    I saw the re-run of the 'Back to Reality' episode the other night. I'd forgotten how funny Dwayne Dibbley is. The Duke of Dork rules!!!!
    Can't wait to see the new stuff.

    I've never seen one before noone has but i'm guessing it's a white hole.

    Well, I used to be a huge Dwarf fan, but, well.. I was a little disappointed by this mini series - anyone else find it a bit of an anti-climax? Or are they just building up to something a bit better?

    I found the timing to be uncharacteristically slow, the older episodes could of fitted the whole 1.5 hours into about 20mins....

    I think it would have worked better if they had shown them back to back.

    I not sure I did like the twist at the end even if a little bit odd.

    So which reality is correct one them or us?

    They repeated them back to back on Easter Monday, which is when I caught them. Thought they were pretty poor myself but then I thought the series itself got worse towards the end.

    I think the differences with the new episodes were that:

    a) there was no laughter - it made the show seem like there were awkward silences
    b) the actors have matured, so it seems unrealistic that they'd be making the jokes they did
    c) part of the fun of the originals was that some of the acting was poor. Look at Craig Charles and his acting now? He's superb. But that removes a little something from the show I think.
    d) the writers had tried to be too clever. A series of twists and turns is all well and good in a sci-fi movie, but in a three part series it makes it difficult to get drawn in, and to feel a part of the action.
    e) they try to be too serious, whilst at the same time trying to shoe-horn slapstick comedy into the show. We have scenes with crying, followed shortly by them being hit round the face with squid tentacles...
    f) what was the point of the new woman? other than for 'cleavage factor'? She barely said a thing, and then unceremoniously was killed off? Seemed pointless.

    Now, personally, I'd love to see a series that was more serious - along the lines of the novels.

    I agree, no laughter made a massive difference. It's the first thing I noticed. I don't understand why they didn't show it to a special audience prior to showing on Dave. It would of made it so much better.

    It was a shame there was no Holly too. It's interesting how it ended as I believe it's still open to future episodes. I like channel Dave a lot, but sometimes I feel it is a bit cheap in terms of production/presentation compared to other channels. I don't know how much input they had on the new Red Dwarf but it definitely wasn't as polished as the original series.

    Cost there was meant to be 4 ep which was a live episode but money stopped that and same reason not filiming in front of audience.
