Trivia

Tony Hawks was often called the "fifth Dwarfer", since he would often do the warm-up for the studio audience, and played characters such as Talkie Toaster and the compere to the The Sensational Reverse Brothers in Red Dwarf: Backwards (1989). Hawks plays Caligula in this episode, and it is the last time Hawks appears in the show. See more »

Goofs

When Rimmer and the Cat leave the living quarters to meet Lister and Kryten in Starbug, the chair that Rimmer was sitting in spun after he quickly got up. Since Rimmer is a hologram the chair should not have moved. See more »

Quotes

Kryten: In the normal course of things, it would take Starbug several billion years to reach it.
Lister: That wouldn't be so bad. Rimmer could finish his Risk story.

Season 4
28 May 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

Season 4 is another great season of Red Dwarf although it feels more settled and less fresh than season 3. All the episodes are excellent but "Dimension Jump" stands out as a series classic and one of the best-written episode. "Meltdown" is probably one of the most fun episodes of the entire show with a unique concept and fun execution (the Elvis impersonator being quite impressive especially). Ed Bye, the director of this series, brings the various locations to life quite well.

Just a whole load of fun isn't it?

Series average based on ratings of all episodes: 8.83/10
