    Yep I’ve been humming it.

    From High Noon, to what happens in his oast house loft, I’m loving the series.
    Yet another format for Partridge, and adapted well, had me laughing loads.

    I love most of Tikka to Ride. I suffered a bit of series VII but it’s mostly watchable. I enjoyed VIII on broadcast though I acknowledge now it’s a broad serial approach not the best stuff and some jokes grated. I loved Back to Earth I’ve watched it’s new dr who style of shooting and story multiple times and love it’s differences. It’s a revival triumph given it’s clip shop commission origins. I attended Berkeley square and A few Dimension Jumps rejuvenated in interest, as well as 4 Great show recordings in 3 more quality inventive series none of them any more patchy than I find half of the original 8 series to be. Just mostly enjoyed a Special.

    While it’s true the show’s writing is far more hugely repeating itself and themes these days. I still love it.
    Duct soup I loathe and the questionability of parts of time wave need taking out into the woods and shooting. But that’s all. Any completist critic can switch off fuck off and go watch watch Dark Ages with their bullshit Rob was God nonsense, however much I agree that Backwards beats Last Human.

    The usb sticks contains some promo pics, a folder of character voice ring tones, and one video clip.
    It was the bunk room scene with all four debating what to do with the squid in the water tank. fritter the critter etc. That was my laptop we watched it on. We didnt need porn, as the dave girls were there wearing tight tops, the kind that 10 years later Formula one isnt allowed to use probably, let alone car bug enthusiasts.

    Doesnt really matter what episode they leak when a series mostly feels like youve seen it all before. Glad some casual viewers, female veiwers, new viewers and more are enjoying the lightness of what the shows become. I see ratings are up, it’s all nicely shot and i still love jodie Whitaker who i liked in Good vibrations and a few other shows/films before Dr who. She’s a bit tenant bit davison, I believe she is the dr, no issue. But then i didnt mind romana in dr who, or the sarah jane adventures which this show is now mostly like.

    setting the show in a space warehouse, i got echoes of paradise towers, and as i work in warehousing
    found it the dullest dr who ever committed to screen. Not least because it has things that fucking teleport it in, yet you still need convayer belts moving stuff around, what a stupid load of wank.

    Si who else was in hyper drive, who and dwarf? which certainly isnt a holy trinity. its an akward threesome.

    Now I’ve read the Digital Spy review, the sun newspaper of the press run up, and understand how nearly all the clips related to the past of Granada studios, and they even say the setting ficitiously of the studio within the show is supposed to be granada studios, the whole thing makes a lot more sense now. It isnt a mishmash clip show of ideas, i take back most of what I said, its very much a whole idea. I just wasnt aware of all that Granada stuff, those who read things this week from press or had a history of most haunted or other storys about Granada must have loved all this injoking far more emensely than i was able to take in. Genius and groundbreaking comments are well deserved. happy to admit the part that went over my head (in a microwave).

    People were fooled, on twitter. I love a prank or a meta approach. Well done on making some event TV. I made sure i was home for it, when normally i watch on catch up these days.

    The vicar phone story intrigued me. I liked the breakdown and switch to an old episode. But question if that worked then after that, for the people dumb enough to turn off. I found it rather than really being a well executed prank or great episode overall it was a more a clipshow approach homaging previous things related to the kind of joke or trick it was doing itself. Bold but wonky. When a tweet is the best bit of watching telly. I would have prefered them to play it straight for longer making more subtle mistakes supposedly live and then really pull steve’s electrocution as a the big shock, which was a bit done well. in a live behind the scenes bit or something like that. For me it was a disjointed bag and the fact people are calling it “ground breaking” when it was so full of “homage” to things that broke the ground before it etc. I find a depressing reflection on audience mentality. But then i dont watch tv and tweet at the same time. I kind of hope the vicar phone story and Stephanie cole surface in the next series in a more conventional tale.

    Somewhere lost in 1988 is the fact it was to be 13 episodes.

    We have that strike to thank (or blame) for many things. The loss of Alexandra Pigg as Kochanski or she may have been the Kochanski returning end of series 1. If they hadn’t used a slot to re film The End. They could have filmed another episode. But a weaker opening and a duplication of hologramme
    Plots across 13 episodes in a series of 7 and a series of 6. Would you swap? Unusual to have two series within a year but surely that came about because 1987s rehearsed series was reletively quick to remount and so they slid quickly into second commissioned series and with the show fresh in viewers minds really hit home with a strong second series before lister even sailed past his first Christmas!

    I’ve seen a video playback of what Doug said now. He cites this model shot skipping as relevant to the Blu ray delay. So it’s fairly recent. He says finding some of the extras material “there have been adventures” trying to track stuff down, with cataloguing. Which would be the case if something is filed under “skip” lol.

    Mike said they skipped the Samiad model from five children and It, at around the same time

    Very true to all of those points and info.

    I’m not asking directly about 70s & 80s Dr Who dumping or any other show lost in full during the pre vhs era.

