    “So, we’re going from “The Odd Couple” in space to “Whatever Happened To the Likely Lads” followed by “One Foot In the Grave” and in another 10 years “Last Of The Summer Wine”…..all in space.

    Sounds good to me.”

    Well, no. It would be just one episode, not the entire premise of the show :P

    > I keep seeing Bill Bailey?s name crop up in Holly discussions – and yet I?ve never seen anyone give a reason for why they think he?d be good. He?s great, no doubt about it, but is he really Holly? Can anyone explain why he?s the name that jumps to everyone?s mind?

    Norman portrayed Holly as just slow (and then senile).
    Hattie portrayed Holly as ditzy (and then senile).
    Bill would be good at portraying Holly as bumbling (and senile).

    My vote goes for Hattie, but I can certainly see how Bill would be good as a re-cast.

    Stabby – just watched it again. You must do parts 2 and 3…please! This version works so much better, the comic timing is better and it shows that the material (of episode 1 at least) was good, but simply needed proper editing. Don’t know if parts 2 and 3 will be a similar case, but damn I’m impressed with your work here.

    Ooooooooooooh! Well, in that case I’ll simply reiterate my position on laughter track/live audience comedy. I like it, it’s fun and perfectly acceptable in modern comedy. But it’s not essential. Not if the material is ball-bustingly funny on its own. Spaced always made me laugh and still does – and that has no laughter track, nor does it need one. Quality material, then, is more important than a laughter track. If it’s funny enough, you’re your own laughter track :)

    How about because comedy should be funny?

    There’s plenty of funny TV in this decade. TV comedies, instead of sitcoms. So there’s no reason at all that Red Dwarf can’t remain funny. Other than the fact Doug can’t seem to write decent jokes anymore.

    I agree that any future Dwarf should have Doug as master over the plots, but new writers in to write the comedy and make the show funny again. Cos whether it’s more sci-fi or more drama that’s brought in, Red Dwarf is essentially a comedy show and always has been. Hence people’s ‘desperate need for laughter’. Not that unreasonable a demand from a comedy show.

    I take it from this that you’ve not watched the Quadrilogy’s superb Director’s Cut of Alien 3 then? Because Golic (Paul McGann) features heavily in it. It features the original storyline that Fincher wanted of them trapping the alien initially, as planned…but then it all goes horribly wrong courtesy of the demented Golic.

    It’s a much better cut of the movie and I think it’s a stunning close to the trilogy. Yes…trilogy. Resurrection does not exist in this dojo.

    > Speaking of continuity holes: it seems BtE renders Prelude to Nanarchy definitively non-canonical. According to Prelude (IIRC), the crew never got back to Red Dwarf after visiting the Esperanto. So Cat would never have got the chance to get the Joy Squid back on board.

    Fuck that! The biggest question is just when exactly during the events of ‘Back To Reality’ did The Cat get the chance to find the joy squid and stash it on Starbug. Answer: He didn’t, hence continuity error.

    After BTE: Blade Runner, does anyone else think Doug might once again attempt to produce humour in Red Dwarf through ‘homage’? I was thinking about this today at work and wondered what a series of Red Dwarf, with every episode being an homage to a different story, might turn out like.

    Well, here’s my suggestion for an episode (prepare to engage sarcastic laughter mode :P)

    Episode: The Admirable Kryten
    Whilst investigating a mysterious planet, Starbug is forced to make a crash landing. Unable to repair the ship, the crew is forced to forraging on this strange new world. Kryten, using his knowledge of basic survival, takes it upon himself to lead the group. But as he becomes accustomed to his new power, he begins to grow meniacal in his control over the others.

    Aside from the blatant homage to the JM Barrie play, you could also use homages to other greats in this episodic formula

    – trapped in a strange place and forced to survive, leading to development of a hierarchy = LORD OF THE FLIES
    – both Lister and The Cat injured, forcing them to rely on Kryten = BETTER THAN LIFE (NOVEL)
    – Kryten’s brain is also damaged in the crash which is why he eventually starts to become maniacal in controlling the others and finally chases them across the planet in a murderous frenzy = MISERY, THE SHINING

    That last one in particular I can imagine Bob Llewellyn playing beautifully – Kryten as Kathy Bates would be fun to watch :D

    While we’re on the subject of Blue Midget – I never worked out the difference between Blue Midget, White Midget and White Giant. I seem to recall all three being mentioned at least once in the series, but they all seemed to look the same as Blue Midget. At least Starbug was split into Starbug 1 and Starbug 2, much easier to follow! :P

    Here’s another plot point/characterisation issue that stuck out horribly for me tonight – did nobody else think the idea of Kryten telling Lister that Kochanski was dead if she really wasn’t was also out of character? To lie to that extent – when we’ve seen before that Kryten still struggles with lying unless his behaviour protocols have been disabled – seems utterly bizarre.

    And what was all that stuff the kids were saying about Lister drinking himself to death and basically becoming despondent and depressed BEFORE her supposed death? Surely this is how he would become AFTER he learned Kochanski had died? And based on how she was portrayed in series VII and VIII, is it even remotely credible that Kochanski would be the kind of person to do a runner if a friend was falling to pieces and needed help?

