    Says it all - loved it!
  • Well done DAVE...

    It returns...And it has gone back to the old days....Series X is halfway through and I like it. TBH its like nothing has changed, you would never know there has been such a long gap since the last series. Nothing outstanding so far, just good solid Red Dwarf the way you used to remember it. I cant fault the acting as it has remained a constant throughout the whole 10 series. I am so happy DAVE tv channel has revived this British masterpiece.



    Just need Hollie back, but I am sure they are saving it for another series.....No Doubt DAVE are banking on Blu-Ray Sales so get buying folks and we can secure series XI XII XIII.......moreless
  • Corny, fun, and homegrown. Oh, it's not supposed to be real, in case you haven't figured it out.

    We've been fans from the beginning. We have watched the characters build...and writers fail. If you were fans that lost hope during the last two or three seasons, come back!! Looks like season 10 has returned more to the classic form that made it such a favorite! If you don't like or understand British humor, don't waste your time - or ours (the fans). If you like to laugh and understand fast, quirky humor, Red Dwarf is the ship to board!moreless
  • The last human in the universe and his friends have a hell of a time!

    9.6
    One of the best Sci Fi comedys on TV. Dave Lister gets put into suspended animation for a while on the mining ship Red Dwarf and wakes up in million years on that ship. Everyoness dead, all thats left is The Kat, a cat thats like a human being, a hologram of Listers dead bunkmate, holy the ships computer. Later on they meet a robot called Kryten and then Listers old girlfriend. It is completly funny and I recommend it to anyone who wants to laugh out loud. They have heaps of fun, meet different aliens and new friends. One of the best shows made...moreless
  • Pete part one and two is the worst hour of television outside of a Big brother marathon.

    1.6
    I sit down on the couch to watch Red Dwarf and I am treated to the utter crap that calls itself 'Pete'. You should all know the story line by now, so I will launch straight into why this is the most god-awful hour of television I have seen in a long time.



    1- The time wand. Why was the time wand- an admittedly dangerous piece of technology- given to Lister? Not only was it KRYTEN who understood the technology, but if Lister could understand it, then anyone can. However, series 8 Lister jumps from "how do I do a dot-the-dot?" to "let's programme a virus". A stupid plot device.



    2- Kryten throwing the time wand to Bob made no sense.



    3- Canaries live for nine years?



    4- That's some god-awful special effects for a dinosaur. It has been established that T-Rexes had three fingers, as well.



    5- How can a dinosaur called PETE lay eggs (with no mate?)



    6- The Archie story. This was supposed to be in another story but was transplanted here. It explains why it doesn't actually fit in with the rest of the story. It's good that they didn't go for the alternative ending, where Archie embeds himself in Hollister's rectum. The one they went for was meh anyway.



    7- Wow, dinosaurs reach maturity quickly.



    8- Kochanski seems to be a device used to make bad women jokes. The way the 'period' joke was played out by Llewellyn made an awful joke almost palatable. However she is just a vagina and a pair of breasts on legs to Doug, who gives her little else but to be stared at in the shower and this bad joke. (yeah I know, different episode, but I hate it nonetheless).



    This is a good example of why series 8 is just a shocker. the master tapes should be buried.moreless
