First time posting here, mainly because i'm hoping someone who worked on this show will read. First let me introduce myself. Im 33, grew up with red dwarf, have all the dvd's watched every episode literally hundreds of times (including season 8... but the less said about that the better) I was pesimistic about this season. I was expecting bad - i got worse! To me it feels like a "comic relief" special. Absolute dog turd of a show. Now comedy, poor acting, terrible directing, and an awfully bad script. Now to be honest i wasnt expecting much from the script - the shows writing has been poor since Rob Grant left. But - this level of awfulness? Come on. Give us some credit mr naylor.. You wrote this on the back of a beer mat while drunk didnt you? I hope this is the end of red dwarf, in this state - i certainly do not want to see it come back any more. Bring Rob Grant back and i might be interested - but as far as i'm concerned with mr naylor writing - this show is dead to me. I dont even think i'll bother watching tonights episode. I just realised it just started - but i wont turn over. I wont watch my favorite show being raped like this. Mr Naylor - i hope you're proud of yourself. I'm just amazed the cast didnt walk of set half way through making this stuff - refusing to work on such dung. Its no wonder the acting is so bad with such awfulness to work with... I wish i could "unsee" these two episodes.. Red dwarf shouldve RIP at the end of season 6. Anything since then - i'll just forget ever happened. Can I also say: After watching these turds - Thank GAWD you never got to make the movie!!!!
