[SPOILER ALERT] As much as I loved having the boys back for a new special, I felt that the last episode felt a bit rushed and sloppy in the writing. And, from what I read afterwards about how quickly and cheaply this was done, it doesn't surprise me. Too many plot holes that needed to be plugged up. Examples, and suggestions: 1- Katerina. She was introduced very early on, and had a major role in part one (more so than Kryten, for example). But then, she was quickly killed off in part 2, which made no sense. I had expected a return in part 3 to explain her role. Suggested re-write change: Bring her back in part 3, and have HER play the part of Tyrell, instead. It would have been a better shock, and could have tied up loose ends as to her existence in their delusion. Perhaps she was created by Rimmer's psyche as a sort of self-punishment, like the Tax Revenue gentlemen in "Better than Life" (see more on that, below). 2- Joy Squid was stolen by the Cat at the end of ep5. I know RD is all about inconsistencies, but I still can't swallow this one. It makes no sense at all -- first, there's no way this squid would have lived through S7 (as already mentioned by others), and even if it did, why did the Cat never put 2 and 2 together? He seems oblivious, even after they get out of their delusion and they start talking about "despair ink". I suspect it was a last minute change in the script. Suggested re-write change: The Cat does not bring the Squid back on RD. Make it some other creature that is not "Back to Reality" related, but is actually closer to a "Better than Life" entity -- maybe something that used to be the computer game 3 million years ago, but evolved and took on consciousness, and somehow found its way onto Red Dwarf. That was a common trick Grant/Naylor used to use, and I think it would have worked, here. 3- The boys didn't move at all, while under the influence of the ink. This counters what we saw in "Back to Reality". Suggested re-write change: Same as #2. Making it a "Better than Life" entity would have easily explained the lack of movement. 4- Blade Runner building. Up until that building showed up, I could accept that perhaps the boys were in our reality, and the origami was just some kind of in-joke I could dismiss. But once we saw the building, the illusion was destroyed -- we knew they were not in our reality, anymore. Suggested re-write change. Tone down the Blade Runner references. Lose the building (granted, it was nice eye candy). Use the Tyrell character introduction, which would have been Katerina, as the shocker where we say "hold on a minute -- is this reality or not?". We wouldn't see her face until after they open the door, of course. Overall I did enjoy it and will be buying the DVD to show my support. I'm hoping they get a new series commissioned, a bigger budget, and more time for re-writes (or some additional writers to help out Doug). RD still has so much potential.
