Back to what series 7 should of been certainly better than 7-8 and the abortion that was Back To Earth. Plenty of plot holes but I'm happy to just pretend they were explained in the missing season 9.

I genuinely said the exact same thing. The pitch of the show was that it was set in space but could have been filmed in the BBC canteen. I know the early series are pretty old now, but the sets are that way in which they last. The whole HD with perfect sets behind them will put me off a little.

Since I last posted in this thread, one night I was bored and looking through Netflix in bed and started watching series one. I got all the way upto half way through series 8 before stopping, and didn't watch last night.

I think series 8 was funny but did lose some of it's charm and endearing qualities.

Series 1-5 are great, 6 and 7 are good but series 8 and the 3 parter were just poor shows with funny lines.

Not seen last nights yet. I will sky plus a few and watch them together one night.

Just watched it earlier today. It had an old school feeling about it even with the new set and effects, maybe its due to the fact they used models and Grant and Naylor were writing together again. It really took the series back to its roots. A good start.

Just finished watching the first episode. Couple of points:

1) I agree with how wrong it looks these days. The cheap look just fit with what they were originally trying to portray - last human being alive, no hope, despair etc...

2) There's a problem with the characters. Either they have changed or the acting was poor or even overacting in parts. I can't put my finger on it but when I watch series 6 and then series 10, it's like a different set of characters with only glimpses of what made them so likable in the first place.

3) I dislike what they did with Rimmers brother. It changed his back story and that annoyed me. His father used to beat them all and toughen them up so that they would eventually be in the space core. He's supposed to be jealous of his successful brothers which made Rimmer the ass he has been throughout his entire life. Now he is on par with one of them, he has no reason be jealous and therefore the ass he has always been.

To me Red dwarf ended with series 6. 7 was awful, 8 was OK, 9 was terrible.

BUT although I have these criticisms, I kinda enjoyed it. I don't know why but I did and I'll continue watching and continue criticising but I love this show and the cast of characters that have entertained me so much over the years.

I thought episode 1 was great. A lot of great, old school gags.

To be fair, Doug Naylor fully accepts there are loads of character inconsistencies and plot holes. For example, in the early series Lister made references to his mother and grandmother, only for his story to change by series 6 or 7 to him being abandoned in a box in a bar and him turning out to be his own father, and his girlfriend was his mum.

I really enjoyed the new episode. It had a shaky start, but kept improving. I am hopeful for the rest of the series if it maintains that improvement curve.

Yeah it's really not wise to look for too much consistency with characters backstory, they've all near enough been completely changed since the first series, best just to go with it.

Still, first episode was ok, cautiously looking forward to tonights episode.

For me I always found one of the things great about Red Dwarf is that they don't seem to take shit seriously. Character backgrounds changed just to make one episode make sense? Why not! Ignore the last 2 seasons? Hell yeah!
