GO. This week we have a Rimmer and Lister scene, showing them sifting through the contents of what can only be a post pod delivery. More thoughts on this and other bits after the jump.
First, THE CLIP. In a scene that definitely brings to mind a certain scene from Better Than Life, Lister and Rimmer are sifting through the contents of a post pod. After a discussion about who might have more mail (just like Better Than Life), Rimmer finds a letter for him that actually turns out to be a notice of money owed (just like Better Than Life). Derivativeness aside it’s still a funny scene, with Chris especially bringing in the lols. Interestingly, the ‘countdown’ theme of these weekend repeats also seem to apply to these episode clips. Make of that what you will.
In today’s first ad break we were also treated to two new Dave bumpers, one featuring Rimmer cleaning the Dave logo and another with the Cat spraying it with his own piss and declaring it his. AMUSING. Presumably there’ll be another two of these to spot throughout the weekend. My predictions are Kryten will fuck the logo with his groinal attachment and Lister will pour curry sauce all over it and then eat it, the silly slob.
Finally, the main series trailer has been tweaked slightly. Now, instead of ending with Lister finding a poppadom in his card, it is replaced with a short scene of him trapped outside the ship without his keys, signalling to Kryten to let him in. It’s definitely a much stronger ending to the trailer, and one I greatly approve of. Nice effect, too.
Addendum: Clare Grogan is shit in Psirens.
