Ha Ha, I think this is all a very clever bit of writing! leaves people wondering, disscussing and pondering whats going on. during the bit with lister talking to the kids, i got it. Will there be an appearance by chloe? Norman? Doug or even rob???!!! Will there be a series 9? ha. It's kinda hinting that the the plot holes would be cleared up in a unseen series 9 or 10? Yes, i felt strange watching my RD, that i have been watching since feb 1988, parody itself. But i think, or hope, what I would like to see happen! I hope i will not be dissappointed. As to all of you who are slating this, I think it's quite brave and original. shame about the missing laughter track. think about tho, the cast were interveiwed and said, they loved making this (barrie), the script was great (charles), and that they would like to make more (jules). Eh?
