I love Red Dwarf and can't believe it's 25 years old! One of my favorite series! Hoping there is more!

Re: Red Dwarf 25th Anniversary Thread

Just finished watching Series 9, which is all Netflix has. What the smeg was that?! It was so un-Red Dwarf. I still can't tell if I liked it, or not.
When was series 10 made? Is it any good? Anyone know when it is supposed to be available on Netflix?

Oh god yeah, Series 10 knocks the socks off Back to Earth. Don't let that put you off.
So it goes.

Re: Red Dwarf 25th Anniversary Thread

Have a bit of a bump.

The collector mentality kicked in again. I wound up getting Back to Earth as well, just to round the collection off, and I've watched them all. Indeed I'm rewatching 10 now just to get the chronology sorted.

So 1-6 were brilliant as I expected. Season 7 wasn't quite as bad as I remembered, but after the great Tikka to Ride, it all went quickly downhill.

The surprise was Season 8. It's hilarious. It has some of the funniest stuff out of the whole series. Great moments, brilliant lines. It gets rid of the jealous Kryten-neurotic Kochanski dynamic that put me off season 7. The problem with 8 is that by bringing the crew back, it dilutes the story, loses the focus on the main characters. It feels like a wodge load of Red Dwarf moments in a show that isn't Red Dwarf. The real problem with 8 though is the finale, where too much is crammed into one episode and it all goes a little wobbly thereafter.

Back to Earth was worse than I remembered. At least on TV I had the novelty of new Red Dwarf after 9 years. This time I knew what was coming!

I'm surprised that Series 10 was commissioned off the back of it!

Well when BTE aired on Dave it got the channels highest ever ratings, until Red Dwarf X beat those ratings.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.

I'm sure it would get the spiffy ratings back if they put it back on the Beeb.

Still no news on another series, I think if it happens we won't have anything on screen for another 2 years at least.
So it goes.

Re: Red Dwarf 25th Anniversary Thread

My kid has finally started watching.

I tried to force it on when he was nine, but he resisted.

8 years later and his girlfriend suggests that it's a good idea in passing.
