Apparently there's a new series being made after the success of last year's specials. Presumably it'll be on Dave.
I agree, I think they missed the "window of opportunity" and left it too late (and no Grant/Naylor collaboration either). They failed to recapture the old magic IMO (not a total shock though, it has been a long time since they all worked together).theyithian said:

It's available for four days.gncxx said:It's OK, it's repeated tonight. I know, repeats on Dave, who'd have thought it?
Well, I liked it!Zoffre said:Well, that episode was a load of old guff as well (IMHO!) - again, totally lacking in structure! And comedy foreign accents...? Really...?
Thought the taped message was very reminiscent of the Doctor Who story Blink, too. Again, I don't think it's classic, but it does make me laugh a few times and that's good enough for me.rynner2 said:And a few tips of the hat to earlier SF stories - computer ejecting human into space (2001), and the dive into the sun (Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy). Not to mention Lister being his own father (Red Dwarf) - hence the title, Fathers and Suns. 8)
Yes, I think so too. Sometimes it's better to leave something when it's at its peak than drag it out. I think the actors are good sports to come back to it (well, there is the financial element I imagine...) but part of me thinks that they'd be better off ploughing a new furrow in other projects that aren't inextricably linked to their younger selves.onetwothree said:I watched this through my fingers and really wasn't that impressed, I have to say. I adored the first few series and still maintain that the first Red Dwarf book is one of the funniest things I've ever read, but really, I think it would have been much better left back there *waves hand vaguely* as a classic series rather than trying to keep going.
I only saw the Jesus episode so far, but I thought they were giving forteana, or at least fringe theories, quite a lot of screen-time on that.Pietro_Mercurios said:
Definitely broached the subject of gnostic heresy on that episode.James_H2 said:...
