    I wanted to start a thread for all the smegheads out there. So, grab your thermos, sandwiches, corn plasters, telephone money, dandruff brush, animal footprint chart, and 1 triple thick condom.

    I'd say a mod may come along and teleport this to the SciFi forum, but it would mean changing the bulb.

    For me Series' 4 and 6 were the best. DNA (S4), White Hole (S4), Psirens (S6), Legion (S6) & Quarantine (S5) are probably my top 5 episodes.

    It's all good though. S7 and S8 get a lot of vitriol, but they were OK, just different. Back To Earth aka" "Series 9" gets similar feedback.

    Great British humor through and through, with just enough science to keep it sci-fi.

    I love all those episodes too, but my favorite is Back in the Red.
    Especially Pete.

    Red Dwarf has some of the funniest lines I have ever heard, not to mention the best insults.

    LISTER: "Rimmer, you've got a longer yellow streak than a stampede of diarrhetic camels."

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    Watching Season one in the 80s was special because none of my loser preteen friends could stay up that late.

    It was all mine.

    The return of the century, in series 12.


    As far as Pete goes, the aftermath was the funniest part.

    You're such a...a word has yet to be invented to describe how totally....whatever it is that you are. But you are one! And a total, TOTAL one at that!

    Red Dwarf 's an oddity. I like it but I've never really found it funny. I can't ever remember laughing at it.

    Amusing yes, but not actually funny.

    Not uncontested.



    YMMV, of course.

    Rimmer: That's it I'm invoking Space Corp Directive 68250.

    Kryten: 68250? But sir surely that's impossible without at least one live chicken and a rabbi?

    We don't LIKE muffins around here! We want no muffins, no toast, no teacakes, no buns, baps, baguettes or bagels, no croissants, no crumpets, no pancakes, no potato cakes and no hot-cross buns and DEFINITELY no smegging flapjacks!

    No officer with false teeth should attempt oral sex in zero gravity? :confused:

    I've done a few toaster-y crossover memes for the RD FB group over the years.
