As UKTVG2 launches onto the Freeview platform as ‘Dave’ (cos everybody knows a bloke called Dave, even if he’s fictional and lives in SPACE), it seems your average TV viewer is suddenly going to have a good deal more chances to watch Red Dwarf repeats. Starting tonight, in fact.
Leaving the astonishingly shit name aside for the moment, Dave is turning out to be one of the best channels on Freeview, basically because UKTVG2 was pretty good to start with and nothing seems to have changed, so Red Dwarf is still a regular presence in the schedules. Dave repeats start tonight with Psirens, the first episode of Red Dwarf VI. It will be shown at 21:00 and 23:40, with the rest of the series presumably following the same (or similar) pattern.
Dave offers a fairly decent summing up of the show here, although the usual WRONGNESS you find with things like this are present and correct.
Tragically, you can also expect Dave continuity for these repeats to show up in the downloads section soon, too.
