    It could be an interesting episode apparently its the guest's favorite episode don't know how anybody could rate Krytie TV as one of their favorite shows but there you go

    To be fair Cassandra feels out of place in 8: the Prison setting pretty much vanishes after 5 mins or so to be replaced with classic Dwarf exploring a derelict.
    Even the Series 8 touches (the canaries stuff particularly Killcrazy!) are funny.

    But that's just IMO.

    It's good to hear they enjoyed Cassandra. I don't mind Krytie TV myself, but it's certainly not of one my favourite ep's (even of series 8). I have a feeling they're not going to be too keen it, especially Angela. I could of course be wrong though.

    As a side note, Heath's second prediction about Krytie TV was interesting, wasn't it? Not quite as spot on as they've been in the past, but pretty close I'd say. :-)

    The guest was pretty cool though. I liked him. Nice guy, handsome, witty, charming. Knows his Dwarf.
    Hope he comes back soon.

    Who is this codename_47 person?

    I'm pretty fond of Krytie TV myself, but I've noticed it tends to do badly in fan polls. It cam 50th out of 56 in our poll.

    Do you mean series X? Well, Lemons and Dear Dave have certainly gone up in my estimation. I'm still not all that fond of Trojan and The Beginning though. I'll have to see if my opinion changes next time I watch them.

    *pulls skutter v-signs*

    Yeah, it was I! Bwa ha.....ugh, how cliched

    Anyway, with the later series as much as they're maligned I know that even if the overriding plot isn't great (like Krytie TV) there are still enough jokes that make me really laugh (like Krytie TV) that you can just imagine the bad episodes as some sort of sketch show with our characters saying funny things in somewhat funny situations and switch your brain off from how they get from sketch to sketch :-p
    (Think I actually said this on the podcast too so apologies for repeating)

    For me, Dwarf was always a comedy first, sci-fi second (though the combination of my two favourite things helps it become my overall favourite thing) and it's important to note it's a show that was shown at 9pm on Fridays with all the other comedies instead of 6:45pm with all the other sci-fi shows.
    Series 7 tends to forget what comes first and for that I rate it my least favourite but even in 8, which I admit isn't great, at least it's putting the comedy first.
    The stuff with Lister and Rimmer in Krytie TV is pretty funny, it's just the kryten/kochanski stuff that brings it down.
    Any time Rimmer is forced to grudgingly be on Lister's side is pretty hilarious in RD and the payoff in the final scene is amazing.

    The next one is due tonight. I'm looking forward to seeing what Heath and Angela make of this. My guess is that they'll hate all the Women's Shower Night stuff but will like most of the rest.

    So they didn't like Krytie TV much. And it seems that Heath in particular really doesn't think much of series 8 in general. Their opinion of Pete is going to be interesting to hear.
