    I Sky+'d Series I, II, III and four episodes of IV (which weren't even showing on the Friday nights, they were at a weird day/time, lucky I found them on the Search function)
    And now it's stopped showing...?

    Whilst I'm disgruntled, I noticed that the III and IV had audio/visual delays, to the point where it was impossible and pointless to watch.
    Cat comes in, his mouth moves, he leaves.
    As they all exit, you hear the line: "Hey guys - I think they're playing our tune, the Awooga Waltz. Anyone care to join me in a quickstep?"

    C'mon, Dave, sort it out...grrrr!

    I'm imagining she does, considering she referenced Dave in the OP. Are you under the impression she taped the show back in the late 80's and early 90's when it originally aired on BBC TWO? I wasn't aware they had Sky+ back then!

    I have a VHS recording of Series V from its original airing (5 of those episodes aired before I was born!) and a recording of the 1994 repeat season of Series IV which shown the episodes out of order. Sadly my VHS recordings of Series VI, VII (missing 'Blue') and VIII are all gone now :-(

    Watched the Series V VHS a few months back. Was actually really surprised with the quality. Plus of course it is the only way to watch the broadcast version of 'Terrorform'.

    I believe the problem is that I don't know what "sky+" means. Is that some sort of recording?

    Sky = UK satellite provider of digital channels (including Dave)
    Sky+ = TiVo-esque recording service for Sky users

    Hehehehe! :lol:

    So, yeah, no-one's any the wiser as to where the series have gone? Have Dave chickened out? I wonder if they'll restart a little later down the line to match up the end of Series VIII/BTE with Series X.

    If they show series VIII ill eat my hat! See my rant on other thread but I just dont understand why that series (and VII) isnt shown more often. Its part of Red Dwarfs history and should be shown the same amount of times as the other series.
