    It's a fantastic, well-written episode, and as I said while undertaking my Dwarfathon, Barrie's performance in this episode gets my vote for the best acting we've seen by anyone in any Red Dwarf episode.

    Series 1 - Future Echoes - showed the way forward.
    Series 2 - usually for me over the years Queeg or Parallel Universe but after watching all the series in order this year it is Thanks for the Memory at the moment. Brilliantly clever, character-based story and I love how it mentions the hotel being in Southport which is just up the road from where I live.
    Series 3 - usually Polymorph but after this year at the moment it is Marooned. Not too much action but such incredible Rimmer-Lister humour.
    Series 4 - Dimension Jump. Know most people on here would not rate it as the best of 4 but I absolutely love it. "Smoke me a Kipper" and leaving Rimmer behind and all. Shows Chris' versatility as well that he acts the part of a superhero sensationally too!
    Series 5 - Back to Reality. The all time greatest and funniest RD episode ever!
    Series 6 - Gunmen of the Apocalypse. How the higher budget should always be used unlike the way it was wasted in some of the 7 and 8 episodes.
    Series 7 - Tikka to Ride. Though some of the humour isn't quite up there with the Rob co-writes the timey-wimey story is just superb and if Chris had stayed for the rest of 7 this is what I would want to see more of as really it carries on from where series 6 left off. IMHO up there amongst the top 10 Red Dwarfs.
    Series 8 - Cassandra. The most like the vintage years of the 1999 run.
    BtE - N/A as I can't remember the individual parts so much as I just watch the director's cut nowadays.
    Series 10 - Fathers and Suns. Really funny and a lot of this episode I would consider to be up there with some of the best RD. Though as The Beginning has grown on me some more that runs it close. But yes for me still Fathers and Suns.

    Where you least expect
    Series 1 - Waiting for God
    Series 2 - Queeg
    Series 3 - Backwards (for the last scene of Cat in the bushes. Makes me laugh just thinking of the look on his face)
    Series 4 - Dimension Jump (c'mon now , its Ace's debut!)
    Series 5 - Back to Reality
    Series 6 - Rimmerworld
    Series 7 - Stoke Me a Clipper
    Series 8 - Cassandra
    Series 9/BTE - Part 3
    Series 10 - Trojan
    Series 11 - Officer Rimmer
    Series 12 - Skipper

    That was actually harder than anticipated for me. Especially the earlier series'.
