The bit about Lister betting Rimmer in a poker game brought a smile to my face. This preview gives off a "back to basics" vibe for Red Dwarf. Mainly, it seems to be once again a buddy comedy set in a sci-fi environment. Looking forward to it.
Yup; that was what I liked about it too.

Wow, the gang just looks... old.
Some more than others. I like what Rimmer is doing with his hair this season. It gives a certain dignity to his age that his short, curly, receding hairline couldn't quite muster. Kryten seems a bit older but the prosthetics are hiding a lot of that. Lister looks a bit older from some angles but not so much from others. And Cat hardly looks older at all.

But what I love best is that the show seems to have recaptured the look & feel of the old series in a way that the single-camera, no-laugh-track "Back to Earth" just couldn't.

Not bad at all.

I think I still generally prefer the less homely, more utilitarian looks of the other series, but I guess in this case change isn't bad. After all, even a lazy bachelor like Lister has had long enough now to do a little redecorating.

Or they finally managed to get the skutters to do some work. Then again I'm not sure I would trust the skutters to change a light bulb.

Any idea if BBC America will be carrying it for the U.S.?

"The Beginning" sounds interesting, considering the first episode was called "The End"
