Positive review over at AICN from regular contributor "britgeek".

I didn't bother with the last special, but i might give this a go...

Looking forward to Red Dwarf X!

I didn't stick with the Back to Earth specials (season 9), but from what I've seen, X looks good.

Still not sure why Dave are playing season I-XIII in reverse order at the moment?!

I would have thought it would have been better to play them in the correct order... and maybe still skip season 9.

One week. I have a deep, dark sense of foreboding about this.

Good Red Dwarf quote Kanedaa, and I think it will be apt.

I think it's already in danger of being too silly. I know it's silly anyway, but the older series had that all alone in space feel, punctuated with well timed jokes. This looks like 4 clowns running about in an action packed episode going by the trailers. I really hope not.

Classic episode to describe Red Dwarf to me is Marooned. Rimmer was awesome in it. Now he's doing daft faces, almost becoming a caricature of his...er...caricature. Same for Cat. The other two seem ok. I'm only going by the teasers but I bet I'm right.

I'm a relatively new Netflix customer and noticed they had all of Red Dwarf on there. First ep I fired up was Marooned. It is still truly excellent.

The whole Lister losing his virginity at 12 on a golf course. Rimmer: '12? You couldn't have been a full member of the golf club then'. The timing of that line was brilliant.

I love that line. Rimmer always had the best lines, my favourite is his leaving speech when he went to work on the Holoship...

'Over the years I've come to regard you as ...people...I met'

Well they are old, at least Kryten's got a easy cover up for the wrinkles.

Rob is 56, Dan and Chris are 52 and Craig is the baby at 48!
