Red Dwarf is a British comedyfranchise which primarily comprises ten series (including a ninth mini-series titled Back To Earth) of a television science fiction that aired on BBC Twobetween 1988 and 1993 and from 1997 to 1999, and onDave in 2009 and 2012, gaining a cult following.
The series was created by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor. In addition to the television episodes, there are four novels, two pilot episodes for an American version of the show, a radio version produced for BBC Radio 7,tie-in books, magazines and other merchandise.
Despite the pastiche of science fiction used as a backdrop, Red Dwarf is primarily a character-driven comedy, with off-the-wall, often scatological science fiction elements used as complementary plot devices. In the early episodes, a recurring source of comedy was the "Odd Couple"-style relationship between the two central characters of the show, who have an intense dislike for each other and are trapped together deep in space.
The main characters are Dave Lister, the last known human alive, and Arnold Rimmer, a hologram of Lister's dead bunkmate. The other regular characters areCat, a lifeform which evolved from the descendants of Lister's pregnant pet cat Frankenstein; Holly, Red Dwarf's computer; Kryten, a service mechanoid; and, as of Series VII to Back to Earth,Kristine Kochanski, an alternative-reality version of Lister's long-lost love.
This is an amazing series, an netflix should bring it back. I fell instantly in love with Red Dwarf from the first series. I'm not the only one.
This show is funny, the acting is fantastic, and the episodes draw you in and you can't wait to see the next. The show is well loved in Britian and the United States. I can't understand why Netflix would remove this amazing show and others that are amazing as well.
Please bring back Red Dwarf.
Stop taking the great shows off.
