The Red Dwarf Drinking Game: Re-mastered Features Posted by Ian Symes and John Hoare on 6th October 2003, 23:00 Inspired by a combination of the various Red Dwarf Drinking Games around the net and Tanya Jones, we present our version, for use when forced to watch a Re-mastered episode (to try and make it slightly enjoyable). Simply do as instructed. Have fun. WARNING: Watching more than two episodes of the Re-mastered series in a row can seriously make you forget why you ever liked Red Dwarf in the first place. Excercise extreme caution, and keep a copy of the Series I and II DVDs around at all times in case of emergencies. The usual caveat: you may find it slightly more managable to only do one or two sections at a time… Effects Take ONE DRINK each time a crappy CGI shot replaces a gorgeous physical model shot. Take ONE DRINK each time CGI is used to ‘enhance’ a live action shot. Take TWO DRINKS if this doesn’t involve the outside of the window in the sleeping quarters. Take THREE DRINKS each time a change looks anything other than “fucking abysmal”. Audio Take ONE DRINK each time some dialogue has been rerecorded or changed. Take TWO DRINKS if this rerecording removes a British cultural reference. Take THREE DRINKS if a change does not involve Holly. Take ONE DRINK each time an extra stupid incongruous sound effect is dubbed on. Take TWO DRINKS each time background noise has been changed/added. Take ONE DRINK each time a piece of original music is removed. Take TWO DRINKS if it isn’t replaced at all. Editing Take ONE DRINK each time part of a scene is removed. Take ONE DRINK if a change creates a continuity problem. Take TWO DRINKS if this problem does not involve Norman Lovett’s face. Take ONE DRINK if new live action footage is inserted into the episode. Take ONE DRINK if a new drawing appears. Good stuff Take ONE DRINK each time extra original footage (shot at the time) appears. FINISH THE GLASS if a change is made that actually improves the scene in some way. Miscellaneous Take ONE DRINK at the start of the show if the picture is in 14:9 letterbox. Take ONE DRINK each time an original production error that could have been corrected is left in. Take ONE DRINK each time you spot a wrong/misspelled end credit. Your Friends FORCE THE ENTIRE GLASS down someone each time they say they prefer the Re-mastered series. And we mean the actual glass.
