    It occurred to me last night that with 12 series now, it would be fun to see what episodes people would choose for a second round of Six of the Best spanning Series VII-XII. I also think it would be fun to pick what episodes GNP would choose for the release.

    I normal treat BTE as a whole, but everywhere else (including the polls here) treat them as separate episodes, so 1 of the 3 parts of BTE will have to be included

    Mine picks would be

    Tikka to Ride
    Cassandra
    BTE (Part 2)
    Trojan
    Give and Take
    Cured

    I really wanted to include Twentica, but that’s far to similar to Tikka (in that they go back in time to earth and there is an altered time line) so had to go with G&T instead

    I think GNP would pick

    Stoke me a Clipper
    Krytie TV
    BTE Part 3
    The Beginning
    Can of Worms
    Siliconia

    Would you say the idea of “Six of the Best” is to include the best episode from each series, or to include an episode from each series which collectively showcases a good variety of styles and characters?

    Because it’s possible someone’s favourite episodes from each series include Stoke Me A Clipper, Cassandra, The Beginning, Officer Rimmer and Skipper, but you might not want a box set to be so focused on Rimmer.

    Tikka to Ride
    Cassandra, if Back In The Red is cheating
    Part Three
    Not Lemons, probably The Beginning. Might pick Trojan myself
    Give & Take
    Mechocracy (or Skipper)

    I’m very decisive

    I’m not even sure the original Six of the Best select the best episodes from each series, I think it is just a good collection of what Red Dwarf is.

    That’s why I suggested your own personal Six of the Best, and then six that GNP might potentially pick, so you could do a favourites list vs what an actual product might look like

    I think Future Echoes, Queeg, Polymorph, Dimension Jump, Back to Reality and Gunmen of the Apocalypse is a fair description as the best episode from each series even if I don’t personally agree with 4 of them.

    I’d go for:
    Series VII: Tikka to Ride
    Series VIII: Cassandra*
    Series IX: Back to Earth Director’s Cut
    Series X: The Beginning*
    Series XI: Give & Take
    Series XII: Skipper

    *not my favourite episode from these series but I think the one that would best fit such a release.

    Tikka
    30 minutes of static

    Pete stole my joke. Now how will I put down VIII?

    #246789

    Hamish

    Epideme
    Cassandra
    BTE Part Two
    Lemons
    Give & Take
    Cured

    I am controversial with VII at the very least.

    THIS IS FUN. I am going to entirely change the rules as I think a Dave-only release would be interesting (and I don’t think they’d pick one episode of BTE), so feel free to ignore this if deemed not in the spirit of the thread:

    Lemons
    The Beginning
    Twentica
    Officer Rimmer
    M-Corp
    Skipper

    That’s kind of meant to be a balanced, “clearly this was meant to be a big episode” kind of list. If it was my personal list, I might be temped to change Twentica for Krysis, and Skipper for Mechocracy.

    I’m enjoying a lot of the similarities we’re seeing on people’s lists.

    I think John is probably closest to what might actually be released though, if they were to do a Dave era set.

    Just include one episode spotlighting each main character, plus a top drawer ensemble episode.

    Kochanski – Duct Soup
    Kryten – Krytie TV
    Rimmer – Back to Earth Part 1
    Lister – Dear Dave
    The Cat – Can of Worms
    Ensemble – Timewave

    The perfect Christmas present, right there.

    I’d buy a Dave best of if we could get some commentaries and new extras. There are lots of unreleased deleted scenes and I’d kill for XI/XII outtake reels edited more like the X one rather than pissy little US-style web videos.

    Very likely about to contradict my PP ranking but here goes:

    Blue
    Krytie TV
    BTE Part 2
    The Beginning
    Give & Take
    Siliconia

    My Six of the Best Part 2:

    VII – Stoke
    VIII – Cassandra (I really hate Cassandra but it’s at least _trying_ to be Red Dwarf unlike most of VIII, albeit Red Dwarf paint-by-numbers rehashing an old idea they even name-dropped)
    BtE – Back to Earth Director’s Cut, fuck you.
    X – The Beginning
    XI – Give & Take
    XII – M-Corp

    My XI/XII Six of the Best would probably be:

    Give & Take
    Officer Rimmer
    Krysis
    Mechocracy
    M-Corp
    Skipper

    And finally here’s the Dave Era Six-Pack:

    Lemons
    The Beginning
    Give & Take
    Officer Rimmer
    Mechocracy
    M-Corp
