Trivia

The original British cast was at first jealous of Robert Llewellyn for being cast in this pilot. Llewellyn was told to keep it a secret. But makeup artist Andrea Finch let it slip that she was going to the US to do Llewellyn's makeup. See more »

Holly: Well I couldn't let you out until the radiation died down to a safe level. Really, you're gonna laugh.
Dave Lister: [exasperated] How long?
Holly: Just under three million years.
Dave Lister: [in shock then pauses contemplatively] My baseball cards must be worth a fortune!

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
18 September 2002 | by guyfromohSee 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.
