Is anyone else excited about the new series tonight on Dave?

Spirael Thu 04-Oct-12 17:58:51

Me! grin

fuzzpig Thu 04-Oct-12 18:00:21

Ooh I didn't know it started tonight! Thanks - what time please?

mouldyironingboard Thu 04-Oct-12 19:11:25

It's at 9.00.

An excellent plan with just two minor flaws...

i was thinking it was 10 for some reason. thanks.

it will probably be disappointing, but i feel compelled to watch it anyway. smile

fuzzpig Thu 04-Oct-12 20:51:19

I am a bit hmm that they've gone back to it tbh - I tend to think such classics should be left alone - but there's no way I wouldn't give it a chance!

Not long now grin

DS just told me, I didn't believe him until I saw this!

ShipwreckedAndComatose Thu 04-Oct-12 20:59:27

I'm here, I'm here!!

LeeCoakley Thu 04-Oct-12 21:01:22

Thanks for the thread! With one minute to go I would've missed it!

Agree, I don't hold out much hope. They'll all be old and fat and Lister is too well established in Corrie to become Lister again.

Spirael Thu 04-Oct-12 21:41:00

That was actually pretty good. smile

ShipwreckedAndComatose Thu 04-Oct-12 21:42:39

Better than I had hoped for!!

SauvignonBlanche Thu 04-Oct-12 21:52:27

Loved it! grin

LeeCoakley Thu 04-Oct-12 21:57:00

Yes, better than expected!

Bad timing for Cat to say 'Jim'll fix it' though hmm

Bunbaker Fri 05-Oct-12 21:20:09

I thought it was much better than I expected. The last series was a bit old and worn out, but I thought this one felt fresh and had gone back to the original series. I still think the cat has the best lines.

ShipwreckedAndComatose Sat 06-Oct-12 08:09:08

Yes...one of my students at school also pointed out that they have gone back to filming in front of a live audience, which they didn't do for those Christmas specials.

Oh I missed it sad I quite often say 'too slow chicken Marengo' too my dc when they are dawdling.
I gave up on the later series but I'll give this one a go.

Can't believe no one's commented on Kryten's appearance. I mean, what the actual fuck - did they forget how to do it? Ditto Cat's hair.

And they're so old! Net Danny John Jules a few years ago and he still looked really young. Seems to have aged quite a lot in 3 years.

Still pleasantly surprised though.

WandaDoff Sat 06-Oct-12 20:34:36

I missed it but it's on again at 10pm tonight.

HecateLarpo Sat 06-Oct-12 20:36:10

I was disappointed. I didn't laugh once.

The magic has gone, for me.

LeeCoakley Sat 06-Oct-12 20:53:09

Lol about Kryten's appearance! He's so old now - they can't hide the wrinkles!

Are you swedish?

grin

HecateLarpo Sat 06-Oct-12 21:48:36

It just seemed - forced somehow. trying to be funny rather than it just being funny, iyswim.

I really really really did want to like it. sad

MuddlingMackem Sat 06-Oct-12 22:10:10

We loved it. Were roaring with laughter. Thought it was really back on form.

Looking forward to next week's.

mouldyironingboard Sun 07-Oct-12 14:36:09

I'm looking forward to next week. They look older so I'm guessing there will be less action adventure and more comedy which is what they do best smile

I loved the Swedish driver/moose gag!
