Trivia

Two versions of this pilot film were produced. The second version cast Terry Farrell as the Cat. The show's failure to become a series freed her to join the cast of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) later that year, as well as allowing Jane Leeves to become part of the cast of Frasier (1993).

Awful American remake of a brilliant original
4 March 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I saw a pretty poor copy of this but the bottom line is that it lacks the punch, clarity and humor of the original series.

The characters are thin, unbelievable, two dimensional copies of the flawed but warm and likeable characters in the original series. The only actor who came from the original series is Robert Llewellyn who tries hard but is let down by the rest of the cast and the direction.

There's something seriously wrong with the timing of the humor. It's set up as if it was a sitcom not a comedy. The timing should be quite different however the canned laughter track is timed for a sitcom not for a comedy show and thus makes all of the comedy fall totally flat.

If you like Red Dwarf, give this a miss. If you haven't seen the original Red Dwarf then beg, borrow, steal or buy the original (or look for re-runs on PBS) but give this remake a wide, wide berth.
