Dear Sci-Fi Online
Having read the review for the Red
Dwarf VI DVD, I have to say it seemed quite
well balanced and well written with a modicum of background
knowledge of previous releases. However as one of the four
'fan' commentators, the following statement bothered me slightly:
is another fan commentary (on Gunmen of the Apocalypse)
which sadly isn't as good as the one recorded for Series
Five's Back to Reality. Only one of the fans seemed
to have bothered to do any preparation - and he got stick
for it too by the other fans."
the one who reportedly did prepare, I would just like to say
that the whole thing was done in a very light hearted way
and any 'stick' as you call it was intended as, and taken
as, a bit of fun.
none of us were present at the recording of Gunmen
and therefore any comments were really down to our own feelings
about the show combined with a spattering of knowledge.
the Red Dwarf fans I know (And there are quite a few)
share a similar sense of humour and taking the rise out of
each other is a way of life. I'd hate to think, anyone reading
the review would think there was any serious 'stick' regarding
preparation, In fact, we all got on very well, and I talk
to one of my co-commentators almost daily.
up the good work.
