    It's an excellent episode and if the 12 episodes from 2016-17 were condensed into a single 6 episode series then this would definitely make the cut. (Though of course I am delighted with series 11 and 12 as they are with all 12 shows)

    Tikka to Ride - Xtended and Remastered

    Red Dwarf's post Rob Grant second best episode has added some different, interesting and funny bits to the mix.

    Ouroboros - Xtended, this afternoon.

    Red Dwarf's 3rd weakest episode has only a few brief bits added, but it's okay material and expands it slightly.

    Duct Soup Xtended yesterday afternoon.

    Back in the Red Xtended today.

    Although you can see why the additional scenes were cut they are still fairly interesting to have included in these larger versions. These Xtended versions are good - especially decent in Tikka to Ride's case - but probably really Red Dwarf is at its finest in its usual 30 minutes length IMHO.

    Oh well usually after viewing the Xtended episodes that is my Dwarfathon well and truly over, but because there are the series 3/5 replacement discs to come I will do a re-watch of those 1989 and 1992 runs when they arrive to make sure everything is fine, see them both transferred properly and surely for some pleasure too!

    Just have to be patient a bit longer and watch something else in the meantime which will be fun too...

    The Tikka To Ride Xtended version is great. And Lister being abandoned in space with all those curries makes a much better ending than the one we got in the broadcast version.

    I (mostly*) don't dislike series 8, but prefer the other series, by far. Cassandra, though, stands out as up there with the best of Red Dwarf, in my opinion.

    * As in I mostly enjoy it, but it does drag on occasion. And that Hollister timewand rewind gag , I found really irritating.

    I still can't understand, why they did this and then left the timewand in the office.

    I've tried to like it, but series VIII is just crap.

    Just one of many unanswered questions in Pete. The simple answer is: terrible writing.

    I watched the feature length version yesterday and it seemed even worse than ever.

    I went through every season in order a few years ago and going through season 8 was a depressing experience. You really get a sense of how low the show has sunk when you've recently watched all the fantastic episodes in seasons 1 to 6. I've vowed to skip past season 8 the next time I go through all the episodes

    I always look forward to X - XII, while watching VIII. They're much more better.

    The Tikka to Ride Xtended version is indeed really good. While I don’t detest the broadcast version’s final scene I do feel the Lister finding the curries from another time one is superior. While the other Dwarfers beating up Lister is clearly meant to be “cartoony” ultimately it comes across as too violent and would not really fit in with the earlier Rob Grant co-writes.

    In whatever form though, Tikka to Ride is the second best episode of the post-Rob days.
