SMEGHEADS // SERIES VII EPISODE 8 - "Nanarchy"

Its the last episode of the series which means its the last episode of SMEGHEADS for a while. Red Dwarf ends this time around with a little hope. The crew of Starbug have finally found Red Dwarf… or have they? It’s a very optimistic episode but as we all know by now, it leads into the car crash that is Series VIII. No doubt Daniela will love it, but it is going to be a real slog for me.

Let us know what you think of RD VII as a whole and also your thoughts on VIII!

SMEGHEADS // SERIES VII EPISODE 7 - 'EPIDEME'

Jed and Daniela return for another episode of SMEGHEADS: The Red Dwarf Podcast! This time around we look at episode 7, EPIDEME and once again try to pan for gold in a river of... something not quite the clear water we expect. 

We are almost at the end of our journey through Series 7 but don't worry, we plan to move on to Series 8 almost straight away so there won't be too long to wait. If you've enjoyed the podcast so far (I dont know how some of you can blitz through the 9 seasons of Smegheads!) let us know on twitter @jedshepherd and @danielaphillips.

SMEGHEADS // SERIES VII EPISODE 5 - "BLUE"

And along comes an episode of Series VII that doesn't make us want to jam lego in our eyes. It's BLUE and it's not only a return to form but the return of Rimmer... kinda. It's not the greatest episode of Red Dwarf ever, but there is enough to remind us just how entertaining this show can be when they try. A high watermark for Series VII and Jed & Daniela discuss just what went right.

SMEGHEADS // SERIES VII EPISODE 3 - 'OUROBOROS'

We love our listeners ALOT (even the hardcore Daniela fans!) but there are a few out there that don't like it when we criticise episodes of Red Dwarf we feel aren't up to scratch. Totally understand that, it's like someone telling you that you're new puppy is ugly. It might be true but you don't want to hear it. Only you can call it ugly. But like said dog, it doesnt mean we don't love that dog, warts and all. Being critical of something is usually bourne out of the frustration of knowing how much better it could (and should) be.

This may or may not be one of those episodes, so heads up! If you agree or disagree, we would love to know what you think. Hit us up on twitter @jedshepherd and @danielaphillips.

SMEGHEADS // SERIES VII EPISODE 1 - 'TIKKA TO RIDE'

Jed and Daniela (with one L) are BACK with a new series of SMEGHEADS: The Red Dwarf Podcast. I know what you're thinking "Oh God... they're talking about Series VII of Red Dwarf, I remember that being saaaaaddddddddd" but that's why this is going to be the best series of Smegheads ever! 

A few things to know about this episode:

1: Dont think about the time travel element too much. It makes zero sense.

2: When your realise Michael Shannon is playing JFK, its all you can think about for the rest of the episode.

3: Netflix chose the non-laugh track version of this, and its more uncomfortable than that bit in Hereditary. You know which bit.

SMEGHEADS // SERIES XII EPISODE 6 - "SKIPPER"

It's the last episode of the series and they've genuinely saved the best for last. Daniela & Jed are in agreement for once that the incredibly strong Series XII closed out proceedings with a stellar episode that not only subverts the idea of nostalgia, but also reinvents Red Dwarf for the future.

Its a great time to be a Red Dwarf fan and you'll not have to wait too long until the hosts dive into the next series on the list... Red Dwarf Series VII! Excited? Yeah, us too.

SMEGHEADS // SERIES VI EPISODE 6 - OUT OF TIME

Jed & Daniela finally finish off Series VI of Red Dwarf and these kind of things are meant to end with a bang right? Well this episode literally does that and more. Find out how the hosts rate each episode of the series in order and see if you agree or disagree?

SMEGHEADS // SERIES V EPISODE 6 'BACK TO REALITY'

Jed & Daniela get Back To Reality with the final episode of Series V.

Will Jed convince Daniela that this is truly the best episode of Red Dwarf ever? Will she try to put it below Quarantine on the Smegheads chart? Will Queeg be knocked out of the Top 10? Will Daniela sing on this final podcast and get us chucked off iTunes? 

 

Most importantly, will Tom Stabb be rescued from that damn black hole? Find out in the final episode of Smegheads! (Until Series VI!)
