Just so many good scenes over the first six series, the dialogue was genius. I always crack up laughing at the Glenn Miller bit

An excellent organisation.

Looks an interesting premise, Kryten looks a little more like Kryten as well!

October 12th!

If I remember rightly, they put episodes up a week early on catchup services, don't remember if that was for the first episode or just subsequent ones.

If you've got SKY and possibly other catchup services, the first episode is on there now!

Very good start, liked the jokes in the first half before it started getting a little plot heavy.

Not sure why they do these downloads though, no adverts or anything, how are they making money?

Any idea if non-Sky folk can watch yet?

Ah - Apparently I already have a series link starting on the 12th on Dave.

Dave catch-up service is part of UK TV Play and it's on there.

https://uktvplay.uktv.co.uk/shows/re...=5595795488001

They have apps. You need to make an account (on the website at least).

Said it should be on all catchup services, although I cannot check as I only have SKY. I was only checking to make sure the series link was set! They released them all a week early last year

That was pretty good, very reminiscent of Dwarf of old. The picture quality of the UK Play app on my TV is shockingly bad.

Yeah it was quite decent for a change. I actually laughed out loud at one point!

Mostly very good, mostly Dwarf. Loved the boys from the Dwarf line. Quite liked Hitler, great jamming.

"Quite liked Hitler"... maybe not the first time that's been said but a rare phrase never-the-less.

I found myself chuckling along a fair bit, especially early on. I especially thought



was quite self aware and funny.

I just wish they'd explore the bleakness of space and the last human thing, rather than just playing it for a funny premise each week. It's fine if the premise is funny, but that's often not the case

Very good. Definitely riffing on some of the classic bits from older series: boys from the dwarf, evil dictators from the past, good little scene playing a game around the table and subsequent pay off at the end.

Worse than the Leeds United team of the 1970s
