Re: Red Dwarf series 9 (or is it 10?) in 2012 confirmed by Craig Charl
Yeah, S8 was OK, just not a patch on the fantastic 1-5, or even the slightly less fantastic S6.
To me 1-5 is when they were "on form", it was both a great comedy and a great sci-fi show, and I don't see it ever coming close to that sort of perfect mix again. They'd better off just making sure they come up with better plots than BtE rather than trying to be as funny as the old stuff. At least we can get some good sci-fi, even if it isn't that funny.
Well it kinda seems to me that Grant brought most of the funny and Naylor brought most of the Sci-fi and that's why it's been off since Grant left.
And their call for war on poverty is a smokescreen we don't need, cos the only war worth fighting for is a war on their pure greed. : Acid Country - Paul Heaton
