red dwarf

rimmers-swimming-certificate:

So, I’ve been going through some old books looking for things I can sell, and I found a book I forgot I had, that I probably got as a present many many years ago. And it’s the best thing ever.

At first glance I thought it was a diary, and it kind of is, only the crew have filled it in themselves. Parts of it are hilarious. Parts are a little sad, like when it gets to December and all the crew draw a picture of what they want for Christmas and Lister draws the Earth.

But then there’s this, which is next level amazing…

Because yes, that is Rimmer and Lister attempting to write smut. 😂

(You should get this book if you can. You won’t regret it!)

That Brooklyn 99 remake

Turns out there’s just about to be a French-Canadian version of Brooklyn 99! Almost shot-for-shot and all.

I stumbled across tweets about this yesterday, the same day the last episode of Red Dwarf: The First Three Million Years aired and discussed the extremely ill-advised American version of Red Dwarf. You know, the one where they whitewashed everybody Last Airbender-style. (Craig Charles has some thoughts on it. Thankfully it never made it past the pilot stage.) So gah, my very first, pre-actually-watching-it reaction to this was “See America, it’s not so fun when someone else remakes your show, is it?!” But that’s probably unfair, especially since this version is whitewashed too, what with Amy and Rosa no longer being Latina. SO I would frankly prefer no more remakes or adaptions of this kind please, ever again.
