Afraid I have to disagree with you Iceman.
The whole story was in complete accordance with the original
series previous episode wherein an emotion squid was involved
as was actually explained at the end of the 3rd part.
Sometimes you have to look on things with a less critical eye & just try to enjoy the fact that we had some new episodes to look at.Lets face it,the likelyhood of it living up to past episodes was remote,the first episode I really enjoyed,while the rest of the show I just looked on it as good to see the old gang together one more time.
I went back and re watched it, and Gedman, you are right the first episode is good.
I suppose I was hoping for answers to all the questions they left us with at the end of season 8.
I sincerely hope they do make more.
Just in case you don't know the DVD will be out very soon.
Its good news that we will be getting more new Red Dwarf, which starts filming in 2011...
From The Daily Mail.....
Coronation star Craig Charles has stunned Red Dwarf fans by revealing the cult sci-fi show is set to return to our screens for a brand new series next year.
The futuristic BBC comedy - which featured Charles, 46, as Dave Lister, the last remaining human alive - originally ran for eight series over an eleven year period before it was axed in 1999.
Many fans lamented the loss of the sci-fi show, which saw the motley crew of the Red Dwarf mining space ship floating through space with Lister desperate to return to earth, alongside his hologram bunk-mate Rimmer, Holly the computer and the ever cool Cat.
Back again: Robert Llewellyn (Kryten), Danny John-Jules (Cat) and Craig Charles (Lister) and Chris Barrie (Rimmer) in the comeback show last year.
Speaking on Real Radio's breakfast show this week, Charles told presenters Ditchy and Salty: 'It did really well which was really quite weird because we all thought we were just doing it for a laugh. 'It got more viewers than BBC2 and Channel 4 combined on the night which is really good!
Screen star: Craig now appears in Coronation Street"
'So they've just commissioned another series of Red Dwarf. We're gonna film at the end of November, December and January.'
Asked whether he thinks Red Dwarf still has a place on our screens, Charles said: 'Well yes only if it's still as funny as it used to be. 'We've gotta recapture the highlights like series 5 series 6, that kind of stuff. If we can hit that mark then brilliant. There's no point doing it if it's a bit so-so.'
Liverpuddlian Charles confirmed he will be making a comeback as the leather jacket-wearing Lister in the new series of Red Dwarf, the first series of which first aired in 1988 and gained a cult following throughout the 90's.
When asked whether the Cat, played by Danny John-Jules, and Rimmer, played by Chris Barrie, would be making a return to our screens, Charles said: "Yep, the Cat's coming back!
'Chris Barrie was my favourite. He IS Rimmer. We're all quite like our characters - we're just caricatures of ourselves!'
But fans will be left guessing as to the plot of the new series as Craig has yet to reveal what will happen.
At the end of series eight, the spaceship was overtaken by a mystery virus and the crew all manage to abandoned ship, except for Rimmer who was left stranded alone to face Death - who he had earlier kicked in the groin.
I must've been the only one not stunned lol
I want it to be next year NOW.
same here I cant wait
Well filming for series 9 *cough* Series 10... begins in December, I can confirm this because I got tickets to be in the Audience from a fan club link.
I am pleased to say it will be filmed in the original format we saw in series 1 thru 6 with the same cameras at the same studios with a proper audience, Filming will go on until January with an air date in the first half of 2012.
I can't belive you tickets, I'm sure you will have a great time. Roll on the show it will be amazing
it was amazing, my hopes were surpassed in every way. I do not mean to suggest its as good as it was because its really not but the raw comedy is there. It is now airing in Autumn on Dave.
You lucky *%$@$%!
who can we expect to see in the cast in this new series?
New Red Dwarf trailer.
Thank you Iceman, looks great!
A triumphant return IMHO
