    Are you at all surprised? The point of not telling you exactly when it would air is to drag as many people to watch as many of the episodes as possible.

    The moment I saw the "between 1-5" airing time, I assumed it'd be during the final ad break of the marathon.

    To be fair, everyone on here and everyone on twitter watching at the same time has been fun.

    The red dwarf twitter says it will be up online soon. It looks amazing. There is laughs in it and something I was very excited about I don't want to spoil.

    My thoughts on the trailer:

    • Some of those external shots are incredible. Better than I ever imagined for Red Dwarf.
    • I like the look of those two scary robots.
    • This season does appear to be pretty dark in tone judging by this. I hope it turns out that way and manages to reproduce the atmosphere of season 5.
    • I see we've got a bunkroom scene. We only saw a few seconds of it, but judging by what we saw I fear it will only serve to remind us of how brilliant the ones in the early seasons were - sadly, something about the delivery from Chris and Craig was a bit off again. Plus, Lister's line was weak.
    • Anyone else notice Rimmer's battleplan timetable from The Beginning behind him while he's lying on his bed?

    Looks FAN-SMEGGING-TASTIC!!! :-D From what we have to go on, this looks set not only to be the best looking series so far, but also one of the funniest! And until now I thought you couldn't have it both ways :lol:

    Agreed. They're both hamming it up. Watch virtually any exchange from series 1 to 5, and you feel that Chris and Craig actually believe what they're saying, and actually care about the characters. From series 6 onwards, they're pantomiming, and I'm afraid that's what they're doing in that clip.

    To be fair, I kinda expect a bit of hamming since it what Doug seem to actively go for.....but even then I can handle it just fine if it never sinks down to being as bad as series 8 was.....or Trojan for that matter. However if the jokes and writing hold up I still think there could be a quality season here, or at least that's what I'm hoping for.
