    PLOTS FOR SERIES 11?

    I would like to see serious bad guys in some sort of in ship battle!

    That’s nice, honey. You do that…

    Plots for RDXI? In a Twenty fifth anniversary special, the crew rediscover the stasis leak, which now only takes them back as far as the events of series one. As they know their future selves weren’t around at the time, they leave again, but not before hiding and indulging in some BTTF2 style revisiting of old events using split screens and stuff. Even though, admittedly, they kind of did that joke in Stasis Leak anyway. Oh, whatever, it was the first thing I thought of, leave me alone…

    I would like to see an episode revolving around the fact that the word “butter” has “butt” in it.

    I always thought about an episode where the crew find an abandoned DivaDroid space station. It would be very much a Kryten-based story. He finds failed experiments and sympathises with them, kinda like Ripley from Alien Resurrection when she finds the failed clones.

    Red Dwarf/Hyperdrive crossover.

    That is when Kryten realises that the chest plate wasn’t just a decorative circle. but it was a ‘0’ and he was the first in a line of experiments where they kept trying…. and failed…

    How about an anniversary show where the cast introduce clips from past shows, but in costume?

    #202971

    It’ll never happen.

    Si’s would be cheap to make! And the most fitting or the occasion! but they all would have to be there! plus guest stars!

    I can’t think of ideas for future plots, but I do have a scene in my head:

    LISTER: Kryten, I’m home!
    KRYTEN: What? Already, sir?
    LISTER: Yes.

    I want a VII-done-right, almost-TNG-ripoff one where Kryten is flying Blue Midget alone and is either attacked or hit by an asteroid, resulting in him crashing on a nearby moon. The rest of the crew get to him but he’s badly damaged, with his whole body crushed beyond repair. Barely being able to speak, he manages to get out one clear word – ‘nettie’ before closing his eyes. Rimmer, checking a panel on Kryten’s side, says ‘his systems have stopped functioning’ and Lister says ‘no, man, he’s dead…’ and they walk away.

    Later, back on the Dwarf, Lister goes down to Kryten’s quarters. Realising he’s never actually been inside, he tries the door, only to be prompted for an entry code. Punching in ‘nettie’, as the door opens he’s suddenly bombarded with loud music by none other than Rastabilly Skank! After a brief ‘what the smeg?’ he walks in and there’s a mechanoid with its back to him, ‘hi dad…’ she says as she turns and both she and Lister scream.

    Kryten has spent the past 10 years building his own mechanoid child and…yeah there’s not much that could be done with that idea but Nettie would end up rebuilding Kryten and then have to die somehow (as all female characters must do on this show ;))…that would be it.

    Or the crew find a nudist planet, populated by GELFs.

    Or maybe Nettie could fall in love with a green blobby GELF.

    That reminds me of the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode where Red Tornado builds a robot son. It is sad.

    I know we’re taking the piss out of this thread, but I just thought of a cliffhanger…

    Lister and co get attacked by another weird space entity that forces them to choose between two of their greatest desires. Some would be funny, like Cat trying to decide between two different suits, and some would be serious, like Rimmer becoming an officer or having real friends.

    But the final one would be Lister’s decision: the creature opens a portal in space big enough for Red Dwarf to pass through that could take them back to Earth, but they don’t know what time period they’ll wind up in, and it’ll close permanently as soon as they’re on the other side. But the choice comes from this: does he take a chance at returning to Earth in an unknown era, or does he stay out in deep space and keep looking for Kochanski?

    #203045

    Why would he choose Earth in an unknown era at all?

    If it was the Earth he wanted to return to (‘present’ day or at least the time period he originated from), then you got a dilemma. Otherwise, he’s been to Earth several times already, out of his own time. He didn’t stay then, why would he abandon his dream now?

    They should do one with dinosaurs. And it should have eight parts, each more tedious than the previous.

    I want an episode in which Lister says “Starbug too” and Kryten mishears him. Hilarious consequences.

    I want episodes where some really intriguing, interesting concepts were introduced, not just hokey stupid idea like dinosaurs, ideas that make you think well past watching the episo— what? That’s happened already?… So it has!!

    Just because for some reason VIII doesn’t hit your G&T-spot, I don’t see how the concepts could never have been turned into better received episodes.

    Series VII was choc-a-bloc with brilliant ideas, I thought. VIII had some too.

    Rimmer meets Brittas.

    I’d like an episode where they explore more of the ship like everyone elses quarters etc.

    BRING BACK HATTIE AND STARBUG!

    I’d like to see them revisit old parts of the ship. Not necessarily key sets like the bunk rooms, but it’d be nice if they had to go to a different part of the ship in an episode and the set design evoked the series 1-2 look or 3-5 look or even the BTE style.

    Episode 1: Kryten is arrested when he is mistaken for a serial killer. After he is exonerated, Rimmer, Lister, and he return to Red Dwarf.

    Episode 2: Simulant television executives approach Rimmer and Lister to write a pilot for a sitcom. Hogey the Roguey begins to stalk both Rimmer and Kryten.

    Episode 3: Cat uses Kryten as his witness when the former refuses to pay for a speeding ticket. In court, they make up a story of why he was he going that fast: Cat was trying to stop Kryten from killing himself because he didn’t get a job as a banker.

    Episode 4: Rimmer’s parents come to Red Dwarf to see a medi-bot for the back pain of Rimmer’s father. Morty Rimmer thinks his wallet has been stolen at the medi-bot’s. So he leaves without hearing the diagnosis. Rimmer is asked to explain to his parents why he does not wear the watch they gave him. Lister has an unsuccessful plan to hold out for more money for their simulant pilot (13,000 all together).

    Episode 5: Rimmer tries to buy his watch back from Uncle Frank, who found it in the garbage, having been thrown there by Rimmer. Lister tries to resurrect the fledgling simulant deal, while Kochanski plans a break up from her psychotherapist with Kryten’s help. Lister gets the pilot back, by accepting less money (8,000).

    Episode 6: Rimmer agrees to visit a boy who lives in a plastic bubble on the way to Holly’s parents’ cabin. Rimmer loses his way, though, and Kochanski, Lister, and Holly visit the boy instead. Kryten goes to the cabin with Rimmer’s ex-girlfriend, resulting in a fire

    And perhaps open each episode with Doug doing some observational comedy about telesales.

    I find it funny that Lister is George. Also the visual of Rimmer doing stand up comedy.

    I would prefer the scene be shot without a studio audience, but with pauses for laughter left in.
