    Can't Smeg Won't Smeg. Universe Challenge at least doesn't have Ainsley Harriot.

    The correct answer is actually;

    Ace Rimmer: a life in lame.

    I like them both but prefer Can't Smeg Won't Smeg.

    Same here, probably partly because I've never watched University Challenge.

    Ace Rimmer: A life in Lame is utterly atrocious. Not sure why this despicable film has been overlooked from the "spin off of crap" section?

    I liked both too at the time but not really watched them in recent years.

    I know some fans are not keen on it but I genuinely find Can't Cook Won't Cook quite fun and entertaining. I've seen it at least three times since buying the DVD. :-)

    I would guess because it wasn't one of the two options presented which were picked presumably because they were part of the ten year special.

    I think the nearest thing would probably be a Red Dwarf specific Come Dine With Me, could be done with cast members as themselves or in character and even as a spoof I don't see that as all that improbable. As far as a game show goes, I'm really not sure but I don't generally watch game shows anyway.

    Definitely. The programme just isn't that popular anymore to consider doing something like Can't Smeg Won't Smeg or Universe Challenge again.

    I've seen some of the cast members on various quiz shows such as pointless and mastermind before. It would be cool to see them do a red dwarf spin for another show though. I never did see university challenge unfortunately however I remember vaguely seeing 'can't smeg won't smeg'
