So here it is, a newbie starting a new thread. Ack. Be kind everyone. On my lengthy journey to and from work I listen to the Frank Skinner podcast (stay with me on this one!) On his show Frank Talks about "idiotic eureka moments", which is when you suddenly realise something the entire world already knows. The examples have ranged from listeners not realised "Sooty and Sweep" were chimney sweep based puns and HP sauce being named for the Houses of Parliment (even with the little picture of them on the bottle!) Well I'm hoping this thread can be like that, but for Red Dwarf. I'm new here so I'm hoping I can get away with asking questions about the jokes I don't get without completely being ripped to shreads, but who knows how it'll go down eh. I invite everyone to share their examples to, like a lot of people I grew up with red dwarf and it took a long time before the more adult references made sense to me, but I'm hoping that this thread won't go down that road jusssttt yet! Anyway: my examples. In Series 2 when Lister tells the Cat how many times Rimmer has had sex I'm still not sure if the Cat's reaction of "THAT MANY!?" is supposed to be a sarcastic "OMG, that's it?" type of exclamation or a "OMG? You mean Rimmer has actually HAD sex once?" type of genuine reaction! Maybe the beauty of it is it works both ways, but in my head I just wish it was clearer. I STILL don't know why Quail gets a laugh when Kryten lists some famous scientists who formerly made up Legion. Is it that the first two are real and Quail is a made up future scientist? I guess I just don't know enough about science, real or fictional! I still don't know if Bony Butts our move lets was written that way or Craig messed up the line. Lets move our Butts Bony doesn't work when you reverse the sentence. I still don't understand why being reverted to a childhood version of yourself makes you look like a Vimto? I think that's enough for one sitting. Waffled on long enough and I've not understood enough to make me appear as intelligent as a series 6 Red Dwarf writer trying to come up with new material for Holly. (*still bitter*) So like them I'm going to give up now. Please, join me in sharing your Red Dwarf moments that just go over your head!
