    George MacIntyre's picture to the far left of Kochanski's?

    Nice nod to the first episode.

    I had to pause it to actually catch it.

    Enjoyed this overall, glad I only have to wait until tomorrow!

    It wasn't George, it was Mel Bibby.

    Nono, George was next to Mel Bibby.

    You need to watch it in 16:9 to see it, perhaps even with overscan off. I watch through HDMI with 1:1 pixel mapping and it was barely on my screen, so.

    Ah OK. Our TV isn't set to that res so there's a chance it was just cut-off, but it wouldn't surprise me if 75% of the viewers didn#t know who Mel Bibby was so a lot of people are probably scratching their heads trying to figure out who that guy was in the other picture!

    Was a very nice touch :-)

    Also, I really laughed at Listers line in that scene "... i pray to god there's some car chases in this one..".

    Did anyone spot the multitude of Blade Runner references? In the very first shot of the titles there's a building
    that looks exactly like the Tyrell corp building, then theres a shot of the dwarfers crashing through a large pane
    of glass in slow motion, plus apparently people were saying something about a simulant being in the last ep?

    Yeah I noticed that - should be very interesting.

    I've heard that people have seen a simulant in a set pic or something. Anyone got a link?

    Did anyone else notice that in the preview clip Kryten says "Oh my God!" but on the actual broadcast it was dubbed over with "Oh my gosh!" I wonder why it was dubbed over?

    Anyone got a screen capture of this? I'm afraid it was beyond the boundaries of my TV picture.

    I'm thinking it was either down to it not really fitting in with the rest of Kryten's character or to make sure they can resell the specials to another country. It's probable that people might have been offended by Kryten saying "Oh my God", so they edited it.

    Why though, he has said it before... so have other characters throughout the shows 8 series, so why take issue now?

    No idea. I haven't seen many of the old episodes on Dave since I tend to watch them on my DVDs but maybe it comes down to Dave not liking it...or just because it's Easter? :?:lol:

    Well, now is ten years later for one. Also, don't forget when they remastered the earlier series they went so far as to change some lines to make it more sellable outside of the UK.

    Agh I just watched it back and can still only see two photos, Mel and Kochanski. Annoying!
