Did You Know?


In an interview on Kevin Pollak's Chat Show (2009), Craig Bierko admitted that the producers made a "huge mistake" in casting him as Dave Lister and that a "John Belushi type" should have been cast. In Red Dwarf: Dwarfing USA (2004), Danny John-Jules stated that Belushi himself is the only American actor would could have played Lister. See more »

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
18 September 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

I just managed to see the pilot to the US version of Red Dwarf, which apparently was never screened. It is almost entirely the same dialog as the first episode of the original series. There's lots of recycled footage, in fact, I didn't see any original effects. The only major difference, except for different actors, is that they introduced Kryten from the beginning. Kryten was still played by Robert Llewellyn. There was also a funny animation of the cat's evolution. I can't imagine how small the budget must have been on this pilot. I think real Red Dwarf fans wouldn't like it because it's just a rip off of the UK version. Non-fans wouldn't like it because they failed to bridge the Atlantic comedy gap, which I assume was the point of trying to make a US version of the series. If this pilot is anything like what the US version would have been, then I guess I'm glad it failed. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
