    Rewatched all XI for the 3rd time over three day. One of the episodes I remembered different from when I watched it on TV and now wishing I didn't deleted my recordings when I got my blurays.

    You should start an [RDXI] thread about remembering shows differently from when they were broadcast or when you first watched them. I'm sure I'd have a couple things to add to that.

    And so begins my rewatch of season 12, and this is one episode I was dreading because I knew I didn't like it much when I first watched it in 2017. So has my opinion of the episode improved? No, in fact I liked it even less than I did back then. I can't say I'm enthusiastic about rewatching the next episode either.

    It wasn't a lie. It was a true statement.

    Interesting. The rewatch had opposite effect on me. I hadn't liked it at first, but when I rewatched it, I realized, it had lot of iconic moments for the show as whole, such as Lister jamming with Hitler, the escape scenes. This things make the episode good and memorable, but the story itself is weak.

    The only part I liked was when the four of them woke up after being drugged. It was a funny and exciting few moments. The rest of the episode I found very weak.

    Parts of this seemed rushed and the idea of Cat, Kryten and Rimmer becoming mechanoids was underexplored. A bit better than Cured but still a below-average episode.

    Next episode is Timewave, which is currently the only Red Dwarf episode I've seen only once. I remember liking it at the time and being surprised to see all the negativity towards it, so it's going to be interesting to see if my opinion has changed.

    Timewave

    And another episode from season 12 goes down in my opinion after a rewatch. There's something about seeing new episodes that causes me to overrate them - perhaps the excitement of watching some new Dwarf.

    This is a pretty dumb episode and much of the humour seems to belong in season 8. I hope the second half of this season stands up to a rewatch better than the first.

    Again, not as good as I remembered, but still a worthwhile episode and certainly the best of the season so far. Overall, despite several good moments, I mostly spent the episode wishing the writing was as good as that in I-VI.

    Unlike the previous episodes this season, this one stood up pretty well when I rewatched it. Not a very funny episode, but there's a nice concept behind it.

    Yeah, that line really stood out as terrible when I heard it again.
