    The Beginning - for memories of going to the recording.

    Back to Reality - to give me hope.

    The Inquisitor - well, cos it's funny and I'd need a good laugh.

    Beyond a Joke - oh the irony, considering my situation!

    Quarantine - to keep me sane.

    White Hole - cos I'd want a game of pool.

    Future Echoes - I love time paradoxes.

    Twentica - because, that's why!

    Back to Reality: This one is an obvious choice for me. My all time favourite episode and contains my all time favourite scene when Lister, Rimmer, Cat and Kryten discover their true identities.
    Out of Time: Because it has a fantastic plot and features the best and most exciting ending of any episode.
    Gunmen of the Apocalypse: Another obvious choice. Just a wonderful episode, and the Wild West setting works brilliantly.
    Marooned: Twenty-odd minutes of just Rimmer and Lister talking to each other and it's fantastic. I just wish it could somehow be longer. I'd watch these two talking all day if the dialogue was of this quality.
    Duct Soup: Most hate it. For some reason I love it.
    Legion: Has it all - amusing lines, funny slapstick and a great guest appearance.
    Beyond a Joke: Yes, I'm a season 7 fan. Again, most people hate this episode, but I think it's underrated. A shame that Kochanski is never funny though.
    Twentica: My standout episode of the very good season XI. First episode since Out of Time to feel like real Red Dwarf.

    The Inquisitor
    Back to Reality
    Out of Time
    Nanarchy
    Trojan
    Episode 1 of Series XI

    All enjoyable episodes and a nice cross section of 'eras'. I know Nanarchy may surprise a few but I like the episode and I think them finding the Dwarf again is an important part of the story.
