    Rename an episode to what you think it should be called. For example I think "Rimmerworld" should be called "Tex Rimmerworld" and "Officer Rimmer" Should be called "Officer Tex Rimmer".

    Discuss.

    I always thought The Last Day was a poor name for an episode title. Hudzen would have been a better choice perhaps, but really the episode is centred around Kryten with Hudzen only making a proper appearance in the last few minutes. That said, he does steal the show in an otherwise unmemorable episode, but is his role in it big enough to justify having it named after him?

    Meltdown is another poor title. Waxworld is a much better and much more obvious choice - to the extent that I've noticed Dwarfers are always mistakenly calling it that.

    It's a shame ME2 wasn't named Gazpacho Soup considering how iconic that foodstuff has now become in Dwarf's history.

    Emohawk: Polymorph II should have just been called Emohawk. Adding the Polymorph II bit makes the title look stupid.

    Tikka to Ride should be named something Kennedy related and Duct Soup is another very stupid title.

    Especially since Can of Worms didn't have Polymorph III at the end.

    I would have called the three episodes Polymorph, Polymorphs, and Polymorph III. And I would have done a story for RD XII called Polymorph Resurrection.

    We could have more consistency in naming episodes after the antagonist(s). We have Queeg, Legion, Psirens, Epideme and Cassandra, so why not Pree and Asclepius?

    I think Stoke Me a Clipper should at least be Smoke Me a Kipper. The current title isn't really a functioning pun.

    Twentica is arguably the worst title of the whole run. I'm assuming it's a portmanteau of Twenties and America, but why, lol. I'm struggling to think of a good name, but even Exponoids would be better than Twentica.

    That would be giving too much away though. I think Lemons works well as a title. It's short, punchy and vague.

    That title makes me think of Stargate since its a Stargate episode title.

    I'd rename The Last Day to Shutdown to fit in with the third season's one word title structure better.
