They say that you should never discuss religion in good company. Fortunately, our company is appalling to keep. Therefore, in this edition of our continuing celebration of Red Dwarf’s silver anniversary, The Garbage Podcast mark the 25th anniversary of the initial airing of Waiting for God by discussing religion’s role in the show in our latest commentary for the episode. With the first series passing the half way mark, Rob and Doug finally start to deal with the issue of what happened to the cat race, only to then never return to it again.
Was this a smart move? Has the attitude to religion in the show changed over the years? And has Andrew managed to make the most boring point in the history of this podcast as he believes? Few of these questions will be answered as Alex, James and Andrew take a look at what is perhaps Series I’s most maligned episode.
