Smeggingly good show
21 February 2004 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

'Red Dwarf' is classic comedy. The show really became good once Kryten came in as Robert Llewellyn is great as the grumpy android. Craig Charles and Chris Barrie are good too. The first series was OK but as from the second the show really became excellent and as a result is one of the UK's best sit-coms.
