Storyline

Life has not been the same since the nanabots re-created Red Dwarf, and now Lister and Rimmer are forced to take on the guards in a basketball game. The only way they believe they have a chance of winning is by sabotaging the opposition's half-time juice with 'Boing', the virility enhancement drug. Needless to say, the match is a fiasco and their punishment is two weeks of spud duty. With Bob the Skutter's help, Lister gets hold of a virus which eats potato skins. It also eats clothing and hai.

Painful, self gratifying rubbish
2 February 2010 | by (Wales) – See all my reviews

I didn't have high hopes for Red Dwarf: Back to Earth, back when it was announced. It had been a while since they had made anything, and times they had a-changed since.

However I tried to remain positive, remembering the good things about Red Dwarf; so when it aired on Dave, I watched. All three painfully unfunny episodes.

I want that time back.

I just cannot begin to fathom how so many people could think that this was even remotely a decent "mini-series" - the jokes were stupid, the references they made to the show during the bulk of the episodes were horrible and self indulgent and everything just made me cringe and wish none of it had ever happened.

I hope and pray they don't decide to make a new series, based on how bloody awful this three parter was. Regardless of what I read on the internet - die hard fans refusing to see the truth about their "beloved series"; I think the scene at Christmas in HMV sealed the deal. The shelves bursting with sad looking Back to Earth DVDs nobody wanted.

Avoid like your life depends on it. Your sanity sure does.
