    Well ZD, its a tough one. They are both very British.

    When Red Dwarf first aired I loved it. But that was some years ago. When I see re-runs nowadays, some are quite dated and not very funny at all. But it has to be said, there are still some episodes, that I can only describe as, some of the funniest things I've ever seen. There's not many shows I can remember my stomach hurting from laughing so much.

    I grew up with Dr Who, but to me, it was usually fairly average compared to what else was about at the time (Star Wars etc)

    A few years ago I started watching it again on Uk satellite. I was hooked imediately. I've since bought almost all the DVD's and I think most of them are very good. Good extras and commentaries. Nostalgia goes a long way my friend.

But if you can rent them from NetFlix or elsewhere, I'd recommend trying them.
    I love Red Dwarf! I love British comedy, so that helps. I have all the RD DVDs that have been released so far. As for Dr. Who, I haven't really seen that much of it. Strange, but true.

    Dr. Who and Red Dwarf

    Okay, I have seen both of these shows on PBS. Dr. Who was on every Saturday night at 10:00 when I was a kid. I remember it being laughably corny, but in a good way. The thing is, the prices are steep for the three-hour DVD's...are they worth it?

    As for Red Dwarf, I remember seeing it on TV about five years ago. I wasn't too amused by it, but I think it's because it had that UK humor that I often do not find funny. Is this show in its entirety worth it?

    Any comments would be appreciated.
