DwarfCast 39 – Entangled: Instant Reaction

entangled_cast_featured

DwarfCasts from Ganymede & TitanIf you haven’t got time to waste twatting about with other fansites and reviews, why not try our instant reaction Dwarfcast for Entangled? This is the downloadable version of last night’s live ‘cast, featuring the same mistakes and ill-thought-through opinions, but with nicer audio quality. Ian Symes, Jonathan Capps, Danny Stephenson and TORDFC’s Jo Sharples are joined by ‘special’ ‘guest’ Seb Patrick, of reddwarf.co.uk fame, who gives his ‘insight’ from his day spent behind-the-scenes on this episode. We’ve also got a whole bunch of your comments and small points, and most excitingly, an exclusive interview with chief garbage gobbler Steven Wickham, who tells us all about how he got involved with the show again after an absence of nearly twenty years, his thoughts on Series X as a whole, and his feelings on being so near yet so far to performing in front of a live audience. All that, plus a preview of Dear Dave and a lot of unnecessary swearing. Hurrah!

DwarfCast 39 – Entangled: Instant Reaction (87.2MB)

We’ll be back with more audio bollocks at the same time next week, but stick around the site this weekend for our written review of Entangled, which sees Danny Stephenson stepping up to the opinion plate.

  1. Steven Wickham sounds like a thoroughly nice chap! Nice that Steven and (previously) Rebecca put aside the time to speak to you guys. That Pree sting is still fucking awesome.

    Anyway, I swear it was mentioned after one of the recordings that there was a scene filmed or acted out to the audience on one of the main sets because the actual set that was to be used in the final show hadn’t yet been built. Was this the Blue Midget scene? Maybe filmed in the drive room? Those on the Dwarfcast who attended seemed unsure as to whether they saw the scene filmed or not and I thought this may be why.

    Also, unlike swedish flatpacks and call centres, it didn’t even occur to me that the health and safety thread was such a well trodden comedy path. I mean, I know it is but it I didn’t think at any point “Oh, health and safety jokes”. I thought “Oh, Rimmer being an anal goit jokes!” which to me signifies that it was executed perfectly. And that final punchline! Brilliant.

    I can’t speak for this episode, but the episode 6 recording had a scene that was staged just for the audience to keep us up to speed, which was supposed to be set in the drive room.

    That’s probably what I’m thinking of!

  4. I was a bit baffled by the reference to “Starbug 2” as well. However, rewatching it, I think he says “Starbug too”.

    As in, he’s going to return to the moon and sort out the mess, including Starbug.

    Great podcast btw – I’m going to go back and listen to the others.

  5. Did anyone notice in entangled that in the bit the on the ice planet when lister cut off the cats hair that the screen on the bomb was already at 0.

    Yep, it was all over the place for the whole episode. Ticking clocks never easy for continuity.

    Agreed Completely, JIC either (and any other cast and crew who give their time in this way) ever read this thread

    Thankyou very much, Im sure NoFro, Myself and the sysops are not the only ones who greatly appreciate your generosity of spirit

    That Pree sting is still fucking awesome.

    You’re telling us, it’s one of the best things I’ve ever been involved with.

    Absolutely, which is why you need a bloody strong episode to get away with something like that. They didn’t really need it, given that you could have said that the penalty for getting the code wrong was for the lock to weld itself together or something. Either that, or you keep referring to the clock and make sure you get it right!

  10. >You could have been part of our big main chat
    >But you went and left us – you treacherous twat.

    Thank you for casting this couplet at us.
    I now nominate it for Hall of Fame Status.

  11. G&T Admin

    But I am not human, and neither are you.
    And it is not our place to judge them. I wonder why you do.

  12. I just enjoyed the rhyming of “chat” and “twat”. Didn’t set out to judge anyone. :)
    Or is “hall of fame status” reserved for sarcasm? I thought we also used it genuinely sometimes.

  13. Oh my God, I just figured out what it sounded like I was saying.
    I’m sorry, Seb. You’re awesome and I’m the only twat around here.

  14. speak for yourself, im part of that chorus line

    tooo-wat wat, toooo-wat wat

    lol

  15. Like a blind old incontinent sheepdog
    he’s had his day
    Take him out to the barn with a double-barreled shot-gun
    and blow the
    mother away.

    I tried singing this to the “Cannon Fodder” theme. It doesn’t quite fit, which is a shame because it feels like it should.
