RED DWARF III: The same Generation - Nearly -
The first episode of the new series appeared last night,
at least we were told that it was supposed to be. What was
shown was a very different show to the preceding series.
If you remember, in the last episode of the last series
Lister got himself pregnant. This tied into an episode in
the first series where he is shown with twin boys.
This whole storyline vanishes in a series of high speed
titles shooting off the top of the screen at the start of
the episode. You need a video recorder on slow motion or
freeze frame to be able to read it properly and discover
what has happened. (if there is any demand, I'll see about
transcribing the explanation and post it).
Then we discover that Lister has given up growing fungus in
his socks, toned down his language (not a smeggin' expletive
passes his lips), and has become some sort of mechanical
wizard (he re-built Kryton). Cat has been nutered and is
heavilly doped with tranquilisers. And Rimmer has become
some sort of "Captain Scarlet" clone.
The new special effects and sets are very well done, but
the new spaceship design must have been by the same person
who did those famous blueprints of the Enterprise. There
doesn't seem to be any toilets, why else would Cat disappear
into the bushes?
