    Jo TORDFC’s original thread has now reached the dreaded pagination stage, so let’s start afresh for the sake of all our sanities.

    10 Reasons To Be Excited [about Red Dwarf X]:

    http://whatculture.com/tv/red-dwarf-x-10-reasons-to-be-excited.php

    Quite a good article, that, although make sure you have an ad blocker to negate the scumbag tactic of splitting a reasonably long article into 11 pages.

    Is that the same article Mr. Ellard tweeted a few weeks ago? I know that one is dated yesterday but it seems familiar.

    I’ve noticed that WhatCulture seem to have a habit of recycling their RD articles. They repurposed an article that had clearly been written in 2010 (as it referenced BTE being “last year”) earlier this year, saying that they hoped there’d be a studio audience while using… a picture of an RDX studio audience.

    They seem to put far more effort into their page saying how great they are and listing all the amazing reasons why you should work for them for free than they do on fact-checking the articles, it seems…

    There’s currently an article on there entitled “The Avengers 2: 5 Ways To Make It Suck Less”.

    This should tell you everything you need to know about that site.

    Christ, yes, reading around the site is *not* a nice experience. Still think he’s got a *fairly* decent grip on Red Dwarf, but that’s mainly because he thinks the new series will be good and I think he’s right.

    On the page about how wonderful they are, there’s an entire paragraph given over to the fact that one of the reasons you should write for them is that they use WordPress.

    And, what’s more, instead of having subeditors who’ll format and post your articles for you, you get to do it yourself! That’s actually a plus!

    Well, I imagine where RD’s concerned, the Radio Times probably only look at sites like TOS, Dave and, obviously, the cast’s personal blogs. :/

    #117654

    To be fair, it IS the Radio Times*.

    *yes, I am subscribed to it, so I can be as cynical as I want.

    At first it just looks like shoddy research, then you realise it’s complete ineptitude.

    Yes, I can forgive someone for not knowing how many series there have been, but the brackets thing sealed it.

    Maybe they’re choosing to pretend the actual Series 8 and BtE never happened. And the X is because…

    because…

    Due to my overwhelmingly bitter and irrational hatred of Series VII, VIII and BtE, this will of course be Series VII in my custom DVD cases.

    Fanon like that pisses me off. Piss and moan all you like, but that doesn’t mean VII, VIII and BtE didn’t happen.

    Well X will still be referencing VIII at some point. Though I’m fine with Fanon myself if that’s what it’s called choosing to ignore parts of somethings past. (new word hadnt heard it.) Given Rob and Doug alter things themselves.

    I don’t think I could actually get the word ‘fanon’ to come out of my mouth unless it was accompanied by the regurgitated remnants of my last meal.

    Piss and moan all you like but it doesn’t automatically mean I have to change my opinion on them because they’re red dwarf, or indeed simply exist.

    I don’t believe I said anywhere I’m delusionally denying there existence, I just don’t have any intention of buying the DVDs, thus in my particular selection that I’ve made custom box art for, the new series will be VII as when I do it’s custom cover there’s nothing between it and VI.

    The point of my post was that I didn’t own VII, VIII and BtE on DVD because I don’t like them, I was under the impression that was my prerogative.

    Not sure where you got the rest of the bollocks in your post from.

    That’s fine, but labelling X as VII is a bit mad, isn’t it? I mean, actually going to the trouble of making an alternative cover for the DVD labeling the series as another? Hardly sane, is it?

    I mean, I don’t like the first, fifth, ninth and tenth Star Trek movies, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to sit at my computer for hours on end so that I can “correct” the film numbers.

    Throw in the fact that you don’t even know whether or not series X is even going to be any good, and… yeah, silly.
