a glimmer of light that things might kick off again but not perfect
12 April 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I found the new red dwarf film/short series Funny yet however disappointing as it swerved off from its low budget BBC roots onto Dave. Sure the new computer animated graphics were impressive in all 3 episodes yet i found characters especially in the first episode isolated from each other as the sets seemed too large and glossy. The plot wasn't perfect but it was better than the ones in the last few episodes created. I gave the show a score of 8 in truth because i had been dying to see a new R.D episode, and fingers crossed if the viewings were high the cast might be persuaded to create another great "long" series.If the production crew read this i would advise them to get back onto the BBC CAUSE THE ADVERTS ON DAVE WERE EVERY 8 MINUTES :(.Plus with a lower budget i believe on BBC the producers can become more creative with the scenes and avoid pointless unfunny characters like that CGI robot in the first episode.
