    Bloody hell, Babylon 5 gets satisfying in the middle. Especially catching up with the long-teased future echoes and being gifted a whole load more. If you’ve got your story all plotted out, what better way to show off than jumping all over the coherent timeline? I can’t remember shouting at the screen so much since Heaven Sent in 2015.

    This is what I remember standing out when I first watched it year ago. No other TV series before or since scratched that same itch of presenting this coherent longform story, it really is incredible at times.

    War Without End was an absolute fucking belter.

    You’ve prompted me to do the same. There’s loads of clever, creative designs on there based on original artwork, but then there’s the reams of stuff where people have just nicked proper photos or logos without doing anything to them. That’s the kind of blatant unthinking copyright infringement that would ultimately ruin it for everyone else if the IP owners got wind of it.

    Also, I spotted someone selling stickers of a meme that Kris Carter of this parish made. Daisy Bryar is a fucking thief. https://www.redbubble.com/i/sticker/Red-Dwarf-Cat-Meme-by-DaisyBryar/46162499.EJUG5

    Worst of 3 – 5?

    Years ago I’d have said Meltdown, but no – it’s great. I ‘get’ it now. So I think the eps that fall flattest for me would be Demons & Angels, DNA and Camille. But they still tower over VIII.

    I love the overall visuals of the series.

    Kryten’s assessment with Dr McLaren was great.

    The reappearance of Chen and Selby was really nice to see.

    Some epic lines, I loved “Follow the Rimmer-shaped blur!”

    The delayed-time fight in Hollister’s office was superbly done.

    Cassandra – a great performance.

    Not so much misheard as misunderstood, and apologies if this has already been mentioned in the preceding 400 posts:

    Until very, very recently, I heard it as ‘Rasta Billy Skank’, as in the name of an artist/person.
    It’s only within the last few months that it clicked it was ‘rastabilly’ like ‘rockabilly’. I think cos I saw it written somewhere.

    At the time, I was pretty gutted. I was super-invested in Red Dwarf VI, and the cliffhanger ending properly messed with me. Having to wait three years back then felt like an eternity, and the delay caused by Rob and Doug splitting, and Craig getting arrested, and Chris wanting to leave too… man, it felt like the rug had been pulled out from under me. In many ways, it helped strengthen my character, and make me the hardened, rough’n’tough emotionless man-husk I am today.

    I don’t know. As a kid, it was always my least favourite of Series IV, but I’ve never been able to isolate why. As I’ve grown older, I’ve found it funnier and funnier, and now it’s an episode I really enjoy.

    Maybe it was because it was at the end of my off-broadcast-VHS tapes, so it took longer to to get to and got rewatched less? Maybe because even for Dwarf it was a bit more out-there and bizarre? I dunno. Maybe now we have a lot more Red Dwarf that is of much worse quality (looking square at you Series VIII), it raises Meltdown by comparison.

    What if Starbug had been used in Series II, and Blue Midget was the main craft in Series III onwards? Would it have affected the show dynamics?

    What if Series VII had been filmed in front of the audience? Would that have affected the timing of the jokes?

    You’re presuming there that the script editor and producers AREN’T already doing this – they can offer advice as loud and judgmental as they like (Well, to a point – you’ve got to be professional and courteous with this stuff too), but it’s up to Doug to decide if he wants to heed that advice and implement it.

    I do think Doug needs Someone who is willing to be abit more judgmental on his script though, like someone needs to be able to say Doug is this personality tuck idea really necessary to the plot? or do you think perhaps you should cut some stuff out of Officer Rimmer so you can give it an actual ending?

    I don’t think Doug has bitten off more than he can chew. I think that Series X (and maaaaybe Back To Earth, but that production is a crazy anomaly within Red Dwarf anyway) was the only instance where things seemed to get out of hand, and even then the problems didn’t seem to be ‘Doug generated’ – he seemed to be putting out the fires rather than starting them. How much is Charles Armitage involved nowadays? He didn’t come across as particularly helpful in the Series X documentary, and he’s nowhere to be seen in the XI docs.

    I think the current set-up where Baby Cow is now involved is a much better situation for everyone. You can also see how much more assured Doug’s direction has become, tracking from X, through Over To Bill, through XI/XII.

    That said – Personally, I’d love to see Andy DeEmmony have another crack at the directorial whip, but that’s because I’ve been watching a lot of Red Dwarf VI again recently.

