Okay bear with me before you begin criticising me, I know you shouldn't fix it if it ain't broke! Since 1989 Red Dwarf has carried its iconic upbeat electric guitar theme for the opening titles, the format of the opening titles and how the sound complements the feel of the show is iconic in the show's legacy; but watching the more recent empisodes and comparing them to a number of contemporary shows, don't you think it's time for a change? I just think that a simple montage of clips from the series accompanied by music which is clearly fished out from the eighties makes the newer series feel incredibly dated when it doesn't need to, now I very much understand the decision to stay true to the original feel and format of the classic series for series X, what with having an audience and having standalone and mostly talkie shows, I do think that every show should be able to update itself whiel still maintaining its core elements that allows it to retain that sense of nostalgia. I think Back to Earth was an (arguably failed) attempt at adapting the show to suit a modern audience, updating it for the 21st century if you will, while series X was undeniably a throwback to the classic series, and while most of you know I was very happy with the way it turned out, I did get the impression that they were trying too hard to bring back the flare of the show without attempting much to do anything new. Thematically I think Red Dwarf can and should change, I'm not saying get rid of the audience, or make the episodes faster paced and more action oriented, hell no! I just think the show shouldn't be afraid to expand its horizons and do a little more to both be a cult hit and nostalgic rush and an actual fabric of today's market. If Doctor Who had remained the same all these years, we would be having 4, 5, 6 or even 10 part stories which would be incredibly slow paced, one good thing about the change is that all of the core elements and iconic nuances have remained that same, the Tardis noise, and of course the theme tune; which has repeatedly been updated to tonally complement new ideas and to showcase new technology and directions to take the show in, the Doctor Who title sequences have always changed but its still been a very faithful variation on what was already established, merely updated to suite the modern standards. So I ask you people here today, after 24 years, does Red Dwarf need a new theme tune?
