Shana and I are back after a couple of weeks away from podcasting together to chat about Red Dwarf: Me2. I want to mostly avoid talking about the relationship between the two Rimmers (mostly because it’s covered in much more depth in Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers) but there’s plenty of meat in this episode besides. As the title implies, we mostly look at the gazpacho soup incident as a Rosebud-like lens through which to view Rimmer’s life, or at least his conception of it. What is really important to Rimmer, and how does that inform how we see him? Also, we chat about interstellar wars fought over electric bills and what is probably Danny John-Jules’ greatest performance to date.
