Of course I’d watch it, I run a Red Dwarf fansite. It would be pretty weird if I didn’t watch, and indeed write and podcast about, a collaboration between our show and one of the biggest franchises in the history of popular culture. What a strange question.
Luke Skywalker receives a message saying that he is going to have to die in two hours so that he can be replaced by the new model of Jedi, Rey. After a big blowout party where he drinks green milk from a sea-creature’s breasts and Yoda sets a tree on fire, he tries to fight against his fate by convincing Rey that the Jedi religion is flawed and there is no such thing as Jedi Heaven, only to reveal at the end that he still believes in the Force after all. After all, where would all the midichlorians go?
Luke Skywalker discovers that Princess Leia is his sister. After previously sharing a kiss with her, he realises that she would therefore be unable to take him as her lover.
After much soul searching, he reluctantly decides “what the hell”, he just wouldn’t tell her.
Luke Skywalker discovers that Princess Leia is his sister just after kissing her. Pretending he was asleep, he does an unconvincing “wake up” mime.
“Oh, my god, what a terrible dream! Oh, hi, sis! It’s me, Luke, your bro! Get your big ol’ lumpy bum down here and give us a big hug!”
Luke Skywalker discovers that despite thinking he only ever had a schoolboy crush on Princess Leia, there’s been a stealth continuity change and he now actually dated her for several months prior to the start of Episode IV.
Lister discovers that 3 million years ago he accidentally left his kitchen light on, and as a consequence has accrued such a debt that he is forced to become a carbonite statue in Jabba the Hutt’s palace.
A neurotic Luke Skywalker is left alone on a planet with only his inner demons for company. Our heroes must convince him that he is valued and loved so that a ghost version of himself with silly facial hair representing his once-lost self-respect can rise up and vanquish the villain that was created by his own personality flaws.
The crew of The Millennium Falcon begin bickering with each other in increasingly petty ways whilst travelling through a rather uninteresting region of space. Meanwhile, Han Solo begins having unwanted romantic dreams, so C3P0 attempts to solve the issue by taking him on a ride called “The Chewbacca Experience”.
