I just don't know what happened. It can't just be the loss of Rob Grant, can it? He can't have really been the only funny thing in 36 episodes of pure genius hilarity.
It could be the lack of a studio audience; the boys clearly seem to be lost without an audience to laugh for them; comedians need encouragement. But it's not just the delivery, although that couldn't have helped.
My show just isn't funny any more. It makes no sense (how come those three survived and where did they get the hard light drive that was destroyed with Starbug? WHERE THE SMEG WAS HOLLY?) and it was kind of problemmatic (suddenly the Red Dwarf uniform for women is less decent than Uhuru's minidress).
I felt so sad as the credits rolled. It's like getting together with an ex for dinner and discovering the ex has lost everything that made you love them, and hasn't developed anything new in the meantime.
So we kept the telly on and watched Gunmen of the Apocalypse, and that cheered me up.
