I've been trying to remember the name of this show. It aired during the 90s sometime. It logically must have been between 1993 and 1999, but I can't narrow it down any more than that. It featured 2 or 3 kids (I think there were 2 main and sometimes a 3rd) who had a computer in their attic (or possibly spare room) where a computer programmer had, at some point, been trapped inside. Occasionally an episode would be about trying to get him out, but usually it was a 'lesson of the day' style format.
There was a character named Glitch who was a ball of glowing light. The programmer had apparently made him by accident or something, though I could be mis-remembering.
I remember parts of 2 or 3 episodes. In one, one of the kids was superstitious about an upcoming sports game of some sort (soccer I think, which may mean it was an import as I'm in America), doing various rituals, and the other said that was wrong. The programmer took the stance that everything can be explained, while one of the programs whose name I can't recall took the opposing stance. It was ultimately shown that the start of their winning streak corresponded to more rituals, yes, but also to more practicing. Bizzarely the ending was 'maybe we're both right', which wasn't really what they had showed.
In another, the programmer was trying to escape. At the end he started to break through the screen but was just a fraction too late. The screen stretched in a CGI metallic effect into hand shapes, which the kids tried to grab, but then he was thrust back.
It may have been the same episode, but there was one where Glitch kept passing them hints as to why he was stopping something (possibly the escape) and the last riddle featured the line "And admit that I'm worth listening to." After much stubbornness, the programmer finally admitted "I guess everyone can say something worth hearing. Even Glitch."
I found the name once like 10 years ago but then forgot again as I didn't write it down. Anyone have any idea?
