This British science fiction comedy was first filmed in 1988 and new episodes are on hold while they work on a theatrical version. In those twelve years, only about fifty half-hour episodes in eight series have been filmed. It's some kind of British television convention. American viewers are treated to the show thanks to PBS (public television), Some of the British-based humor is lost on Americans, but the dry wit is borderless.

Red Dwarf makes fun of the conventions of other science fiction shows and even its own past episodes. Rimmer recounts all the disasters that they have previously encountered, which is a jab at episodic television's ability to forget traumatic events by the next episode. The British humor may not be for everyone.
