Re: Red Dwarf series 9 (or is it 10?) in 2012 confirmed by Craig Charl

Not as strong overall as Pree (my fave of the series so far), but it did contain my two biggest individual chuckles so far: the Last Supper visual gag, and second, the reveal of what it was that the Cat actually ate. I also liked the operating table scene, esp. Rimmer's lines.

Lots of filler though, which dragged the overall package down. Having said that, it felt a bit more relaxed than either Pree or Trojan. The tone of the banter between Rimmer and Lister in particular felt much more natural again. I don't know if these eps are being shown in production order, but if they are, I'd actually say that bodes well for the remaining episodes, even if the funny bits in this ep were few and far between. Overall, I'd put it a little below Pree, but better than Trojan. Certainly, I'm not as down on this one as some of you are.
