Each to their own i guess but personally i fail to imagine an episode in series 4 where Kryten and Rimmer would run for machine president, while Rimmer blackmails the cat because he doesn't want people to know he needs glasses and lister helps kryten because he wants tv back. and so zanyness happens with so much effort being put into Rimmer and Kryten trying to get one over on each other (aswells as cat and lister for some reason). Its like lookin at an episode like justice and Doug thinking that because Kryten was trying to make a case for Rimmer to be released from jail it would be hilarious if Lister and Cat got joy from Rimmer being in jail because it meant they would finally be rid of him and wanted to make a case that Rimmer is guilty just because it would make a funny scenario to watch Lister and Kryten act like lawyers. And remove the simulant stuff and make that the whole episode. Series 4 was certainly not like that.
