Why do they pretend that season 1 and 2 never happened?


The series always had loose continuity. They mostly pretend series 8 never happened though.

Fairly sure it's just a timeskip, not a retcon.



Everything that changes between 2 and 3 actually gets explained in the opening crawl, if you slow it down. They wrote an episode about the crew trying to raise Lister's babies, but decided it wasn't very funny, so they jumped over it.



In season 1 they were pretty explicit about Lister never having dated what's her name but they retconned that in season 3.

They also retconned Kryten breaking his programming in season 2 and Lister being the cat people's god and having 2 sons.


7 and 8 were shit, 8 especially so, so that I can understand, but 1 and 2 were perfectly fine.

If you haven't seen it. Lister's relationship with Kotchanski was just a retcon. They decided it was out of character for Lister to be afraid to ask a girl out. That's more of a Rimmer thing.


For priority purposes in this series: Comedy > Lore/Continuity

If there was something funnier that could be explored, writers would choose it. Besides, lore is for smegheads.




I forgot they did that in the opening to 3

>They decided it was out of character for Lister to be afraid to ask a girl out

Makes sense especially with how ugly and shrill anglo women are it wouldn't be too intimidating even if you are an ugly manlet


I think the first novel was also supposed to represent the updated canon at one point, but that also doesn't really work because they changed the character of the Captain to a woman called Captain Kirk, for a joke.

Yeah. Red Dwarf doesn't really have continuity.


Why do people pretend that this show is funny at all?

She always reminded me of…

Especially the voice.




No seriously, that's a five head and a half, and that nose, that chin, that five head, those teeth, those wrinkles, that head, that ginger hair, that cheap whore make up, that head.

Did I mention that head?



Derp silly me never looked her up. It is her. Clare Grogan.

"nearly dropped me skateboard"

Red Dwarf is the reason I got laid at a young age. Had to be like Lister. it also why I got into indian food because of vindaloo cornflakes.



He didn't get fired. He was offered a leading roll in a sitcom that no one remembers.



It was and it's pretty good


The real shame is that they got him back for season 8.

It's not "ironic bad". They actually put a lot of effort into making their effects look good on a limited budget. Some of the model work in the early series is really nice.

>they made a whole new model for series 8 which basically never got used because it was too big to practically film




The new stuff is excellent too. They could have easily made the reboot some tongue in cheek ironic version but it's all the same quality and heart of the original run, with some of the episodes being instant classics.



I think Dave gives them even less of a budget for effects work though. They do manage to squeeze some good stuff out of it. The set design for the Dwarf is really nice.



Yeah I love the sets. You have episodes like Fathers and Sons and Dear Dave that really show off the Dwarf but you also get stuff like Trojan and Samsara that have specially built stuff. Fantastic for a shoestring budget.



It's nothing like rlm. They (cast, crew) actually love red dwarf, put a lot of effort into the show. It's not 'ironic' bad it's just more b movie budget but A+ style points. Give it a try you might like it.


new seasons suck ass

File: 8257ad54f167c99⋯.jpg (200.2 KB, 708x398, 354:199, fathers2.jpg)


There are some mediocre episodes in there but some really great ones too. Fathers and Suns is one of the best episodes of the entire show.



I'd say it's mostly pretty good with a couple shitty episodes.


I think it's a shame there was never more spinoff media for Red Dwarf. I loved how the novels expanded the format. Would have been great to see comics or adventure games back in the 90's, when that stuff was all in a better state than it is now.



>isn't willing to tolerate a little bit of chub in exchange for a nice set of tits

closet case detected



Beta settler detected. Guess all those used roasties looking to settle down won't end up single afterall.



>implying I'm going to keep her

just use a burner phone and don't let her know where you live and it'll be fine
