    See, now the idea of New Dwarf is quite weird to think about. Still hasn’t quite sunk in yet.

    Maybe I’ll watch a few episodes on DVD and wear out my F5 key in honest anticipation of the G+T opinion flood.

    Well, in preparation, I’ve been trying to re-read the Infinity/BTL omnibus for a couple of weeks, but I’m so familiar with it, I can’t read it. So, despite my liking for Last Human, dipped into Backwards instead, and, having only read it a couple of times, I’m zipping through and loving it!

    In preparation, I’m watching Rambo which I Sky-plussed the other day. It stars Nicey Ackerman, who is probably my favourite Red Dwarf character.

    Graham ‘Ackerman’ McTavish was in NCIS the other week too.

    Anyway, if your countdown is to be believed – FOUR DAYS EXACTLY!!

    Yeah, I think I’m driving the wife nuts with my incessant harping on about new Dwarf. Then today she saw the trailer on Living, and smiled. I’m wearing her down!

    I will be watching every episode of Red dwarf again before ‘Back to Earth’ to be nice and extra super ready for the episodes.

    I wish I had the patience to wait until Sunday and watch all the new stuff in one go.

    I get the feeling it would be a much less frustrating experience, but I really don’t think I’ll be able to do it.

    So, let’s get this straight. The week ahead looks like this…

    • Wednesday: Carbug and cast in Berkeley Square, London.
    • Thursday: Back to Reality, the new fan club mag, scheduled to arrive.
    • Friday: New Red Dwarf! Back to Earth part one.
    • Saturday: BtE part two.
    • Sunday: Final part of BtE and The Making Of…
    • Monday: Back to Earth – The whole shebang!
    • Tuesday: Watch Doctor Who, which you haven’t watched yet, then catch up on 3 days of missed sleep.

    This is a good week.

    You forgot the hours spent on G&T dissecting everything.

    Dissected, bisected, and trisected, then drawn and quartered! I’m assuming that someone is recording this?

    Didn’t you say you were going to watch every episode before Friday, SO?

    I am up to ‘Waiting for God’. Don’t worry, I am watching Series 1-4 today, Series 5-7 thursday and Series 8 on friday. I have it planned out.

    If I have time I might squeeze in ‘Bodysnatcher’, ‘Identity Within’ and ‘The End’ the original cut.

    I went the one a day route, but mistimed it so finished VIII last week sometime. VIII was rather a chore, and Beyond a Joke was a thousand times worse than I remember.

    Fuck, I wish I was at Berkley Square…

    #95375

    Since I like Series VIII it will be a delight rather than a chore for me.

    #95376

    Well I decided to watch the feature-length ones where appropriate, so some of it was worse than it should have been had I stuck the my original plan.

    26 hours for every episode, if you get Series 1 done tonight it is still possible if you are willing to watch it all day.

    Watching Series VIII is on tomorrow’s daily goal list. Item 34, right after “Learn Portuguese.”

    Less than 2 days now!
    I am a bit behind on watching them all, I am up to ‘Bodyswap’. I will finish at 1 in the morning probably but I have 4 less episodes to watch tomorrow.

    I think I still have two episodes of VII still to watch, then I have VIII on DVD. I wish I had them all on DVD…the quality is so much better than Netflix’s system.

    Go on, treat yourself to the DVDs, you know you want to.

    And they’re all pretty cheap now I think, plus although I have no idea about Netflix I imagine you don’t get all the sexual extras. Do it now.

    I’ve decided to ramble on about the episodes in detail elsewhere and spare the posters here who are genuinely very optimistic about BTE from my, currently, rather pessimistic views. If you’re interested:

    I would like to stay away from negative opinions despite how much I hate coming into something so exited, in the past I have went into something very exited and been disappointed. I an 99.9% sure I will not be disappointed by Dwarf I mean it is Dwarf but you can never be too sure.

    I am a bit behind watching all episodes, my laptop was borrowed for 20 minutes (roughly translated into English means 40 minutes aparently) so I won’t finish Series VII till atleast 12.

    I’m going to bed very soon. I finish work tomorrow at 8pm. I’m getting home from work at 8.15pm.

    Meaning, whilst Back to Earth Part 1 is technically 17 hrs or so away, measured in my personal ‘free time consciousness’, I’ll be getting some new Red Dwarf in about 45mins! Yay me! :D
