Shane, Paul, Alan, Tim, and Gareth discuss Season XI and what they think Heath and Angela’s reactions will be, as Heath and Angela agreed to hold off on watching the new season so they could remain the “newbies” for the podcast.
So you’re a listener, and this is crazy, subscribe on iTunes, and rate us maybe?
Special thanks to Oliver Reed for allowing us to use his lovely guitar cover of the Red Dwarf theme music. Of course, this episode being “Backwards” it’s a little different than usual… But check out his music in the proper direction at his YouTube page: www.youtube.com/ore9876
Shane was delving through his PC and found his original edit of our very first introcast episode “The End.” This was made before we had decided on many of the particulars of our show, and we thought it might make an interesting relic. Given that we are about to review Red Dwarf’s original unaired edit of its first episode, we thought it would be fun to release this now.
So, aside from the poor production, recall that we were foolishly unaware of Ganymede and Titan and unwittingly were calling our podcast that. Whoops! So enjoy the scratchy, echoey audio in all its newbtastic glory!
If you are just getting started with the podcast, you will likely enjoy our official release rather than this one, which we present mainly as an oddity two years later.
As always, our sincerest thanks to our fans and especially those who donated to keep this podcast going.
As we have finished the proper Red Dwarf episodes, the podcast is moving forward with the unaired episodes and the novels. To get started, Shane chats with Ian, Darren, Rosie, and Jonathan about the upcoming episodes and what they predict Heath and Angela’s reactions will be.
For this Christmas special, we review “Shaun of the Dead,” turning the tables on Shane as he is the newbie. Darren “Fozzie” Forrester joins in the fun.
(Seriously, given that Shane is an Englishman in Cirencester, and Heath and Angela are Americans in Alabama, how bizarre is it that Shane had never seen any films in Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg’s Cornetto trilogy and they had?)
