    THIS THREAD IS FOR DISCUSSION VOTES ON OTHER THREAD

    Right i see there is more than enough members to get a true result on this

    what i propose is this ,each member posts once only on this thread (anything else is off topic and should be deleted)

    of the 52 episodes(taking extended scenes into account) each member lists his/her top 6 episodes of Red Dwarf Which Score as follows

    1st 6 pts
    2nd 5pts
    3rd 4 pts
    4th 3 pts
    5th 2 pts
    6th 1pt

    also lists what he/she considers the worst which scores -2 pts

    i will do an excel spread sheet on this and release it on here the day before the new Back to Earth Screens on Dave

    so 2 days of voting get thinking smegheads

    not a prob m8 but why do you feel deleted scenes should not be added

    everyone has differant views on episodes that may/may not have diferant ways that rob grant or the writers wanted to try before they settled on the final production

    my way of thinking is lets use all info we have and come up with an honest assesment

    thank you for respecting and correcting the post wd bluey m8

    also you forgot to post the worst episode iyo

    Deleted scenes aren't part of the Red Dwarf canon, and it would be unfair to praise or condemn an episode for something that never appeared in the final product. Extended scenes are fine though.

    Quite right. Cut scenes were cut by the makers, they didn't want them included. Though it's later down the production process, it's essentially like judging an episode by jokes and story ideas that were rejected at the writing stage. Rob and Doug considered giving each character psi powers in Quarantine, then chose not to - so I can't include that idea in any score I give the episode.

    point taken on the deleted scenes lads fair play
    op ammended

    but no way should bitr or pete be treated as one episode they were screaned over a few weeks and i think they would command an unfair amount of votes as a unit

    same as back to earth each one must be able to stand on its on feet

    Think of it this way: if you were on a desert island and could take just one episode with you, which would it be? The answer is your #1. Next, imagine you were allowed a second episode; that's your #2. Repeat until you have your top six.

    Only ten people have replied so far, and I think we're going to need a few more contributors to get a true picture of the Fans' favourite episodes.

    Hi Andrew and, in fact, hi everyone! My first post here.

    This is a bit of a long shot I know and I hope it doesn't seem cheeky of me Andrew, but I thought I'd ask anyway. Would Back to Earth make it into your top 6 in this list? Are you allowed to comment on that?

    Nice to be here folks, looking forward to Back to Earth massively!

    Well, the rules say that I'm not allowed to include a whole multi-part story in my list! :-)

    Couldn't help but notice this thread had dropped off the end of page1, just a post to bring it back. How are the results looking, Sparks43?

    mrsmith and Aimi still haven't included a least favourite episode.

    Are you going to discount their posts or include them anyway?
