Last night's episode had a Red Dwarf connection.
Granted, an extremely tenuous one.
The Sinclair Robot, as you know RD had several eps that referenced the Sinclair ZX-81.
Second series ep Holly said he was in love with one, "she was cheap she was stupid and she didn't load."
Series 6 Kryten said that Starbug "has crashed more times that a Sinclair ZX-81."

I was watching A Head In The Polls last night and found another Red Dwarf refrence.  In The Scary Door sequence at the beginning, one of the books in the library is called "The Red Dwarf of Courage."

I don't think there is a Cat in Futurama, he's definatley not Zoidberg, and remembering that Amy doesn't care about her clothes as such I mean she goes round wearing tracksuits ALL the time, and cat would probably die if he didnt wear a different outfit everyday!

White Giant appears in Red Dwarf series 8



Blue Midget changing shape from series 2/3 to 8 is due to the same reason Red Dwarf chaged shape.. nanobots rebuilt all the at least 12 Blue Midgets acording theyr original blue prints. (it seems that the JMC introduced cut backs in the Midgets, but not in the StarBug shuttles.  )

In the script of body swap they say that they are going to pursuit Rimmer in the White Midget.. but in spain they translated it to Blue Midget (Enano Azul)

Red Dwarf ship fleet appears to be at least 12 Blue Midgets, 6 StarBugs and 1 White Giant acording to "Only the good.." but there may be more Midgets and Starbugs.. at least that explains why Starbug keep re-apparing when it crashed totaly in many situations.. They abandoned the Starbug crashed in the earth wich had time going backwards.. one Starbug was desintegrated when Kryten crahed it, Other crashed in snow and was abandoned also, other was crashed by Rimmer in body swap and they also abandoned it (they go bad RD in the BM)

Which one's Lister? I know Cat is that Fonzie-vampire guy, and I think Holly's the voice of the ship thing, and I'm pretty sure Kryten is the one with the angular face, but is Lister the short guy with curly black hair and a round face? Which one has the H on his head?

Lister is the only actual human there, usually in a leather bomber-jacket os sorts. The one with the "H" on his head is Arnold Judas Rimmer the hologram.

Indeed.. Cat envolved from Frankestein the cat.. but in 8X1 "Back in the red I" they say that internaly the Cat is very diferent to humans in organs and niples for example.

What? I never heard of it before, my parents don't even like Star Trek so it took me till I was six to hear about Star Trek and till I was thirteen till I saw it. I love Star Trek now!

if you want to start watching red dwarf Its probably best to start with season 3 onwards, they are more immediately accessable. If you like them a lot its worth going back to seasons 1+2 they are more minimalist, mainly down to low budgets, however the writing was excellent and relied far more on working with the characters personality traits rubbing off one another.
VHS tapes of RD are available very cheaply on ebay and second hand shops. but even the DVDs are reasonable now particularly if they are used.

Start with series one, go on until series seven. That's the only way to watch it. Sure, it won't be entirely consistent, but that's part of it's charm.

I've got some questions for Xanfor:
1) Why's your name Xanfor?
2) What does the word 'smeg' mean?
3) Who is Mr Fibble?

1. I am not Xanfor so cant answer 1!!!!
 
2. Smeg is an all purpose derogatort term in red dwarf speak, often stated as smeg head, as in 'rimmer you are a total smeg head' In the first episode of series 4 Lister tries to teach the robot Kryten to insult rimmer, but because of his programming is not quite able to say smeg head, so goes about calling him a 'smeee heeee'
smeg can also be used in the context of 'smeg off'
3. Mr flibble is a hand puppet who made an appearance in the episode 'quarantine' in series 5 when rimmer contracts a 'holovirus' and goes mad, Mr flibble whispers to the insane rimmer telling him to do the most horrible things to his ship mates.

@powergirl007: All you could ever want to know about me can be found here. And if you know something about me that I don't, by all means, add it.

And since you've been so nice to me and haven't made fun of me like some people (Yes, I'm looking at you, Corvus), I'm also gonna link you to my calling card.

Have nice day, yawl! Remember, tip your waitresses!

