OMG. Dancing blue midget scene...Really embarrassing. Shame on all concerned. Pathetic!
OMG. The claymation scene...Really embarrassing. Shame on all concerned. Pathetic!
Oh well, Back in the Red pt3 ends with an hilarious male gang rape punchline...shameful...
Yeeeah.....and that's pretty uncharacteristic of Lister to do
Cassandra. The basic idea of a fortune telling computer is ok, if it was slotted into the real Red Dwarf not this sham mockery of the original idea with a stupid secret prison! There are a couple good gags actually even though the supporting cast are all terrible actors!
Krytie TV. Another pathetic episode.
I do think when kill crazy is all 'let's go kill something!!' And knocks himself is really funny.
Pete part 1...
Pete part 2...
Only the Good... Horrendous finale to an horrendous season!
I wasn't aware that you weren't a fan of series 8, sim.
Stop trying to turn another thread into the Harry & Sim show...you know full well I do not like s8...
Sim you should get a T-shirt that says "I survived Red Dwarf VIII"
They're probably sold out!
Fathers & Suns
Well, I've just seen Nanarchy and finally completed my very slow re-watch of RD7. And I've come to the conclusion that RD7 is functional, it's got some half-decent bits in it, but it doesn't do much, if anything, that's great.
Tikka To Ride was the best episode from it by far, in my opinion. After that it falls apart because of Rimmer's departure, but also because of *how* Rimmer departed. Deciding to "be Ace" and leaving, after shenanigans with a knight who emerged from the AR machine (not even regular RD would do something so awful).
Giving her a bit of credit, Kochanski does actually work in a manner, but is no real substitute for Rimmer. She does actually get a few laughs but by this point everyone's so settled into their roles. Also, as a final note about series 7 as a whole, there just aren't that many laughs compared to other series - at least ones that feel natural. I've always quite liked how, when RD is good, it basically is a sci-fi plot but squeezing jokes into it, rather than making big, easily-broadcast jokes.
As for Nanarchy - meh, I could take it or leave it. It's one of the episodes I've watched the least (like most of RD7) and I hadn't seen this in years, as such I should have forgotten it all. Instead, I knew the basic plot and very few of the jokes made me laugh (in fact I can't even remember one). Even my most-watched eps of other series get a laugh, even though I know them mostly line-for-line.
EDIT - I like the plot for Nanarchy, and how they "found" Red Dwarf again. That was pretty good. I still don't think the "cliffhanger" should have been a cliffhanger, and they should have just left RD8 as being back on the 'Dwarf rather than the ship actually being massive and shrinking around them. I just think it was a final joke left on the end of the episode to get a chuckle, like Lister falling down the hole at the end of Justice.
