- Red Dwarf
Red Dwarf is soooooo funny! Thank
goodness for public television! My friend Wade introduced me to Red Dwarf
at work. When we worked in K-Mart in the electronics department, he would
put Red Dwarf on the 20 or 30 TVs they had there. After watching a couple
of episodes, I was hooked. I especially enjoy the earlier episodes.
Many people don't like them because they are really low budget and almost solely
character driven. That's why I like them so much. Past season three
the comedy and character development is toned back to make more room for
sci-fi themes. I like the episodes less and less as proceed through to
the end of the sixth season. I hope the show gets better. My favorite episode
is Marooned. It has the perfect blend of sci-fi and character interaction.
Red Dwarf 1
- 1. The End
- 2. Future Echoes
5. Confidence and Paranoia
- 3. Balance of Power 6.
This is where it
all began. This low budget space comedy unknowingly would become super-popular.
The cheesy sets, the sometimes horrid sound recording (which continues
on through season 5), the ultra sloppy Lister. I love it! This and the
2nd and 3rd seasons are my favorites!
Red Dwarf 2
7. Kryten 10.
Better Than Life 11. Queeg
Thanks for the Memory 12. Parallel Universe
This season has so many funny parts! "Androids.
Everybody needs good androids." He he he! Better than life was hilarious.
"Arrrrnooooold where are the nappy sacks?" Thanks for the memory
had a strange ending. Stasis Leak showed the first real "goof up"
as far as Lister's quest to get home was concerned. In this episode he
could have stayed in the past and got off the ship for good, but then,
we wouldn't have a show anymore. :) Queeg was wonderful. It seem that Grant
Naylor tried to have an episode centered around each character in this
season. Holly pulling one of the best jokes EVER. I would have died if
I had to live for the rest of my life under Queeg! That was good. Parallel
Universe was of course the first appearance of the female Holly and the
alternate Red Dwarf crew. As you have noticed, these first two seasons
have had little Sci-Fi in them. they are mostly about the people on Red
Dwarf. That changes in season 3 on.......
Red Dwarf 3
The Last Day
It is hard to say which is my favorite
season, but if I had to give an answer it would be season 3. "Wait
a minute. I never used to be a man!" He he he! Backwards was the very
first Red Dwarf episode I had ever seen. The Last Day was a riot. "Its
Marlyin Monroe!" "Its a robot kit." "She's a robot?! You're kidding!"

Duct Soup 41.
I must tell you ,
I was expecting the worse here. I have heard a lot of bad stuff about season
7. I have been pleasantly surprised. Its not that bad! Better still, it
pretty good. Maybe its that cinematic look of the new type of camera they
use, or the computer generated special effects. Or maybe its because there
is more original material than last season. Sheesh! Season 6 was nothing
but old material redone again. Of course its not as good as seasons 1,2,&3
but its pretty fun to watch. I think that the focus of the show has changed
as well. Its no longer 'try to get back to earth', its bum around the universe
and have a laugh. I guess.
