I've got it set to record...  I suspect this will be a last outing for them though. I just hope they can do my fond memories justice.

If Carlsberg made a scifi comedy, it probably wouldn’t come close to this!

Red Dwarf is like an alien entity in the body that affects the mind rendering it impervious to outside influence during the episodal infections.

Common symptoms are tears falling from cheeks; spontaneous outbursts of infective laughter, painful side splitting ribs and recurring repeat episodes that are a delight to the well-being of those who have become subjected to this hilarious yet somehow believable adventure.

Recycled urine helps swill down a fiery vindaloo curry, heaven knows where the ingredients for it came from.

How can anyone not like Red Dwarf?

Though I must admit, the last series lost something for me...

Same here. It was funny but lost the edge of the previous series, particulalry 1, 2 and 3.
But if its RD I still love it regardless!!

We are recording it onto DVD ssssshhh!

I'm more excited about Doctor who, although I do think the knackered bus might upset those people involved in the London bus bomb. It is very remeniscent of 7/7. I realise they couldn't help it as some dockers dropped a cargo container on the bus so they had to change the script to explain the damage but still someone should have said, "hold on that might upset people." Anyway, I still can't wait and like the girlie that will be assisting him. It is so much more fun when you are bi-. I'm already having naughty thoughts about Tennant and Ryan together!

Yep me too!!! Did anyone spot the photo of Mel Bibby next to Kochanski's on the memorial? I thought that was a nice touch.

It was OK, but I had a bigger laugh watching the repeat episode from series VI - the 4 horseman/gunslingers of the apocalypse one (don't remember the title) - that was shown right after.

I didnt like the CGI much, I dont usually mind CGI but the skutter didnt look right without the usual clunkiness, and the lack of laughter track made it feel odd.
I also feel it should have been kept as a 90 min film rather than a 3-parter, it would have made much more sense that way.
Hopefully parts 2 and 3 willl be better.
I still loved it... its RD after all!

Gunman of the Apocolypse is one of the best ones, and won numerous awards. What irritates the hell out of me is that Dave kept 'shaving' bits off it here and there so it fits int he time slot and to make room for ads... grrrr!!! There were some class lines and jokes lost because of that.

The whole thing will be repeated on monday I think, 1 2 and 3 with a behind the scenes commentary.

Thanks, I've just set the entire monday night to be recorded!! Will watch at the same time of course. Now, do I watch episodes 2 and 3 first, or wait and get them in order? decisions ...

Just saw that Robert Llewellyn and Craig Charles will be in Norwich on saturday for a signing!! So, that's where I'll be then! Will earn myself brownie points with a good  birthday pressie for my brother.
