    Why, when was the last time we did something like this on the board? In 11 years of being here, I don't recall anything similar.

    There have been plenty of the favourites/least favourites in both episodes and series, rating the eps of an individual series or rating the series themselves into some order, and variations upon these scattered through the years. I vaguely recall one that asked people to rate all 55 episodes into an order of favourites at one point. The variations are there, just not in this specific format. Basically it depends on how "similar" you want to look as to what you'll find.

    Exactly, I don't object to the the TC having this thread and I don't think I presented myself as such. I just thought it could have been better explained and initially thought he was asking us to do something slightly more original than another 'rank your favourites' thread (which I suppose he is by at least adding up a cumulative total).

    Of course, a certain person with an undiagnosed personality disorder had to come snipping in, failing to understand why anyone might see ambiguity in the wording.

    I assume you are referring to me? Pathetic, almost as pathetic as you not understanding this simple thread premise.:x

    I wonder what would happen to simulant37 if we removed that smiley for a day.

    He'd have better internal plumbing?

    This thread's ground to a halt.

    Anybody else going to add their ratings?

    Mrs Y half-promised to add hers. There's also a large number of other regulars who have yet to take part as well as a lot of semi-regulars.

    I have to say Bluebell, I don't think I've ever seen you quite this involved and seemingly excited about anything, with the obvious exception of the prospect of a chicken tikka masala, served with a glass of Pepsi, and a Toblerone for dessert. You've got some real enthusiasm for this little project.

    This thing is, I actually had the exact same idea of getting everyone to rate all the episodes in the run up to series X. I just lacked the confidence to do it, fearing that nobody would take part. So I was very happy when Presuming Ken ended up doing it instead.

    It is called an opinion. Some people have differing opinions. I didn't have a go at you when you gave a load of "0"s to episodes I like.

    And again with the aggressiveness, especially to somebody who is a new poster to the forum. Incredibly inappropriate.

    Ah, it's okay. I'm a big boy, I'll take it on the chin.

    (I toyed between 6/7 for The End. I originally gave BTE 7 but I bumped it up to 8 to pee off haters of it).
