Smoke me a kipper I’ll be back for breakfast

I’ve named this post “Smoke me a kipper I’ll be back for breakfast” because for me, the world is divided into those who know about Ace Rimmer and those who don’t. If you don’t know, then perhaps you should stop reading now. (GEEK ALERT!)

I am super excited to find a new series of Red Dwarf on the telly! Red Dwarf X (RDX) is the latest installment in the well-loved Red Dwarf series. I have fond memories of me as a spotty teenager staying up late on a Thursday night to watch it. My television reception was terrible so it took me years to realise that the set was originally made of cardboard. It looked like a spaceship to me!

I’m eternally grateful to my dear Welsh friend Ceri who when she realised I was a whole series behind in Red Dwarf (due to me living in the UK and the UK being two series ahead at the time) had me over to her house for the entire day so we could watch the videos (yeah videos!) so I could be up-to-date on what was happening in outer space. Now that’s friendship!

I’ll leave you with a little snippet from Patrick Stewart and what he thought when he first watched Red Dwarf.

So don’t call me on Wednesday nights at 9.30pm because I’ll be watching RDX on my ABC.

    “Stoke me a clipper, I’ll be back for Christmas”

    Don’t know how I feel about the latest X series, father and son aired last night, emotional me waiting for a conclusion to Arnold klopping death in the nuts stating “only the good die young” scene was ignored and now they’re back on red dwarf, no Kochansky and no other crew? I need to consult the forums to find out what happened
