    I'm honestly not sure, you know. How about the rest of you?

    I think I would, yes!

    I watched Hyperdrive for the first time and thought it was dreadful!

    Yes. I only discovered Red Dwarf during Christmas holidays in 2007 and I was hooked after 1 episode. I love older sci-fi more then anything recent and Red Dwarf just happens to be in a style that I love.

    I agree with Ant e about Hyperdrive being dreadful, I have the first season on DVD and watched it just after Red Dwarf and it was hard to stomach.

    I saw it for the first time year and half ago (or less) and I became massive fan... The same would happen today.

    The first episode I ever saw was the first repeat of Backwards on the 4th of October, 1990. I was bored and had nothing to do. I'd heard about Red Dwarf from others but had decided it was a load of rubbish and had no intention of ever watching the show. But I was bored so I watched the episode and immediately fell in love with the series. Everything about it looked amazing to me. But would I still fall in love with Red Dwarf if I saw the same episode in 2017? Backwards in 1990 looked amazing to me. And yet when I watch the same episode today it looks horribly dated and unfunny, and it's an episode I tend to avoid (though to be honest I think using backwards footage for laughs was a dated concept even back then). In conclusion, if my introduction to Red Dwarf today was Backwards I'm pretty sure I wouldn't become a fan. But would it be different for any other episode? I really don't know.

    I think I would be too actually. Even if I was seeing my first Dwarf now....random episode ...... Yeah I still would be. Because , even I didn't like that particular episode all that much I would see the massive potential for my enjoyment of more of them. And really, I've had at least one or two good laugh's in even the poorest episode.
