    Huh, for some reason I thought he’d managed to stay clean for good after rehab. Then again, if you were DJing for a living you’d be surrounded by temptation…hope he’s doing okay health-wise.

    My reaction to the news that the Gold expansion packs will be included with the Tomb Raider remasters:

    Can’t wait for the glen in Willard’s Lair to have a skutter roaming across the screen when you’re about to be attacked by a kilted Scottish bastard.

    Wait til you play TR2, Home Sweet Home has been replaced with a much better ending:

    Ugh, a big problem with the Red Dwarf fandom IMO is that people seem to forget it’s a comedy show and treat it like a serious sci-fi drama, demanding every joke be scientifically accurate. The floppy disc is good clean fun, and I don’t give a shit if that’s not how floppy discs work in real life.

    It’s like, imagine if Futurama fans got angry every time Bender said he’s 40% this or that. “I don’t care if it’s a joke, they need to be consistent about his physical makeup! That would be MUCH funnier!”

    Anyway, to get back on topic I have to bring up the annoying man in the Series III audience who goes “TUHUHUHUHUH”. I swear, he’s in every episode and always overreacts to lines like “This is a scalpel”. They actually removed him from the re-mastered episodes, which is a change I can get behind.

    Since lockdown ended, I’ve made loads of gay friends. I hadn’t really had any for a few years (save for Bent Bob) despite being a homo myself, so for a while I actually felt out of place…

    Ahh I see now. I should really start doing my research before posting in these threads!

    Still, I don’t think I’ll lose any sleep at night over the revelation that Red Dwarf is only 2,980,000 years after Lister’s time rather than 3,000,000

    I’m confused about this “it’s less than 3,000,000 years in the future” thing people keep mentioning – Kryten was created AFTER Lister went into stasis, according to VIII. Why are we acting like Kryten MUST have been created first? Have I missed something?

    It’s a VERSION of 4K…

    So I realised this special was a blindspot in my re-watching of Dwarf in recent years, and decided to finally give it another shot…

    Overall…I liked it! Surprisingly funny and deep, but all the Blade Runner stuff was weak and weird and can bugger off.

    2009 Me: Wow they’re looking a bit old!
    2022 Me: Wow they look so young!

    “Early 21st century? Isn’t that when all the banks went belly-up and money became useless?” Yes, as of 2022 it is still certain, THAT is what will make the history books.

    Although they were right about one thing; DVDs ARE gone now, the only time we buy physical media is when we want big collector’s edition boxes from Kickstarter or Limited Run, with like a retro floppy disc or Nintendo 64 cartridge. Funny how the piss-takey “prediction” turned out more accurate.

    Could they REALLY not film in a tube station for 10 seconds? That green-screening was terrible!

    Could they REALLY not film Big Suze standing by a road for 10 seconds? That green-screening was terrible!

    Those two kids on the bus have likely finished uni now.

    I don’t mind Rimmer killing Big Suze, but the whole scene comes and goes so abruptly.

    To this day I have not seen Blade Runner, and thanks to this special I don’t feel like I need to.

    I remember the Corrie stuff going on much longer than this.

    Why does Rimmer’s typewriter-induced song sound like Freezeezy Peak?

    Still makes me smile that they got Chloë back, it really makes this feel like a bridge between BBC Dwarf and Dave Dwarf. XI and XII are my least favourite Dave offerings because they’re just so devoid of continuity or feels.

    “You’ll never get me” – She’s right, he never did.

    The Kochanski stuff and the final scene are over and done with so quickly. A lot of this special feels faster-paced than I remember. They should have cut back on the Blade Runner stuff, binned Nose World entirely, and added more jokes and dialogue to the other bits. With a limited budget, that should have been a no-brainer.

    I always particularly liked the Series 5 commentaries where Craig was off ill, so the rest of the cast did impressions of him.

    Also, the many comments about the dark lighting turning Danny invisible, until they realised they had the contrast turned down on their TV screen.

    Has anyone played Escape from Monkey Island?

