Red Dwarf: The Complete Guide To Almost Everything

Do you remember a time, a few years either side of the turn of the century, when the internet was mostly comprised of auto-playing midi files and non-HD porn? Back then, if you searched Yahoo, or Alta Vista, or Lycos, you could find tonnes of Geocities-hosted web pages for each and every one of your favourite TV shows, which invariably featured the same handful of low-res jpegs, lists of quotes, episode guides and those ubiquitous auto-playing midi files.

The extended versions for some of the shows should be on the same screen as the orignal format NOTE: The extended ones do not have any audience background as these were filmed when they left

“Thank you very much for coming, have a safe journey home. Right, guys, we’ll do the entire show again, from the top, but with a few minutes of extra stuff.”
