All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

The Sun reported today that a new series of Red Dwarf is being planned for release next year on Dave (a British digital TV channel)

Red Dwarf returns

I'm very much looking forward to this. I liked the three part special they made in 2009 (which I understand was very much hit and miss with a lot of fans) so hopefully this new series will be good too.

Though the article doesn't say it, judging from the comments section Kryten might be back too. I hope so, since I enjoy the intereactions between him and Rimmer soooooooo much icon-ironhide.gif

Fantastic news! I wonder if they're going to tell the stories in between Season VIII and Back to Earth or if they're going to pick up where Back to Earth left off.

Actually, knowing Red Dwarf, they'll probably jump forward again and have more missing time. icon-fire.gif

While I want to see what happens in seasons nine and ten (which they mention in back to earth.) and I want to see what the new, self confident, proactive lister is capable of (from the end of back to earth.) I... wonder... what missing time? I mean, sure, it been years since they did season eps, and they jumped a lot for back to earth, but they were trapped on a ship in deep space, a ship running entirely on automatic. There was nothing TO do. You want an idea of what happened, I think we should just record a welfare apartment building and splice in a star background in the windows.

Actually: I want them to pick up where they left off of season 8. I know not a lot of people liked it as a whole but the end was pretty epic. Lister, Kat, Kryten and Kachanski escaped into the mirror universe, Rimmer literally facing death on a dissolving red dwarf and the rest of the ship's complement escaping on anything that holds air... I want to see them connect that to back to earth.

I thought Back to Earth was great. I was worried going in, based on what I had heard. It was pretty classic Red Dwarf though, well character wise. The ending was great. I read something, that said if they were doing another series after Back to Earth they would like to do it afterwords with them trying to find Kochansky.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Dear gods no.

Just let it die already. Back to Earth had maybe one good gag, looking lost and alone. The later seasons were crap. And on rewatching, maybe it's because I've seen some of them too many times, but it's just not that great.

New series, 6 episodes, showing on Dave in 2012 (good bet is approx April). Confirmed cast are Craig Charles, Chris Barrie, Danny John-Jules and Robert Llewellyn. Filming starts November 2011, maybe in front of an audience, maybe not. Likely going to be 30 minute eps in Dave's 40 minute slots (with ads).
Here's hoping it's a corker - I felt let down by Back To Earth, mainly because without a laugh track the show was really... quiet.

Fully agree on it feeling quiet. Overall, I liked Back to Earth in and of itself, but it didn't feel much like dwarf due to part two was just WAY too self aware and smug (which is saying a lot) and left me liking it a lot less after the otherwise great part 1. Part 3 was soso, but not bad.


I just hope we get Kristine back, and we can get Dwayne and Polymorph for fun too icon-fire.gif

Oh god no.. Not another Dave produced Dwarf series. Back to Earth was like a painfully unfunny work of fanfiction put onscreen using actors who didn't seem like they wanted to be there. I don't recall laughing at any point through it and the constant plugs for Dave were excruciating.

I suggested the same thing last night and damn near lost my life for it. There is a dislike of Hattie Hayridge in some of the die hard fans. I mean, understandable since the dynamics works better when its literally an all male crew, besides: norman Lovett's head is basically pure sex.
