Red Dwarf
Red Dwarf

Science fiction comedy on the lowest of low budgets, Red Dwarf began life as the demented ramblings of Rob Grant and Doug Naylor and ended its nine series run as a cult phenomenon with a huge fan following. Red Dwarf was the story of Lister (Craig Charles), the last human being alive, Rimmer (Chris Barrie), a hologram of his dead bunk mate and a creature who evolved from the ship's cat (Danny John Jules), all of whom are stuck on a large mining vessel three million years in the future. It was an entirely off-the-wall comedy but with jokes that ranged from the inspired (Lister appearing behind Hitler at Nuremburg and mocking his genital shortcomings) to the utterly bizarre (the crew being stalked by a curry monster) Red Dwarf was an unapologetically demented comedy. It hasn't aged all that well given that early episodes were made for roughly the same price as a bag of crisps, but the series remains one of the BBC's all-time comedy greats.

Best Episode
Quarantine (Series 5, Episode 4). Rimmer is infected by a holo-virus and imprisons the crew. "Mr Flibble is very cross."
