    I didn't attack your opinion. You attacked somebody else's in an aggressive manner.

    I never said you did.
    & the key phrase "somebody else's" opinion. They can fight their own battles. Not sure why u are doing it on their (unrequested) behalf. :x:?

    Don't start another tedious argument in this thread, simulant.

    Also, Queeg continues to score well. What is it about this episode that everyone except me seems to love?

    While it's not my all time favourite I think it's certainly up there, the reason for that I feel it that while the story was really straight forward the humour was really tight and timing just seemed to really click. For what it set out to do it did it to it's fullest.

    For me, Queeg is the only episode of Norman's Holly dedicated to him in such a way. It has some of his best lines, it's extremely funny, very clever, full of surprises and wonderful to watch. It's got depth and heart, too, and deepens the relationship between the Holly and the others, and for the first time, it shows how important Holly is and makes him a real character in the show. I think it's the best Holly episode, and for me, deserves high praise for being such a landmark episode.

    I didn't feel I should rate VII, VIII, or BTE - even though I have watched all episodes from series 7 and 8 ~2/3 times, and BTE 4 times, I feel that it would distort the ratings too much as I can honestly say I didn't enjoy most of the eps even slightly.

    It's asking for an honest opinion, so if your honest opinion is that they deserve a 0, 1 or 2 at best, give it as such. Doesn't matter if it might distort the ratings so long as you are voting that way honestly, and you truly feel that is all they deserve.

    I think you should still add them. We want a good reflection of the fans' tastes, and one person's ratings won't distort things too much.

    Daniel appears to be taking a bit of an interest in this thread. I wonder if he's going to change his mind at some point and take part.

    All right, I'll add them here:

    Tikka to Ride - 1
    Stoke me a Clipper - 1
    Ouroboros - 0
    Duct Soup - 0
    Blue - 1
    Beyond a Joke - 0
    Epideme - 1
    Nanarchy - 0

    Back in the Red - 0
    Cassandra - 2
    Krytie TV - 0
    Pete - 0
    Only The Good? - 1

    Back to Earth - 1

    I think these are as honest as I can be...

    More people should post their ratings, this thread has potential!

    However, and there's absolutely nothing we can do about this so don't take this as a dig or aggression, I don't feel this will be a brilliant representation of RD's viewers; the people who post in this thread or indeed sign up to this forum are more likely to be more "hardcore" RD fans, as opposed to the more casual viewers who would describe themselves as fans, make up a much larger proportion of RD viewers, and may enjoy the more slapstick / casual humour in the later series while not enjoying the earlier series with their lower production values etc.

    I may float about it a bit, as I do a number of threads in this part of the forum, but I'm not taking huge interest in the actual figures. In fact, I'm not sure I've actually looked through a single person's entire list at any point. The actual crux remains "not my thing" so it's very unlikely I'll change my mind, I'm afraid.

    No, because they're not considered canonical.

    Good to see all the people getting involved. Keep 'em coming. Voting closes 2 weeks tomorrow :-)

    Glad you're taking such interest, Bluey. And to be fair, I did post this thread after i'd come in from a night out a bit merry. Otherwise i'd have had the same doubts as you over whether to post it or not :-)

    Also if you have any thoughts on using the info provided in a different way than me then go right ahead. I'll just be doing average scores really, so anything you want to add to make it even more interesting would be good :-)

    I can't really think of doing anything else with the scores apart from taking the average. I'm just looking forward to seeing the final results.

    Just remember that a few episodes from series 8 need to be divided by a smaller number than the others because simulant37 failed to give ratings to them.

    No worries. I thought that as you thought of the votes thing too you might have also had a different way to do it. I figured that once I post the results then some posters might point out there are better ways to do it (i'm not necessarily referring to you there, just anyone who knows more about these things than I).

    All taken care of :-)
