    BtE feels a lot longer ago than X, even though it was only a couple of years. I think it’s mostly Craig, he changed in the face quite a lot between BtE and X, in BtE he looks more like he did in VIII.

    Bit harsh, between VIII and BTE was when he got disfigured.

    Even if he did, Clem is right, it ought to have stickers and stuff all over it.

    Grey stickers.

    I like a theory Danny mentioned to me a while ago that that little window is actually supposed to be fake and is just a cloth with holes cut in it in universe too.

    Feel like I’ve seen or heard that floated around these parts before unless I’m mistaking it for the cut Trojan fakery stuff. When talking about the layout in relation to the proximity of Me² Rimmers’ room maybe?

    Like the idea, as if the JMC cutbacks had to meet some ethical design requirement so does the bare minimum on the cheap.

    CAPTAIN EMERALD AND THE LITTLERONS

    Short-lived Red Dwarf/Maid Marian crossover commissioned soley so Mike Edmonds can point out that it should have been CAPTAIN EMERALD AND THE LISTERONS.

    Barrington sells an out of date Mr Rat, Robin sues Alex Newsome’s Patrick Stewart impression for ripping off his Richard O’Brien impression and Marian decides not to be involved in the crossover or isn’t allowed cause she’s a girl. It was an ill-judged decision from GNP.

    The real question is why Red Dwarf was consistently travelling away from Earth for the whole 3 million year gap, implicitly at top speed?

    Red Dwarf was travelling for three million years but it also isn’t the fastest vessel in the universe. Over that length of time even an only slightly faster ship could get much further out into space than Red Dwarf did. So I don’t think it’s outrageous that quite a few managed it.

    I know the homosapienoids of teh films were to have hunted them all down but it would be nice if the Dwarfers bumped the derelict of a sister ship at some point.

    I’m actually not convinced Lee Bee _isn’t_ the person we recently banned from our server for using slurs and harassing me.

    The nerdiness over resolution and picture quality of the Blu-ray release makes me suspicious.

    It may be more comforting to just assume they’re all the same person anyway, ironically. It’s just unfortunate that when the mask slips it isn’t Craig Charles doing an ill-advised bit for Channel 4.

    Can’t remember how I got here from TOS webboard, I just know this place talks about Red Dwarf once in a while and my attitude to forums has been to treat them like I’ve always been there and let others worry about the post count.

    Crap representation beats non-existence every time.

    But, y’know, if Kochanski was brought back as a main character she should be a main character.

    (Not that I think her absence is sexist.)

    There’s potential in the thing that keeps her distant from the other Dwarfers being that she’s too smart for the room Frasier-style, it’s just that she’s typically portrayed as every woman ever with their sole character trait of being not men.

    I have this theory that “the fictional serial Robbie Rocketpants” is very specifically a reference to Commando Cody, a cheesy early 50s sci-fi serial starring a jetpack-clad hero who flies around saving the day. Considering Red Dwarf has an affinity for classic Hollywood, and has parodied B sci-fi before, I wouldn’t be surprised.

    I have no basis for this beyond the vague superficial similarity, but it’s definitely at least a reference to the KIND of cheesy sci-fi serial that Commando Cody is.

    IWCD references King of the Rocket Men so it’s entirely possible.
