Yeh, as in series I-VI funny?
Cannot wait. Just cannot wait any longer! Since the new eps were announced I've stayed quite calm, but now it's becoming more of a struggle.
Must... control... bladder...
Oh yes, it's funny. But it's also much, much more.
So much more, eh? I'm guessing it's also pretty dramatic too, then! But really, when you say funny - you do mean early Dwarf funny, yeah? Not 7/8 funny, yeah? Put my poor heart at ease Andrew.
I have no idea what you want me to say, since humour is a matter of taste. Personally,if you didn't think Cassadnra was funny I'd say you were dead from the neck up. Since some people think Series I wasn't funny, and some say VII wasn't, all I can say is: I found it funny. Just as I found Gunmen, Quarantine and Epideme funny.
Well I think what people want to know (and you no doubt don't want to reveal!) is that each series had a unique style of presenting comedy, for example, I-II based around strong dialogue comedy, III-IV clever ensemble scenes and some physical comedy, V-VI being heavy story, spoof and of course (in VI) running gags, and VII-VIII being a bit wacky with use of incidental music etc.
It's hard to describe each series' dynamic, but I think you'll agree they each have their own. I suppose it'd be nice to know which if any this is aiming for, if not a blend or something totally new.
As long as it feels like Red Dwarf looks like Red Dwarf and makes me feel all warm inside when i watch it i'll be happy.From pictures i've seen it looks class.
Andrew your one of the lucky few............
Roll on the 10th April
I think science fiction shows are hard to get in a full story in a half-hour time slot, especially with adverts making it 22-26 minutes long. The fact that its a 3-parter would suggest to me that if this does extend into a full-on series, I reckon it'd be better for Dave to make it so its an hour's slot of television, or 42 minutes without adverts, rather than 30 minute slot with 24 minutes without adverts.
I couldn't agree more. We all know that Doug can't keep to half hour scripts (see: any documentary on the DVD's. Especially S.8 )and plus it gives us more depth in the storylines, more allowences for storytelling etc.
Personally I'd be happy with 24 SECONDS of red dwarf, as long at its new
Looking all the more forward just reading all the stuff here.
To be honest, I do find it odd that on the Series VIII documentries, everybody agreed unanimously that it was a mistake to show Back in The Red as a three-parter, and that it should have been an hour special, so far as to even stich all three together into a mega-long episode on the DVD.
Yet now it's back to doing a three parter?
I for one didn't have a problem with a three parter, and I suppose showing it over 3 days rather than 3 weeks solves most of the issues, but it's still a little odd to me.
Andrew, I am beyond jealous that you've had a sneak peak at the 3rd episode! I'd like to grill you but I'll refrain...
Andddddd to the last poster.... it's Red Dwarf, it's GOING to be funny! "Do we believe?!"
P.S Who's on twitter? Don't want to spam this board too much about our Red Dwarf night in the Aigburth Arms in Liverpool! But I'm looking to reach as many Dwarf fans as possible. Please follow me on www.twitter.com/AigburthArmsdo
The suspense is killing me! Can't believe I'm going to be in Rome when they air! Do they have DAVE in Italy? Doubt it... sob!
Time to buy a Slingbox!
It's going to be 23 minutes per Episode more than we've had in the last 10 years!
I'm just pleased that it's actually going be on television again. That is quite enough for me.
Andrew, a very heart warming story. Got me all flustered just reading it!
Show off :P
I can expect (maybe) that with syndication cuts reinstated for the episode on the DVD, it may be as long as all the other Dwarf eps.
...I Hate You Ellard
Can i have your job yet?
Does this still concern you @Cloud ?
It does. I have spent the past 8 years without answers!
