    Red Dwarf, Biblical literalism and Silicon Heaven

    Post  UKSteve on April 6th 2014, 4:44 pm

    I know there are a few folks on here with a passing familiarity with Red Dwarf, so for those people, I just reviewed the episode 'The Last Day' over on my blog.

    That's the episode where Kryten is due to be replaced, and has a bunch of religious references from Rimmer's family (the Seventh Day Advent Hoppists), Lister apparently being a pantheist (but not a frying pantheist), and of course Kryten taking solace in the existence of Silicon Heaven.

    So there's an open invitation to trot over to http://stevetrower.com/re-dwarf-the-last-day/ if you fancy discussing the big theological matters raised by the episode - or we can just do that here, of course Smile

    Ah, Red Dwarf... yes, I loved that series!
    But it has been so long since I've seen it on the tele. Is it even still on?

    Anyway, although I don't remember this specific episode, your review is awesome! It captures the typical Red Dwarf atmosphere, and brings back fond memories Smile
