I reckon this should go down as one of the great British sitcoms of all time.
Any show that had Jean Luc Picard threatening to sue cos he thought it was a pisstake out of Star Trek Next Generation should be lauded.
And the feem toon is just brill.
There are similarities to this song and being a Palace fan.
Please witness.....


It's cold outside
There's no kind of atmosphere
I'm all alone
More or less.....

Nuff said.

It's probably my favourite ever TV show, not just comedy show. I love it. That story about Patrick Stewart threatening to sue, he said he was channel surfing one night and came across it and thought it was taking the p**s outta Star Trek. But after a while he realised it was different and became a fan of the show.

He's on one of the DVD extras talking about.

Yeah I knew that really, ginsin.
Good bloke is Picard.
Well any bloke who makes James Corden look like an even bigger fat c**t than he already is can count me as a fan.

Who did then?

And I know what smeg means too.

My mate thinks me and him were the first people to use it in the world. I learnt it from my cousin, cochise. ;)

Certainly with regards the first 5/6 series, this should be regarded as one of the greatest British sitcoms of all time.
I hate the fact that Fawlty Towers always gets lauded (vastly overrated imo but then I am no fan of Cleese who I think is a wanker) but this gets overlooked far too often.
Grant and Naylor, you must be proud.
For the first half a dozen series anyway.

I think series X has been a great improvement on the last few specials they did. It's definitely back to it's original comedy value. Funnily enough Chris Barrie is the only one that's looking much older.

Series 4 was arguably the one that should be saved for posterity's sake of what Red Dwarf does if only 1 series could be - White Hole, Meltdown, Justice, Dimension Jump to name a few.

Series 6 was very quotable in its one liners but, in terms of ideas, it's essentially series 5 with less darkness, more laughs added. There's always an enemy every episode.
