    If you were to watch a ‘Red Dwarf’ episode at Christmas, which one would it be? What’s the most ‘Christmassy’?

    Discuss.

    Lemons, it’s got Jesus, innit.

    If you particularly hate yourself then I’d recommend watching Red Christmas.

    And how would we go about doing that, Paul? =)

    The one about the pan-dimensional liquid beast from the Mogadon cluster. You know, it’s the one where Kryten burns the turkey and Lister has to get Rimmer a present at the last minute.

    You need to let this go.

    Ten series and they’ve never had an episode set at Christmas. A couple of mentions, maybe. Yes, Lemons would probably be the nearest.

    I suppose Just the Smegs would fit, I got Smeg Ups for Christmas when it came out (happy days).

    Marooned? It’s winter-y at least.

    Oh, I’m sorry… is my research bothering you…? Excuse the fuck out of me.

    And I agree, Lemons would probably fit the best, especially with the North Star opening scene.

    This is set during Series VI. I’m quite pleased with it, myself.

    Mistletoe And Whine. Whilst it is fan produced, I do really love the feel of it. Although, if you suffer with depression, I’d give it a miss…

    Didn’t we all. Didn’t we all.

    Actually, along with Smeg Ups/Outs, probably my other memorable RD-related Chrimbo present was Series I on DVD. Ten years ago this Christmas! I might have to watch all the bonus material again this year to commemorate it.

    This year my mother is sending me the RDX Bluray, which is rather nice of her. That does make it the only Red Dwarf release I haven’t bought myself, though.

    Yes, and treat yourself to the Bodysnatcher series 1 related stuff, too, for the complete experience.

    What the fuck were you playing at waiting for a month and a half before getting a Dwarf DVD?

    Not owning a DVD player, largely.

    Ten years…. I was annoyed when Ian mentioned it in that Dwarfcast, but it really hits home sometimes… FML

    I bought the DVD before I had a player. Used to avidly read TOS’s DVD updates as well. Ten years may have sped by but it’s fantastic that we’ve had new DVDs beyond 2006.

    So did I, I think they existed apart for about 25 minutes…

    Used to avidly read TOS’s DVD updates as well.

    This was around the time I started to read G&T for the analysis of the updates.

    I’d just started college when Red Dwarf I came out on DVD. I bought it despite the fact I didn’t own a DVD player – my sister had one, though, and I’d watch it in there on here. I got a PS2 for Christmas that year, though, so problem solved.

    I remember buying it from the Virgin store in the Luton Arndale Centre during my lunch break. When I got back to college I noticed the booklet text on the back cover, and realised my copy didn’t seem to include one. So I went back and exchanged it.

    RXI is the first DVD I ever bought.

    At Christmas, I usually find myself watching Back to Earth of all things, I don’t quite understand why, but it seems to have a Christmassy feel. This is probably that around the time I got into Dwarf (November 2010, I know, why not earlier?) I was watching one series a week (if that makes sense) and then around the time Christmas came around, I was watching Back to Earth. The next Christmas (2011) my dad got me BTE on DVD and I was watching that (because I hadn’t seen it in a year and also to celebrate the fact that RDX was being filmed as well) so BTE has sort of become a Christmas staple for me.

    Meltdown. Cause it’s like panto innit?

    I bet they wanted to put Jesus in it back then, but I guess they had to make do with Gandhi. Would have loved a Jesus and Judas face off with maybe Rimmer suggesting they settle it with a game of subbuteo.

    With Rimmer as referee.

    Jesus : I’ve been listening to Genesis all my life…..

    Rimmer : Oi! Jesus, that’s it your off!

    Kryten : Oh – it appears that Mr Jesus sir has hung himself.

    Meltdown has Father Christmas in it too, of course.

    You could watch the Best Ever Episode introduction by Lister in Santa hat and tinsel, followed by Back to Reality.

    > Meltdown has Father Christmas in it too, of course.

    And of course he’s mentioned in Backwards.

    Listen to the Red Dwarf Radio Series. In Bedford Falls it is always Christmas Eve.

    The audio IWCD is kind of Christmasy since I listen to it driving hours to and from Dad’s to visit this time of year. Also, Bedford Falls. Or BTL audio for the same reason (juggernaut!).

    What a lovely, lovely comment. And they’ve even gone and added a little Yuletide spam. Bless.
