    This has got to be one of the best shows to come off of that little island country called Brittian. I mean lets face it this is classic brittish humour at its best. Rimmer, Lister, Cat, Krytan, and Holly will forever be part of pop culture of the '90s. Season 7 finaly came out on dvd on the 10th, while not the best it did have some really good epsiodes.

    I just wanted to make a thread that fans of this show could come and talk about it in. So if you a fan please share your thoughts about Red Dwarf with other fellow fans. Boys from the Dwarf!

    See I thought 4,5, & 6 were the best season where some of the greatest Eps came from.

    The one with the female version of cat...I found the first one at every site I looked on, and I already have it, but I cant find this one anywhere...I know it probably sucks as much as the first, but I'd still like to see it...

    From what I heard, it wasn't a full episode but like a five-minute interstitial meant to sell the series to a network. It contains some dialogue between the Cat (Terry Farrell from Becker and Deep Space Nine) and Lister, and turns the Cat into a Klingon-like Xena character.

    Even the U.S. pilot had some funny moments, but this one sounds irredeemably terrible.

    well this one was written by Grant and Naylor, and from what it sounded like, it was actually parts of the first pilot with new scenes where they reshot Rimmers parts and The Cats parts

    Omg i just found the American Pilot eps, what the hell were Doug and Rob thinking??? they sucked major ass, same jokes but where they were funny in the British version, they sucked total ass in the American one.... and in one version they had cat as a woman... like cat woman...

    First pilot with kyrton (dont ask)

    Geez, the American actors just really don't do it for me. I think Kryten's the same though.

    I love Red Dwarf and I'm disappointed they never got the movie off the ground. To me the series is closest thing to Douglas Adams and Hitchhiker's Guide moreso than the new movie was.

    Jesus, how many failed American copies of british shows have there been? Red Dwarf, Men Behaving Badly, Fawlty Towers (whoopi), Ab Fab, Coupling and more I don't know about no doubt.

    hopefully the TV show will get such ratings that they option the movie..

    In all honesty, I just miss seeing the adventures of Lister, Rimmer, the Cat, Kryten, and Holly..

    Forget Kachanski!

    I wonder if it will pick up where series 8 left off... I hope Naylor has written the actual episodes cos even though series 7 wasn't the greatest, series 8 was a bit poor and I think the reason was that they had other writers come in.. Or was it series 7 where they had other writers doing it? I can't remember, either way 8 was bad so hopfully it'll be back to the quality of the earlier series.

    The teaser TV spots have hit Dave. So short they're practically subliminal, though.
