Goofs

When Lister is wearing his foul-smelling moon boots, it seems as though Rimmer can smell them due to his expression and Lister telling him his eyes are watering, even though he denies it. As a hologram, Rimmer shouldn't be able to smell. See more »

Kryten
26 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

A really strong season 2 opener with a pastiche of the Australian soap opera Neighbours called Androids and the introduction of Kryten played by David Ross for the first and only time.

Red Dwarf intercepts a distress call from the Space cruiser Nova 5. The crew rush in to help as the android Kryten tells them that the crew consists of beautiful women who have not had male company in eons. The crew have been dead for so long that only their skeleton remains.

With Kryten aboard Red Dwarf and built only to serve. Rimmer gives him some tasks and Lister wants him to rebel.

The episode really has some wonderfully funny scenes and gags. Such as Cat needing to be dragged away from a mirror to Kryten's Brando impersonation.

I really liked David Ross's version of Kryten. I always wondered why his English accent was replaced by a seemingly mid atlantic version when it was recast.

I always felt when the first series of Red Dwarf was broadcast that I was the only one watching. Now I could get other people to see the show with me.
