So do I get more geek points now?

anklesnake sat me down and made me watch my first episode of Red Dwarf last night.

My word. What a...peculiar show.

Yay! Keep watching-- they get better. Did you start with Season 1 Episode 1?

Indeed I did, the better to appreciate (or so Shelly says) the full insanity of the show's premise.

You think THAT'S geeky, read the BOOKS.

Yes. She ^ gave me one herself.

The FIRST time ever? How have you evaded Red Dwarf for so long!?

Goldfishes nibbling at my toes...

I remember watching the very first night they showed that on PBS in L.A. A bit surprised you managed to avoid it until now. But I've also found out that the rest of the household isn't familiar with it, so I'm adding the first season DVD (I'm assuming there's one available) to the household netflix queue.

Can't believe you've evaded it this long!! Man, my DAUGHTER's been watching that show since she was a BABY! She can quote bits of it:

"This is mine, and this is mine, and this is mine. This is ALL mine! (except that bit right there; that's not mine)"

Damn, now I've got that theme song running through my head...

(I didn't realize Red Dwarf exposure was a geek check off point.)

I am so disillusioned now. Until this moment, I had aspired to be just like you. I had envisioned you as a paragon of geekdom (geekitude?).

You were like my Yoda, man! I was going to apply for an Evil Henchman position and try to work my way up the ranks in your organization! (Of course, I also planned on learning everything I could from you and then eliminating you in the most painful way possible, thus paving the way for my own meteoric rise to power... but I think that's implied.)

At least you didn't say you didn't enjoy it. That would have clinched it. I'd have thrown my lot in with your arch-nemesis and worked tirelessly for your destruction.

So, I suppose, even though you are slightly less paragonal in my eyes, you're still closer than most. Just keep watching the show, and everything will work out fine. And I'll still be honored to serve under in your evil organization.

Well, perhaps even the greatest of evil geniuses can still have some gaps in his cultural background. Thankfully, though, I'm now familiar with Red Dwarf, so my evil geniusness is now complete. And I would be honored to count you among my minions, until the day comes when I must feed you to my genetically engineered cyber-goats to prevent your foolish attempt to usurp my rightful place.

Love RD. Simply love it, says the woman whose wardrobe could rival the Cat's. Bon app!
