    Hey guys, I'm really looking forward to Thursday and I want to honour the occasion by posting a video review of each Red Dwarf X episode as it airs. On Thursday me and my friend will be having curry and lager while we watch the first episode 'Trojan', by the weekend my review of the episode will be up on youtube.

    I will be posting the video on my channel 'CTPixelReviews', the title will be 'RedLemon Reviews: Red Dwarf X - Episode 1 (Trojan)'.

    The review will be done in an improvised style where I will express my preconceptions and expectations for the episode and then after watching it I will give my thoughts in a raw but still well articulated and structured way. Warning: It may contain spoilers!

    Please understand that I am new to critques and I want anyone with experience to make suggestions for my approach.

    Great idea! My only advice is although you want it to be an off the cuff review, make some notes about the points you want to hit and have it where you can have a look, that way you won't be going "Erm..." if you forget what you wanted to say. some people are great and speaking freely though, but its always useful to have some notes.

    Most reviewers of movies & tv shows make the same mistake, they spend to much time simply retelling the plot! You can see this even in supposedly professional journalists work.

    I will try to keep my descriptions of the plot to a minimum, as part of the preconceptions segment I will be reading out the official uktv synopsis. From then on I will only mention plot points when they have something to do with the quality of the episode, I will try not to repeat myself.

    Not bad. Just couldn't keep up with you moving about all over the place! :lol:

    Wish I could have seen a close up of the curry!

    The curry was very hot but surprisingly much more edible than I expected. As you know the format of the video is largely experimental and the moving around was me trying to copy the formula that a lot of people use on youtube, albiet with questionable success, it was also me trying to break down parts of the script to avoid messing up and having to start over. Thanks:-)

    Better than first review.
    The more relaxed informal style is preferable to the heavily scripted format.

    Hi Red Lemon. I enjoyed your reviews so far, and made some comments under bazalmighty. I fear I might sound a little anal-retentive but just wanting to give you my honest opinions. Keep it up :-)

    Thank you for all the comments and I am grateful for your constructive criticism. I'm thinking of using a script for the last two reviews depending on how much of an opinion I form on them.
