Anyone a tincy bit disappointed we didn't get a proper explanation to season 8's cliffhanger
I thought it was great we didn't. They tried to tie up the cliffhanger to season six in season seven but it ultimately wasn't needed. This time round it made the joke funnier because millions of fans around the world would be smacking their heads.

Besides, season eight was mostly crap (save for 'Cassandra').

Overall it was a bit of a lame season, on par with seasons seven and eight. One or two gems but ultimately failed to fire.

Did everyone watch through the credits for the one (two?) last gag at the end?

Yep.

And did anybody see "Family Guy" this week do a COMPLETE rehash of "Backwards", complete even with the "poo goes back up into you" gag?

I was so gobsmacked at the sheer blatant rip-off-ed-ness of the story I didn't laugh once....although that is not too surprising for FG these days!

Oh, it was fun, I was just amazed at how piss poor Seth was not to have his crew talking backwards.

Almost as bad-science as the repeating day episode from Amdromeda.

They're back on the Dwarf with Rimmer saying "Arnie saves the day again, just like some certain metal eating bug" then they all say "You can't be serious all you did was..." and then the guy from the start of the show points a gun at Lister and says "You kilt my brutha" cutting them off before they can say it.

I really liked that they pre-empted any reveal of how Rimmer saved them at the end of S8; it's much better as an unknown, much like we never really needed to see Maris in Frasier or Norm's wife in Cheers. Whatever they say now won't live up to the gag of us not knowing.

but this should have been a joke from the first episode of te series.

Not the last, because now it seems that they're reacting to critique with seconds to spare.

How? The show was filmed 6 months ago.

I think you're seeing something that isn't there. This was Rimmer being heroic, so other times Rimmer was heroic came up for a joke.

Probably.

But if I didn't flex my imagination, I'd only be regurgitating shit that actually happened.

Blu ray out today, with 2 hour making of documentary. Picking mine up in a minute.

Not bought a Dwarf DVD or Blu Ray before, as I didn't like the fact they didn't do a boxset of the originals including the special features. But since Dwarf XI relies on this selling well, i'm gonna plonk down some cash for once.

I swear all the purchasing for Supermarket entertainment sections must be done by one middle aged housewife who buys nothing but Michael Buble CDs.

I didn't bother preordering it because I did not think there would be a problem getting something as popular as Red Dwarf off the shelf, but I have been to Asda, Tesco & Sainsbury's superstores today, and none of them are even stocking Red Dwarf X on Blu Ray. Two of them are stocking the DVD, but neither of them actually had one.

Wankers.
