What a waste of time, so desperate and forced, old jokes forced into new shells, no explanation for anything at all, just here it is...deal....not the old RD way (remember the blowing up camcorder of the time travellers explanation) so in that vein, 2 hardlight drive holograms without a holly to explain? Come on at least it would have been slightly funny if it was another Queeg style joke of old days but no, shes a new crew member...so why not someone who mattered like bringing kochanski back for lister...afterall it's their purpose to keep him happy and alive, she did a much better job. Last time we saw rimmer, he was kicking death in the balls and jumping through a dimensional gate, where we were lead to believe reality was backward. All we get as an explanation is "9 YEARS LATER" whoop de do, someone decide we just wouldn't care? This should not be the way red dwarf is remembered, I would have much prefered to think them all dead going through the gate than have them come back as washed up old actors who bring their coronation street personalities into RD (Yes Craig I mean you!) This all in all was a painful half hour and I am only going to watch the next few because it can't get much worse....can it? Ps. Any money says at the end of the 3 it goes to black with "The End...?" just to keep it open a few more years....Rimmer in a zimmer-frame as red dwarf returns 36 years after it first aired!
