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

I also watched it today. I agree it's up there with the good ones, but not the great ones.

The simulant did sound like the one from Rimmerworld, but I'm sure that was intentional. Different women.

I'm experiencing relief and anticipation!

Slightly ropey - almost nervous - first 5-10 minutes, but a strong second half. The cast were clearly getting back into their stride, the jokes were decent and the plot sufficient for the jokes. Only one or two really deep chuckles, but enough to be optimistic about next week. It still needs some sharper jokes (aka the Rob Grant effect), but overall, there's enough about this ep to give me hope.

If it wasn't RD, I don't think I'd watch regularly but as it's RD, I know this cast's chemistry can lead to great humour, so I'll definitely continue to watch the series. I think this return has some real potential to return the show to greatness. This ep was probably about equal to the worst eps of S1-6 (Meltdown, probably) and the very best eps of S7/8 (maybe Cassandra, or the Rimmer S7 episodes). And miles better than BTE.

BTW, it's really annoying to have to register for Dave's website to use their VOD service. I did it, because I really like RD and missed the live broadcast, but most people wouldn't bother. Forcing registrations limits the potential VOD audience.
Think that's a temporary thing, they're introducing a full scale VOD site for Really, Dave and Yesterday later in the year, with apps for smart TVs and consoles I believe.
That's good to know. Doesn't make any sense to artificially limit viewership (and presumably, advertising revenue).

Oh yeah, I didn't notice the similarity until it was mentioned , but it's true. That's a nice touch, to keep it consistent.

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

Just finished watching it thanks to youtube. Was pretty fun, halfway through I had to stop and just smile to myself that I was actually watching a new episode of Red Dwarf for the first time in 14 years.

As an aside, is there any other means than youtube for a yank like me to see the show?

^ Unlikely, I watched it on youtube as well.

And Aldo, you're an Admiral. No need to pad your post count like that

That's weird, I'm not sure why that happened.

I wasn't referring to you, of course, you made the first reference, everyone else went off on to the wrong episode.
