I’m sure there are those people out there who think that the new seasons aren’t as good as the early ones and therefore have already decided to not watch them. There’s always a small contingent of folks like that with every fandom. But how can anybody, no matter how jaded a fan, look at that last photo and not want to watch? There is no possible way.August 6, 2017 at 9:40 am #20763
I gave a friend of mine holy hell for missing last year’s episode with the 3-D-bio-printed crewmember because of that mindset. I’m sorry, that gag was hysterical.
I’m all in for more Red Dwarf. We’re lucky they’re still making them.August 17, 2017 at 12:29 pm #20953September 22, 2017 at 10:30 am #21370
Thursday, October 12. Oooooh, sci-fi comedy throwdown! Red Dwarf vs. The Orville!
I have added Red Dwarf XII to the calendar.
Man, October’s gonna be nuts if you plan on watching everything on the schedule.September 22, 2017 at 10:58 pm #21384
It won’t be much of a contest. One’s a comedy in a sci-fi skin, the other’s a sci-fi show with a sprinkling of comedy on top. I’ll take Red Dwarf over the Orville any day.October 6, 2017 at 3:18 am #21545
Well, today was the premiere. Anybody else see it? First impressions… man, it’s dark on that set. I wonder if it’s a way to hide the fact that they’ve aged so much. Okay story, nothing to write home about. Are the guns drawn at the end of the episode old Star Wars toys with a bunch of bits n’ bobs glued on to them?October 9, 2017 at 10:58 am #21562
It looks like American viewers can watch the show almost in real time – the episodes are being added day-and-date to the Britbox service.November 5, 2017 at 4:12 am #21732
The last episode, M-Corp, was a nice swipe at net neutrality. Or more reasonably, the bastardization of it by greed. What gets me is that, if Lister is technically the last human alive, shouldn’t he have essentially inherited all human holdings, properties, and finances? Couldn’t he have ordered the M-Corp software to uninstall itself as the de-facto owner of the company? I know I’m using logic to interpret a comedy, but still. I do have to admit, having Lister behaving like he did on the first episode (with cigarette in his ear) and possibly wearing his old outfit from The End was worth it.November 22, 2017 at 3:31 am #21813
I just watched the final episode of the season (and who knows, maybe for good) called Skipper. There’s a couple of really good cameos in it, I won’t spoil the surprise though. It’s been a slightly below middling run of episodes to be honest, but at least it ended with a fun one at the end. Anybody else see it?November 29, 2017 at 3:48 pm #21844
Compared to XI, something about XII just…it didn’t really underwhelm me, but it didn’t do anything more than merely whelming me. Not overwhelmed, not underwhelmed, just whelmed. Hard to really put a finger on it.
