Q. What’s the only thing worse than not releasing a new podcast for ages?
A. Recording a new podcast and then forgetting you’d done so for the best part of four months.
And so with the level of competence you’ve come to expect over the last thirteen years, we invite you to join Jonathan Capps, Danny Stephenson, Ian Symes, Tom Pyott and TORDFC’s Jo Sharples as we discuss Better Than Life. Not the novel, or the long-running former Fan Club magazine, but the second episode of the second series of popular science-fiction comedy programme Red Dwarf. We discuss the differences betwixt episode and novel, the impact of The Beginning‘s revelations about Rimmer’s past, and Doug Naylor’s time-travelling cameo.
Incidentally, does anyone have any preference for which episode we do when we next have three or more of us in the same room, currently predicted to be around 2018? There’s only a handful of episodes left that haven’t had our special treatment, so we’re taking requests…
