That horse you’re flogging, I think it might be dead..

The cast of hit sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf are to reunite for a new two-part storyline which will see them finally return to Earth.

Red Dwarf cast to be reunited

I really don’t know what to think about this. I liked Red Dwarf. Quite a bit actually– I own the first seven seasons on DVD and they have been watched many times.

But see, that’s the thing, I own the first seven seasons on DVD, the eighth remains pointedly unpurchased.

Like so many TV shows seem to do, Red Dwarf peaked in the 2nd / 3rd season and steadily dropped from there on (although they managed to mix it up a bit in the 7th, which did add quite a bit imo), with a rather remarkable drop in the eighth and final season.

As much as I’d like to like this, I can imagine that, 10 years on, it’s going to be a real challenge to avoid this feeling like an awkward deeply unfunny skit of the Red Dwarf that fans know and love.
