Krysis, this afternoon. This is the other episode in series 11 - after Give and Take and Twentica - that reaches definite classic status. They are all part of the finest series since 1993 but these are the 3 that shine the most. Kryten's mid-life crisis - which reflects obviously how the crew are getting older now - is well handled and I am one of those fans who thought his ridiculous red sports car-like suit was hilarious instead of cringeworthy humour (and it was intended to be the latter anyway). The script is very tight, full of jokes and I especially enjoy the one about Rimmer's ex-classmate. It is skilful characterisation by Doug that Butler (played brilliantly by Dominic Coleman) is pompous but he is not truly unlikable and has a good intention to help Kryten's crisis - if it was the audience as well as Kryten who detested him then it would not be funny and instead annoying. Meanwhile, I like the inclusion of a GELF for the first time since 1997 and another characteristic that Krysis has that is in keeping with Red Dwarf's glory days is it is another episode in which there is so much happening and there are plenty of twists and turns in the plot to keep the viewer occupied. Admittedly, the pay off for Kryten's midlife crisis with the sentient universe contradicts the premise of Red Dwarf that they are "alone in a Godless universe" but it is successful, humorous and the S.I.U. station looks visually stunning too. The actual resolution with Kryten realising that "love" holds the universe together may sound cheesy but IMHO it rounds off the episode highly effectively somehow. The twist at the end that Kryten has failed to outsmart Butler at anything due to the latter's deliberately tampering with Starbug to contrive for them to arrive at the S.I.U. provides the episode with cleverness. For any Dwarfers that - unlike me in retrospect - are not satisfied with a few of the abrupt endings in series 11, this is a proper and amusing finish to round the episode off nicely. There are only a couple of slight issues that I would criticise in Krysis, however. The repeating of the GELF pronunciation bit lasts too long while as the episode is less than 27 minutes I would have preferred if Doug had not deleted the bit where Butler even fixes Lister's ingrowing toe nail. Like with the Mineopoly bit at the start of Samsara and lift conversation at the begininng of Give and Take, it provides an already comic scene with an extra, intelligent purpose later. Overall though, this is an excellent episode and I honestly believe it ranks amongst some of the best Red Dwarf. 9/10.
