Re: Red Dwarf series 9 (or is it 10?) in 2012 confirmed by Craig Charl

Well, the first episode being "The End" doesn't sound all that promising..

Man, I seem to remember the Dwarfers having a LITTLE more in the armory before, but hey, it HAS been quite some time.

Try comparing it to other British shows which also started in 1988...

Not all of those were serials. Some were one-offs. Some of those like the Beiderbeck Connection were excellent. Your list of shows that might have been recomissioned is no different that year than any other.

Don't get me wrong. I still admire you for watching all the new shite so nobody else has to watch it but unless you're very old indeed or completely anal you didn't see half of those shows you listed.

Of course it is worth pointing out whilst the grand-daddy of TV Sci-Fi celebrates it's 50th Anniversary next year, Red Dwarf will mark it's 25th Anniversary. Hopefully with Red Dwarf XI.

That list on a website. They have a similar list for new shows every year since tv started. And a second list which i didn't provide for the other shows that were airing that year.

I actually put the wrong year down first since I've always felt that Red Dwarf started in '89, but maybe this is about when production started more so that airing?

As I was a child at the time living in a colony I hadn't seen most of the listed TV. I've heard of 8 of those shows including Red Dwarf, and only had positive memories for about half of them.

My point was that most TV is shit, cancelled and forgotten.

I Believe Red Dwarf premiered in 1988

Yep. Wikipedia says "The End" first aired on February 15, 1988.

^ Wow. A quarter of a century next February, then. That's a big smegging deal. Dallas aside, it's difficult to think of a scenario where a group of characters returned to a franchise so long after being there at its original inception.

Star Trek would rank among shows returning after a long hiatus, too, of course, but it is certainly an unusual thing for television. I just hope it is funny (early reports, surprisingly, are good).

Doesn't seem like it's been almost a quarter of the entury, where does the time goto?

Well, I think the more relevant detail is that Red Dwarf is reassembling with pretty much the same cast after all this time. Neither Trek nor Who can boast that for their series'

Well, except for the cast of the original series reassembling for a big screen movie released on December 7, 1979 after first appearing together (well, except for Walter Koenig) in "The Man Trap" which aired on September 8, 1966 on NBC.

Thirteen years versus twenty-five, though, is quite a difference.

Yes, but in Star Trek's case they last assembled for 1991's TUC. A span of 25 years.

As RD has been on and off, and on and off and on and off and on again production since it first came out.
