    To be fair ace has only been in two episodes across 11, possibly 12 series?!

    The Ace thing though - I'm thinking about Cured, does that title possibly have a double meaning? I mean, kippers are cured, and a synonym of the verb 'to cure' is 'to kipper'... unlikely, but you never know!

    You are of course correct.
    I of course stand corrected.

    Kinda disappointed by it being a later release this time around, but at least they'll get the DVD out by Christmas.

    Some of those synopsis' I feel a little iffy about, but I did find that the last series was largely a pleasant surprise so hopefully I'm just over thinking things.

    Which one are you "iffy" about (as you put it)?

    I'm kind of 'iffy' about the Cat needing glasses. It's probably a sideplot, but it's a bit of an overused sitcom staple ... Still, though, the glasses will probably not be what the boys expect them to be ...

    Are you worried he will make a spectacle of himself?

    Based on nothing but a sentence, I'm not keen on "Cat needs glasses", which seems like struggling to find something for Cat to do - we should accept Cat isn't a plot-driver. Or "Presidential election" which seems like Doug was watching the US election. I hope there's no obvious allusions to candidates.

    It was written long before that, though. But I do hope it's not a Rimmer going power crazy thing again ... Though I think I heard good things about this one ...

    American elections go on for years. If it was written in 2015 then the election was already starting, with all their primaries or whatever.

    Cat needs glasses, presidential election......and I do have some worries about Rimmer's looking for a dimention where he isn't hopeless, not because the idea couldn't work but because I fear it going the way of "Only the Good".

    That would explain why I kept wondering when the elections were, it felt like this one went on for a decade!

    I guess I'm just having pre-series anxiety, while I and a fun time with series XI and found it a huge improvement for me.....I'd be lying I didn't say the show's reputation after series 6 has been more then a bit spotty. I hope this is the second series in a row that I legitimately like.

    You won't be hearing anything from me on this matter.
