    Could be many reasons why some people go gaga over "GOTA" . My guess would be some people really like westerns and miss them being on very much. I on the other hand could care less about westerns but yeah at least this was a fun scifi eps but not one of my favorite that I would hold near and dear to my heart.

    I like gunmen and also really like quarantine, but neither are my favourites. But then I watched quarantine that much as a kid that I think I've worn it out lol.

    I tend to watch back serie's in cronological order usualy,but on the ocasions when i do just watch individual ep's Quarantine is right at the top of the list, as is beyond a joke,Back in the red xtended (what?...i'm being serious), polymorph and any from series 2. i like Gunmen too, but i think there are other eps more deserving of an award

    In my opinion Tikka to ride deserved some form of award.

    Tikka is one episode I'm becoming increasingly fond of, but the ending is pretty poor.

    The episode contains one of my favourite visual gags when Lister lifts up the top of Kryten's head and props it up like a car bonnet.

    Yes, agreed, just brilliant. I couldn't think of a better way to enforce my post, your hand picture was pretty darn on the spot there [applauses] and I sincerely mean that! Cracked me up when I read what people had posted. I have been out all day and only just gotten on the internet so you have made a great end to my day!8)

    Location, Location is a TV show about houses.
    GOTA is my personal favourite from Series VI. The episode I think is the funniest is Kryten from Series II.

    However my own particular pick of the whole bunch is Demons & Angels from Series V, which is barely mentioned anywhere really! I just love the whole premise of the show and some of the performances, especially Craig Charles as the Low Lister (is that really his voice???), are superb.

    But like they say, there's no accounting for taste.

    Oh, and GOTA won the Emmy because it was the best international comedy show of the year 1993. Simple as. Can you think of a sitcom from 1993 that was funnier?

    GOTA is a great episode not the best from series 6. In my eyes nothing beats Legion with the scene at the dinner table then Kryten and Rimmer trying to knock him out!

    oh, and the puppet porn is GENIUS :-D
