* In broadcast order, with Ganymede.tv's rating out of 52 episodes (Series 1-8) in parentheses.
** This is classic Red Dwarf in that it is a sublime mix of comedy and science fiction, with a human heart at its core. It also has amazing special effects, which contrast to the slicker, but soulless and unimaginative CGI of later episodes.
*** My guilty pleasure episode, but still I think the ideas are sound - not of parallel universes as such, but of gender politics. OK, they're not great, but they're interesting. Plus I always love episodes of shows where characters get drunk together!
**** That's right, no Back to Reality. It's a great episode and I like it a lot but had never taped it from the TV therefore it hasn't grown on me like the others have.
***** There are no good episodes after Series Six.
