s**t, how did I miss this thread? I'm a mahoosive Red Dwarf fan! From the trailers I've seen of series X, things look to be back to form. Yes, they all look older, but I can deal with that as long as the writing is good. Back to Earth was okay when watched as one long episode, but not when broken up into 3 parts.
IMO, series 4-6 were the best. Series 1-2 are classics. Series 3 was okay, but Robert Llewellyn was obviously still getting his character down as it went on. Series 7 gets much unwarranted stick, but I loved it and the interaction between Kryten and Kochanski. Series 8 was the weakest, but enjoyable enough. I hope X is well received so they make another series. I'll no doubt buy the Blu-ray when it's released.
Victory is just a prelude to the next battle.
