Talkie Toaster is a monstrously cool mechanical devise used for making toast. Innocent enough, you might think, but the Red Dwarf Toaster will drive you completely bonkers by continually asking, “Would you like some toast?”
Kochanski was Red Dwarf’s navigation officer but, to Lister’s dismay, he learns that she died in the first episode.
This was voted as one of the favourites of British TV Red Dwarf fans. And we’re still only in the middle of the second series!!
Red Dwarf is a huge spaceship. When I say huge, I don’t just mean big I mean HUGE! huge. It has at least 2600 floors and is four miles long (and seemingly became 6 miles long in Season 7). The ship is so big that it has an in-flight movie in the lift!
Starbug, or at least the Starbug seen in the series is an interstellar transport ship seen periodically as the saga developed. It was used in seasons 6 and 7 when Red Dwarf was lost by Lister and subsequently turned into a planetoid by Nanobots.
The Prison ship is a high security Prison Transport for keeping the most dangerous examples of human and Simulant prisoner in confinement. It has a very effective system of restraint called the Justice Field.
This beautiful looking spaceship is as shallow as the crew that mans it. It is made completely of light and allows their Hologram crew to enjoy effective reality, being able to touch and feel the ship, it’s contents, and erm… it’s crewmembers.
The S.S.S Esperanto was an ocean seeding ship sent to an ocean world to investigate the progress of an experiment to ‘seed’ and encourage life on the planet had worked.
A Space Station is a highly advanced research station manned by a composite Gestalt entity called Legion.
The show seemed to explain why Kryten had become so insufferable in the last few episodes. He seemed to settle down in some of the future episodes, but his jealousy of Kochanski is still there.
The introduction (two part show) to the crazy and wacky world of Red Dwarf saga nanobots. This concept saved the seventh series in my opinion – wonderfully executed sci fi fun!
OMG! Holly returns!
At first, I didn’t give a rats ass for this show but then it sort of grew on me! 🙂
I have to tell you guys, Chloe Annette, as Kochanski looks absolutely drop-dead gorgeous in this episode dressed in that uniform! I know it’s sexist, but what the hell, I reckon you girls are pretty impressed with Lister and Rimmer in their uniforms too.
For me, it took a while to get going, and many people have emailed me telling me that they don’t like the fully crewed Red Dwarf twist to the series, but the saga had to be updated and it is as funny and wacky as ever.
This was a moany, wishy-washy episode that tried to establish Kochanski as a creditable character – but it missed out all the parts of the Red Dwarf Saga that we had come to know and love. Chloe Annett is a wonderful actor that has been introduced to play a major part in a hugely successful cult sci-fi show. Her awe-inspiring performance was wonderful, but oh my god! I’m starting to miss Bob Grant!
He’s Arnold, Arnold Arnold Rimmer,
Without him life would be much grimmer,
He’s handsome trim and no-one’s slimmer,
He will never need a Zima.
(hahaha – it should have been a hit single!)
It was great to see Rimmer’s character challenged in this episode. We all know what a git he can be. But as we and Nirvana suspected, he may be something more than a complete Smeghead!
The crew have to justify themselves to….. themselves. Failure to do so will result in their death!
This was another fine episode. It opened with the Starbug landing on an icy planet. The crew were there to investigate an abandoned laboratory. They believe that there is one sole survivor, a genius
The show opened with an amazing experiment to duplicate a strawberry using an adapted Matter Paddle. The duplicated signal is split three ways, thereby triplicating the object. In this case a strawberry (the last one in the universe according to Lister).
I can’t think of any science fiction TV show as funny or as innovative. For me, it was perfect!
The first episode or the new series was a cracker! They had a lot to live up to after the perfection of the last episode of Season 5 and they really did a great job. Sex (or at least the kiss of all kisses!), violence and some GREAT one-liners produced an episode that would live in our memories forever.
This episode is my favourite Red Dwarf episode (yep, another perfect score incoming!). It’s the story of a meeting with a Gestalt Entity – a composite of the Red Dwarf crew!
This GREAT show opened with Rimmer playing a Sam Spade character in an AR computer simulation game. Little did he know that later in the day, he would have to play a cowboy game to stay alive!
Lister marries a Gelf but then ‘does a runner’. The Gelf’s family take revenge on the Red Dwarf crew by afflicting them with an Emohawk
Besides the obvious fun of watching the antics of a world full of Rimmers, the jokes and one-liners in this episode were terrific!