    I’ll be tuning in for Part 3 – I’ve got to know now how it finishes. But that’s simply plot intrigue, I’m not expecting any humour now. And that makes me very sad…just thinking of Red Dwarf without jokes makes me sad. This was the show that, alongside Monty Python’s Flying Circus and Blackadder, defined what comedy was for me. I first started watching Red Dwarf when I was 10 years old and now I’m 25 years old. This was one of the most important comedy shows in the world to me. And it’s just a crying shame that, if this is to remain the blueprint for any future Red Dwarf, it will no longer represent that for me.

    So yeah…I’ll be watching Part 3. But last night I was looking forward to Part 2. The only thing I’m looking forward to tomorrow is a roast lamb dinner.

    > Although he DID kill the entire crew of Red Dwarf. Okay, it was an accident and Listers fault for not being there to help on the drive plate, but kill them he did :)

    But mate, you know what I’m getting at. They died through Rimmer’s incompetence. He didn’t kill them as in setting out to kill everyone by deliberately causing the drive plate accident. It was exactly that – an accident. And he didn’t murder anybody either. He also carried the guilt of it for the rest of his death. He felt so guilty about it that the justice computer mistook it for culpability. In BTE, he shows no guilt over wasting Katerina – and that’s just out of character, plain and simple.

    > Perhaps even Rimmer killing Katerina all seem a bit out of character.

    I mentioned this in the comments for Part 2 and got shot down. ‘They established that killing a hologram isn’t murder’ was the party line from fellow fans. But this kind of misses the point entirely for me – it’s the fact that Rimmer is WILLING to do this, that he is suddenly CAPABLE of killing that is out of character. He’s never actually killed anyone in the whole history of Red Dwarf. Even when he talks about being happy to kill the simulant were he sleeping in ‘Justice’, you know he’s just trying to egg Lister on. Put him in a room with a bazookoid and a sleeping simulant and he’d more than likely do a runner rather than risk fucking it up and the simulant living – because Rimmer is a COWARD, not a KILLER/MURDERER.

    And BTE seems to be going the same way. ‘It was just a TV show’ is far too close to ‘It was just a dream’ for my liking. Part 3 tonight may prove me wrong, but you know what I’m getting at I’m sure.

    > My point about the books was they are seperate as you say. That?s a logic that I?m also increasingly applying to Doug-era eps.

    I’ll agree that it seems to be increasingly the case that Doug writes episodes like he wrote ‘Last Human’.

    > Doug simply doesn?t seem capable of the series 4-6 stuff that you?re seeking.

    By that I get the feeling you’re saying ‘He can write sci-fi plots as good as 4-6, but he can’t write jokes that good’. In which case, maybe it really is time to let Red Dwarf die so that Doug Naylor can go and write some sci-fi books or even films. If he can’t write comedy anymore, it’s time to pack Red Dwarf in because it is and has always been a comedy show. No comedy, no show. You can’t just take out the comedy and say ‘Oh, it was a stylistic change’. It’s a comedy show! If other comedy shows scrapped the comedy and became dramas, people would be like WTF?! I don’t accept that Red Dwarf is a special case.

    > It?s really down to whether as a fan of the old Dwarf you can still get on board with it?s new format of quirky sci-fi and comedy, as opposed to the sit-com based stylings of Dwarf past.

    Quirky sci fi comedy is fine by me sir – but there doesn’t appear to be any comedy. This is my problem. This is the problem I’ve brought up in every single other thread and discussion on the new episodes. I want Red Dwarf to make me laugh. Series I-VI made me laugh. Some of series VII made me laugh. None of series VIII made me laugh. So I want new Red Dwarf to make me laugh. I really don’t know how many other ways I can say this before people start to understand that I’m not a ‘hater’, I’m not knocking the visual look of the new shows (which I think is smashing) and I’m not against the show evolving. I just don’t want a Red Dwarf drama. I want the quirky sci fi COMEDY, please.

    As for your comments about the books mate – I adore the books, each one of them. But to me they’re seperate from the show. They’re a different medium and as such can include a different style. The show turning into the style of the books though is not something I ever felt was a good idea. And based on BTE so far, I stand by that opinion.

    I’m sure BSG is a good show (never watched the new one) but it’s a sci fi drama and Red Dwarf is a sci fi comedy. All I’m saying mate is that it baffles me why so many fans want the show to become sci fi drama when that’s not what the show was ever meant to be. In my naivety, I’d have thought the hardcore Red Dwarf fan would want the show to remain a comedy as that’s the show they’ve always known and loved.

    > I don?t care what form Red Dwarf is in so long as it returns.

    This is the attitude I don’t get. Red Dwarf as pure drama seems to be an idea so many fans are perfectly happy with. Has everyone forgotten WHY Red Dwarf was so great? Why it’s so special to us all? Because it took all the best elements of sci fi and then created original and hillarious comedy out of them, whilst leaving breathing room for a bit of drama along the way. Series IV, V and VI best demonstrate this, even though the early series have examples also. VII was too much drama and subsequently didn’t work. VIII went back to pure comedy but had no decent storylines and no decent jokes. So wouldn’t going back to the spirit of IV, V and VI be the best future for Dwarf?

