    Anyone into Red Dwarf here?

    If so, and you don't already know, Series 9 has just been confirmed, filming next year
    Full blown series too, not a 3 part special or owt

    Happy days, as a huge fanatic myself!

    Woo! More Red Dwarf is always good. Wish they'd give them a decent budget though.

    Aye would be nice, but like the early series a budget isn't always necessary. Trouble is, it's very difficult to be original these days - but it's not hard to get a chuckle from the older comedians who know the business rather than the chuff we call "comedy" these days

    Thanks for the heads up. I thought the RD special on Dave was the last and it was a let down! Missing the all important canned laughter too, makes all the difference

    Worth noting there was never any canned laughter in any series of RD.
    Closest it got was "semi canned" in series 8 - real laughter track from a showing. And yes, original cast

    Cool!
    I'm a fan of Red Dwarf. Series 1 was brilliant and that was done on a real low budget.
    I didn't enjoy the 3 part special that they did on Dave. I missed the canned laughter that was present in all the other episodes.
    Wonder if we will see Red Dwarf's Parallel Universe again?

    Ive always been a huge fan and surprisingly loved the special! The bladerunner parody was brilliant.

    If they can get it to be similar in cinematography and style to series 3/4/5 I will be very happy as in my opinion they were the best, not to cheesy and cheap but cheesy and cheap enough to work!

    Dave, not the BBC made the 3 parter.

    More budget, red dwarf was always on a shoe string budget originaly and is by far the best of the dwarf. When they rereleased it on dvd with the special effects re done was sacrilege to the series!!

    Good news on the new series tho!!


    theres no kind of atmosphere, we're all alone more or less...

    Here here.

    As much as i love the Dwarf, it has past it's sell by date. Let us watch the brilliant re-runs of the first 7 series and just pretend it finished after that.

    I bought series 8 on VHS yeas ago and it didn;t have any laughter, canned or otherwise. I found myself not finding it funny at all. Sometimes canned laughter is needed. I suppose it works on the principle that laughter can be contagious. Ever heard someone laugh uncontrollably and knot know why, yet ended up doing the same?
