But will it star Kochanshi?
It's taken them 21 years, but this Easter the crew of Red Dwarf will finally return to Earth in a two-part special which reunites many of the original cast. The homecoming is courtesy of digital channel Dave, which on Friday 10 April will broadcast the first installment of Red Dwarf: Back to Earth - penned by the show's co- …
Any new Dwarf is good news as far as I'm concerned - even though seasons 7-8 weren't the best... I'm gonna assume that Dave's budget isn't going to be anywhere near the BBC's (especially in the last few years of the series)...
... Although this could be a good thing and force Doug Naylor back to basics...
the title "back to earth" makes me worried though
surely they won't actually get there will they? i mean, the whole point was that we knew they would never ever get home, but they carried on anyway
still - smegging brilliant news that there's more Red Dwarf coming up. here's hoping it kick starts more seasons of the show
(to be honest though, you're months late with this news, i'm sure i read about it on the red dwarf website before xmas)
Opening sequence I will say will show the ending of the last episode.. and then cut to 10 years later
Lister "Well that was a boring trip"
Kryton "But Sir, what about 7 years ago when you ripped your pants, that was amusing"
Lister stares blankly
Cat "Well at least ive aged with grace, you look like you have been dragged through a cupboard of dead hedgehogs"
Thery don't have Dave over here (NL) so I guess I'll have to miss it :(
Must admit though that with only one half of grant-naylor I don't expect it to be great - but I'm such a dwarfer that I don't care I'd still watch it given half a chance...
Boys from the dwarf!
Four super brushes that will clean even the trickiest of seabound mammals. Yes, I am over eighteen, though my IQ isn't.
I don't hold out much hope after the last 2 series but maybe that because...............
"My brain's rebelled. It just won't accept nice things happening to me."
It's going to be shite. You know it's going to be shite. Everyone will say it's very good at the time but we'll all know it's being said through gritted teeth. Then after a year everyone will admit it was shite and start slagging it off, yet still remain hopeful for a film version.
That's sci-fi fans for you.
i pray to silicon heaven this doesnt end up like a complete fail! red dwarf has to be one of britains best shows in the 20th century. please dont much up this chance!!!
i gues chloe anette didnt want to come back?
Good to see the boys from the Dwarf back for a special.
They never really wrapped up the series with season 8's ending, but I have to agree with the commentors above it wasn't the same since they introduced Kochanski in 7 to replace Rimmer. (bringing back the crew from the dead in 8 was the kiss of death to the show)
My hope is that for the specials they go back to basics of what the show was about.
Well done DAVE. First Argumental, now Red Dwarf.
Glad to see that they are moving away from being just a "repeats" channel.
Since Red Dwarf 8 I haven't seen anything on the BBC that IMHO qualified as even remotely funny, and before anyone mentions "The Office",... I'd rather have testicular electro-shock torture!
Even if it's crap, the worst of the Dwarf is better than pretty much anything that's on our 400+ channels today. Can't wait! :-)
In later series we had such nonsense as Kryten choking on his own throat to talk Gelf, even though they sounded like they had a more structured language when first encountered. Everything else falls apart the same way, like the Kat being a shadow of his former independent cool self.
dust of my old "Better smeg than dead" t-shirt...oh the memories of a great show, will have to record for my in-law as he loves it too...
Do hope they don't spoil it though, would be a shame after all this time to go a balls it up.
Maybe the G.E.L.F could make a re-appearance...
