Yes, how little he really knows of bonehead...
i love that whole pub scene as well. especialy the legendary 'OMM SONG'
and the way Rimmer is singing it as they leave is just clasic
Have to agree with joe_mills on Kill Crazy. Thought he was hilarious on the initial run of VIII, and he still cracks me up when I watch the DVD's now. He may be a bit over the top but that's what makes me laugh about him.
Ditto, it seems rushed and not at all thoroughly thought through - strange really as many of the other shows in Red Dwarf VIII seem laboured and lacklustre - which is probably why I didn't like that particular series as it lacked balance...
The B-Movie was designed to be crap so it would fit in with the whole prison theme. I thought it was funny because it was so bad!
As for a favorite minor character, gotta be Bob and Madge. Clearly the stars of Series 8.
I liked the B-Movie, it reminded me a lot of Glam Metal Detectives* with its B-Movie spoofs. The presence of Mark Caven helped that connection though! (Google Time for a lot of people I think!)
* Starring, amongst others, Mac MacDonald!
Has nobody mentioned Spare Head 3 yet? He deserves a series of his own. Perhaps he could take over Jonathan Ross' chat show; he would be about a hundred more times entertaining than the current host.
Talkie Toaster, who in the TV series' has a rather minor (and very annoying) role but, in the book "Better Than Life" has a much larger part to play in the story, providing both comic relief and solutions to problems that arise for the crew.
It has to be Dobbin and Gary from Smeg and the Heads!
Well... just because its Bill Steer and Jeff Walker from Carcass haha :P
I dont care if they dont count.... Mr Flibble, followed by Archie and then the scutters... :P
KATERINA KATERINA KATERINA KATERINA KATERINA KATERINA KATERINA KATERINA KATERINA KATERINA KATERINA !!!!!
While I do think that Cassandra is one of the best episodes of the series (tied with BITR part one) I also think that what surrounds it makes it seem better than what it is and that in a stronger series from the pre VII it wouldn't have seemed so impressive.
Fair enough. It think the story itself is pretty cracking though and up there with the best of Dwarf.
Cassandra certainly has more of a feel of the earlier series about it than the other series VIII episodes do, but it's never impressed me. I also can't stand that silly 'chain reaction' ending. They did a similar thing years before in an episode of The Brittas Empire, a programme in which this kind of joke works much better.
Maybe I'll give it another go sometime and see if my opinion has changed.
Can't believe nobody's mentioned Elvis in Meltdown. I loved Clayton Marks's performance and his singing of the closing theme was the icing on the cake!
'Reach for the sky, boys! Thank you very much...' LOL!
I've had a quick flick through, and it seems no-one has mentioned Bongo (or any of the other Alter-egos from Dimension Jump)
I love Bongo's obsession (not sure thats quite the right word) with Ace
BONGO: If you're interested, I'll be in my quarters at lunchtime, covered in torama salada.
ACE: I didn't know your bread was buttered that side, Bongo.
BONGO: It isn't. I've been happily married for 35 years. It's just, a chap like you can turn a guy's head.
ACE: I'm sorry, Bongo. Lunch is...on Mellie.
BONGO: Would it make any difference if it was...hummus?
ACE: I'm sorry, Bongo. I'm strictly "butter-side-up."
BONGO: Understood. What a guy!
"anybody got a burger, haven't eaten in 5 minutes... thank you very much '
He was probably the best thing in a below average episode.
Incidentally, Clayton Mark reappears as Elvis in Danny's Tongue Tied video.
