Omg valhallalagoon, did you just post this because it’s funny, or have I FINALLY met another person who has seen/heard of Red Dwarf without me having to show it to them?
/if it’s the latter we’re gonna have to go ahead and be best friends
I have honestly never heard of it. I’m so sorry. I posted this because it made me laugh, also I am slightly high on my pain medication.
But I am always down to learn/gain nerdy knowledge!
Omg. Red Dwarf. British sci-fi/comedy show from the late 80’s. Pretty sure there are episodes on Amazon Prime, if you happen to have that. I will look when I get home and see if I can find episodes anywhere online (I have a box set, you see) because you may just have to give it a try.
It’s about a guy named Dave Lister who is on a space mining ship and is like, the lowest ranking person there, just trying to make some money so he can buy a ranch in Fiji. So, first episode he gets caught with his pet cat on board the ship (which is super bad) and since he won’t tell his superiors where he’s hiding the cat, he is punished by being put in a suspended animation chamber. When he is let out, the ship’s onboard computer tells him that there was an accident, and the entire crew of the ship is dead, and also they’ve been hurtling through space for 3 million years. The only survivors of the accident are Lister’s shithead roommate Rimmer, who is dead but the onboard computer was able to bring him back as a hologram, and Cat (the dude in the lowest pic here) who is the evolutionary descendent of Lister’s pet cat.
Omg. Just. It is perfect. My mom is obsessed with it, so this show is like, the background of my entire childhood and I only just now appreciate most of the jokes because I’m an adult and can understand them now.
/jesus can you tell this show makes me so excited to talk about?
/but it’s amazing, so there’s that
That sounds fucking hysterical. I love sci-fi and I like well-done comedy, though I admit I’ve not had a lot of exposure to British comedies. I’ll definitely give it a look!
