RED DWARF X(No, it’s not Porn)

Red Dwarf X

That’s right smeghead the best show in the verse is back after an uncomfortably long time and it’s nothing but awesome. The new tenth season is the first full series in 13 years and looks set to bring about a comeback. After the end of season 8 in 1999 shooting had paused in favour of a feature film, which unfortunately never materialised, and subsequently the new head of the BBC chose not to bring it back for a ninth season. The three part mini series that has been the only thing to come out in the mean time drew the ire of many. We personally found the mini-series enjoyable despite its problems never the less our approach to the new series like many Dwarfers was filled with trepidation.

Luckily we needn’t have worried. Before the start of the new series we had the added enjoyment of the countdown of the show so far leading up to the new episodes on Dave  which rekindled even more of our love for Red Dwarf. From the first rendition of “It’s cold outside….” which we cheerfully sang along to, to the last “Aoooow Yeah” from Cat we were hooked. Despite Craig Charles protestation that he is the only young looking member of the cast, funnily enough they have aged. Luckily this does nothing to detract from the show in any way and they still have the wonderful chemistry that made the show great in the first place. Rumours have also surfaced that in a new series “Red dwarf XI” Norman Lovett the original Holly may return to the show. Making us ecstatic as one of our only issues with the original show was probably the periods of his absence.

You can get access to the show in a number of ways, If your in the UK it is currently showing on the Dave channel. It is also available from iTunes, Netflix and Love Film, as well as a number of less reputable places…..I’m guessing. Loads more Information can be found on the Red Dwarf Website but to wet your appetites below is the series trailer. So what are you waiting for Smeg for Brains get off your arse and start watching.
