So, how has the new series gone down with you guys? I’ve just re-watched the fifth episode, and I have to say that it’s been going pretty well so far. It’s not as heavy with laughs as the earlier runs, but it’s gotten better since the first episode of this season. It seems… calmer than previous series, less science-fictional elements. Honestly, this show has covered so many genre bases since it came out in 1989 it’s kind of hard to pigeonhole this run of episodes. I just wish there were a few more jokes thrown in.
I loved the episode with the ship that bio-prints its own crew as needed – fantastic concept, and some kinda queasy bottom-of-the-gut laughs thanks to the “paper jams”. That’s my favorite Red Dwarf outing in many, many years. I laughed out loud quite a bit there.
