Yeah i saw that thread. That one and this one are really making me want to see some episodes again....

I don't know how often it may be broadcast in some other cities here, but here where i am it's not. PBS kinda does what it wants.
I also used to like the theme song at the end, though i never quite understood what the lyrics had to do w/ the show.....

I dont think they have any significant direct connection to the show,,,they are good though....fun fun fun in the sun sun sun.................If you want to get technical like some of the peelers do about commentary it sets the stark coldness of space juxtaposed against the warm joyfull setting of a warm summer holiday on the beach
" Its cold outside,
There's no kind of atmosphere,
I'm all alone,
More or less.
Let me fly,
Far away from here,
Fun, fun, fun,
In the sun, sun, sun.

I want to lie,
Shipwrecked and comotoase,
Drinking fresh,
Mango juice,
Goldfish shoals,
Nibbling at my toes,
Fun, fun, fun,
In the sun, sun, sun,
Fun, fun, fun,
In the sun, sun, sun. "

GAWD I REALLY LOVE RED DWARF!

They do have a significant direct connection.

As stated on the DVD commentary/extras for one of the episodes. I forget which one as there are about twenty discs and (6*8)+4 episodes at the very least. So I'll paraphrase:
 
Quote
Its cold outside,
There's no kind of atmosphere,
The vacuum of space, through which Red Dwarf travels is cold. There is no atmosphere.
 
Quote
I'm all alone,
More or less.
Dave Lister is the Last Human, with only a dead man, a crazy robot, a deranged computer, and a cat-thing for company. He's all alone. More or less (until Kochanski joins the crew, and even then - she's a woman, harldy the sort of person that one can talk to!  tongue )

Dave just wants to get back to Earth, and to sit in the sand on Fiji. Which is now mostly underwater due to a volcanic eruption - but you can get a drainage grant these days.

Not that the nerdier viewers didn't spot this from the very first episode, of course. Not wanting to cause any offense, but if it did't leap out at you the first time that you heard it, then you've probably been at Rimmer's dog worming tablets (don't even try to respond to that, I've got another billion indecipherable RD references all primed and waiting).

I'm not nerdy.

Of course I got the parts about the "no kind of atmosphere" and "I'm all alone", but it just never seemed to me like the most fitting or appropriate song they could have come up with, that's all. And yes, I understood the premise of the show.

I love ya, tnuk. In a nerdy way.

(Make what you want of it.)

Anyway, since I've been in the states PBS has been too skimpy on it's airings. I've got the whole set of DVDs now. Best investment ever. Well... Yet, at least.

TNUK you have surpassed yourself in the corridors of nerdiness! I award you the highest honour befitting a nerd of your calibre...THE GOLDEN DORK! If I could draw I would have drawn one! ( any suggestions or submissions as to the appearance of the golden dork award are welcomed)

Actually the comments about the RD lyrics are kinda obvious when you look at it, Still As KM73 was getting at, I think, the song just seems incongruent to the whole situation. The show wouldnt be the same without it though!    smile

...yes that's pretty much what i was getting at. And when i said i'm not nerdy, I just meant in your standard dorky kind of way. I've never really identified myself as a "nerd" as such. I mean, to me liking intelligent things and things that expand my brain is not "nerdy". It seems that many people here on PEEL don't really make a distinction between geekiness and intelligence. But I think there is one.

Honey, you're posting on an internet message board devoted to a cancelled sci-fi cartoon.  I hate to break it to you, but if you think that you're not a nerd, you may be in denial.

As for the theme song, it always seemed pretty obvious to me what the lyrics meant, but I suppose the second part might not be as clear to someone who never saw the early episodes, since I don't think that Fiji gets mentioned much (if at all) later on in the series.

You mean nerdiness and intelligence. Geekiness involves extreme obsession؟

I know, I know   smile ...I knew that at least one person was going to accuse me of being in denial. Well, I can't really explain it any better but I meant I'm not a nerd in the sense of that I was never particularly great at math or science, and in fact I never even knew anything much about computers until very recently...things like that. I'm referring to the stereotypical image of a nerd as portrayed in movies like "Revenge of the Nerds", for example. I joined this message board because Futurama is an outstanding show and because i saw this board had a large number of intelligent people on it. And yeah, I guess I meant a distinction between nerdiness and intelligence.

Ok, i guess that's probably enough about my nerdiness or non-nerdiness now...

It's a shame. Honestly. You're pretty good with your brain. These people could use you and you're turning your back on them. Well, take care of yourself David. I guess it's what you're best at, isn't it?

On the subject of Red Dwarf, has anybody ever tried to enjoy as many of the foods invented by Lister as possible?

Sugar Puff sandwiches are bad. Cornflakes with wine are bad. Triple-fried-egg butties with chili chutney sauce taste great but will probably kill you if you eat more than one.

I want to visit the Fatbastarderia pizza house as well.   frown  But that would require somebody to open it.

As for Lister snacks TNUK, how about a pizza with curry sauce, as concocted by Kryten to get Lister to eat Pizza.

There has been discussion created on the topic of levels of nerdiness, and there may very well be thread devoted entirely to that, or levels of non-nerdiness for that matter.  To continue tangent, being Nerd does not necessarily mean that you are completely fulfilling to that stereotype; there are nerdy things that one can do which have nothing to do with computers or mathematics or the quantum mechanics of wanton burrito meals; actually being adept at spotting out well created artistic pieces (in this case television shows) is just a subset of the ideal that embodies nerdom.

I haven't watched Red Dwarf in awhile... :\  And I don't think I've seen all of season 7 season 8 yet.  I used to watch it on PBS on Saturday nights with the rest of the non-european crowd.  Blackadder and Doctor Who came on too!   smile

Oh, ok, cool, I'm a nerd then! Well, I've always been "adept at spotting out well created artistic pieces", in any medium, but to tell you the truth I'm still not sure why this constitutes nerdiness. So now artistic sensitivity is nerdiness too? I guess you guys just use a pretty blanket definition of nerdiness.

Is there a thread where this could be discussed further?

To be on topic, yeah, Red Dwarf, Saturdays on PBS. I don't remember if Blackadder or Dr. Who were on here, but I watched RD as often as i could. I remember i used to wonder if anyone else in this country was actually watching stuff like that.  smile

From what I can gather, most of them weren't km, which made it all the more pleasurable for myself... it was like a hidden secret show that I snuck into my living room and watched every saturday night behind closed doors!  There are quite a few Americans that watched the show as well though (mostly from PBS airing them), and you'll find many of those individuals in this community.

It took them forever to get to season 6 or 7 too... I can't remember between which two seasons there's a huge gap.... actually there were two gaps, weren't there?

I think there was a big gap between 6 and 7 because one of the writers left and their was a lot of doubt about whether or not to continue. I'm not sure about the other gap.

the legality of suicide varies from nation to nation, and arguably may not be illegal in deep space three million years in the future, therefore the Justice field may not necessarily do anything to impede said act.

Presumably you'd die anyway; the person committing the offence (killing someone, regardless of who the victim is) would have the act reversed onto himself.
