Sci-fi 50: David Lister

Aug. 01, 2012 | 11:30 a.m.

David Lister, "Red Dwarf" (1988): Lazy, unkempt and reeking of lager, David Lister is going nowhere in life before he signs up for a menial job aboard a mining ship called the Red Dwarf. The gig takes a bit longer than expected though; after a radiation leak, Lister is left in stasis -- for 3 million years. He awakens as the last human (by all appearances) and what follows is some of the U.K.'s most subversive, unsettling and riotously funny cosmic misadventures. (BBC)
