Hey everyone,

I recently made a community for Red Dwarf fanfiction of all kinds called reddwarffanfic. Figured some of you might be interested.

Does anyone have any episodes they could upload for me? I'm addicted to this show but the only eps I have are ones my aunt taped like 8 years ago. I'd appreciate it.

gavluvsga @ 09:58 am: Robert Llewelyn on Have I Got News For You
Anyone else see him on it the other day? I took a few moments to realise who he was, but I thought it was amusing. I reckon that show should have Robert Llewelyn or Chris Barrie as guest presenter some time.

vertical_drop @ 10:54 pm: Hi there. I'm Sarah, just joined :)
I liked Red Dwarf alot when it was just Lister, Rimmer, Cat and Kryten. I only have series 1-3 on DVD so far but a favourite episode of mine is 'Back To Reality' from series 5 I think. I love the bit when they (think) they're in the car, going over the speed bumps, and up and down the bridge, teehee!
Are there Easter eggs on the DVDs? If so, how do I find them?

Well, I'm rather tired so: Smoke me a kipper, Skipper... I'll be back for breakfast.

Note: Updated, but still not quite finished (2.30pm, 23/2/05). I've still got to fill in some information about the bonus features. It won't be here for long as ultimately, I'll probably send it to BTL, but feel free to let me know what you think of my review, and if you agree with what I've got to say. Smeg on!Read more...Collapse )

All in all then, another excellent Red Dwarf DVD. I only paid #12.99 for mine, but even at it's RRP of #19.99, it's brilliant value for money, with it's complete running time of over nine hours, including commentaries and audio bonuses.

gavluvsga @ 01:26 pm: Wow...
I just got an e-mail telling me that my Series 6 DVD had been dispatced (this was from the BBC online shop). Although one website was listing the UK release as this month, I acuually thought it was a mistake because Cult Times doesn't mention it.

Anyone else order their copies from the BBC shop?

I've been a member for a while, but I haven't posted anything yet. I've been a fan of the Dwarf for over a decade, I was holding out for the DVDs to be released as a box set, some silly person told me it would never happen, but here I am with the box set of seasons 1 through 4 in my hand.

I think Rimmer is a complete and total git, which makes him my favourite character.

I hope to make some new friends here, in the meantime, I came across this meme, I thought you guys would like it.

zeralot @ 01:46 am: Ok so i've had the First Series DVD of Red Dwarf for quite a while now but i haven't watched it right through to the end because no one would watch it with me.

So i watched it just recently and i've just found out that i've never seen ep 5 or 6 of the first series. Out of all the Red Dwarf that i've seen i could beleive that i'd missed two eps like that. I'm not to suprised but i've found that these eps have been quite popular amoung the fanfic writers.

So quite a bit of the fanfiction now makes a lot more sense into where some of the ideas came from, as in it's raining fish in the sleeping quarters and having two holigrams on board. When they clearly state that they can't sustain more than one holigram at one time. Now I can clearly see why having two Rimmers on board was so popular with the slashers, heh.

Hmm i've got to get back into reading some good fanfic's, other than the RDSS and the RDHS on yahoo could someone sugest a good place.

Just thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Gavin, and I'm from Britain. I got into Red Dwarf quite late, in early 1999 to be exact, but I've seen every episode and my favourite is Backwards. I have all the first four series on DVD and have the fifth preordered. Rimmer and Kryten are my two favourite characters.

Ok so I'm sitting here watching my new series one and two Red Dwarf DVDs over and over again and I have a question.

Who is Gordon Bennett and how come Holly uses his name as a swear?

Was he an 80's pop culture refference in England? Or an inside joke of some kind?

jadedsquirrel @ 08:27 pm: *holds palm out. swirls three times. wacks self sharply in the forehead*

..I've met more interesting people that way. It's always amsuing when they try to shake your hand as you stick it out. That said- hi! I'm a huge fan of the show, since age five, if you'll believe, back before I migrated back to the States. I even have all the seasons on (somebody else's borrowable) DVD! Not that that appears to be all that unusual here...

