Backwards may not be in my top 5 but yes I do agree it is a fantastic episode probably in the top 10 though not too many people on this forum rate it. Okay the backwards filming is a gimmick but Grant and Naylor don't half pull it off - it's just so funny. And yes the concept and the dialogue from it is superb - e.g. Likewise in the dressing room scene too..."Santa Clause what a b******!" There are simply so many great episodes that what would be a top episode of any other programme - Backwards - is only just in my top 10. But yes like I say Backwards is superb it's just there are so many incredible RD episodes. Time slides is a great too but maybe a bit lower than Backwards in my top Red Dwarfs because I feel that Out of Time and Tikka to Ride are the better time travel stories. Still an excellent and brilliantly comic episode. Series 3 when I have a run through Red Dwarf is usually my third favourite one behind 5 and 6. IMHO 3 is rather underrated on this forum though obviously other people's opinions are fair enough.
