: I have to agree with you; my first impressions of Dungeon Master
: were not too complimentary. Venger may have been "The
: Force of Evil" (something that he never called himself;
: unlike Skeletor or Mumm-Ra,) but at least he did not kidnap a
: group of children from their world to fight his battles. And
: speaking of children . . . .
: I do get the impression that the writers never quite thought out
: that part of the story. They might have had works like
: "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" in mind; the
: difference was that, in the Chronicles of Narnia, the English
: children visiting Narnia generally embraced their role (except
: for Eustace at the start of "The Voyage of the Dawn
: Treader"), seldom or never showed signs of homesickness,
: and understood what they needed to do.
: I wonder whether the redemption of Venger was partly due to
: Standards & Practices; the only two final ways to deal with
: him would have been death or reformation, and death wouldn't get
: past S&P, so reformation it was.
: I don't know if we will ever find out just how much the series'
: writers were constrained by the Standards & Practices
: imposed on them by the networks and their sponsors.
: A third possible solution to the "final episode"
: problem might have been to depict the Young Ones thwarting
: Venger's "Grandest of Schemes to conquer The Realm,"
: and escaping to home before Venger could stop them; leaving
: Venger defeated, humiliated, yet very much alive and
: Still trying to gather my thoughts regarding Venger and evil . .
