    Sadly i feel like i could make several predictions on this series even without watching it, but purely judging by the last series alone

    *The Cat needing glasses just sounds like an excuse to have him act silly because the cat being Duane Dibley is funny.
    *The machines on strike sounds like an excuse to have Rimmer arguing and throwing authority over various machines of different nationalities while kryten reluctantly helps him by doing whatever he asks.
    *The picture showing rimmer in series 1 outfit could start in like 20 minutes of the episode since that seemed to be a thing that went on with the previous series where doug was fitting so much stuff into each episode that it felt like things were being done in sections.

    Hopefully i am wrong and Doug surprises me.

    Yes, let's judge an entire series based on an under 100 word synopsis. :roll::roll::roll::roll::roll::roll::-S:roll::roll::roll::roll::roll::roll:

    Its a case of looking at dougs writing for XI and seeing how he wrote that series and being aware that he wrote XII around the same time.

    "Cat needs glasses" also annoys me because it's got nothing to do with scifi or their situation. It's a plot-line that could be found in any garden variety people-on-a-couch sitcom. Why can't that computer-doctor from Fathers & Suns just laser them.

    Sure it's judging a synopsis, but that's all we've got to judge till October. I hope it's the 1st of October!

    It could be the reason behind their visit to one of the space stations, tough?

    I think it's for the best that series XI conveniently forgot about the Medibot's existance, I for want think he was a mistake better left in the show's past.

    Anyone who saw Cured is welcome to describe the plot in non-specific ways.

    I hope Cured was good because that sounds like one of the revealed plot descriptions that I'm optimistic about!

    That's Johnny Vegas! I don't see an H on his forehead. So I'm guessing he must be some sort of simulant?
