Boys from the Dwarf

1024x768logoEverybody knows I’m a bit of a geek, this obviously includes being a Sci-Fi fan. At this early stage I would like to point out I am NOT a Star Trek fan. I’m more of an elite, (very small) genre called Sci-Fi comedy, (and to a lesser extent Sci-Fi Fantasy) this obviously includes Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy and (fanfare) Red Dwarf. Let me fill you in on the history there, I was 10 years old and my dad hadn’t long bought me a TV for my room. I was sat on my bed idly flicking through the channels. I had been a big fan of the 9pm comedy slot on BBC2 for ages so happened to find myself there just as the first episode was introduced. I was hooked and have been ever since, well until Red Dwarf 8 was aired but let not go there. I used to video the episodes and watch them so many times that I still know most of the dialogue, this is especially true of RD3 and RD5. Myself and my friend from school Cassie would spend hours quoting dialogue at each other. In fact I would probably be a lot more intelligent now if I head wasn’t full of hours of words, cheers for that RD.

So imagine my absolute amazement when I was on the old RD website a while back and found out that 4 NEW specials are going to be aired on Dave next year!!!!!! Only 2 of the shows will actually be episodes but needless to say, I can’t wait. Let’s hope I’m not sorely disappointed like I was with RD8, (I still can’t bring myself to buy that DVD).

Rimmer: “Erm, I think we’re losing sight of the real issue here, which is ‘What are we gonna call ourselves?’ Erm, and I think it comes down to a choice between ‘The League Against Salivating Monsters’ or my own personal preference, which is ‘The Committee for the Liberation and Integration of Terrifying Organisms and their Rehabilitation Into Society’. Erm, one drawback with that – the abbreviation is ‘CLITORIS’.”
