Every time I look for any up to date news about the new shows, the main emphasis is on the special effects. Does it really need it? Red Dwarf was at its best when it had the same budget as button moon; its the comedy that makes the show. They tried all the cgi in series 7 and it looked rubbish. I would be happy with the season 1 and 2 set as long as the script is well written and it feels like dwarf. From the end of season 5, every season got a little less dwarf like. Is this one a step to far? No holly? no live audience? I love the background laughter on sitcoms. I hope it isn't another Star Wars! The original triolay was fantastic, look what they did with the prequels! All that money spent on effects and CGI but it wasn't star wars! Everyone had such high hopes! Sorry to sound so negotive, I am looking forward to the shows but am worried that even after all the bad feedback about series 7 and 8, it still wont be 'proper dwarf' again!
