OK I've tried to resist posting about BTE due to reading all these picky smegheads spamming the forum with their opinions on the whole thing without watching the whole thing. E.g. Also people who are complaining about the continuity blablablablabalbala. E.g. I believe that I needed to express the following points in their own thread so all the 'clever ones' can see them thus shutting up about said irrelevant issue. Being a Dwarfgeek I've thought about this to the best of my abilities which I hope the fans can appreciate. 1. Which Reality Is It Set In: It could be any of infinity realities. Probably one we haven't seen before; the one where they don't lose Red Dwarf. This explains why Red Dwarf is the original design (the nanobots wouldn't have rebuilt it with all the swanky new features) and also why Rimmer's still around - the Rimmer who was with them with the despair squid. Also, we haven't seen what happens in series X. Possibilities are endless and thus no-one need question it. So shush up if you want to complain about it. 2. ...So How Did Kochanski Get On Board Then...: Dimensional tears are probably common in deep space and with the other adventures the crew had that we didn't see (in the reality in the BTE episodes). Also, we haven't seen what happens in series X. Possibilities are endless and thus no-one need question it. So shush up if you want to complain about it. 3. The Squid Being On Starbug: *See 1* 4. Why They're Not In The Mirror Universe: *See 1* 5. How Rimmer Is Dead Again: *See 1* 6. Why Was There No Laughter Track: This one is my opinion. I don't think the laughter track would have worked because of the tone of BTE. I don't think they were intended to be 'classic episodes', just gems in their own right. This is why I'm smegged off at the people whining on about the episodes not being funny because it's a story in itself and should have been judged as a whole rather than how it was handled on the forum (no offence to wanting feedback from the fans, but online communities these days expect things all in one otherwise they just lose interest being the impatient idiots they are). 8. How was the likes of corrie so accurate in their hallucination: This was playing on our existing knowledge of the show. Meaning that we would obviously know how it looks and the reputation of it due to the fact that we are actually not really but have been 'programmed' as it were to think these things. 9. How Did The Kids On The Bus Know About Kochanski When They Were Part Of The Hallucination: The squids produces a 'group hallucination' so it's plausible that Kryten's thoughts somehow 'leaked' into the hallucination. (Any more then feel free to post them HERE and not in the 'feedback' thread. I would have gone through all the threads to try give an explanation for people's queries about the show but most of the forum doesn't actually load right now due to people signing up just to say 'WOZ CRAP LOLZ').