    I want them to give up on the movie idea and do a new series of 6 half an hour sci-fi comedy episodes. Because that’s how Red Dwarf works best. But I seem to be in the minority these days. Everyone else seems to want Red Dwarf to become the new Battlestar Galactica or something.

I think it’s a fantastic somng and I think Albini’s production is sparse whilst at the same time giving the guitars room to breathe. Nothing like the muddy production of Know Your Enemy era. But yeah, the chorus does sound like ‘Temptation’ at first :D But after 40 listens, it doesn’t and the track just comes alive. A real grower and a damn good starting track for an album methinks.

    Going to buy my ticket on Friday to see them in June at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall. It’ll be the 4th time I’ve seen them at that venue, so it’s fast become my spiritual home for Manics gigs! :D

    I have sir, and in a bizarre twist of fate it is almost identical to a cover I made back in January after we heard Jenny Saville would be contributing an original painting for the cover. Follow the link below to see:

    It’s a Manics forum called Forever Delayed and in the thread discussing the new album I posted my idea for an album cover using a Jenny Saville painting. Everyone seemed to really like it. So imagine my shock when the ACTUAL artwork was revealed! :P

    If you grew up playing Nintendo games, buy New Super Mario Brothers. Quality retro style gaming updated to look smashing.

    When Danny said “What would you think if I said I don?t trust white guys?” I don’t think he was saying that he’s racist against white people.

    Cheers John. I’d totally forgotten about that ‘documentary’. After reading the full G&T article, I have to agree it was a rather pointless exercise. Mac’s comments about mental health issues were interesting, but as someone who suffers with mental health problems and has practically never been treated any differently from anyone else, I found them to be out of place. But that may be because I don’t run about shouting ‘Dave Lister!’

    Why would I need to give something I love a second chance if it got me on its first chance.

    You wouldn’t. But I’m talking about revisiting episodes that did NOT get me on their first chance. Hence the thread…

    Wouldn’t just be series 8, it would be series 7 too. But your vote counts, so that’s 1 to nothing against me doing this.

    Lines aside, I think we can all agree that Bobby Llew made a huge mistake with the introduction of Whiney Kryten in series VII. Every line he does in that voice is just appalling.

    It’s going to end up being the CGI version from the last series. The original model, as we all know, was blown up for the episode ‘Demons & Angels’ in series V. Unless some amazing skill is in use down at the models department for the new shows, I doubt very much that we’ll get a fully re-built, restored version of the REAL Red Dwarf.

    In a shallow way, that in itself will be a blight on these new episodes. Having the original ship would go a long way to sealing the deal for fans like me who want these specials to be better than the series which preceeded them. But I guess we’ll have to grit our teeth and put up with it.

    The bleakness and pain on that record mostly just goes to make me think of a talented lyricist, creative and thinker and the horrific mental state he was in. I don?t mean that as a criticism of anyone who respects that record. It?s just a personal reaction too it.

    Sadly, you’re not wrong mate.

    lol just messing. So, for someone who is such a massive Manics fan, why are they only in at 10, 71 and 97 on your list?

    Because the list was not written in order of preference.

    There are no drum machines on GT. Trust me on this one my friend. It’s all real drums. It’s just that Sean is playing in a room with appalling acoustics, so they chucked a load of reverb on the drum track and we end up with what’s there. Still some amazing moments on GT and I always get a tingle down my spine whenever I listen to the very last moment on the album – ‘There’s nothing I wanna see, there’s nowhere I wanna go.’ I don’t know if it’s the way James sings it, the line itself or the beautifully held harmonic from the guitar in the background, but something about that moment brings all sorts of emotions out in me.

    I can?t really think of any aside beyond ?What?s an Iguana??.

    Jeez…I always find that line hillarious. Just love it as an example of Lister’s utter ignorance. And Craig delivers it beautifully. Guess I’m out of touch with what’s funny in Red Dwarf. Anything from series VIII and lots from series VII would’ve been my vote for worst lines.

    monkey – Sean plays ALL the drums and rhythm instruments on GT. James plays all the guitar. Nicky plays most of the bass, though James did some. Richey doesn’t play a fucking note hehehe he just looked the shit with a guitar. Sexy man that he was :D

    Sign up to the official website mailing list dude – Nicky emails us all every so often with updates. There’s polaroids on the site now of the band in the studio with Albini. That’s right – the new album is produced by Steve Albini! If that doesn’t get you excited then I don’t know what will :D

    After ‘Know Your Enemy’ and ‘Lifeblood’, I never thought I’d look forward to a new Manics album again. Now, after ‘Send Away The Tigers’, I’m excited as hell to hear what they’ve got for us. Chances are the b-sides will be better than one or two of the album tracks though – cos that’s always the case with the Manics!! :P
