I’ve gone all Red Dwarf. Or Stir Crazy !

The stories are so complicated and include so much – muchness – that they are hard to fathom. AKA They make you think (sorry – think is NOT-PC)

Red Dwarf is a British science fiction comedy franchise created by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor which primarily consists of a television sitcom that aired on BBC Two between 1988 and 1999, and on Dave since 2009, gaining a cult following. The premise of the series follows the low-ranking technician Dave Lister, who awakens after being in suspended animation for three million years to find he is the last living human, with no crew on board the mining spacecraft Red Dwarf other than Arnold Rimmer, a hologram of Lister’s deceased bunkmate, and Cat, a life form which evolved from Lister’s pregnant cat.

We started watching it in the late 80’s.

My eldest caught re-runs in the 2000’s and fell in love.

I never watched the newest episodes (of which this is one ?)

But I’ve been watching it now.

Shakespeare, anyone?
