Pretty much what it says on the tin. We saw Lister try to become a chef to outrank Rimmer, but would he have been an officer?

What other postings on Red Dwarf would be officer status besides navigation officer? What other exams could be taken?

Will Lister be an officer if he passes his mechanical engineering exams?

These questions and many others will be answered in the next episode of...Soap! Er...wrong show...

I was rewatching Trojan the other night, and caught a few things I hadn't noticed before and that I don't think I've seen mentioned here. First off, when Rimmer's complaining about the lateral thinking questions, Lister asking him to lay a question on him seems like a genuine offer to help, at least until he hears about the moose and can't resist taking the smeg. Then, when Rimmer has the resentment attack, it's Lister (not, say, Kryten) who protests that they shouldn't draw on him. Okay. he caves to temptation, but still, he tried. Last, when Crawford fires on Lister, is it just me, or in the split second before Howard jumps in front of the blast, does Rimmer look terrified?

Oh a completely unrelated note, I'm having a difficult time trying to figure out Rimmer's class background. On the one hand, in the 1st series he complains about not having the right parents and the right nobby background, and about how someone like Todhunter would have been raised on gazpacho soup and champagne. On the other hand, in The Beginning, the Rimmers are apparently decended from princes (do I have that right? I can't check right now), and they're clearly well-off and have what seems to be a full-time gardener. I admit I'm not familiar with the nuances of the British class system, so I appreciate any clarification. I also wonder if the colonization of the solar system has any effect on this. Thoughts?

Alright, I'm a fairly new to the Red Dwarf fandom, but don't hold that against me. Anyway, my mind has been pondering on and off concerning Kryten's quick infodump in "Entangled" to Rimmer, and I'd thought it could make a good discussion (roughly paraphrased from memory):

"Have you forgotten? If Mister Lister dies, then the computer automatically shuts you down."Read more... )

Was Red Dwarf your first fandom? If not, what was?

How'd you get into Red Dwarf? Was this comm your first RD comm?

How'd you get into slash? Was this comm your first slash comm?

Did you come here via the RDSS Yahoo Group, or alternatively join the RDSS Yahoo Group after hearing about it here?

What's your RD slash OTP?

What's your RD slash favourite rarepair?

If you write slash as well as reading it, how did you get started? Were you inspired by RD, or another fandom? If you were inspired by RD, did anyone here start you down the slashing path?

Bonus points if I was personally responsible for popping your slash cherry. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

I have a question, and this is the best place to ask, so here I am.

At the end of Season II, did Lister and Rimmer move their quarters? I think they did, as evidenced by the new look and the shower addition, but there isn't any confirmation by the show itself. What deck level were their original quarters on, and what deck level are they on now? Also, where does the Cat live?

Also, how do they go up and down decks? I know about the lifts, but are there ladders or something? (I think there would be, in case the ship lost power (like in White Hole.)

There's no rush, but I would like some clarification for a a fic I'm writing.

Okay, stupid question.

Is it Stroke Me a Clipper, I'll be back for Christmas,


Smoke Me a Kipper, I'll be back for Breakfast?

Or some variant thereof?

This is such a retarded thing to ponder, but it's been bugging me for over a week.
In the 2nd DJ clip on YouTube, when Chris Barrie says that he and Craig Charles didn't try to turn each other on sexually cause there were 50 poeple staring at them like they were nuts...does that then imply that if there hadn't been 50 other people there they would have been trying to turn each other on sexually?

I was doing the vid, and looked through some of the bonus segments in VIII that I skipped the first time around.

Cut for mild VIII spoilers. )

My sister does not like Red Dwarf. She thinks parts of it are funny, and she rather likes Rimmer due to the rather good bits i've made her watch, but essentially she dislikes it. As such I find it utterly halirious that half an hour ago, while we were watching Tomb Raider II, her four-year-old son ran into the room, preformed a flawless Rimmer salute, sang half a verse from tongue tied and then said 'Stoke me a clipper, i'll be back for christmas' and ran out again.
I've been suitibly chastized for corrupting the young and impressionable...but by God I wish i'd had a video camera <3 I laughed so hard I almost dighed.

I was watching the Red Dwarf Cast commentry's today, backwards I might add though i'm not sure why--started with season 7 and worked my way backwards. Missed season 4 since i don't currently have it and have gotten to season two. Anyway, I was noticing that the actors, dispite that fact that there are only three constant and three changable, seem to have formed groups. Uhm...whats that american word? Klicks? cliques? whatever. I noticed that Whats-his-name who plays Kryten and the bloke who plays Cat (benifit of the doubt on my memory here people, it's 1am and i've been watching RD cast commentries backwards since about 4pm yesturday) seem to be good friends, whereas Chris Barrie barely even says a word when Craig Charles isn't there. It was mainly the Chris Barrie, Craig Charles thing I was noticing since Craig Charles wasn't in the season 5 commentry--it's my favourite season with most of my favourite episodes and I was looking forward to finding out what the two had to say about them =P only to have Craig Charles not there and Chris Barrie barely said a word for the entire thing. I found the implied relationships interesting.

I also highly recommend watching the cast commentrys on a laptop, or likewise, with headphones. That's how i've been doing it (my sister stole my PS2 so I couldn't watch them on the TV) and I really must say, ^_______^ Gosh there's nothing like having Chris Barrie purring right into your ear =P

I'm thinking you guys will appreciate this *giggles*. I came across it by accident and despite the stupid writing over the top, was happy to see some slashy sort of action.

Sort of.

I think the reactions are quite close to what we expect from some yummy Red Dwarf slash hahaha.

New Footage

Hi, I just joined the community, although I'll admit I've been lurking for a long time, but when I read that the Red Dwarf Season 7 DVD will have new footage of the Blue kiss I thought this was as good an opportunity as ever to post. I can't post the link since it's on the Red Dwarf site and I don't know how to get around the address bar....erm...thing, so I'll just quote the paragraph:

"It was with some trepidation that Andrew Ellard – that's me – took to the stage (well, sat on the edge of it anyway) to show a preview of the Series VII DVD documentary Back From the Dead. But the section – based on the episode Blue and featuring never-before-seen footage of the Rimmer/Lister kiss – went down exceedingly well."

I found it in the Down Time section on http://www.reddwarf.co.uk/ on the second page of the article titled Dimension Jump XII.

So. I had far, far too much time on my hands yesterday, largely owing to the eight hours I spent on trains to York and back (*dead* x__x), and my one-track mind naturally turned to the glory that is slash. Specifically Dwarf slash, because meeting Chris last weekend seems to have rekindled the flames of my rampant R/L love. And since it was pretty much just me and my iPod for the entirety of the journey, it wasn't long before I'd got it into my head to make The Ultimate Playlist Of Slashy Dwarfdom, a.k.a a big list of songs that I connect with Rimmer/Lister.

I've got a good few tracks in there now, but I wanted to ask whether any of you had any song suggestions. Can be anything, the only criterion is that it's R/L related. I'll eventually get all the songs together and post the list on here, along with lyrics and possibly download links and all that jazz. Come, post, join me in my overzealous slashquest!
