The first two books, "Red Dwarf: Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers" and "Better Than Life", were really good. I'd almost place them on par with Douglas Adams. But I really didn't care for "Last Human" at all. It felt like it didn't belong in the same series at all.

I forget if it was Doug or Naylor but basically one can't really "do" Red Dwarf without the other. One just writes bleak, miserable stuff (Like the insinuation that Lister can only relate to mold) and the other just writes OTT wacky, zany poo poo.

Red dwarf finished at the end of series 6

Thanks

I still cringe when I think of the one where they end up on Coronation Street. loving hell, what were they thinking?

X was better than 7, 8 and 9... But that's faint praise.

Can we get a title change and can we just talk about Red Dwarf a whole bunch? TVIV and CineD are awful, dark places but GBS is cool for talking about things.

True story: a friend of mine was accosted by Craig Charles while she was waiting for someone outside a train station. He yelled at her and called her a bitch when she refused to get in a car and go to his hotel with him.

As a young lad from Liverpool Craig Charles was my hero and I was so made up the last person in the entire universe was Scouse... Then there's all this nonsense.

drat it, Craig.

Hahaha the yank remake pilot where Lister is this 6'5 chiselled hunk with a six pack. Way to miss the point, smegheads.

My uncle bought me a big "Screenplay" book for Season 8 because he knew I loved Red Dwarf and it's kind of sad that season ended up so crap. There was a lot of stuff cut and changed, but throughout the book you can feel the passion behind it but it never quite clicked. I know it was meant to end with Rimmer crashing the Red Dwarf into earth and it skidding for thousands of miles, smashing through famous landmarks like the Taj Mahal and him getting out at the end asking if they wanted to swap insurance details. Also there's a two page lament about how much people hated the Blue Midget dance scene because of how much effort they put into it. lol. Effort doesn't equate quality, dudes.
