I was about 8 years old when I caught a glimpse of Kryten while my parents were watching it and I was absolutely terrified, no idea what episode it was. I had nightmares about him for weeks after, I think that encounter has given me my fear of Androids & Robot type things now! A few years later I found a video round my Aunts, of Stais Leak, I took it home and was hooked! Don't know if it was the lack of Kryten in series 2 that changed my views of it, or the fact I was a bit older, but I have been hooked ever since! And strangely enough, Kryten is one of my favourite characters, after Lister, I reckon it's because he's so soft and such a big girls blouse that he doesn't freak me out like other Androids.
