Exactly my thoughts. Series 1-6 is comedy gold. Series 7 is worth it purely for the nazi ace rimmer sequence and the kennedy assasination episode.
Series 8 is awful in every single way. The only half decent episode is the future predicting computer one.
The Dave episodes never happened. NEVER HAPPENED!
They ruined the whole premise of the show by bringing Kochanski in and getting rid of Rimmer. The whole point was that he was stuck with the one person he wanted to be with the least, then they change it so he's stuck woth the one person he wanted to be with the most... good going
Also a personal pet peeve is i hate it when they change actors/actresses who play characters in a show so Kochanski always seemed.. wrong.
And bringing back the ship and everything... ugh. I only watched the first Dave episode and i did not laugh, giggle or titter.
I'm a huge fan - its my favourite programme ever! I have them all on DVD and watch them all the time.
One of my favourite moments is actually really subtle. Its in 'The Inquisitor' when Kryten learns hes going to die, and they've seen versions of Rimmer and The Cat killed, and Kryten just turns around to Lister as hes trying to fix the matter transporter and says 'All in all...todays been a bit of a BUMMER hasn't it sir?'