    Amen. Series III through VI were my ‘first broadcasts’ that caught me around 11 to 14 years old, and had a staggering impact on my sense of humour, creativity, everything. I and II are folded in with that as I rapidly consumed them on VHS around the same time. VII and VIII caught me on a slightly waning interest and at a more critical time, as I was going through university and ‘growing up’ (I guess…?). By contrast BTE, X and XI are hitting me hard in the nostalgia stakes, and making me long for a simpler time in my life, so they too have a much different feel for me compared to the earlier series, but I’m really enjoying them.

    I’d love to be able to go into the entire run fresh – watch I thru XI in one block, seeing each episode for the first time. That must be mindblowing, seeing a timelapse of Red Dwarf like that.

    I love VI. It felt like a real shake up, losing Red Dwarf and Holly, new sets, the crew really forced together, working as an actual team. And the gags were good, and constant and consistent. The vis fx were superb, the direction felt fresh. Every aspect of production felt on top of it’s game, and it’s got a fucking KILLER ending.

    Sure the running gags can get a bit tiresome, and the Cat’s burgeoning stupidity wasn’t good to see, but overall, the series is more hit than miss.

    Yeah, it lacks a slower paced “character” episode. But that’s not to say there’s no character driven moments! Look at Out of Time, as the crew are at appalled at what they are destined to become. The banquet scene in Legion may be slapstick (albeit slapstick done well, as opposed to the blatant pantomime of VIII), but it’s got heaps of character.

    Nah, I love VI. It’s an absolute fucking corker.

    On topic, excellent interview with Chris, and very interesting when held up and examined with 20 years of hindsight.

    Yes, they absolutely should have continued Red Dwarf after VI, and I’m glad they did.

    Although, yes, it has taken a very long time to recapture itself after all the upheaval that was wrought between VI and VII, but we’re now into the strongest run of episodes for a long time, and I’m glad we’ve got them and more to come.

Shared a minibus journey with him to the venue, and he didn’t seem to know much about this show, it was something he’d worked on last year he said, but that was it, felt pretty dismissive of it to my mind.

    Still, we had a good chat about other stuff, I avoided much Dwarf talk, but we spoke about Rik Mayall, Alan Rickman and Victoria Wood’s passing, and Norman’s interactions with them on various projects.

    Gah it fills me with conflicted emotions, this costume.

    Nothing has had as much influence on my sense of humour, understanding of television production, writing, and my own creative streak as Red Dwarf has.

    It’s a show that (while having it’s good and bad years) I’ve always had a huge connection and love for, and always will.

    It’s a show that’s introduced me to several wonderful people, and a funny take-no-shit community that I’m proud and privileged to be a part of.

    It also introduced me to my first wife, but that was around the time of Red Dwarf VIII. Did nothing good come of that series?!?

    Anyways, happy birthday RD. Keep ’em coming.

    No laugh track. Film it on 1988 video, then add ‘film effect’ over the top. Then add another film effect for good measure. No model shots. only CG. But not 3D models. 2d cut outs, CSO’d in, with blur effects added. No Howard Goodall music, only library music. The credit music would be the extra verse shitty versions from those god-awful sci-fi theme CD’s SFX used to give away.

    A remastered Skutter would zoom across the screen at 3 minute intervals.Chris Barrie wouldn’t be in it. Norm would have a six minute monologue in act one. Kryten would screech a lot, and have a mask only glued on to Roberts face at his eyelids. The LED’s on his costume flash, but only on the right shoulder. Cat gets a six minute long dance scene with Starbug.

    Lister gets given a long, noble speech that inadvertently comes across (on reflection) as a bit rapey and objectifying women. Lister also has no scenes with the rest of the cast, and appears only by being green screened into the set. Every computer speaks in a racist, stereotypical accent. The sets are designed by Paul Montague, from his rejected notes. Rob Grant returns, but he and Doug only write every other word and do not collaborate in the same room. Every fourth sentence contradicts a previously established bit of Red Dwarf lore. There are bad, Remastered style sound effects played at an obscene volume.

    The cast of Red Dwarf USA guest star, as the show is a backdoor pilot.

    The show is filmed single camera, but on a massive Red camera rig that can only be crane mounted, and records at 50K, so every hair is visible even after the film effect processing. The camera hard drives do not have back ups, and are stored on the roof of Grant Naylor Productions, unprotected, for six weeks before any post is started. Babycow Productions are employed to provide craft services only. The show then airs once on Dave, and is cut off halfway through due to a transmission error – but that’s ok, because it leaked online the night before when the broadcast tapes were accidentally affixed to a Dave-sponsored advertising drone that crashes just outside Milton Keynes.

    Buzzfeed later run an article proclaiming that you won’t believe which episode is voted to be the best episode of Red Dwarf.

