    >he might have legitimate reasons for his grievances.

    When he chooses to publicly air ‘grievances’ like the fact that Doug came up with an in-plot idea to explain Holly’s absence and punctuates it with “This gives you an idea of what the people who make Red Dwarf (GrantNaylor) are like”, as if it’s some personal slight to him, we can gauge enough to have an opinion, I think.

    “I watched Chris, Robert and Danny on BBC Breakfast News this morning. Talk about laughs take a holiday.” is just nasty and unnecessary.

    “Not one of the cast have got in touch with me which just shows how self centred they are.” Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

    >I think its awful to see such nasty character assassinations about him.

    I think it’s awful to see a supposed professional post a myspace bulletin slamming his former co-stars for not being funny on breakfast TV.

    My guess? The writer(s?) in the meta-universe have written a series 9 where the crew all die, and if it makes it to air the real crew will die too, and that will be the ‘pleading for more life’ thing.

    I don’t know about that…what about the Holly watch? Surely they could have used that more if they’d really been desperate to keep the character.

    I’ve always thought that Holly’s gradual fade-out was more due to Kryten taking over exposition duties.

    >Maybe ?series IX? is something that occurs within the specials, in the meta-universe where Red Dwarf is fiction. The way Doug was talking implied that there was something precluding a series IX that would become clear once we watched the shows.

    That’s an interesting idea. I kind of hope that turns out to be true.

    Either that or Red Dwarf IX is going to be like the Traveling Wilburys Volume 2.

    >Ok, it probably was a bit unfair to just send him an email telling him he wasn?t required.

    Personally I think it’s more presumptuous of Norm to think he would be included in a revival. I mean, he doesn’t appear in the majority of Red Dwarf, though of course he is a substantial part of it’s legacy. All the same, an e-mail seems perfectly adequate to me, especially considering he clearly has such a low opinion of his RD co-stars and creative team. He seems to have a very strange view of the world. None of his castmates called him? So what? Clearly he’s not friends with them. Do you call everyone who ever did a stint at your place of work when you’re given a new assignment?

    I wonder if the way Norm is being will affect the way anyone sees his performances in the old episodes. I know rationally, it shouldn’t affect anything, but I’m reminded of the fact that I’ve never seen the more Kramer-heavy episodes of Seinfeld in the same light since Michael Richard’s racism ‘incident’ (not that I’m by any means comparing what MR did with Norm’s whingey-old-fartedness).

    It’s bizarre, because Craig’s problems certainly didn’t affect my perception of Lister. I think I find this more disappointing, personal and distracting RD-wise because he so clearly either greatly dislikes or is jealous of everyone else involved.

    If anyone has a right to be pissed at GNP, I’d argue it was Hattie. I’ve already posted a lot about my preference for her Holly performances over Norm’s, but aside from that (and I admit I may be making a few assumptions here) she took on the role he willingly left behind, was quite suddenly written out in series 6, and when the character was reintroduced, was passed over in favour of the person who’d already turned his back on it once. Despite this, she continues to attend fan conventions, put in RD appearances (i.e. Beat The Geek) when requested, and has to my knowledge never voiced much in the way of bitterness about her tenure with the show.

    When all’s said and done, almost every franchise has one. Norm’s ours.

    The last time I saw his show he was championing Alice Cooper for the Rock N’ Roll Hall Of Fame (as well he should). Glad that he’s done well for himself.

    His English accent was pretty terrible on the DCS – though I was even more surprised when I was in the US to turn on the TV and hear a Scottish voice hosting a network show.

    It would be fantastic if he had Bobby on the show – anyone know if they’ve ever met?

    How anyone can not see that the Red Dwarf crew being chased by an unrealistic CGI dinosaur and making it a cow vindaloo while Kryten’s cock runs amok = worst RD episode ever is absolutely beyond me. Sure there’s other episodes that are bad, but that one’s a fucking travesty.

    >Individual BITR and Pete parts don?t count because, aside from suffering from excessive motherfuckerage, they?re not complete episodes

    It aired as an episode, it’s on the DVD as an episode, it is an episode. Just because it continues a story-arc from a previous episode doesn’t change that. So there.