Returning to the main theme of this thread, another Futurama / red dwarf parallel :

with kif's species its the male that gets pregnant ( kif gets knocked up a notch ) akin to Lister getting pregnant in red dwarf series 2.

Also the farnsworth paradox with all the alternate dimensions thats very Red Dwarf

Sorry to double post but this thread deserves to be dusted and lifted from the store room!

The main characters were both held in suspended animation in the original episodes of each show.

Hey, gaschief, I think you'd like this.

I wrote it extremely quickly, so it may suck slightly. Or a bunch. Or more. I'm gonna go back over it later, maybe add some more originality.

Soon.

I promise.

Really.

Xanfor - i read it. I probably didn't get all the references since it's been years since I've seen RD, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. It really brought the show back to me.

That's a smugging good idea Xanfor!     smile

I think you should keep working on it.

 Here's another idea for a futurama / red dwarf story. A gateway opens up between the 31st century and 3 million years in the future allowing the red dwarf crew and futurama crew to interact, like in red dwarf VII where the gateway opens between the two red dwarf crews. I would try to write it myself except:
1. I dont have the time ( work full time and have a young child in the house )
2. My writing is grammatically dubious!
3. Iam really quite lazy!

This is a short excerpt that just came to mind.....

Bender has been drinking an alien brew salvaged by the red dwarf crew, this actually makes him falling over drunk instead of refuelling him.....

Cat: 'There's an orange swirly thing coming toward us faster than a spanish rabbit on a springtime honeymoon.'

Lister   :(Urgency and panic in voice)'Kryten, for smegs sake have you got the navigation computer working yet?'

(Kryten is at the back of the cockpit surrounded by wires and circuits boards, his head is hanging from his neck by a few straggling cables)

'I'm sorry Sir but its a bit difficult to work when your heads been knocked askew by a drunken brute of a robot.'

Rimmer   :(smug and sanctimonious)'If you had all just listened to me in the first place and kept Bender away from the rogue simulant death ale we wouldn't be in this predicament in the first place'

(Bender is drunk and laughing)

Fry: 'Leave Bender alone, Alcohol is his lifeblood, besides have you ever seen him without beer?'

Rimmer: 'Clearly this didn't agree with him, clearly he has not been replenished by the 45 bottles of this o so fine ale that you all thought would be so amusing to give him. Was it not obvious when he started unscrewing his groinal plate after the twentieth bottle that this was perhaps not the fount of eternal youth for our shiny bottomed rude friend here, was it not ever more apparent after his thirtieth bottle when he tried to insert camera three into krytens recharge socket in an attempt to see if the sun really did shine out there...'

Fry: 'Kryten really upset him when he tried to polish the groinal plate he'd detached.'

Rimmer: (continues with rant) '...Oh no you had to let him keep going until he was convinced that what the nav computer really needed was the last five bottles of beer poured into its drive slot, Clearly you didn't see it at all, Clearly!'

Leela: 'Would you Boys stop arguing we are about to be pulverised and all you can think off is benders drinking habits'

Bender: 'Oh Yehhhgghh, (really big fire burp)what else could be more important, than my...(stumbles over a console) ooops. Fry would you get me another beer.

Rimmer: 'For smegs sake would someone get that idiotic robot out the way'

Benders   :(Stumbles toward Rimmer)'Bite my shiny metal ass H boy!' (Falls Over)

............................. ......

Actually the whole process of thinking about the above dialogue has started of some other ideas about how the RD and Futurama crew might engage, here's some thoughts to stir further discussion:

1. I think Benders laziness would disgust Kryten with his over arching sense of duty to humanity, Likewise Bender would see Kryten as a stuck up, tight ass and would probably wind him up endlessly. I could see the potential for a lot of funny confrontation between them.

2. There might be potential for a Lister / Leela shippy theme, particularly as they are both 'the captains' of their ships. You could see the others messing about and Lister and Leela saving the day, this could bring them closer together ultimately in a romantic way.

3. Rimmer and Hermes would work together in trying to compile petty regulations to keep the crew in order, but would also get into petty debates again over the intricacies of said rules which Rimmer always tends to get wrong ( as in his multiple misquotes of the space core directives manual throughout the episodes of red dwarf ).
