    More Dwarf!

    I know there's a few fans of Red Dwarf on here, some of you may already know, but if not - 2 sets of 6 episodes have been confirmed for Dave in 2011, and set to be filmed in front of a studio audience once more.

    Any thoughts? I'm looking forward to it despite the bad critique of Back to Earth (as I actually enjoyed them for the most part)

    I must admit i loved Red Dwarf it was one of my favorite series as i was growing up, but it has been done to death by the time it got to the end of Season 5 all the jokes were being rehashed and it lost its edge. I will probably watch it for the sake of nostalgia, but i am not expecting much.

    I don't think it'll be much good any more, the earliest seasons were the best, and it got progressively worse. The last 3 parter was terrible, to say the least!

    I thought up to series 6 were great, but series 7 onwards a bit dissapointing. Hated the introduction of kachanski. A bit concerned about these new ones, back to earth wasn't great. I'll still watch em though

    Where is the confirmation of this?

    I've googled it, but there's nothing new?


    *EDIT* Apologies....just found it!!!

    Agreed! I forced myself to watch that 3 parter, but it was a case of "What the Smeg was that". (Q - Can I say that on here!)

    Sometimes it's best to leave things in the past. But I live in hope it'll be good, and I dare say I'll watch them!

    Red Dwarf has never been the same since Rob Grant left at the end of Series 6. After that it has gone down hill, Series 7 was ok...ish, 8 was awful and that 3 part thing was just painful. I might try and watch the new series but it will be nowhere as good as the original and best series 1-6.

    Still more Red Dwarf!

    Link: The cult 90s sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf will blast back on screen with Dave next year | The Sun |Showbiz|TV [Another link from The Sun: Sorry about that]

    Filming starts in the autumn.
    "We've got to recapture the highlights, like series five or six.

    "If we can hit that mark, then brilliant. There's no point doing it if it's so-so."
    I don't expect that they will 'recapture the magic' [or just insert your own nonsensical phrase here] However we can always hope?

    Funny isn't it, I don't see series 5 or 6 as their best ones. The first 4 were by far the best 4.
