Red Dwarf even more dwarfish
Old clips glued together to make mobisodes
For only three quid a shot over-excited Red Dwarf fans can see 25-second cartoons of their favourite bits, newly animated by Pitch Entertainment, and packaged with three ring tones comprised of quotes from the series.
Quite why the original video needs to be replaced with brightly-coloured animation isn't clear, it could be to ensure better rendering on a mobile-phone screen, though the cynical might conclude it's to give the impression that the mobisodes are genuinely new content.
Certainly that's how The Telegraph covered the launch, with a particularly gushing tribute to the owner of Pitch Entertainment, Martin Bowley.
If you desperately want to see animated versions of the cast speaking well-worn lines then you can sign up for only three quid a week, or just watch the real thing on Dave. ®
Playing on Dwarf Fans
Because we all want to see what Rimmer did next, unfortunately it may never appear (they have trouble getting all the cast together for filming, they are all too busy now, shame).
Twist my nipple nuts and send me to Alaska
But which Kochanski? Gotta be Claire Grogan
Anyway it's a small off-duty Czechoslovakian traffic warden
"I give up, it's a banana"
What sort of smeghead will be silly enough to cough up three quid a week?
Mainly those who believe that Arnold J. Rimmer is a vastly misunderstood character, I guess
"For just three pounds a week you get a new picture of Kochanski"
(maybe not such a bad idea after all)
