“The strange thing about Red Dwarf, though, is that it jumped the shark after the first season. In the next seven or so seasons, Cat becomes just another member of the crew, piloting away missions and just generally caring for Lister and Co. whenever they’re lost in space. Not to mention that with a higher budget everything became a bit less dark (as being stuck in space should) and too heavy on the rudimentary special effects.
But, you can’t judge a character by the mistakes of the producers, and as long as you watch Season 1 and only Season 1, you won’t give a cat’s ass that Cat’s just plain ridiculous.”
I really don’t know what to say.
Actually, I do. PLEASE MAKE IT STOP.
Oh, and I like the idea that one of the problems with the character is that “he dresses like a seventies pimp” (no, he doesn’t) and “spits out 20th Century pop-culture references”. Erm, yes, because that’s the main issue, rather than the fact that he SPEAKS ENGLISH.
