So, the mobisodes, then. Not much cop, eh? Not keen on the character design? Bit pointless, just doing brief snippets of gags we can all recite anyway? Not really worth subscribing to, even if you actually have a phone that they’ll work on?
As you know, nothing will get Team G&T shouting from the rooftops more than the prospect of NEW DWARF MATERIAL, and kudos to them there mobisode people for doing exactly that. I mean, this is arguably more classifiably “new Dwarf” than Bodysnatcher was (that was, after all, technically OLD Dwarf, just finished even later than a Douglas Adams novel) – and, as an added bonus, it’s got Robert in it as well!
I still don’t consider (and I say this as a smartphone aficionado who actually has tried watching video on his phone) mobile phones to be close to a really desirable means of delivering and viewing video content just yet – remember the ROK player? Oh, how we laughed – but in providing original material from a massive franchise, completely written by its creator (is it wrong of me to suggest that, if this was the ’90s, this sort of thing might have been fobbed off onto Paul Alexander or someone?)… well, there are some trails being blazed, right there.
And I don’t know about you, but it’s got me interested. Sign me up.
