Twenty-seven years ago today, BBC Two debut a sitcom in space. It was called Red Dwarf, and it was created by two writers from a puppet show on ITV.
Ten series, sixty-one episodes, and many cast and setting changes later, the show has firmly set it’s place in the science fiction and British pop culture spheres.
Through the ups and downs, from the TIVs to the dinosaurs, I will never regret a single moment of watching Red Dwarf. In retrospect, the doldrums made the great episodes that much better.
What else can I say? If you haven’t watched Red Dwarf before… please, watch it.