    This question, as yet unanswered, is for the timeline of the early red dwarf model fly by film footage being skipped. When did BBC Heritage close? Is the above new information not referred to previously
    In any documentary’s or interviews anywhere? Can we assume from what Doug and mike said about this, that some point between 1999 to 2009 this film was lost, couldn’t be used for back to Earth – X and was recovered allowing it to be used in Skipper? And possibly for the blu ray ? Now.

    I watched the 10%ers on broadcast. It was quite good. Lightly took the piss out of the world of show biz. so much like The young ones then doing that with Filthy rich and catflap etc. Rob and doug could mock the TV industry a little at a time when they had just experienced a lot of it at two main channels etc. There was one episode a bit sci fi TV in plot as well.

    It wasnt Chelmsford 123, or blackadder, and so is a bit of an also ran. Certainly worse than any dwarf and not as good the strangerers which i liked though it went off a bit towards the end.

    Think he reuses ideas and threads a lot, and does something or trys something new with them, so i would probably feel the same way I feel when I spot something referencing the past. Deliberately or less directly, I tend to spot similarities, If done well I dont mind. If it feels crowbarred in it’s a little less successful.

    At one of the TV recordings Ian the warm up guy was gifted a fan in the audience making a claim her boyfriend had made her record a red dwarf porn film with him. I think Ian made her reveal more detail between takes of the actual show. Think it might have been Rimmer and Kochanski cos play, all I really remember is that she said they used a portaloo as the set for Star bug. Theres a tip for series XIII budget constraints.

    Entangled is mostly genius writing of highest standard ever achieved by the whole of Red Dwarf,
    its exposition including the beggs choke scene makes total sense, is consistent with Koestler it’s source material and the episode is unique among the rules of television plotting as a result of it’s non causal approach. Everything is good until the monkey/naked stuff.

    You start off asking a pretty good question about widening the level of enquiry to the cast and crew, and pose what is unanswered that you’d like to hear about…

    I’d say things like the movie script, the aborted episodes of series x with Kochanski and series 8’s ending are the kind of things It would fascinate me to read should they be ever given more details to fans at any point. Equally in working out what in “the beginning” does and doesn’t owe to those movie drafts.

    Hologrammatic shadow gags bother me in explanation no more than microwave kebab plate materialisations, and Archie was too limp a penis gag to ever achieve robo orgasm. so I wouldn’t waste the casts time asking them such wank myself.

    Definitely the school playground reaction to the show that first got me watching it, at age 12. Even just the juvenile adoption of the Smeg insult, required your curiosity to tune in and see what people were referring too. Dont know if that happens today, maybe to reality tv shows that are big on a saturday night or soaps among some people but there is zero talk at my workplace of television as a topic anymore. The odd star wars film is big enough to get the odd comment, thats about it.

    “Doing a live show seems such an odd idea to me. I’m sure it’ll be amazing for the hardcore fans that have the time and money to go to the 02 to see it, but it’s a big fuck you to everyone else.”

    Would you feel that way IF a live show DVD followed Lily?

    While there is some money for making the shows, and then obviously revenue for worldwide sales, repeat screenings, and DVD and Merch etc. I think being a digital channle plus television in general being what it is now compared to the late 80s that the money isnt what it was perhaps back then for a shows stars and creator.

    With Dwarf being a big recognisable brand and idea, the desire to do a live show to exploit that would be something that follows in the wake of Monty python and Still Game selling multiple nights in uk Arenas and bringing in Millions, thats the incentive right there, to make money after 30 years of making this sci fi comedy a sucess, including nearly a decade in the wilderness.

    I enjoyed python in person and Still game on dvd, so either way with Dwarf live I would personally be interested, and i think a more general audience, even a nostalgia audience who isnt even that bothered with the TV show may be interested in the live show when its an event they can attend and talk about. I think the show could stage an interesting new narrative that also includes loads of nods to the shows history or “hits” in the way Still Game did. Could be a great celebration of the show.

    I wonder about Robert in the mask though, even though he is used to say three hours or more on a TV recording night, I think a run at the 02 if ticket sales allowed a week of shows or more etc there might be some issues there in the logistics of it to be considered.

    I had Twentica 36 places higher as my number 10 which was the biggest number of places different to the poll result. No surprise i was at the recording of that one. But a mixture of Kevin Eldon both as performer and the concept of his character and luci phol meeting her at DJ and being great in it all means im really into rewatching this one still XI aired. It gets near gunmen in its ambition and setting and adventure feel, i know many always want character study, but i dont, not always, and its very funny, and its a buggsy malone kind of a sunday watch chill out thing with me since the XI dvd came out.

    Fathers & Suns, Trojan, Krysis, The Beginning, Cured, Siliconia, Give and Take, Officer Rimmer,
    makes 9 Dave ones in my top 36. I’m still enjoying the new era DVDs in general.

    Demons & Angels, Psirens, Justice, Terrorform, Emo Hawk, The Last Day are sitting just outside the bubble. Ive watched the old series tons of times and dont rewatch as often now and these are the ones i dont gravitate to. Where as like the poll Confidence & Paranoia, Rimmerworld, Balance of Power and Waiting for God are fair bit lower. I never rated the first series as being in its stride yet.

