    Thought I should start a thread for any little bits found in Google Alerts…

    http://www.nerdles.com/2010/11/05/producer-confirms-new-red-dwarf-series/

    <<>>

    This is the best news I could have received today. I am absolutely crazy for Red Dwarf, hopefully both Rob Grant and Ed Naylor will write the new series as I feel that since Grant walked away, the show suffered. Still, any Red Dwarf is better than no Red Dwarf.

    I find it difficult to be too hard on Marjii since most of the feedback on this false confirmation has been negative (I’m talking to you Digital Spy you massive pricks!) it’s nice to see someone getting excited… that said the RD geek in me just can’t let the major mistake slide! Ed Naylor… really?!

    I’ve just seen this post. The google alert claims that this person “hates Red Dwarf because it is no longer on the box….”. However, this doesn’t appear to be in the article now. Doesn’t look as if they know about the Easter specials from last year either!!

    Lol, yeah! It has given me an excellent scanning ability though.

    I just remembered I used to get weekly updates about the Red Dwarf Posse who played 5-a-side (or maybe 6) but haven’t heard anything about them lately. I’ve checked the Futebol Conwy website and can’t find them in the league… aw :o(

    The google alert claims that this person “hates Red Dwarf because it is no longer on the box….”.

    Haha, yeah I saw that one too :oP

    This one has come through….Jane Killick (writer and broadcaster) has released a book called Stasis Leaked- An Unofficial Behind The scenes Guide To The First Series Of Red Dwarf

    “Jane Killick was one of the major writers (if not the major writer) to cover the fantastic television comedy, Red Dwarf during its heyday. She’s gone back to some of her magazine articles, revised them and written an introduction for a new volume looking behind the scenes of the first series.”

    Red Dwarf came in at 29 and Ghostwatch at 76 in this 100 greatest sci-fi/fantasy TV shows list.

    Go on, have a look , you know you want to disagree with it… Babylon 5 came in at number 10 *ducks for cover*

    I’ve never seen BSG so can’t judge either way.

    Participant

    Fringe being as low as #94 negates the whole list. It pisses all over 80% of the whole 100, i.e. should be top 20…

    BSG IS one of the greatest sci-fi/fantasy shows of all-time. It would be top 5 in my own personal list, certainly above the massively overrated Buffy (saying that, I would probably still place it #9 or #10).

    I’d never put TOS up there at #2 either, though you can’t argue with its placing in this list, there’s no doubt it’s one of the most important shows ever made. TNG all the way for me (even if at least half the episodes now make me want to end my own life rather than carrying on watching…..lol)

    Babylon 5 was a show with an ambition that wasn’t matched by the production values or the cast. On numerous occasions it reached beyond its grasp, and while this occasionally produced brilliant television it wasn’t consistent enough to merit the acclaim and praise that so many have bestowed upon it.

    In short, Babylon 5 is a big pile of shit.

    #110987

    Darnit. Run out of barrels.

    Joking aside, when it started* I didn’t like it much at all. It was a bit too soap operish for me.

    Catching series later on I got quite into it though. There were some very intriguing story arcs and characters who straggle the sides of good and evil. (The aliens were generally more interesting characters than the main human characters.) Actually going back and giving series one a proper chance, I liked that too.

    I still find the acting somewhat cheesy in places, as well as the captain’s speechifiying. Amusingly I think they were aware of this and actually made fun of it in one of the episodes, but overall it was pretty good. I generally prefer it to Star Trek, although I like other aspects of that.

    *Yes I’m that old.

    I’ve just been watching the first two stories of Sapphire and Steel on youtube. I loved this show as a kid. You never really expect it to be as good as it was back then, but this is great stuff. I can’t believe that it has been all but forgotten.
    The pace is as you’d expect for the time, but it really lends itself to the creepy atmosphere. It is incredibly cheap looking, but the writing and the performances are excellent, what I’ve seen so far would easily compare with the best of Who. But it’s far darker than Who. Lovely stuff.
    The second story was fantastic. Worth buying.

    Big Finish Productions do a range of ‘Sapphire & Steel’ audio adventures. They are set sometime after their last TV adventure and Sapphire and Steel have been ‘reborn’ into new incarnations, in order to explain why they now look and sound like David Warner and Susannah Harker.

Other ones I didn’t get, Cat priest, Justice computer, Jake Bullet (*sigh*), William and Sebastien Doyle (*double sigh*), Platini, McClaren, etc.