    Escape is the Series VIII of the Monkey Island series. Broad humour, the need to make a crappy joke with every line of dialogue, shoehorned and overdone references to the early years, and of course bad CGI.

    Hattie’s background acting in 4 and 5 is delightful. I love the way she nods along to the other characters’ dialogue and such, although it does make me feel a bit sad for her. At least she got paid for her time, I suppose.

    I’ve never seen anyone talk about the moment in Holoship where you can see her blinking and holding back tears after watching the soppy romantic film. I’m wondering if I’m the only one who’s noticed…

    Alsatian dog after a headswap operation is one that’s always had me puzzled. Is a headswap operation a real thing? Swapping heads with what, another alsatian? Is it something to do with brain surgery, or do they mean decapitating two dogs, swapping the heads, then stitching them back together? Surely the dogs would be dead by then, or is that the joke?

    I really hate that the fans spent all those years going “No more CGI! We want models!”, then as soon as they get models there is a ridiculous amount of nitpicking and complaining, followed by “No more models! WE WANT CGI!!!”

    Most of Series 3 has this really annoying bloke going “TUH-HUH-HUH-HUH-HUH” over it. Most noticeably in Polymorph after “This is a scalpel.” They got rid of him in the Remastered versions.

    But I adore the extended “Oh-hoh-hoh-hoh-HOH!” after the Series 8 cliffhanger gag in The Beginning.

    That split-second effect in Gunmen of the Apocalypse as Kryten plugs himself into the mainframe is absolutely stunning, and it looks impossible for its time.

    I’m also stilled wowed to this day at the shot where Cat high-fives himself.

    The new Starbug looks terrible. The legs are too far apart, it’s the wrong shade of green, the boosters are too big, the kerning on the “STARBUG 1” logo is bad, the cockpit is too round and it looks like a model.

    The Beginning is an amazing episode and one of my favourites. I’m happy we got XI and XII, but I would be totally satisfied if The Beginning were the grand series finale.

    I didn’t like it on my first viewing, but on re-watching it with a friend I found myself quite entertained. It’s not the best Red Dwarf episode, but none of it really offends me and a lot of it is quite funny. Apart from “spit-on-a-wrist”, obviously.

    On the Dwarfcast, Cat’s random outburst was seen as out of character, but I feel like it was perfectly Catlike. Him forgetting he wasn’t allowed to criticise felt very similar to me to the bit in Beyond a Joke where he forgets he’s in GELF costume and starts speaking English.

    I don’t think there’s anything offensive about Ziggy and his mannerisms and attire, nor do I think there was any negative intention there. In fact, speaking as a slightly camp, dreadful artist with horrific fashion sense, I feel like I’d behave the same way if placed in his situation.

    Nice work! I was watching it thinking “This’d be so great if they threw in the smeg up where Robert says the place is a complete shithole” and then it turned out you’d done exactly that. I was in hysterics!

    The deleted scenes work really well in this edit. They’re better than the majority of stuff that made it into the official version. That said, I really miss the jokes about Roy and his finger-wetting machine.

    There’s a guy in Series III who constantly goes “TUH-HUH-HUH-HUH-HUH”. Best example I can think of is after “This is a scalpel.” Drives me up the wall. One of the few improvements of the Remastered versions is that they got rid of him.

    Well the problem with that is it’s redundant, as you’re in the cinema as you watch it, effectively listening to two audiences laughing at once. Of course, while a film has an audience, it doesn’t have comedy and timing based on that audience’s reactions, but if you want that in a movie-like experience, there’s theatre.

    I always thought it’d be cool to see animation done with a studio audience. You could show the cartoon to them with all the animation done aside from lip sync (Maybe mouth flaps or a very rough cut), and all the sound mix aside from voices. Then get the voice actors to perform it live as the cartoon plays, pausing the video whenever there’s a woofer, or they want to improvise or milk the gags. Then slap it on, do the lip sync last, and you’ve got an animated sitcom.
