    Can someone explain how this works in very simple terms? I know about the Ouroboros thing, but i still don't really get it.

    Pretend i'm thicker than the offspring of a tv weather girl and Hudzen 10 with a loose intelligence chip.

    Of course, none of that explains how this cycle began. Who was the original Lister's dad? Has Lister always been his own dad? If so then how was he born to have Lister in the first place? It's a classic 'which came first' conundrum. Which came first, Lister Sr or Lister Jr?

    Yeah. That's the bit i don't get. It reminds me of a scene from Austin Powers. Do you suggest we don't worry about that sort of thing? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8w95xIdH4o

    Just to note that threads about the show itself should be posted in the "Red Dwarf on TV" section, not this one, which is specifically for matters relating to the site!
