Absolute tosh
Series 9 was pathetic, series 10 is even worse and the canned laughter is pathetic. would you exhume a corpse for no reason? NO. So leave RD in the annuls of TV and stop trying to milk the franchise for every penny you can get. 0.1 out of 10

Crack Smoking
Great to see rehab working for Craig Charles. Replacing crack cocaine with lard has helped his life and the Lister character.

Back to Earth ruined it all. The other episodes were amusing though!

Typical over rated Sci-Fi carp. Geeks may love it but the truth is it was never the same after series 3!

Numpties...
The new shows were Genius, how many other shows take the rise out of itself and it's fans. The scene in cabin (Street) had me in tears of laughter. Mint, Sorted liked it! more please Doug.

(unrelated title) ace rimmer is hot
I'm a big fan of Red Dwarf but most of Back to Earth was amazingly unfunny. Some bits were really nice, a even a little touching, for this show at least. But all the parodies and references to old episodes were tedious. It didn't work as either a tribute, or as a special. It seemed like more of a weak attempt at seeing if people would watch a new series. Well, that and the huge DVD profits...

Haha
Some of you people are admitting you don't find it as funny just because the audience laughter isn't there? You really need other people to laugh for you to find something funny? HAHA! Such a stupid comment, really is. The new episodes show the ability the programme has to change, and it seems much more sarcastic and satirical than a lot of the other episodes, providing a much thicker, well nourished experience. There is at least another two series left, as there have only been 8 series and all throughout the new 3 parter there was mention of it being after the 10th series. Watch this space.

weak
I thought it was terrible. Craig Charles obviously thought it funny though - he couldn't stop smiling at the 'funny' bits. It was as if it was his first time on the telly. Very disappointing.

I liked it but..
I thought it was really funny and I enjoyed it, but jokes I would usually laugh at didn't seem so funny without the laughing in the background. I never knew how important that was until now. It lacked atmosphere and seemed too serious without it.

Works better back to back
Seeing all 3 episodes back to back improved the viewing experience for me. Yep, no real belly laughs, but enjoyable just the same. If they're going to repeat the exercise I'd suggest a 1 hour special or a 2 parter at the most.

What I...
..admire about Red Dwarf is it's willingness to change. The new episodes are much much better when you watch them again, I think most people have been clouded by pre-conception, the kind that turns them into whining babies. It's good to see it again once that is out the way.

laugh I almost did
There were some good bits - I loved the idea of Car Bug. But really, where were the really good laughs? A few funny bits is not enough to base a new series on.

Great!
It all tied together in the end. I'm sick of people complaining about a lack of comedy though where ever I go. There were plenty of funny moments, do people really need others to tell them when to laugh?

Back to Reality MkII
Overall it was a good mini series...however I look forward to watching the whole thing together, how it was split took any form of impact away. The Back to Reality ending felt a little safe though, dream sequence anyone?

This is alright..
Nothing special but the lack of live audience does take away the atmosphere. I suppose that it would be impossible to have a live audience as they keep moving all over the place in real life, and are not just on a stage. I think they should of at least added in the laughter afterwards. But while the old episodes/series were so cheesy you could practically see the cheese, with this 3 part series im pretty sure i could actually smell cheese!

Tired & Weak Comeback
What a tired and weak ending for this iconic show. The plot is a 'mash-up' of The League Of Gentlemen movie with rip-offs from Blade Runner and "The Comic Book Guy" from The Simpson's etc. The only vaguely funny gag was the finding of money down the back of the sofa. Lets hope episode three will have some more originality and a satisfactory Dénouement.

Disappointing
This new 3 part series is awful, the first ep was pretty okay, felt like a warm up however the 2nd was truly awful. A sad tarnish on a TV classic...

Not bad
Not bad start pitty there wasn't a live audience, a live audience to me brings an added atomsphere to show.

Hype!
It's a shame, the over-hype completely overshadowed what has been a rather enjoyable episode...I think it'll pick up speed tomorrow, it felt that this episode was to reintroduce the show.

Tomorrow
Really we shouldn't need people to tell us when to laugh, but it does add a real sitcom/jovial feel to it. I have hopes for the next installments anyway, I think this episode was just to establish the show again so we know that it is Red Dwarf! Yes we remember the characters, now we can move on...

Broom Cupboard
It was really odd watching Red Dwarf without a laugh track...Still amusing though. Apparently they didn't want an audience for the filming so they could keep the plot secret, I guess the amount of CGI had something to do with it also...

Yeah!
In only 5 hours! Hope it isn't cheesey and feel too much like it's trying to recreate the original series (by which I mean the originals which were written by both Grant & Naylor) Here's hoping for some legendary Red Dwarf, and one to remember for the right reasons.

Laughter
Series 1-6 and 8 were filmed in front of a live audience. Series 7 was filmed without the audience but I believe they showed an audience the episodes and recorded their response.
