New "Red Dwarf" - hit or miss?
So after 10 years, the cult comedy "Red Dwarf" is returning to TV for three new episodes. Did you watch part one last night? As a huge fan of the original series, I have to say that I was disappointed. I didn't think it was very funny - in fact, I think I only laughed twice. I was impressed though that all four actors - Craig Charles (Lister), Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Danny John-Jules (Cat), and Robert Llewellyn (Kryten) - from the original series returned for the special. My husband and sons are also huge fans of the show and they thought the special last night was okay. They admitted it was a bit slow but they figure it's the first episode out of three and needed to set up the story. I'm not so willing to excuse its shortcomings. What did you think?
