The first episode of XI that was teased to us was Twentica wasn't it? It ended up being the series opener... so do we think that this "everyone is Kryten" episode is going to be the series opener for XII?
I'm kinda hoping not, I don't want them to make the Twentica mistake and put out the dressy blow-the-budget episode out first and have that be the first we see of XII.
We know the finale is a proper finale-type episode, so I don't think they're going to going to open on the big one this time.
Well, the other half of the Twentica mistake is throwing out the episode which feels like they tried too hard and used a good concept the wrong way. I wouldn't want it to be the first episode if it turned out that way either.
I think the thing with Red Dwarf is that often the first episode got the highest audience and then it drops for the next bunch of episodes so you need to impress enough to keep them coming back.
That's basically the case with any and all TV shows.
I'm hopeful for this episode.
Its probably a 5 minute subplot with 10 other subplots in that one episode.
Going by series XI anyway.
I hope that the Kryten transformation has a strong in-universe explanation and that the crew don't simply have a rummage through Kochanski's Magic box o' props (including gelf outfits and mirror universe machines)!
It is a very good explanation, don't worry about that. Could even be seen as a callback to a previous episode (from several series back), though I don't think it referenced it directly.
I think i can guess which episode its called back too.
Although if its the episode i am thinking about then it sounds like an invert.
From what I understand, this series might not be so full of references, so I doubt it.
I was thinking that one too, though I suppose it could also hark back to the unreality bubble idea. I don't really mind callbacks if they're quite subtle, as this one sounds to be. Pretty sure the set reports mentioned several (justifiable) callbacks within this series?
What a brilliant, attention-grabbing picture though! Can't wait to see this episode - surely it will be the series opener after all the publicity?
Aslong as its not just a sequel or another version of an old idea then i won't mind.
So far we had the despair squid and joy squid.
And then they did the Karma drive which works on the same level as the justice field.
It wouldn't be a good sign of originality or new ideas if they are just new takes on old ideas.
The Nonplussed Squid is an ok idea I spose.
Not a good day for Cat.
@Kittypaws, do you know something about that?
OH MY GODDDDDDDDD!!!!
Navigation Officer? Series 1 Style H and Uniform? I am too excited now!!!!!!!!
Yeah I just seen that on Facebook. It got me pretty hype as well!