    And im not signed up to the love of Mcorp. ive got it a good 25 or more lower down.

    My DVDs (reversed covers where possible) have always sat within a cardboard hard back slipcase for the Ronnie Barker dvd collection. Which previously housed complete porridge and open all hours etc sitcoms. All my pre 1980s comedy’s i removed from their packaging and keep in a wallet system for space. But kept this box as a handy container for dwarf and long before the irony of mr vegas or that Geordie Jesus being in a new open all hours it has kept my dwarf DVDs together, I always felt doug would have approved of the porridge link. 12 series now fills it. So come series 13 I’m fucked. As I don’t see a larger barker box being released. He’s not likely to do a new series.

    I agree Ben, but can’t we just point them to “the strangerers,” the opening few episodes of which I like, and that millenium dark ages thing that I’ve barely rewatched, and then in the last 17 years a few novels. And conclude that had Rob written some solo dwarf since 96 some of it would have been interesting or funny, some of it patchy and crap, and there would still have been long periods of nothing happening with the show on hiatus cus he didnt write anything for a while.

    Nice one Darrell, so the episode about criticism before it’s scheduled online preview, has been previewed ahead of its preview and praised.

    The praiser has had his praise shared, and someone has criticised them for even watching it, and then weve critised the people who preview previewed it by mistake and now we are criticising the criticising woman for criticising the watcher and not saying sorry because she shouldnt have criticised him?

    And all this criticism of watching the crit-cop one has happened because an episode called TIME wave was early?

    My irony circuits are melting.

    There hasnt been a good ending to that bad episode that im aware of yet. I dont think doug has really finished writing that episode yet. he got close in series X.

    clearly that episode had to finish the status quo of the prison story, return the possibility of a red dwarf with only a small crew onboard of central characters, so the see no ships ending might have done that better. but the third thing that was needed was an appetite for dwarf to return, at the time, as a movie.
    “The smeg it is” while total shite helped the audience at least into a very long mode of “sitting and waiting for more dwarf” as opposed to a “dwarfs over forever” mind set. Now thankfully it’s a significant “end of chapter” marker, rather than the rubbish end to a tv show petering out forever and failing to fund a movie.

    Series II following series I in the same year quickly also probably came about
    because of series I being delayed and remounted after strike cancelation. This surely meant series I was late in yearly allocated budget money terms to some degree and the quick commission was possible into a return.

    Why did you combine three people’s Clitorides into one separate, still difficult to find, opinion?

    P.S. Having just discovered the word Clitorides as a legit alternative plural of Clitoris,
    (Vocab i sadly never needed in connection with any seed needing warrior maidens previous to this joke) I now can’t stop shouting in a very loud White Hole Inspired celebration lister voice…

    Provided 1988 to a new series airing in 2017 can be counted as 29 years, (and i dont see why not when dr who is counting beyond 50 years already) red dwarf has gained 7 years on the cancelled Last of the summer wine, which ended in 2010, and if they can make a series in 2025 in just over another 7 years, red dwarf can take the title of longest running uk adult prime time sitcom. At the same time it would be worth shooting Pauline Quirk to avoid Birds of a Feather catching them up on this title.

    Of the longest running british shows of any kind that have achieved more than two decades or more passing with episodes still happening, red dwarf is the only one that has crossed over with at least four of these, after airing episodes or sketches that cross with Coronation Street, Children in need, university challenge, and birds of a feather (the latter by virtue of appearing alongside that shows cast in a comic relief rendition of bohemian rhapsody which began with that Jewish Trollope singing alongside Linda Robson and the late Pauline Quirk)

    He should just wake up having dreamt the last two series,
    As a result of Colin’s mushroom tea. And this scene should be a hidden
    Extra on the dvd release where he reminds colin about that distant fact in time, in an Easter egg where only the three people who give a shit can go and find it, for the general audience they hope to
    Re attract they presumably don’t remember and dont need a resolution to such bullshit.

    “Number nine. Number nine. Number nine.”

    – What is it?

    – I’ve never seen one before, but I’m guessing it’s a white album.

    – A white album?

    – Every revolution has an equal and opposite revolution.
    And number 9 sucks your time out of the universe.

    – So that thing’s spewing experimental noise into the universe?

    -Precisely.

    – That’s why we’re experiencing these curious time phenomena on board.

    “Number nine. Number nine. Number nine”

    – What time phenomena?

    – Like just then, when time repeated itself tediously without any catchy melody

    – so its decided then? We consult Holly?

    – yes so we can holly hop to that universe where Ringo is a good drummer.

    Any jokes about Doug Mclure would have been restricted to his time in westerns rather than the 70’s low budget sci fi b movies he later became associated with that had gone out of fashion by the 90s.

    Ok so Marooned was nov 89, predates Gladiators by a couple of years
    And indeed even makes it an 80s catchphrase of sorts.

    This claims John Fasharnoo ( said in a chris Morris voice) is a git and it wasn’t even used in the first series of Gladiators then, i dont personally remember any kick up of fans at the time though myself.
