The special on Dave was terrible

Back To Earth.

Was horrendous. Thats why im sceptical about this.

I didn't think it was very funny, but I appreciated the nods to Blade Runner. Otherwise, it mostly felt incredibly cheap, like an episode of Only Fools and Horses instead of Red Dwarf.

Having said that, as much as I used to like this show in the old days, it hasn't stood the test of time all that well, in terms of the humour.

they needed to keep the canned laughter wasnt really the same without it. also it was just shit.

Series 1 - 4 is all you need.

went downhill big time and the special was embarrassingly bad, I've no doubt this will be shite

0 |

I don't know how people can still like Red Dwarf, I liked it as a kid but seeing it now it's painfully unfunny.

Gonna be terrible

You can all smeg off!

I never really thought Red Dwarf was that good. If I were American, I'd describe it as "lame".

0 |

I believe there was also an American version. Never went near it!

I enjoyed it when i was a kid....I dunno if id like it as much if i watch it again tho

Series 8 was quality, no joke. I love red dwarf and I'm optimistic for the new one. Series 7 was a fucking disgrace

Show me the funniest bit in Red Dwarf.

"...and I will give you the Universe," exclaimed Murray, over-egging the pudding.

The benefit of the doubt is about the best going here.

ryan.dtoday @ 12:36 p.m. I never really thought Red Dwarf was that good. If I were American, I'd describe it as "lame".

They had a pilot just was awful!! Although Robert Llweylan was in it

Some of the writing is terrible and some of the jokes aren't funny but overall it's good, better than friends anyway, American sitcoms for the most part are shite, especially friends. Red dwarf is top 3 for me along with Alan partridge and the office.

Red Dwarf is fun not for the great humour, more about the way it actually brought real sci-fi ideas to a mainstream audience. Futurama is kind of the same in that it doesn't succeed because it's funnier than most other animated shows (most of the time its not) but because it has entertaining stories, interesting concepts, memorable characters and the occasional nerdy joke.

8/10

Loved it. 10 times better than that Back to Earth shite. So old lookin now. Hope the keep it up for the rest of the series.

Yep, I think if you liked Red Dwarf in the past (and not the last two series or the Back to Earth specials) last nights episode can stand up there with the oldies. Of course, if you hated it in the past, you're never going to like this now.

I actually LOL'd once or twice, so that's a good start.

I loved the early series and watched it religiously every week. Slightly enjoyed last night, lost interest few times but then a funny moment dragged me back in. Agree it stands up more so than the final episodes compared to the early ones. Will continue to watch but not sure if I find the same things as funny as I did when I was a kid

The Stir-Master was a good dig at shopping channels lol Rimmer is not what he used to be. Doesnt seem to be the same self involved weasel he used to be but its early days.

0 |

I thought the Lister bit was the weakest part and occasionally they overplayed a few jokes.

0 |

thought it was ok

will probably watch next one

0 |

Was good. Pleased. Some funny bits alright. What have they done to runners hair? It looks like the conch

Watching now. Meh. Used to love it.

0 |

This is not good at all.

0 |

Its exactly how it used to be. I give it a TF rating of 8.2/10.

I'm a complete Red Dwarf fanboy as well. Enjoyed the new one, it's nice that it's more similar to the older ones.

I absolutely love Red Dwarf. This was not funny at all.