    I don’t think getting a disease makes you deserve respect. It just makes you unfortunate. Being respectable, dignified, and respectful to others earns my respect, and Jade Goody fails on all counts. I don’t expect that to matter to anyone, by the way.

    I just don’t see how respect should be automatically doled out for something as inevitable as disease. You can only be good or bad by the choices you make, not unavoidable circumstance.

    True enough, though this is what leads me to believe the Xtended-for-DVD idea may have been dropped:

    http://www.reddwarf.co.uk/news/2009/02/20/back-to-earth-the-trilogy/

    “Doug Naylor had, as ever, written Back to Earth’s two-part story a little long – deliberately so, in fact, in preparation for a possible ‘Xtended cut’ on DVD.

    Yet as the script evolved, it soon became clear that every scene in the show was necessary. There was no padding. And with later drafts maximising on ideas hinted at in the first versions, two 30-minute scripts (each already intended to be around 23 minutes, after editing, for broadcast on the a station that includes commercial breaks) slowly grew into a story that ran a total of around 70 minutes.”

    Sounds good. I was thinking about suggesting some sort of post Back To Earth broadcast Skype thing too.

    >Robert Llewellyn loses for playing the Data Doctor in Red Dwarf, which is possibly the worst comedy performance ever.

    True enough.

    > Maid Marian > The Brittas Empire

    I’d say they were about even, but it must be about ten years since I’ve watched either.

    The Muppet Show DVDs have some interesting ones.

    Oh, shut up.

    >I love Dracula: Dead and Loving it. Peter MacNicol is awesome in it.

    Peter MacNicol is awesome, period. Anyone know what he’s up to lately?

    And since we’re on cheesy comedy memories, what do you all think of The Man With Two Brains?

    That’s brilliant.

    >Roll on series 4. I don?t want that to be the end either, though it probably will be. Maybe a special to round it off?

    That sounds about right. No point dragging it out.

    >Seen the first episode. And I laughed quite a lot. It?s also clearly meant to be against discrimination.

    I know…maybe it would have been better without an audience? When you have people laughing just because someone’s been called a Paki, it certainly clouds wherever the writer’s sympathies lie.

    Racism or anti-racism aside, I really did think it was unfunny and embarrassing.

    >I don?t think it ever quite gets the recognition it deserves. Ronnie Barker the best comedy actor of all-time?

    I’d say so. Richard Beckinsale was superb in Porridge too. Can’t help but wonder what he’d have gone on to do.

    >I remember at a DJ I asked Chris, ?A Prince Among Men?why??

    For some reason the only line I remember from that entire series is ‘Nobody likes a floater, do they?’

    So speaking of lousy British sitcoms, has anyone else seen any of Curry and Chips? Not recommended if you want to keep your respect for Spike Milligan intact.

    >Mostly the rubbishness of the writing.

    This from someone who rates Red Dwarf 8.

    Sorry, couldn’t resist.

    My complaint with the movies is that we haven’t had a single story as good as ‘Jurassic Bark’ or ‘Luck of The Fryrish’. To me, those kind of stories (which Futurama has excelled at) would have been even more amazing given room to breathe in the 90 minute format.

    I enjoyed this one and ‘Beast With a Billion Backs’ the most. I must admit though, I think Futurama definitely works better in an episodic format.

    >I think you might have missed out a few key points from Hitler, there. Unless you?re deliberately being fucking stupid.

    >>The hypocritical tabloid press touted Jade as the next coming of Hitler a year or two back. Now she?s dying, she?s the new Princess Diana.

    See that? That’s a quote from Neandercarl, which I was responding to with:

    >As others have said, from what I can surmise, this works as follows:

    Ignorant + loudmouthed + racist + bully = Hitler

    Ignorant + loudmouthed + racist + bully + cancer = Brave Jade

    Read the thread before you suggest I’m ‘fucking stupid’. We were discussing press perceptions/depictions of Jade, and the sea-change they’ve undergone since her diagnosis. You’d have noticed that if you’d pulled your head out of your arsehole long enough to actually put things in context, and before dealing out the insults.
