Personal Quotes (2)

I thought the first series of Red Dwarf (1988) was pure sitcom, it had some great jokes in it. This whole sci-fi fantasy phenomenon has gone crazy, although I'm not complaining. It's an escape for people because the world is rubbish right now.
No man is an island, except when he's having a bath.
