I have to wonder what the responses would have been like every week had this board been around in when RD started in the 80s. Yes. The 80s. The fact that the cast look good and can still make us laugh is a fucking miracle. It also says a lot about what a risk the original commissioners took with a very young cast.
And in a VERY interesting note - I JUST found out this week that Janet Street Porter was one of the original commissioners of RD!!!

Weird, huh?!?!

Not massively impressed by this week's ep, especially compared to last week's great fun, but it was OK. Rimmer watching Lister apparently humping the vending machine reminded me of the infamous Polymorph scene with Kryten, but paled a little by comparison. I wish they'd stop paraphrasing gags from the earlier seasons. It was a cute nod in the first couple of episodes, but is now starting to seem less like a homage and more like uninventiveness.

Is it possible that "Dear Dave" is the first episode that was filmed? It just felt really off: the writing, the performances, I just wasn't feeling it this week.

The only parts I liked involved Cat.

A bit of a relative dip in quality this week, but still not too bad. Can't believe it's over on Thursday.

I've no idea of the veracity of this, but on another forum I frequent it was claimed this was, like Duct Soup, a late in the day replacement for something that proved too expensive. Next week's apparently rehashes a lot of the unused film script for similar reasons.

Seems there's been a lot of late replacement stuff. The addition if Irene last week, it should have been the ape all the way through, and a few scenes in this episode were added later. Apparently the scene with Rimmer putting his fingers through their paces was such a late addition the scene was green screen because the sets weren't up any more.

Craig Charles likes to joke that the number of people he's met over the years who have told him they were there from the start and always loved the show outstrip the first years ratings by a huge margin.
That's probably true here in the US. I remember my roomie taping this at random off PBS and getting hooked almost immediately. Confused the heck out of a lot of people when we wore little foam H's taped to our heads while serving beer at the next convention.

I watched the last three back to back and I have to say I'm finding the quality very lacking. I think the magic is truly gone. If another season comes to pass I would like the original writing team to be used.

Yeah, like that'll happen.

It was ok, not terrible but made me giggle in places. Just didn't seem to go anywhere, I thought they were setting us up for something major with the toilet paper but they weren't, and I actually agree with Guy (well let's be clear here I agree with one thing Guy said) that they should have gone with him having an actual relationship with the vending machine with Kryton building her a body...obviously it'd have all gone wrong (maybe she'd run off with another vending machine called Roy) but at least it would have gone somewhere...and seriously who'd try and pick up a vending machine from the floor whilst still lying on top of it?

I'm still holding out hope they'll encounter one of the cat arks.

Either the blue hats, who flew straight into an asteroid, or the red hats, who flew ever onward.

I wonder if Red Dwarf really will blow up at the end of the final episode.

Why not? It's blown up before.