One of my thousands of favourite moments, coming right after the dialogue already quoted a few posts below today. Cat- "I wouldn't like to be around when one of these suckers is making a speech!" I've always been the one up at midnight (only time it shows on our limited crap American basic cable) laughing hysterically at something like that. The show has provided more oppourtunites for me to fall off of something relativly squishy into something not and continue laughing the whole time, and I highly respect it for that.

twotrees @ 08:11 pm: Because I felt like it
One of my favorite bits of dialogue in Series II(along with the whole triple fried egg with chilli and chutney sandwich exchange) is in Thanks for the Memory:

RIMMER: Aliens!
CAT: What are you talking about, grease stain?
RIMMER: It's a well documented phenomenon. They kidnap you, give you a mind probe, erase your memory, and put you back.
LISTER: OK, aliens came aboard.
RIMMER: Without question.
LISTER: They broke my leg.
RIMMER: For some reason.
CAT: They broke MY leg.
RIMMER: Right.
HOLLY: And then they did a jigsaw.
RIMMER: Right.
HOLLY: Well, that's cleared that up then.
RIMMER: Look, you're not thinking alien. That's what aliens are: alien. They do alien things. Things that are...[he shrugs]...alien.

--I really love the part about the jigsaw. I laughed out loud it was so funny and well played.

Ahem. Anyway, I've just launched a new Dwarf site. It's called FUCHAL, and it's basically a place for me to put various articles I'm writing/have written; as well as any articles that readers might like to submit.

I'm actually a little shocked that there isn't more of a buzz on these RD Fan communities after the announcement at Dimension Jump a couple weeks ago. I posted the following in my personal blog and have copied it here. Am I the only one excited? :(

Whilst perusing the offical Red Dwarf site for a recap of the Dimension Jump Convention of two weeks ago, I found they had posted a statement from Doug Naylor re: "Red Dwarf the Movie" which was presented at the convention...

(first paragraph reprinted without permission... sorry Mr. Naylor and reddwarf.co.uk, just trying to spread the joy, I promise I won't post more than this)

Hi everyone,

I'd really like to say how truly sorry I am not to be with you this weekend but sadly I can't. The truth is I'm absolutely thrilled, I couldn't be happier - and not because I won't have to eat the Moat House fried breakfast, but because American funders are flying into the UK today to continue discussions we began at the Cannes Film Festival to fund the Red Dwarf movie. I fully expect that in a matter of a few days, maybe a couple of weeks, Red Dwarf the Movie finally will be green lit, and by early August I expect to be deep into pre-production in Australia.

Click here to go to the official Red Dwarf website to read the entire statement. I highly recommend reading the statement in it's entirety because it gives a detailed explanation of why the project has taken as long as it has.

Hi all, I just found these communities so I thought I'ld make with a quick introduction. I have NO clue why I didn't think to search for Red Dwarf communities before, I'll blame it on a case space mumps...

I'm from Canada, and fell in love with Red Dwarf the first time I saw it on TV here. It's my favourite show of ALL TIME. Unfortunately not many stations air it, I'm lucky if I get to watch a half-dozen episodes a year (thank silicon-heaven for the DVD's). I'm dreaming of taking a trip to the UK someday just so I can attend Dimension Jump. I'm looking forward to hopefully conversing on all things 'Dwarf' with other folks who love the show as well.

I was sitting around the other night watching Red Dwarf and when I got to the later episodes where Rimmer was "replaced" with Christine I just turned it off.

Hi! Just joined this community.

I was just thinking that the standard of life aboard the Dwarf is atrocious for all crew (not officers). In series 1 and 2 when they use the toilet, they have to crap right there in the middle of the room, without even a curtain or anything to protect your dignity. Just imagine the smell from Lister after one in the morning...curry and lager...it is gonna STINK in there! ;0D
