In the words of the cast themselves "we perform better in front of an audience". Please can someone tell the powers that be to bring back a live audience? Why? Because it removes some of the awful silences. The writing is brilliant (ok Craig needs to lose some weight) but the silences after the jokes are killing it. Its like a high brow comedy piece at the moment with silences following killer jokes. If RD is to survive we have to get rid of the silences, bring back the live laughter. Don't get me wrong I LOVE RD but the bottom line is the silences are really harming the experience. If you took your favourite comedian, had him/her perform a gig in front of 100s of people and they sat in silence are you telling me that would be the same experience as if they roared with laughter? Dont you think he/she would perform better to? With even more energy feeding off the crowd? The cast themselves have said we perform better in front of an audience. ALL the best RD episodes were in front of a live audience. Please can someone tell the powers that be? Heres what Robert Llewellyn (Kryten) has to say: http://www.llewtube.com/wp/?page_id=2 Bring back the live laughs please guys! Am I the only one?