    I think the story goes that they were supposed to key in a shot of the cargo bay there. but I guess due to the lighting (look at the blue overspill around the edges) they couldn’t key it out properly, and the best they could do at the time was to whack that grey backdrop in.

    Even ReMastered struggled fixing because the camera was handheld, and that was the big problem at that time.

    I’d guess nowadays the shot could be fixed, but it’d still take some doing, what with the crappy matte lines and the blue colouring around the edges that’d need re-colourising.

    IT’S ALL PART OF THE CHARM, etc etc.

    Fresh Meat is lovely, and I deeply enjoyed Inbetweeners (although I’ve yet to see the film). Mongrels was cracking, and I think very underrated. Rev was an oddity… very old school in tone I felt, but with modern production…. a strange one. Quite good though.

    I’ve still enough left for your three, no worries! Anniescribe, I wasn’t at DJ unfortunately, but I’ll send these State-ward for the same price, so Paypal me £7 or equivalent in $, and that’ll be fine. Same for you Ben.

    Aye, it was a cracking convention – I sat at my table from 10 till 5, and didn’t stop sketching. Brilliant fun, but meant I missed EVERYTHING. Gah. I heard that the RD guys liked my print of them, and a few people showed me signed ones, which was nice. Nice to meet Monsieur Fletcher in the Fletch so to speak, and we had a good ol’ natter for a while, even going as far as to praise the G&T staff, even though they were nowhere around. Weird of us, but hey.

    After the event shut up shop, as I was leaving I finally got to meet Norman, Danny and Hattie, who were all just brilliant – I’d never met Danny before, I’d only ever seen him in photographs. He was exactly as I’d always imagined, only much shorter.

    Anyways, I only printed 30 of the Dwarf print, and I’ve only got a few left, so I’m shilling the suckers for £7 (included postage you lucky effers), so if anyone wants one, paypal me at drivaaar at ninjapea dot co dot uk.

    It’s A4, looks like this, high quality glossy print, and is a right old continuity fuck-up.

    I know, right? But Ben! Where could people find said publication?

    Yes, I’m a comic guest there. Feel free to swing by my table matey, and say hello!

    I’ll be sketching, selling my ‘Lou Scannon’ comics, and I should have a Red Dwarf based print up there too if I can finish it in time.

    I’ll also be harassing the cast before the doors open to get some signatures before the queues go apeshit… I made a complete dick of myself in front of Chris and Robert last time, I imagine this time will be NO different. *sigh* I’m such a social fucktard. But I digress…

    Anyone else going?

    I’d recommend watching them too – listening is all well and good, but you’ll only be getting half the experience really. :)

    I first saw Rimmer’s death video in Me2 on first broadcast, but my first full ep was Backwards. A full on brilliant intro episode, and converted me into a fan pretty much on the spot.

    Ah, couldn’t remember, not seen the movie for a while. But I’ll wager being riddled with bullets didn’t help ol’ numero Seven either.

    Why were the humans being abducted? Why did no-one at the hospital spot the little girl who was there by herself for a YEAR? And didn’t being defibrilated actually finish off the Seventh Doctor?

    Gah.

    I loved the start of this episode. Then it all went a bit meh in the middle (apart from that nice little scene with Amy and The Doctor as he told her he missed her, and she was the first face his new face saw). And finally the end stormed in too quickly with a wave of the sonic and that was it. Very, very poor.

    No, I wrote to a few as well. The names, sadly, escape me now.

    Hi all

    So my RDX USB stick arrived this morning, and VERY nice it is too. Mini review coming up.

    Despite Naylor Junior’s concerns, the disc was empty, so no spoilerific content there – the marketing dept had obviously eaten their Weetabix that day. The thing is credit card sized, with the actual USB 2.0 interface (how did they know?!) flipping out from the back of the stick. It’s got 4GB capacity, so you can CRAM this thing with an obscene amount of porn, should you be so inclined.

    The front has a cast shot, with a particularly bad pic of Kryten gurning horribly, but everyone else looks good. Print quality is decent, bit fuzzy, but that’s likely due to the rough-ish plastic it’s built from. The back is all black, with the DAVE logo emblazoned.

    One neat little thing about this was the small “Thanks for supporting RDX” note included from Richard Naylor. It was written on a bit of cut-out RDX script. No idea what episode it’s from, it contains a model shot description, and one line of the Cat’s – “Budski”.

    Here’s some pictures hosted on Photobucket that you can stuff into your teeming sockets like pies for your eyes, you fat eyed people.

    I’m sure I heard it too. When Rory finds Amy is wearing a braclet after all.
