New Red Dward series being filmed!

Oh man so happy this is happening. And both original writers are back so it'll be 10 times better then the previous average movie and average final series. Its a long article too but I'll put up a couple of the choice parts.



Quote:
This is also reflected in the costumes, which again put a new spin on the characters instead of slavishly attempting to remain faithful to the past. It’s easiest to do this with The Cat, of course, and Howard Burden has not let us down on that count; a brand new suit, obviously, and even a new hairdo - long, but with a peak at the front, reminiscent of his ever-changing locks in Series III. Rimmer’s new costume is incredible - a blue, hard light version of his III-V togs, which just seems right. Lister’s in leathers, but different ones to the ‘classic’ version. While it’s not quite the same, it took precisely three seconds to get used to, feeling exactly like the sort of thing Lister would wear.

Kryten, on the other hand, looks… a little off. The costume has been slightly altered around the shoulders, which is fine, but the mask is not quite right. It seems a little too loose around Robert’s head, and consequently it flexes and folds in a way it’s never done before. This is a particular problem around the mouth, where it looks unfortunately like Kryten has a cleft palate. In terms of colour and tone, it looked better on the studio monitors than it did in real life, but even after looking at it for four hours or so, I couldn’t quite come to terms with the shape.

Quote:
Before the recording started, Doug Naylor popped up to welcome the audience and reiterate the spoilers policy. Very interestingly, he said that the reason it was so important was that he had a real fight to persuade Dave to agree to an audience, and that if plots are posted online before broadcast, that could prevent them from having an audience on the next series. On the next series. ON THE NEXT SERIES. As indicated by the new aesthetics, Doug clearly intends Series X to be the start of a new run, rather than one last hurrah. Depending on cast availability, there’s no reason that Red Dwarf can’t run and run.
Quote:
Writing-wise, it’s good. It’s very good. It feels like V mixed with VI, with a chunk of II, which is obviously a very good thing.


Read the rest as there are some good bits there. Cant wait. I need my Red Dwarf!! They also seem to have finished filming all 6 episodes too going by other updates on that site. Love it.

I was never a big fan of Red Dwarf. I watched it a couple of times but mehhh, didn't laugh all that much. I'll give this new series a look whenever it's on though. I'd prefer Blackadder to start up again.

Red Dwarf was excellent until Chris Barrie left then it went in a downward spiral and never really recovered the newest TV episodes were pretty bad aswell.

The show went to hell after Grant left, which resulted in everything you mentioned. He's back now so it should reel in the other idiot some.

The only episode I remember is when they're on board some kind of prison ship and getting hunted by some criminal, but the prison ship has some sort of power that everything bad you do to someone else just happens to you instead. And then vague memories of an episode where they meet this thing which has their faces.

Just never really got into it. The odd joke sure but the bulk of it never really tickled me.

Yeah, the start usually helps. That sounds like an episode from season 8 which was snore season.

Agreed. I still think the first two series are the best.

I thought four was the strongest season. White hole in particular comes to mind. But I loved them all, even the later seasons.
