The crew of the Red Dwarf - the last human Lister (Craig Charles), the
after-death hologram Rimmer (Chris Barrie), the robot Kryten (Robert
Llewellyn), the cat evolved to human form Cat (Danny John-Jules) - have mislaid
the Red Dwarf, their guiant spaceship, or as Lister puts it "I just forgot
where I parked it", & in an effort to find her again, they have to
cross an asteroid belt in their shuttle, the Starbug. But as if navigating
through an asteroid belt wasn't bad enough, somewhere in there the psirens -
shapeshifting insects who like to lead men to their doom - are hiding, &
they try everything to lure our quartet into a trap ... & soon succeed, as
they cause the Starbug to crashland on an asteroid & s psiren manages to
slip aboard as Lister.
Faced with 2 Listers, the rest of the crew have just
one choice to find out who the real one is ... let him play the guitar, &
when one of the Listers plays a perfect solo, he is shot on the spot, as Lister
cannot play worth shit, only thinks himself a guitar-god.
But the psiron is
not done yet & slips away into the cargo bay where it turns into professor
Mamet (Jenny Agutter), Kryten's creator, whom Kryten must obeye blindly, even
if she orders him to orders him to step into the waste disposal unit &
press himself to a cube ...
Then to get the others seems to be child's play,
but Kryten the cube is still functional enought o jump her from above.
first couple of seasons of Red Dwarf were quite endearing, but at
one point there was all said that could have been said about a bunch of guys
who don't necessarily like each other travelling the universe, so the series
did lose a considerable amount of steam & generally became more & more
silly (but not the good kind of silly). In that light, this episode is not too
bad at all ... but it's not all that good either.
