Three million years after the demise of humanity, third technician Dave Lister awakes aboard the mining ship Red Dwarf. Sentenced to a period of suspended animation for smuggling his pet cat on board, he is joined by just four fellow survivors: second technician Arnold J Rimmer, a sneering-yet-inept hologram based on his one-time superior; Holly, a ship's computer reduced to near-senility by eons adrift in space; a humanoid descendant of the cat obsessed with fashion and fish; and Kryten, a salvaged android programmed to serve his useless companions. Together, this bickering band must come to terms with an existence which, in terms of productivity and purpose, isn't that far removed from its old one.

Best show ever, absolutely loved Red Dwarf since the early 90's. I have watched season 1-7 a million times and am still watching to this day. Don't get me wrong i love season 8,10 and 11 but haven't seen them as often (season 11 for obvious reasons) The early stuff is now dated but still funny, every season the set changes and evolves to a very modern 11 season. Hope you get as much enjoyment as i have over these last 25 years or so.

Red Dwarf combines Sci-Fi, comedy and sometimes drama to varying degrees. To a large degree the comedy is more focussed on characters then what happens to them. The feel of the show is pretty unique and changes season to season. It doesn't matter what season others like best, try any except for 9 which references the shows past more than the others. I have my favorite seasons and you will too. This is the show that got me watching tv. Personally there are episodes i hate but as a whole it's worth watching.

Cult British Sci-fi comedy by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor (Spitting Image, Comedy Playhouse), what is there to say, hilarious outerspace fun, that still holds up and is still funny to this day. Series XI and XII due 2016/2017 exclusive to Dave. We dwarfers can't get enough. Boys from the Dwarf. Chris Barrie, Craig Charles, Robert Llewellyn and Danny John-Jules are all fantasic.
