Ha, ha! Cute!
Did I ever tell you that I have a lemur clinging to my car window? Its a good thing to spot in a busy car park when I'm trying to find my car
The things I have to do!!!
1. Series VIII
2. Series VII
3. Series III
4. Series II
5. Series IV
6. Series VI
7. Series I
8. Series V
Yep, I know, Ive put the classic series 5 low down. But for exactly that reason, the eps are repeated all the time and images are in my head, so this is the order Id watch the DVDs in to enjoy them again. (if that makes sense). And 4, I just dont like series 4, apart from Justice, I can watch Justice over and over.
Best to worst:
Series 3, 4, 5 (Hard to choose between them)
Series 7 & 8
I find 1-2 very easy to stick at the very top. I have been watching 2 recently and it's by far the best series. I love 1 but 2 refines it. The characters are amped but they aren't cartoony. 3-5 are hard to order but while they look nice they definitely aren't as funny as 1 or 2. I have a soft spot for 6 since that was the series that got me into Dwarf in the first place. 7 was disappointing but had its moments, as was 9, and 8 was a let down from beginning to end so 10 goes above them.
This is another one of those things I've worked out hundreds of times over the years! Nice to be able to write it down.
6, 2, 7, 5, 1, 3, 4, 10, -- BTE, 8. Although the top few were very ahrd to pick between, and there should be a *massive* gap between 10 and BTE.
Given this some thought, and saying it's ranked "from best to worst" would be wrong. At least a few series are practically tied, and no series of Red Dwarf has been worst in the sense of being completely unwatchable, so...
From 'favourite' to 'least good':
6, 5, 2, 3, 1, 4, 10, 7, 9, 8
9 is BTE, of course. Yes, Series 6 is all the way up there. Gunmen, Out Of Time and Legion are all extremely memorable and every episode has moments of greatness. Series 5 is also a great series with Back to Reality and Quarantine right up there.
It really seemed hit its stride with Series 2 and it deserves to be right up near the top; 'Kryten' has a number of good moments and jokes, but so many excellent ideas in the series all round. Thanks For The Memory is "classic Red Dwarf" in every sense.
My final series order after watching all series in their entirety and then repeatedly watching every RDX episode!
VII = :?
IV = :?
IX (BTE) =
Okay so since my last entry on this thread, things have changed somewhat. Since March I have watched the entire series 1-9 again (in fact I watched some a few times). And of course we now have series X to add into the mix of Dwafy goodness too.
So, this is my current series order. *Subject to change (as always)*
2, 1, 3, 6, 5, 10, 7, 4, 8, BTE
V, II, IV, I, VI, III, X, XI, VII, VIII.
It's hard because in each series I have a standout episode or two, some of which are my favourites and therefore you'd think it'd make them the top of my list...
But there you have it. My list. For now.
i like them all alike,if i had to choose though...
NOT SO GOOD
Now with X...
Back to Earth
My new ratings, with X.
(some of my other orders may have changed too)
I'm sure I replied to this thread ages ago... this must be a duplicate thread. :P
Anyway, I guess I should update my list due to series X. lol Over the last couple of months, I've had a massive Dwarf marathon, watching most of the episodes several times again, as well as re-watching the older series' DVD commentaries which I've already seen a few times over the years! The series' at the bottom of my list are pretty much no brainers for me, but it's still a difficulty choosing between my fave series', as there's not much to seperate them! Ah well, here we go...
I'm pretty sure my list is unchanged from when I posted one here a couple of years back, although at that point, BTE and obviously X wasn't in it!
