Red Dwarf

Recommended Posts

I enjoyed it, will have to see if I want to watch it repeatedly like I do series 1-6, never gone back to any of the Dave stuff after watching it through once but I thought this was better than what I remember of X.

That was...pretty good! 

Spoiler

Kryten couldn't be more fried if he was a Mars bar living in Scotland

:lol:

Good to have it back, though the clapping really should have gone from this and other sitcoms by now.

 

I don't think Red Dwarf would feel right without the audience. Hell, it didn't quite feel right without a live audience! It's all about the timing.

 

I enjoyed the episode, although I think it trailed off a bit towards the end. It started very strong indeed, and hopefully it's a good sign for the rest of the series.

It's made for peanuts, it's not very funny, and everyone is old and fat. But I'm glad they still get together every few years to make this.

I enjoyed it. Some good gags (the kryten one in particular was top notch). It's just good to everyone back and have some good laughs on TV even if I did watch it on the internet (which is a really stupid idea by dave).

Just the first I think. They did the same with Go 8 Bit.

I bloody hope so! Red Dwarf is a sit down in front of the TV program for me.

There's nothing funny in some places where they laugh though, like when they came out of the clothes shop. What was the joke there exactly? The audience found it all very amusing but I must have missed where the actual joke was.

 

It was Red Dwarf but it's all SO familiar now, the scripts, the jokes, the plots, it all feels like it's been done before. Watching episode 1 felt like I was watching a repeat, except they'd somehow got digitally old and fat since it was first aired 20 years ago.

It's just all too wacky for me now I think.  There doesn't seem to be any of the sarcastic edge that the previous ones had, or the occasionally interesting sci-fi concepts they dealt with.

 

Hopefully episode two is better!

Yeah, it's alright. I'm not finding it funny, but it's like a comfortable old dressing gown, so it's nice to watch. I could watch more of it.

 

Kryten's really porky.

Which is the Kryten one?

Spoiler

The mars bar or the nipple nuts?

I didn't find either funny. Obviously humour is all subjective, but there were only a couple of parts that even raised a smile, let alone a laugh. As I said though, I'm happy to watch more of it purely for nostalgia reasons.

Both were good for me but the later was top notch for me.

Oh he looked a bit fat at one point because of the fake chest he had to have for the gag. Also he is old as well. Can't help that.

I have to admit I did enjoy it. I'm hoping they get a bit of mileage out of the fact that Lister, the last human alive, is getting older and older (as is the last member of the Cat race!), whilst Rimmer will effectively go on forever.

What do you mean "without a live audience"?

 

There is a live audience.

As a scottish guy who has heard that joke millions of times over the last twenty years I thought it was the episodes hackiest joke.

What PK said. Season 7's episodes were recorded without a live audience, after which audiences were shown completed episodes for their recordings. Everything feels a lot more subdued to me as a result, and the actors clearly weren't enjoying themselves as much either. 

 

Thinking about it, I don't think Back To Earth had an audience track at all. That's probably the least of its problems though.

Oh right. Well this series and the next were both filmed in front of a live audience.

Indeed, as did X. To be clear, I was responding to SpagMasterSwift's comment that there shouldn't be a live audience. I like the live audience!

btw. Enjoyed the night out but the ep I saw being filmed was genuinely awful. One of the worst jokes Ive ever heard was used as the centrepiece of the final section
