    In fact several times she actually left the room whilst we were watching them.

    Probably cheating on you mate.

    She was only in the kitchen…

    She was only away 2 minutes?

    For a show I absolutely adore, it pains me to see it in this way.

    I resent this. I resent you reviving my show in this way.

    For a long time I heard “Every time I see a Parthenon, I get horny”.

    It was quite a while later until I became aware of a ‘Parker Knoll’ and even later before I put the pieces together.

    What? when is this

    Blue:

    KRYTEN: And what about the ironing? I mean, how do you iron a bra??

    LISTER: Well, you’ve gotta take it off first. I spent years practicing that. Used to put my nan’s bra around the armchair until I could unhook it with my left hand. Even now, whenever I see a Parker Knoll I get horny.

    Watched some of VII on Sky today for various reasons and the entire ‘Kryten’s paranoid dream’ in Duct Soup was cut. Was there something offensive in it? Apart from it being in Duct Soup, obv.

    Maybe “Thank you, with a capital R” was considered offensive to dyslexics?

    Not so much misheard as misunderstood, and apologies if this has already been mentioned in the preceding 400 posts:

    Until very, very recently, I heard it as ‘Rasta Billy Skank’, as in the name of an artist/person.

    It’s only within the last few months that it clicked it was ‘rastabilly’ like ‘rockabilly’. I think cos I saw it written somewhere.

    Over 20 years of misunderstanding 🤦🏼‍♂️

    Plastic in general is useful to them, that’s just two more to their numbers. (Although aren’t those mad of wax? lol)
    Maybe their intel on Earth is just a little out of date and they think they’re still alive

    There’s a scene where it’s explained that the plastics factory have been hired to make plastic ‘waxworks’, using some kind of new process/technique.

    Couple of classics from a scene in an episode stuffed with them:

    Rimmer : You? You’d sacrifice your life for the good of the crew?

    The Cat : No, I’d sacrifice *your* life for the good of the crew!

    Rimmer: Yes, but the thing is, about Captain Oates; the thing you have to
    remember about Captain Oates; Captain Oates … Captain Oates was a
    prat. If that’d been me, I’d’ve stayed in the tent, whacked Scott over
    the head with a frozen husky, and then eaten him.

    “are they wearing flayed, dead GELF skins in Beyond a Joke? What else could those be?”

    In over 20 years I’ve never considered this…. makes sense I suppose.

    They could’ve thrown in a line “let’s use that costume-synth gizmo we picked up back on the SS…”

    Remastered was my first experience of the back 3 episodes of Series 3, so I didn’t fully appreciate how bad that CGI chase sequence in Bodyswap was, until I saw the original version when the DVD came out…

    > also how bizarre it was that the Tardis crew had to piece together Rosa’s story like detectives when they could have just used the Tardis to find out the details

    Well, there was a line of dialogue that went something like

    “Why aren’t we going back to the TARDIS?”

    “Because that bloke has eyes on it, and we’ll run into him again if we keep going in and out”.

    Which seemed kind of invalidated after she then went deliberately looking for him a bit later.

    >Off the main topic, but what’s your browser, and in what way doesn’t the site work?

    It may be down to the computers or network settings themselves (whisper it, I’m at work), but I have the option of Internet Explorer – ‘page cannot be displayed’, or Chrome – just stays as a blank screen.

    I have no issues using Safari on my phone, or Firefox at home. I also have no issues with other sites, apart from social media sites, which I imagine are deliberately blocked.

    Obvious ones like not getting references when I was younger, especially in the earlier series “the poor goit you made look like Helen Shapiro!.”

    I think it was a while before I understood the implication of “Maybe Ace-hole” too…

    I wouldn’t want to change Bobby as Kryten for all the fun-sized Crunchie bars in the world, but this exchange makes me feel that we’d have been in safe hands if David Ross had continued in the role:

    (Copied from IMDb as I couldn’t be arsed typing it all out)

    Kryten: Is anything the matter?

    Rimmer: Anything the matter? They’re dead.

    Kryten: Who is dead?

    Rimmer: *They*

    [indicating the “surviving” officers of Kryten’s ship]

    Rimmer: are dead. They’re all dead.

    Kryten: My God! I was only away two minutes!

    Rimmer: They’ve been dead for centuries!

    Kryten: No.

    Rimmer: Yes!

    Kryten: You a doctor?

    Can’t remember which episode, but this commentary intro, specifically Chris:

    Chris: Hello, I’m Chris Barrett, the star of Red Pilot.
    Craig: I’m Craig David.
    Danny: I’m Daniella Westbrook.
    Bobby: And I’m Roberta Lou-Ellen. I was in Dallas. ”

    Another one from Quarantine, I love it when Kryten struggles with the psi-scan, and the inane stuff he says about it while he’s waiting for it to work. “passes 8 out of 10 bench tests…” (might not be verbatim).

    The ‘LOL’ moment for me is the punchline, they way he pauses “and we are going to…. live”. Masterful timing and delivery.

    Interesting that ‘Back to Reality’ gets 3 1/2 stars, whereas ‘Parallel Universe’ (which I don’t have a problem with, but have seen maligned on here quite often) gets the full 4.

    >When Cat meets Kochanski in VII, he never really shows any attraction to her or tries to seduce her. So maybe not

    I don’t know about that. He calls her ‘Officer Bud-Babe’, and I always interpreted that as him finding her attractive, rather than babe just meaning ‘woman’.

    He also seems quite keen on watching her knickers spin-dry.

    Plus “No, I said they were down, then I asked if you like wrestling in….”

    I guess it makes sense. With a human brain, he’d presumably lose the sheer capacity/processing power of his mechanoid CPU, and would get confused.

    Pretty sure Robert says something about this in one of the commentaries, that he looks bigger due to weight-gain.

    what is Rimmer on about?

    I always took this to be Rimmer offhandedly having a jab at Lister’s generally unhealthy lifestyle. A foreshadowing of the comments he makes in Bodyswap, say.

    Given their general lack of concern with continuity, plus the amount Chloe moans on about her hair in the VII commentary, I doubt anyone was fussed about her hair looking different.
