    That certainly sets the bar low. I'm not sure it could even conceivably be worse.

    I'll hope for something good, but somewhere in the back of my mind I can hear Holly saying "They're dead, Dave."

    Sadly, I won't be going to a taping. I had to go ahead and book my flights and I'll be returning on the only recording day I could have attended. I'm still on the waiting list, so if I do get offered tickets, I know enough people who'll be happy to go in my place.

    I was really really excited when they made the recent special, and couldn't wait for it to come out on DVD, and then I saw it!!!!

    I really want this to work, but I don't hold out much hope.

    You can't beat the early days!

    Rimmer: Step up to Red Alert!
    Kryten: Sir, are you absolutely sure? It does mean changing the bulb.

    .....
    Cat: All in all, a 100% successful trip!
    Kryten: But, sir, we lost Mr. Rimmer.
    Cat: All in all, a 100% successful trip!

    Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf's Kryten) hosts this program regarding electric cars and other vehicles.

    He mentions that he's taking a break from the podcast to film Red Dwarf.
    However, I see the latest podcast is from Nov 1, 2011 so that may be why the post above this one is more up to date.

    I know it's in the can. Sadly, while I was in the UK last month, I was on the waiting list for tickets to see a recording. I got an email 45 minutes before the doors were closing offering me seats, but I was not only back in the US at the time, but anyone I knew who would want to go was more than two hours away! This, I think, was for the fifth (out of six) show - each one was recorded on a separate day, about a week apart.

    Is the new series called Eureka?

    No - Eureka is a current series on SyFy. It would be very confusing if the series was called anything besides Red Dwarf.

    Reportedly, the new series airs in the UK sometime this fall, and I would guess on BBC America not long after that.

    I think that Diana is joking... she's comparing the delay in the airing of this Red Dwarf series to the way that SyFy has persistently delayed various seasons of Eureka.

    I think.

    Your guess may well be wrong. It's not the BBC that has made RDX, it's Dave, which is a commercial company. It'll be aired by the highest bidder or as part of a package. Of course, it MAY be BBCA, but I wouldn't bet the farm on it!

    Actually, I though she was referring to "Better than life" compared with the current Eureka storyline

    Hmm. Yeah, still not getting a good feeling about this at all.

    For one, it's kind of sad watching especially Craig Charles. He looks (to me) much older than his 48 years, but yet he's trying to still play Lister like he did when he was in his 20s. (Chris Barrie looks passable, Danny John-Jules looks surprisingly good, and of course Robert Llewellyn is under a ton of makeup, as usual.)

    Second, there's just something not right about seeing Red Dwarf in HD. RD was always a very cheaply made show... that was part of it's very kitch-y appeal, for me. The SD, video tape look was a part of that for me, while at the same time hiding some of that cheapness. I almost think that (and I know this will be sacrilege to some) they should have dug out some old SD cameras for this.

    *sigh* I dunno. Right now, all I'm getting is that weird squick feeling, like when you see an over the hill guy trying to act like a teenager.

    You summed up my thoughts here. Charles looks almost as bad as Edward Furlong whose heroin use shows.
