    I'm not too impressed with it, unfortunately. It just seems a bit...off...to me.

    Almost as if we're watching an unfinished version. It also feels like a bad choice of clip to be given out - surely the first 5 minutes of the show would probably have been a much better choice, for example.

    I can't stop playing that clip. It gets better with each new viewing.

    What? I'm still intently looking forward to the shows. I think the clip is pretty good, just not brilliant - that's all.

    The only part which made me laugh was "There's something coming towards you that's bigger than God". (lol) Apart from that it made me smile, i'm not sure i'll see.

    I have to admit, that line was classic dwarf.

    The 'testicle' part was great too. Classic cat.

    I just love the fact I have a 1GB USB stick with the Red Dwarf logo on it!
    We were hoping it would be like that.
    I was saying all afternoon I didn't want to watch it but got home and put it straight on.
    It looks great and I can;t wait to see those episodes.
    There's the 5 min preview, a desktop, a few pics, ringtones and that mobile episode thingy.
    I love it and will treasure it forever.
    I love my pic with the cast and need to incorporate it in my sig somehow.
    My pics are here ... http://www.reddwarf.co.uk/forum/messages.cfm?threadid=7C4191D3-91C8-6460-0FFEB691BAE73884&page=4

    The mem stick clip seems to be missing any kind of background sounds and the little audio bits and pieces which is making the whole thing sound dead.

    If you watch the BBC clip they are all there, the pings in the bathosphere, the computery blips and it all comes together. Without that layer of sound the missing laugh track screams out but I'm guessing that with it the laugh track won't be missed much.

    Roll on friday

    In afterthought on Chris we still dont know which version of Rimmer he is playing, Kryten's entrance of singing holiday and dancing did seem abit OTT and out of character...

    I see, so because I cannot remember every single moment from the shows history you are not convinced I'll like it!!! How odd!!
    The main issue was, that scene was not funny, nothing to do with my Red Dwarf 'knowlage'.
    Maybe bringing it back is a bad idea? We all want it, god knows we all hope it can recapture the glory days (basically anything prior to series 7/8) but can it? Especially without Rob Grant back writing it!!
    I fear this will be like the long awaited return of Only Fools & Horses, in other words total arse.

    I'm not really gonna bother with you, not because i'm being nasty or i hate you, it's because i know i'm going to be totally biased so i don't wanna be an idiot and be a bad sport.

    i basically, don't wanna be an idiot and insult you for your negativity, because i'm going to be biased because i want the show to be good and everyone to like it.

    Actually I don't want the opening spoiled for me, I'm glad I have to wait til the show airs to find out how it begins, maybe that's just me. :-D

    My thoughts on the clip...

    The first thing to say that it is obviously impossible to judge the quality of the specials from this. When seen in context these scenes might seem completely different.

    Judging it on its own merits though, I felt it was disappointing. Not terrible certainly but I would say that everything (jokes, characterization, direction, performances, editing etc.) was slightly off. Several times I cringed, particularly at Cat and Kryten, and there were some lame jokes in there.

    We will see how it looks at the weekend though...
