    Red Dwarf X

    So, is anyone else getting rather excited about this? From what I hear, it's back to the old skool style Red Dwarf complete with laughter soundbytes! It has to be better then the last 3 episode "Back to Reality" special.

    I love old comedy especially Red Dwarf but nothing rarely is like how it used to be

    even the old stuff hasnt aged well i watched them all on dvd a while back and diddnt find any of it as funny as i did when it was new. Sometimes its best to leave things in the past and back to reality was a good example of that

    I disagree! I recently watched the first 3 series' on DVD and still found them great entertainment and was laughing all the way through! I guess it's down to personal preference and how funny you find a certain routine/clip after watching it X amount of times. I'm big into repeats though. I'll happily re-watch a series once/twice a year if I enjoy it. Over the years, I must have raped Dad's Army beyond belief! (Metaphorically speaking)

    Plus, even series 7 and 8 hold up rather well as top class comedy when you compare them to - well, just about anything that's labelled comedy these days.

    The "Back to reality" ones were awful! I watched the first one with my wife and said to her "it's not in front of an audience, there's no laughter", she pointed out that perhaps it was in front of an audience and they were finding it as funny as we were........ I really hope this new one is back to the original first six series. Seven and eight are watchable for me, but I prefered the original Kochanski!

    Totally, been waiting ages for this and honestly can't wait.

    As long as we don't get none of that "comedy gone too far" complaints

    So according to Ganymede and Titan (fan club magazine thingy) it's looking DAMNED good. Scriptwriting is of the Series 5/6 era with some series 2 thrown in. Actors like they've never been away. It's actually apparently very very funny.

    I'm so looking forward to this I'll be spinning my nipple nuts every day 'til release!
