4 new episodes of Red Dwarf on the way

Recommended Posts

I felt it lost it when they started filming it differently (don't know the technicalities...but it became very 'digital' and somehow a barrier popped up between the viewer and the onscreen antics).

Too right manny, just wasn't the same with all the funcy special effects.

Bring it back with the tiny-budget charm that we all know and love.

Rimmer looks old as fuck. Which is impossible cause holograms don't age.

Oh yeah, good point. I forgot he was resurrected.

maybe i;m just desperately hoping this'll be good.

also

this spoilered below me makes me think we're in for some proper hilarity in these episodes.

and they've been filming in the old comic shop from Spaced. I reckon it'll be a virtual reality kind of thing, like Back To Reality, but a bit more like Better Than Life. Carbug, though, lol

Well episode 1 wasn't funny in the slightest. It didn't feel like it Red Dwarf at all.

it was funny, i really enjoyed it:) stopped a bit too suddenly, would benefit being seen with all three episodes at once

too hard to please, some people :)

Seriously? What bits? The only bit that approached being amusing was Lister being smacked up against the screen in the background by the squid. Dialogue didn't have any of the wit of Red Dwarf.

yes, seriously, and most of it, if im honest

i've been watching dwarf since i was 6/7 (first ep i saw was Dimension Jump, if i remember correctly) , so probably a bit biased:) each to their own though, i'll stand by what i think :)

it wasn't BRILLIANT, but probably due to my low expectations wasn't terrible either!

I still think the best episode was in season 5; Quarantine! possibly the best episode of any tv show ever, every time i watch it i laugh so hard it hurts

Putting Gunmen Of The Apocalypse on straight after really showed how weak the new episode was.

Maybe part 2 will be an improvement, but last night's was pretty much as bad as I thought it was going to be.

They might go back to it, like when Season 8 just started out of nowhere with them in prison.

Mind you with only 2 more episodes of 20 minutes or so each, I doubt it.

It needed the canned laughter back so I could tell which bits were meant to be funny! Even with low expectations, that was terrible :down:

I laughed out loud once at the sci-fi shop guy 'listening to music' and the bladerunner picture bit was a pretty amusing parody. Still the whole premise of part 2 is LAZY. Bad Dave, I expected more of you but you're apparently just good for reruns! Which I like!

ep 1 of vii - after the bug had been blown up, they just skipped to the aftermath

ep 1 of iii - got a superfast star wars-type intro

red dwarf dont really do recaps, thy just skim past them; always have done

tonight was a good laugh, the guy in the tv shop though

"sci fi....it's all bollocks, isnt it?":up:

They do seem to be slowly uncovering what happened in between. The whole season 9 and 10 thing is pretty tongue in cheek, but I imagine the Kochanski story isn't going to just be thrown away.

I actually think it's pretty good. I think once you've stuck the three bits together it'll make a nice wee story, and I think this one may actually fit continuity-wise as well.

well, she did, but as kochanski

nicely kept secret that!

the blade runner stuff was a bit much, in fact it was far too much, and it being back to reality pt 2 was a bit naff

nice premise to end on though, go searching for kochanski :up:
