Was that made in 1993?

Yeah...I worry that they're taking nostalgia a little too far. They did that for Back to Earth, as well...using the 1993 effects.

The titles for season ten:

Quote
1. Trojan

2. Fathers and Sons

3. Lemons

4. Entanglement

5. Dear Dave

6. The Beginning

Rumor is that this is going to be it for RD. (The first episode of the series was called "The End," so that's what that rumor is based off of...)

Man...they're reaching for the vintage Red Dwarf here... I can't decide if that's a mistake or not. the first few seasons do not stand the test of time... So do we embrace the simple nostalgia or...what?

Tonight's the night.

The Guardian wrote a rave review... (Though also likening it to a successful reunion of an 90's boy band.)

I'm going on review blackout, though. For nostalgia's sake, I'm going to try and give it a chance.

Holy shit... It's awesome.

It's like nostalgia masturbation, with a good production budget. It's like we're back to the early 90's again and here's this innocent, pure little sci-fi sitcom coming out of nowhere. There were actual laugh out loud moments, which Red Dwarf hasn't been able to do since season six.

Frankly, I'm amazed. After Back to Earth, I expected the worst possible shit... But this feels like we're picking up somewhere around the third or fourth season before RD lost its way.

Very happy right now.

More of the same in episode two...which is fine. I'm so happy this doesn't suck. It's vintage Red Dwarf.

And, this episode, we mention Holly (though don't explain his absence and...I spent most of the episode wondering what happened to the Skutters).

Oh man...the final episode is vintage RD. It's awesome. It makes me want to throw in the old discs and have at it. Especially once they're in the Blue Midget. It's pure Starbug-era Red Dwarf. It's amazing. They're channeling a show that's ten years gone.

The last episode also answers all the questions...like how they're still alive after season eight. Well, sort of. They make the usual joke out of not explaining it.

Very happy with season ten. I hope we get an 11... They've said no, but the ratings may sway them.

We are officially making another series.

It will be sometime in 2014 but I can't be any more accurate than that because we simply don't know yet.

As far as the main cast are concerned, Chris, Danny, Craig and myself are all very committed to making another series, Doug Naylor is working on it like a man posessed but beyond that it's in the lap of the GELFS.
