Dear Dave is one of my faves from X. But, I also love BTE, so...
In X, I enjoy 'Lemons' and 'The Beginning' the least. The other episodes I enjoy a great deal. Most of the episodes in XI, from the perspective of my own personal enjoyment, fit between my two least favourite X episodes and the other four X episodes. If that makes sense. So I guess I prefer series X, but my enjoyment of XI is more consistent through the series.
The "what an absolute slag" line is one of the few that actually gets a laugh out of me on Dear Dave.
It seems a bit out of place and I think some people didn't like it. But I think it was appropriate under the circumstances. I get the same feeling from 'Kryten' when Lister uses the word 'ar@*hole'.
I think that's all the series.
I'll admit my fondness for X is mostly superficial: I love the way it looks. The set, the cast (Kryten's nose aside; I think Rimmer circa-X is the best he's looked since series V), the brightness of it all... Very pleasing on the eye, well my eye anyway!
That said, XI still contains my favourite episode of the Dave era thus far, Officer Rimmer. I love that episode...
X was bad because look old. Ew. Not people looking their age. This is appalling. I am like twelve or something, but I watched red dwarf when it first came out and they weren't as old. What happened to them?
