    The last series is the only series I turn over if I flick onto it.

    I dont like the prison setting, them constantly getting into trouble isnt funny and it just isnt as inventive.

    I could sit and watch any episode from series 1-6(ish) all day, though.

    Season 5 is good. Season 6 is Ok.

    7 and 8 arent much cop, but its harsh to dismiss 5 and 6.

    Actually, remind me what was in series 5?

    It went downhill as soon as Kochanski came back, and as soon as they started using CGI for the effects.

    She was incredibly annoying. Thankfully I think the series pretty much killed her career stone dead afterwards so we never had to see her in anything else.

    Claire Grogan as Kochanski = WIN!

    The holoship, Back to Reality, The Inquisitor..

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Red_Dwarf_episodes#Series_V_.281992.29

    All excellent episodes.

    S6 had gunmen of the apocalypse, which was probably the best episode, but they were all ok. The Starbug thing was an acquired taste, though.

    Naaah! I'm gonna have to disagree. Quality of the episodes aside, I much, much, much, preferred the new Kochanski over ye olde one. The old one wound me up no end.

    The new one spent too much time trying to out-man the men.

    I'll change my post to everything > series 5 = crap.

    Holoship and Back to Reality were quite good.

    I bet no one else here has copies of the Smegazine....

    Aww, come on, you must at least like them in relation to most other programmes, surely? Even if they are a let-down to you in relation to the other RD series.

    /is determined

    On a different note, the great thing about me buying these is that my girlfriend is really interested in watching them as she's... wait for it... only ever seen one (yes, one) episode before.

    What the hell was she doing with her life!?!?

    Other than Saturday night's giant piss-up, me and my girlfriend have spent most of the weekend watching the DVDs I ordered (I have series I-IV). Brilliant, even better than I remember them being!

    Only problem is I'm now addicted and likely to splash out and buy the rest of them in one fell swoop.

    One of the highlights so far has been Rimmer deciding alien races communicate by breaking legs :D

    Just remembered I also have a "Let's get out there and twat it!" T shirt somewhere as well, though I don't think I'd be able to wriggle into it any more.

    Anyone ever read "Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers" ?

    The novelisations (back when Grant Naylor were still writing them as a team) were brilliant. The two solo novels were dire though as was the writing for the series where Doug Naylor took over on his own.

    :D

    The Cat has so many great lines. They all do! It's something I'd not noticed when I was younger but each character is just absolutely spot on and well thought out.

    Another bit I liked: Kryten painting a picture of Rimmer sat on the toilet.

    Kryten: "I think I'm... rebelling, sir"
    Rimmer: "Rebelling? What are you rebelling against?"
    Kryten: "What d'ya got?"

    :D

    "I... I... I think that's what I'm doing..."

    So many lines.

    Funnily enough I got a text last night from a mate of mine who I've not spoken to in years text me to say that him and the mrs are expecting. After suggesting he name the kid after he me he declained, but thought about Jim Bexley Speed.

    :D

    lol that would have been brilliant! Keep pestering him to do it. At least get a Dave or Holly (if it's a girl... bit of an odd name for a son!) or something.

    I just remembered another bit (and looked it up online to get it right!):

    Newsreader: The man, Henri le Clerque, was attempting to poison the mineral spring in France, which is the source of all the world's Perrier water. Had he succeeded, experts believe the middle class would have been wiped out within three weeks

    :D

    Infinity welcomes careful drivers was brilliant, from Mr Trainee Moustache at the supermarket, to Lister pouring scalding hot coffee over his crotch to put out the ciggie butt that had fallen down there.

    I think it stands up as a novel on its own right, rather than simply being a TV cash in.

    Agreed. "Better than Life" was also good, but "The Last Human" was pretty dire.

    IIRC I read Better Than Life and the Infinity one (?) when I was abotu 12 and thought they were pretty good.

    But I was 12.

    I also read them about the same time and thought they were ace (rimmer). I'm sure I didn't have a clue what the hell was going on, though.

    They're worth re-reading. Some absolutely brilliant writing from when Grant Naylor were at their best.

    Last Human wasn't great, but Backwards (the Rob Grant sequel to Better Than Life) was a decent read. The first two ("Grant Naylor") novels are excellent. Lutz - you should re-read them because they are as good as you remember, even if they do recycle a lot of the TV show material.

    Oh, and I've definitely got a copy of the Tongue Tied CD single somewhere about. :)

    I'm distraught!

    Me and my girlfriend have, as of yesterday, finished every single episode. After watching it all back-to-back it's quite depressing when it ends.

    It also reminded me how annoyed I was the first time round that there's no more episodes after the last one in Series VIII. I want to know what happens damnit!

    Don;t know about TG. Usually a "Dave Night Of" consists of 3 episodes repeated until 3 in the morning.

    Yep I got the lot. Just being lazy. Will watch dave ad nausea tonight now.

    @fluffy yeah could be some great nights on there if they showed a few more episodes. I am convinced they only show three episodes of anything.

    QI all night would be the nuts.
