    Final tally here and its changed quite a bit with the last two episodes of XII. Original :
    Revised :
    Skipper
    M-Corp
    Officer Rimmer
    Samara
    Can of Worms
    Krysis

    I was surprised M-Corp and Skipper were both as superb as they were, easily knocking it out of the ballpark for me. Two of the better episodes of Red Dwarf period if I may be so bold. My opinion of course.

    lol, I notice that in my "ideal" season there's 2 from XII and 4 from XI. Yet I think overall XII is the better season :nod:?!? I do though :redface: , XII is better.

    As remarked in another thread, I think it's because XI has more consistency. (I.e. most episodes are liked, if some more than others, as always.) I think XII is more variable as a whole, but the good stuff is VERY good, up there with the best of XI, possibly even beating them*. And the two episodes at the top of your list are probably the two best episodes in XII, by many peoples' opinion.

    *I find it difficult to judge myself, (which is why I haven't made a list) since I like different episodes in different ways, but from a comedy perspective, I think those two episodes of XII beat those of XI.

    I'm personally delighted we have had two series to be honest as really - although 6 of them have stood out - all the episodes apart from Can of Worms I would rate 8/10 or above.
