Trivia

The design of the Cat's pink suit from the first series was copied from an old black suit belonging to Danny John-Jules' father, who got married in it. John-Jules brought it in after deciding none of the designs provided were really appropriate for the character. See more »

Goofs

Cat is supposedly descended from Lister's cat 3 million years earlier. There wouldn't be enough genetic diversity in such a scenario, and the increasing levels of inbreeding would have wiped the cats out long before evolving into humanoid form. See more »

Stupid, pathetic, laughably fake.... Smegging fantastic!
27 June 2003 | by BunnyPhobicSee all my reviews

I have watched this show as long as I can remember, and I've always loved it! This is "Men Behaving Badly" in the extreame! The completely OTT character traits and the extreamly exagerated situation make for the funniest 30 minutes of TV you could watch! All the characters are both lovable and cringe worthy in their own ways.

Lister (Craig Charles), with his lazy, slobby ways and Rimmer (Chris Barrie), in his uptight neurotic way are the two people you would least like around in a crisis! Rimmer would be too concerned about panicking professionaly and Lister would save his beer and curry before anyone else! Watching them throw insults at each other constantly makes for the funniest scenes! Not that the others aren't brilliant as well! Cat (Danny John Jules) And Kryten are brilliant too. They all bring something to the show.

The person (or machine) that steals the show everytime is Holly, played by both Hattie Hayridge and Norman Lovett. They are both briliant! Holly's frankness and detached obseravtions are brilliantly written and make me laugh everytime.

A True cult classic if ever there was one. Will be remembered long after the likes of Friends and Will & Grace have been tossed into the pit of TV oblivion. It just goes to show that you don't need great special effects and top rate Hollywood actors to make great TV. The cheapness of it is part of it's charm!
