to give fans a retro media experience they can’t get anywhere else.”

In creating “The Splat,” TeenNick enlisted a group of current millennial employees and formed “The Splat Pack.”  With a genuine affinity for Nickelodeon, “The Splat Pack” provides creative guidance, new ideas and helps develop content for the block.

“The Splat” TV Block on TeenNick (10 p.m. – 6 a.m. ET/PT):

“The Splat’s” rotating TV lineup on TeenNick will have weekly themes and monthly programming stunts featuring hit ‘90s animated and live-action series including All That, Angry Beavers, Are You Afraid of the Dark, CatDog, Clarissa Explains It All, Hey Arnold!, Hey Dude, Kenan & Kel, Ren & Stimpy, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Rocko’s Modern Life, Rugrats, Salute Your Shorts and The Wild Thornberrys, with additional series rolling out throughout the year.  At launch, “The Splat” will feature themed weeks and stunts like:

First Time for Everything (week of Oct. 5) – first two episodes of fan-favorite animated and live-action series and game shows;
Rugrats Reptar Takeover (week of Oct. 12) – best of Rugrats episodes featuring Reptar;
Hey Arnold! Live from the Stoop (week of Oct. 19) – Stoop Kid-centric episodes;
Nick or Treat (week of Oct. 26) – call-in event where lucky callers get 40 seconds to choose from six doors, collecting tricks and treats along the way, plus scary and spooky themed animation episodes.

Judging by the description of "First Time for Everything", the two Legends episodes should be (date/time TBD):

The Golden Cup of Belshazzar  :mrred:
Galileo's Cannonball  :mrsilver:

For their 90's night on 8/15, the Sacramento River Cats (AAA affiliate of the San Francisco Giants) will be rocking Red Jaguars jerseys against the Round Rock Express (AAA affiliate of the Texas Rangers):

Boy, I'd sure like to get my hands on one of those.  :mrred: No word if any of the other teams will be represented in jersey form, btw.

Soundstage 18 / Nick Arcade PILOT
« on: October 31, 2014, 09:41:08 PM »

With no Phil Moore, No Andrea Lively, no Game Wizards, four levels in the bonus round, blue team instead of yellow team, and a set that looks somewhat similar to Get the Picture's. Didn't even know there was a pilot in the first place!

The Steps of Knowledge / Downtime
« on: May 22, 2014, 10:20:10 PM »
Apologies for the downtime. Seems my DNS provider has some BS rule that I didn't know about which renders one's account dormant should said account not be logged into for 6 months:

Free accounts not accessed at least once every 6 months will be considered dormant and unloaded from memory.

This is meant to keep a handle on some of the long tail account buildup that has accumulated over a period of several years. I am setting up a system of graceful notifications for this. This will not apply to premium members supporting the project.

Odd thing is, that rule was enacted back in March of 2012, and this the first time (needless to say) this has happened, despite the fact that it had been way more than 6 months (until now) since I had last accessed my account. :?

I guess I might have to look into an alternative, but I'm not going to worry about that now. I'm just happy the board's back up. :D

Again, apologies for the downtime.
