    Officer Rimmer. That episode would make my top 5 of all time

    Tikka To Ride but I almost feel like that's cheating since it's one episode on from the classic era.

    Apart from that I'd say

    Fathers and Suns
    Give And Take
    Trojan
    Samsara

    My favourites of the Dave era are:

    Entangled
    Give And Take
    Officer Rimmer
    M-Corp
    Skipper

    Out of all those, M-Corp is my favourite.

    I dunno while Cassandra is the only not terrible episode of series 8, I think it's still a very average episode of Red Dwarf as a whole. The prison stuff is still really weak, and that "become a dog" bit by Holly was just painfully unfunny. Still it's the only episode in that whole series that actually felt like Red Dwarf.

    As for what I think is the best.......either Give and Take or Mechocracy, I still haven't decided which of those 2 I liked best. I feel those 2 episodes were not only highlights of the Dave era, but are good enough to be classics during the show's golden years!

    Agreed here. Though I might have to replace Mechocracy with M-Corp. Skipper is a close one for me too. Though Mechocracy has one of my favourite RD gags of all time -- Kryten manipulating Rimmer.

    Give and Take. It was Red Dwarf through and through for me. It checked every box. It was as if Doug had found a lost script from the past.
     
    UltraDevotee and SweatyChimpBoy like this.

    M-Corp
    Skipper
    Mechocracy
    Officer Rimmer
    Give & Take
    Krysis

    I feel like I could watch these episodes over and over again and not get bored - also, and quite importantly, I don't think there are many (any?) slightly cringey moments or lines in these. X definitely suffered from that a bit. OK it's early days with the XII episodes, but they're giving me such a warm fuzzy glow at the moment!

    Does seem a trend towards XI and XII though. Just about everyone's list is heavy with these two series. With just cause I would say.

    Fair enough. I am rather fond of X though.
