Though it has diminished somewhat in quality since the original two seasons, this original one was brilliant fun. It was hilarious, and played to the odd-couple relationship between Lister and Rimmer. The later series lost that, but this is definitive, and one of the best science fiction shows ever. Expand

    It's kind of weird when you look at it at first. But the characters grow up in your mind and you suddenly find this sitcom absolutelyIt's kind of weird when you look at it at first. But the characters grow up in your mind and you suddenly find this sitcom absolutely fabulous! British producers often create good and amazing tv shows, packed with bright ideas and colorful imagination, and, in this field, Red Dwarf deserves all our admiration. For my taste, seasons 4-6, and 8 are the best. But 7 and 9 are forgettable. 1-3 are classics. Do the maths, it's a great show! Expand

    I honestly don't get Red Dwarf.
    I don't get the appeal, I've sat through five full seasons and never really found anything funny about it.
    I honestly don't get Red Dwarf.
    I don't get the appeal, I've sat through five full seasons and never really found anything funny about it. There's been some interesting ideas raised, but - at least for me -it's not for me, too much comedy of a style I can't find funny.
    It's got good acting and -for the jokes, if you like them-it's good.
    The 5 rating isn't because it's bad, it's just a middle of the road rating for me.

    Red Dwarf has certainly developed a cult following since its debut in the late eighties, despite watching a number of episodes across variousRed Dwarf has certainly developed a cult following since its debut in the late eighties, despite watching a number of episodes across various series however, I've just never understood its appeal. It's certainly a unique programme with a cast of interesting characters but, and this is obviously important for a sit-com, it’s just never particularly funny. Add to this an irritatingly dated laugh track and this has never been a show for me. Expand
