When you see this, post a quote from Red Dwarf in your journal
Angels and Demons:
Evil Rimmer: 'I'm going to flog you within an inch of your life, and then I'm going to have you.'
Evil Rimmer: 'Because I'm not a very nice person.'
It was hard to pick just one
Here is an interesting quote from Chris Barrie I think the interview was during the filming of the later, less successful, series:
"If a scene was written where they explored the hate for each other as they did in scenes in the first, second and third series, things like Marooned and all that sort of stuff - fantastic dialogue, but that's a different style of show. You look at Marooned now and there was nothing like it in the sixth series, it was just all visual effects. Which I'm not saying is a bad thing, but is the way the show has developed. I'd love to do lots of scenes where it's just talking. ... I think we've got power enough to do that now. We could sit in the cockpit of Starbug for half an hour and just have dialogue, and no visual effects at all. I think that would be an interesting episode of Red Dwarf, just sitting in one place - don't even move out of the cockpit or move out of the mid-section, just one place and they just sit there and talk. They don't come across any GELF zones or any planets or any white holes or black holes or whatevers, just a nice long stretch, and it would just be dialogue. But I think Rob and Doug have got the show in a state now where the visual effects are obviously important."
We know what you are saying Chris, and I'd have liked the show to go that way too.
