    You did better than I did - Loved BA (and still enjoy watching Tony Robinson's documentaries - the juxtaposition is priceless) but never made it past the previews for the Young Ones.

    Eh, I meant Space Balls in the sense that it did actually have a plot and followed some plot logic. RD throws logic out and the plot along with it - a lot like early silent comedies that really have a reality all their own.

    To be honest, I didn't care for RD the first few times I saw it. Oddly, I started to like Rimmer - and got lucky and hit the rerun cycle close to the beginning so it made a little more sense (until it threw continuity out with logic - but by then, I didn't care.)

Like, if you had watched it when it first aired (or near to) the humor was funny then, but not so much today, or maybe I just don't get that sort of humor.
    You just lack a sense of humor.
