    This is a challenge - and I wonder how many episodes it'll work for!

    Try to come up with a synopsis for an episode (or a sentence about it) where the first letter of each word spells the title.

    The End

    The hero emerges. Everyone now dead.

    Rimmer instantly makes multiples. Eventually Rimmer weeps over ruthless loathsome dopplegangers.

    How everyone ran episodes' names, only erasing viability? It's lovely.

    Emohawk: Polymorph II

    Evading marriage, one has argument with Kinitawowi people over Lister's yucky mate. Ordeal reveals paragon hiding in idiot.

    I know I wrote it, but that is solid gold.

    Balance of Power

    Briefly ambitious, Lister almost nails chef's exam. Obvious faux pas overthrows weirdly erotic Rimmer.

    Imagine how pleased I was, for this episode, to find a C and an E together!!

    Might as well lock this thread. This is the peak. Unless you do one for Me².

    :-)

    I liked Holoship, because of the wordplay with paradise and Nirvanah. "Rimmer weeps over ruthless loathsome dopplegangers" was another good passage.

    Thanks! I hoped we could have an acrostic for every episode, but I don't know how we handle the "²" in "Me²"?

    S-Q-U-A-R-E-D...?

    EDIT: And there's not much waggle room in "DNA", either.

    Can a mechanoid's illicit love life exist?

    Waiting for God

    We are introduced to incompetent new god. Feeling optimistic, Rimmer gets offally deluded.

    Waiting for God.

    When an interesting thing is near, ‘god’ forsakes our Rimmer. Garbage? Oh dear.
