    What is your least funny Red Dwarf moment where you sat there and thought; “Why the hell are the audience laughing”?!

    For me, two stand out;

    1. The baby skutters in parallel universe. Not even vaguely funny. Deserved to be cut from the re-mastered eps.

    2. The bit where Kryten is having his driving test and switches on the windscreen wipers. Oh the hilarity....
    You can also tell from the re-mastered ep that they dubbed the original with laughter cos clearly even the audience found this unfunny.

    Now tell me yours...

    For me it was Holly's Rat Arsed joke in Back in the Red. I could see it coming a mile off, the joke just wasn't funny and Lovett's delivery was IMO lacking too.

    Ouroboros, when Kochanski puts the cat into disintegrator. It's fake laughter, otherwise I'd know you English are really weird people - Why do you laugh killing animals?

    BTW
    BBC haven't delivered laugh tracks for XI & XII, so they're gonna be broadcast in the Czech Republic with different laughter.

    Sitcom audiences will laugh at anything of course. Even the relativity gag from season VIII gets a laugh.

    I always get annoyed by the big laugh that Lister's line "The sausages are done" gets in Thanks For The Memory. It's not even a proper joke. Why do they find it so amusing? Also, several moments in Kryten where the hyped-up audience bursts into a round of applause at mediocre moments. Probably the worst example being when Kryten sings the Androids theme tune.

    He sings it? I thought he's just watching and the audience is laughing.

    And I totally agree with you on than "sausages" line. I've always found strange, why are they laughing.

    He does sing it later on. And does dance moves.

    But everyone is aware you don’t like that episode @Bluey!! Try being more original for once :-S

    Oh, this. The audience was also laughing, when he was just watching the soap.

    The audience gave a good reaction when Androids' theme and closing titles were playing because they were a funny parody of Australian soap opera Neighbours, which was very popular in England at the time.

    I honestly thought that bit all worked surprisingly well.

    It was kinda stupid joke, but it was funny.
