Red Dwarf by JHorst on 6 September 2007 4:23pm
What do you think of it? My wife and I became hooked on it years ago. I just wanted to get any thoughts on it. It was a very clever show.

Love Red Dwarf! Seems to be slipping into the past though which is a shame as it had many hilarious moments of comic genius.

Brilliant show. Also I can't look at a certain brand of white goods without thinking of it (Smeg)!!

However, it's not as bad as the Turkish firm arcelik which is pronounced archluk but looks as if it's pronounced...well I'll leave it to your imagination!!

I had to define smegma for a collegue and he nearly vomited. It is such a great word and not at all used in the U.S., as far as I know. Is it used much in your part of the world? Maybe it has fallen out of use, like groovy, or cool. Now I think they say "sick" when something is good. I don't know what the young people are using in place of smeghead.

I miss seeing Red Dwarf here. Great show.

I always found Red Dwarf `So-So`, touches of greatr humour but sadly diluted too much with un-clever slapstick and over-use of crudity, still, one cannot please everonone, but, lets not forget, the leading man was arrested not so long ago for (alleged) sexual offences.
Whilst on the subject of words, i still think the word `Flange` takes a lot of beating.

I think the 'alleged' part is very important, wheelrim.

I think Craig Charles is really funny. I am usually crying with laughter when I watch Takeshi's Castle - not necessarily at the contestants' antics, but at Craig's quips as he commentates!!
Re: Red Dwarf by Wheelrim on 7 September 2007 4:22pm
Each to their own Anne, I LOVE watching Takeshi`s Castle, the High Rollers are a favourite, there are two let-downs on it though, Craig`s chatter, and the `Storming of the Castle`. As said though, each to their own, I am sure there are many programmes or people I laugh at that you would find unfunny. carry on!
Re: Red Dwarf by Spursfan on 7 September 2007 5:41pm
I have to agree with you about the 'storming of the castle' - there is no way the contestants are going to get through!! It is too heavily weighted against them - the guards' water guns are much more powerful for a start. Really, it spoils an otherwise good show - some of the contestants are utterly barmy!!

I didn't mean my post to sound as if you HAD to like Craig Charles, just stating that I found him funny and especially so in Takeshi's Castle.

As you say, each to his own - for me his chatter makes the programme, for you it ruins it. C'est la vie!!

I hope we can still be 'friends'.

Spursfan and Wheelrim, this is what I love about this site. I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about, but at least it gives some insight into your world.
