DwarfCast 56 – Confidence & Paranoia Commentary

It seems almost every DwarfCast we put out at the moment comes with us apologising for the delays at the beginning. This particular recording comes from only a few months ago, though, so we’re getting closer to a sensible schedule. As Ian noted in the last DwarfCast post, this represents the first series we’ve completed in the seven years we’ve been doing these stupid commentaries (save for Back to Earth, but shush) so it’s a little bit of a milestone. Consequently, we took the opportunity to have a bit of a post-commentary chat on series 1 in general to wrap things up and generally get back into the swing of this ‘talking about Red Dwarf’ lark.

DwarfCast 55 – DNA Commentary

Join G&T’s Ian Symes and Danny Stephenson, along with hangers-on Rich Lawden, Jezzmund Tutu and Tom Pyott, as we transmogrify your minds and talk all over the top of Series IV episode two DNA. We discuss the unusually high proportion of movie references, Lister’s journey to the centre of the moral compass, decades-old editing techniques and the demise of video clubs. We actually recorded this about six months ago, but we’ve been putting the edit off, due to a tricky situation caused by the coming together of Danny’s arse and the ‘next chapter’ button on the DVD remote. Hopefully you won’t see the joins.

DwarfCast 54 – Future Echoes Commentary

Yes, the least reliable Red Dwarf podcast in the universe is BACK. Brilliant. We return once more to the realm of episode commentaries by going almost back to the beginning for Future Echoes. Does it justify its reputation as an all time classic? Is there a pre-determination paradox at play? What’s the deal with the light above Lister’s bunk? Join us as we fail to answer these questions and more, with G&T regulars Ian Symes and Danny Stephenson joined by very ordinary guests Jezzmund Tutu, Rich Lawden and Tom Pyott.

DwarfCast 53 – Timeslides / Backwards Forwards Commentary

It’s DwarfCast time once again, and this time we’re dusting off another commentary recorded on the anniversary weekend, spruced up a bit by a more recent, and possibly ill-advised, commentary on the DVD extra Backwards Forwards. Rejected options for the bonus extra for this ‘cast was Hattie’s DJ Diary, and 20 minutes of bitter, teary complaints about the broken menu on Disc 2. I think we chose wisely.

DwarfCast 52 – Pete Commentary

Get out your map, identify the nearest hill, and bloodly well run for it because G&T are doing a Red Dwarf VIII commentary and that shit’s never pretty. In previous years the Krytie TV commentary decended into a pathetic, drunken argument, and the commentary for Cassandra was so soul crushingly depressing that we never even bothered releasing it.

DwarfCast 50 – Dimension Jump XVII Special

Another Dimension Jump has once again come and gone, and we’re all left to pick up the emotional and physical pieces as we try to recover from the best weekend in any given calendar year. It was an odd year for G&T as more than half of our number were involved in the running of the weekend, but as always we still found time for the traditional round-up DwarfCast.

DwarfCast 47 – Bodyswap Commentary

It’s 2013 and yet here we still are, foisting the same old shit on you. Rejoice! Join Ian, John, Cappsy, Danny and the Fan Club’s Jo Sharples as we once again gather to talk over an episode of Red Dwarf, namely Bodyswap and the series III deleted scenes. Marvel as we inform you on such as topics as the lack of a live audience, why the cast’s impressions of each other should’ve been included in the final episode and the exact dimensions of Craig Charles’ penis.
