How Rapidly My Birthday Gift Became Obsolete

For my birthday, my beautiful wife gave me this:

The Complete Red Dwarf series on DVD. I watched these back when I recorded them off of KETC, the PBS station in St. Louis, when they came on after Doctor Who on Sunday nights, so when I was reminded of them for some reason or another, I put it on my Amazon wish list.

Now, the news is that this set will be incomplete very soon.

In November this year we start to record a new series of 6 episodes, presently titled Red Dwarf X. I’m not sure of the Broadcast dates but we finish recording them in early February 2012.

This rather complements the Christmas gift I received in the middle 1990s of the More Than Complete Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy before Douglas Adams was actually done milking the series.

Lesson learned: If you buy a collection of British humor marked “complete,” it is probably not.

  1. I have these practically memorized and the kids will even quote them. Been hearing about another season for YEARS… I’ll believe it when I see it.

  2. Funny thing is, I don’t think I made it much past the early part of season 1 before I moved off to Wisconsin, where it did not air, and when I came back to Missouri, either it was off the air or I was inattentive.
