Trivia

Although he is a hologram who is not supposed to be able to touch things, Rimmer rides a WWII motorcycle in one scene. However it may have been generated by Holly via the light bee; Holly appears in the motorcycle's headlamp in the same manner as a video monitor, and dialogue suggests that she is in control of the cycle.

Goofs

After Rimmer rides off on his motorcycle after ordering the waxdroids to attack, in the wide shot of the waxdroids advancing from their position seconds later, he's still in the background where he was before. See more »

Season 4
28 May 2008 | by ametaphysicalsharkSee 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
