Is this going to be another Dave special? I wasn't mad on that, although it did get a bit better by the end.

Absolutely can't wait for this :mrgreen: :wub:. I don't care if it's shite, I just want to see more of Lister, Kryten, Rimmer and Cat. Tried to get tickets for the filming but was unsuccessful :(.

I'll admit I'd said my goodbye to Red Dwarf after season 8. It was never the same after Rob Grant left and 7+8, while having a good few episodes, never really recaptured the same feel. I was happy for it to end the way it did.

The Dave specials from a few years ago I couldn't even bring myself to finish watching. I saw the first two and had absolutely no inclination to watch the last part. I was highly disappointed. At times it just seemed they were doing impressions of characters they'd played a decade earlier. It's very much the Indy 4 of Red Dwarf for me.

Still, I'm willing to give this one final chance. It's Red Dwarf after all. Seasons 1-8 will always be a loved part of my life and I look forward to showing it to my kids in years to come.

EDIT: Just downloaded and watched the Back To Earth specials all the way through. I probably misjudged them a bit. It's certainly better than I remember thinking it was and there were a few parts that made me smirk in the way Red Dwarf does. I'm not changing my position that it probably should have been left at 8 but I'm not as disappointed in it as I was.

Epic Lol.

That is a scene that has to be read to be truly appreciated.

In the book they expand it because they spend several years there. He ends up having sex with a mountain girl.

That particular scene is described from the Cats POV.

:lol:

One of the best things the BBC ever did, the books are all brilliant as well and have more of a consistent story line to them.

Series X, really? Is this by Dave again?

Red Dwarf :wub:

Have to agree with Oblomov Boblomov. In the past I've thought there were big dips in the series, but having recently bought the box set I just love the whole lot more and more. Really excited to see this! :D

Spoilered for massive!

Also, this is a fantastic read, especially for those of you who weren't sold on Back to Earth. No spoilers either. :)

If what they said about it feeling more like series V and VI with some of II thrown in is accurate, I'll be a very, very happy camper. VII was mostly good but VIII just felt wrong, in so many ways.

I really enjoyed series 8, I thought it was much stronger than 7. It set up nicely for a 9th series getting back to basics but obviously it never happened. Being on Dave actually gives me a bit of hope as the budget should remain low which will keep the style more in line with the earlier series.

7 dipped after Rimmer left. I used to proper fancy Chloe Annett when I was 14 (still do, really) but she was no Chris Barrie.

8 at least tried to be different and the Lister/Rimmer bunk scenes were great.
For me VI remains the benchmark X will be judged on.

Some of the stuff with Lister and Rimmer in prison was great. It was a nice change, especially when they joined the canaries!
