Synopsis

Lister finds himself missing Rimmer so much he starts dreaming about kissing him. Kryten takes matters into his own hands by creating virtual ride, The Rimmer Experience, based on Rimmer's diaries, providing Lister with a permanent cure. The Rimmer Experience is a sequence from the UK science fiction comedy series Red Dwarf, appearing in the fifth episode of the seventh series, Blue. Spoiler warning: The Rimmer Experience is akin to a roller-coaster ride. ...


Trivia

  • The working title of this episode was "Heartache".
  • The filming of the The Rimmer Experience scene was said to be hellish. It took nearly a full day, but most of the cast had whiplash from being banged about in the carriage within five minutes. The cast referred to this as "Black Wednesday".
  • "The Kiss" again came about because Chris Barrie and Craig Charles were complaining about the lack of kissing scenes, so the writers fixed them up with each other.
  • Charles and Barrie did really kiss for that scene. Apparently, they were so lost in this, they overheard the director yelling cut and continued to kiss for quite a while (seen on the special features DVD)
  • During the Rimmer Experience, three versions of Rimmer from Seasons 3 - 7 are shown. The version of Rimmer from Seasons 1 and 2 is not shown.
  • In one of Lister's flashbacks he tells Kryten, Lister and Rimmer are scrounging through lockers. Lister opens a locker because Rimmer, being a hologram, probably can't do it. If this had taken place before Kryten came on the ship (even though the only indication was that Lister was telling the story to Kryten), Rimmer should have been dressed in gray and had the thick "H" on his head.
  • This is Rimmer's last appearance as a hologram. His next appearance is as a human in Season VIII's Back in the Red: Part I
