    Well I gave Back in the Red '0', so that counts. . .

    To be honest I didn't articulate my post very well. At all.

    I thought you'd not voted on the other series 8 eps because you thought they didn't deserve a vote. But quoting Back in the Red for this was ambiguous at least.

    But it turns out you've not seen the eps you didn't vote on so not voting at all was right :-)

    OK.

    I haven't watched them, well seen a few clips & bits here & there. As such its not fair to give them a score.

    I am guessing that this is out of 10? lol

    How can you score Thanks for the memory with a 6? It is one of the best episodes written. A definate 8 or 9

    One of the reasons I haven't voted is that I don't think it's clear what the TC is asking us to vote on. What does he mean by favourite "story". Are we simply voting on which episode we enjoyed the most or are we supposed to be judging them based on the story they told?

    For example, Out of Time is a very enjoyable episode but as a story its extremely patchy.
    Tikka to Ride is a fun episode (once it gets going) but the storytelling has more holes than a pair of Lister's old socks!

    Are you going to take part or just criticise other people's scores?

    I think he's using the word 'story' rather than 'episode' because of the multi-parters. For example, Back In The Red is three episodes but a single story, and it's the whole thing, rather than the individual episodes, that we are giving a rating to.

    Jeez, just vote them out of 10. However you want. It's not exactly offical or anything!

    14 others have managed it so far...

    Strangely, if you ask me my favourite series, it doesn't reflect these scores at all...

    Still think there's an unfair bias? ;-)

    People are just voting how they feel. And post-VI Dwarf is doing rather well of late ;-)

    Call me crazy, but I thought the whole point of this was to judge opinion. If my opinion is different to your opinion, it doesn't become automatically less valid. Dolt.

    Also, it's "definite" :-)

    Queeg appears to be doing very well so far, getting lots of 10s and 9s. I had no idea it was so popular.

    More fool me for thinking that perhaps someone was doing something original and interesting instead of yet another "rate the episodes" thread.
