"This is an SOS distress call from the mining ship, Red Dwarf. The crew are dead, killed by a radiation leak. The only survivors were Dave Lister, who was in suspended animation during the disaster and his pregnant cat who was safely sealed in the hold. Revived 3 million years later, Lister's only companions are: a life form who evolved from his cat and Arnold Rimmer, a hologram simulation of one of the dead crew. I am Holly, the ship's computer, with an IQ of 6000, the same IQ as 6000 P.E. teachers"
To my count, only the second successful comedy show to combine science fiction and comedy. (After The Hitch Hikers Guide) The show follows the very amusing premise of the last human being alive being a space bum. Dave Lister and the crew of Red Dwarf, Three million years from earth desperately try to find there way back to home. There have been some brilliant stories since the show began back in 1987, but not everybody needs to know how Lister cam open beer bottles with his anus.
