Observation Dome


In the first trailer on the DVD, where Rimmer disappears from the cockpit, the sound is different and the visual effect isn't in place - he just disappears. Proving that Presentation were using clips from a rough cut of the episode.



Well spotted. But since it has the laughter intact, does that mean that even the audience saw a rough cut, without effects or sounds?

Um...surely it means that, just like Cheers, 'Red Dwarf is filmed before a live studio audience'. (That scene would have been - with Teh Barrie stepping out as-rehearsed for the effect to be cut later. But sure, usually an audience would be shown a rough cut - often pre-record scenes would have been shot the day before, or even the same day.)

Oh, Phil - while you're on. Stinky Pinky has been popularised in the UK under the name Wonky Donkey. And where I come from, shandy is made with beer and lemonade; no gingerness is involed. Which explains at least two of my crap interview answers. :-)

>Um...surely it means that

That really comes as a surprise to me. Maybe just because the other shows I enjoy either a) aren't as effect-heavy as Dwarf or b) don't have a studio audience, but I figured just about ALL the effects would be in place to be shown to the audience.

Glamor shots and such of the ship, I can understand those being spliced in later, but something that is actually a plot development, or a joke (such as Rimmer disappearing and the Kryten/Cat exchance that follows) would have been recorded previously.

I learned something today.

Make that two things I've learned today. It sounds horrible. I'll try some this weekend.

Horrible?! It's one of the most refreshing drinks ever! It makes you look like a girlie pants if you drink one in public, though.
