I don't get BBC.  I'm American.  I did like The Red And Green show on PBS, though.

I've seen a few episodes on Youtube and pretty much enjoyed it. Ah, the England is such a silly and whimsicial island.

Americans have forgotten how to laugh at the pointless and stupid.

Like the show, love the novels.  And I'm definitely a Backwards man, not a Last Human one.

It's a solid genre.  I got an email from a friend that actually prompted me to post this topic.  I'll copy and paste it, it fairly well sums up the show.

"It seemed with Red Dwarf that there would be one great episode, one feh episode and the rest average for every series.  One of the two male Holly post-Kryton series would probably be best.  The Holographic virus episode was awesome...Rimmer's first in-drag moment.  Special.  That's up there with 'Kate...short for Bob.' "

That last bit is a reference to Rowan Atkinson's Black Adder, by the way.  Another good BBC show to catch if you haven't already.  AND, as if Rowan Atkinson isn't good enough, I believe the third series also stars Hugh Laurie, better known as Dr. House.  I honestly can't say I'm a fan of House, but knowing he plays a tightass American doctor after his sniveling characters in Black Adder puts a smile on my face.
