    In your opinion of course. You really need to start using that disclaimer if you want to start telling others to do it! :x

    Ofcourse it's just my opinion, I never said it wasn't. I don't think you got the point of what I said in the other topic because I never said anyone else's opinions here was "wrong"......like how I will never say yours is wrong even if I don't agree.

    I do get the point of what you said. Hence me using the example I did, you said The whole "I can't, I'm too scared. Look at my hands" scene......that was just awful. This firm statement precludes any other point of view or opinion of that scene, you said it "was just awful". The finality of what you said implies that other opinions are wrong. FACT.

    I don't see how, The whole "I can't, I'm too scared. Look at my hands" scene......that was just awful. is an opinion, MY OPINION.....nothing more, just as I hope we get to see the "Too scared" BtE version of Rimmer is Ori's opinion, or just how Red Dwarf has NEVER been as good as it was since the departure of Rob Grant. :x is yours. These are our own view points on the show and they are what is right to us as individuals, as such no one can be truly wrong. I never said they were......it doesn't mean that scene doesn't make me cringe at the very thought of it.

    Compare it to the backwards scene of him hiding under the table. Different league.

    I think the very worst rimmer scene was the magic carpet in series 7 with the hamster wheel. Cringe or what

    I would say the 3 worst Rimmer scenes are the formentioned Diving Bell scene in BTE, him hitting himself in the nads with a hammer in Back in the Red Part 2 and his theory that T-rex's are grumpy because their arms are too short to pleasure themselves in Pete Part 2. Honestly while the magic carpet scene hardly goes on my list of best Rimmer scenes it never bugged me ANYWHERE as much as what I listed up there.

    I never interpreted Rimmer's line this way previously but looking at it again, you're probably right. :shock:

    Series 8 is truly the series that get's worse the more you watch it!

    I honestly never made the connection to masturbation. I just thought it was another example of the rather overplayed jokes in Red Dwarf 8 where they often seemed to go like this:

    Person A: Set-up
    Person B: punchline
    Person C: unnecessary continuation of punchline

    I guess I just interpreted Rimmer's mime as a T-rex trying to pick something up and being frustrated by its small arms.
