Red Dwarf X – Trojan

The Boys Are Back!

Trojan, the first episode of Red Dwarf’s tenth season, aired last Thursday, and it’s safe to say that the boy’s are back on form. The humor is back at the levels of the first few seasons, the chemistry is perfect. It’s as though they’ve never been away.

If you haven’t caught it yet, you can go and watch it HERE until the 11th, which is when the next episode will become available.

For those poor, unfortunate, smeghe souls among you who have no idea what I am talking about; I think that Holly’s opening message from the second episode of season one (Future Echoessummarises the show quite nicely:

HOLLY (The ship’s  computer; appearing as a hologram, in space) – 

“This is an SOS distress call from the mining ship Red Dwarf. The crew are dead, killed by a radiation leak. The only survivors were Dave Lister, who was in suspended animation during the disaster, and his pregnant cat, who was safely sealed in the hold. Revived three million years later, Lister’s only companions are a life form who evolved from his cat, and Arnold Rimmer, a hologram simulation of one of the dead crew.”

(Holly disappears, briefly, before floating up from the bottom of the screen) –

“I am Holly, the ship’s computer, with an IQ of 6000. The same IQ as 6000 PE teachers.”


Red Dwarf is a British Sci-fi, Comedy institution. If you’re not familiar with it, you should definitely do yourself a favor and pay the official site a visit. Having grown up watching the series as a child & teenager, and now watching it with my wife; I am far too biased to ever give you an impartial review of the new series. It would be like asking a browncoat to detail all of Firefly‘s faults (**IT HAS NONE!**). So, for the sake of impartiality, and your sense of humor, GO AND WATCH, TROJAN!
