    I should bring along my Mr. Flibble... (or will everyone be doing that sort of thing?)

    I'll show you mine if you show me yours :p

    But I won't bring my gingham dress and army boots.

    Right. So everyone'll be doing it. :p

    Thing is... I really can't decide if I want to go along looking like a standard Red Dwarf devotee, or if I want to look like a normal person and watch the standard Red Dwarf devotees with casual amusement. :p

    Conventions = devotee
    Audiences = normal person.

    We'll be treated like sheep once we're there.

    Yes you might be right. I had a look at my Making of Gunmen book (signed by Chloe, Robert, Craig, Danny, Chris, Mac, Norman and Hattie, btw ;) )... the shots of the studio audience reveal them to be dressed normally (with only a smattering of Red Dwarf t-shirts to be seen).


    EDIT: And how did I manage that? Ah yes... Swindon, 2006...

    We got so many signatures we didn't know what to do with them! :p

    :D :D :D

    First studio audience recording day today. All the vibes seem positive, although they are carefully controlled vibes it should be said.

    The most important thing for me in that report is knowing that there's some concealed entrance everyone needs to find. Important for getting in the queue.

    I don't think there will be any problems. The reviewer seems like an audience virgin :p

    An image of the studio audience on Friday.

    Again, since I've not been before I don't know if this is standard practice, but the seating is NOT tiered. I was expecting it to be.

    More reason to get there early.

    Upping this as there is a full-page ad in the new SFX magazine. The new show starts 4 October (Thursday) at 9pm on Dave. Dave has been marathoning the old series on Sat & Sun in preparation.

    If this is series X, does that mean Back to Earth was series IX?

    I was sure the series ended on VIII

    I guess that's how they are seeing it. The ad does say 'Red Dwarf X'.

    I think we might as well have a thread for the show here, it would bring back activity a bit and I'm not sure how many people in the JCC will have seen it.

    Cool, someone will have to change the title to "Series X" though.

    Well, that wasn't a bad episode. I've seen funnier ones, but it was hardly the worst one they've ever done and it generated laughs and seemed to retain the style of the original show which is good.

    I enjoyed it, especially the running phone gag. Not bad at all. since I taped it I'll probably watch again before next week's episode.
