: Not to rush off to a new topic, but I've heard that, if the show
: had been renewed for a fourth season, it would have been quite
: different. What little I've heard was that with Venger out of
: the picture, the kids would have been less dependent on their
: Weapons to solve problems.
: Does anyone have any thoughts on that?
: I know that there've been reports (probably second-hand) that
: the kids would have been transported to a part of the Realm (or
: maybe another fantasy world) based on the "Oriental
: Adventures" rules for AD&D, and that Bobby and Uni would
: have been written out (or maybe Uni turned into a pony).
: (Uni's being dropped would probably have made a lot of people
: here extremely happy.)
I too remember reading that if the show had been picked up for a fourth season, at the end of "Requiem" Bobby would have been the only one who elected to go home, and the others would have stayed.
(Does anyone else have a problem with that? To go for three years desperately trying to find a way home, and then when it's handed to them, they almost unanimously say, "Nah, no thanks!" I mean, really?)
Uni was supposed to go away at that point, and the rest of the kids were to continue on their adventures while becoming less reliant on the Weapons. I don't recall what was to become of the newly redeemed Venger or Dungeon Master, and unfortunately I can't find the interview where I first read this.
I agree, I would have loved to see more episodes, and it would have been a very refreshing change to have a plot other than the kids repeatedly being thwarted in their attempt to get home even though they just saved the Realm again. I'm just not sure that this is ultimately the route I would have liked it to take. I'd want to see some sort of Big Bad creating the overriding conflict and interest in the show, and with Venger no longer a threat, who would that be? The Nameless One himself? Who's left that Bad Venger hadn't already squashed?
