    Series XI is arguably the first series since IV or V where the episode order is wholly interchangeable – you could put the six episodes as broadcast in any order without any obvious continuity snarls or other problems. So what would your preferred order be?

    I’d tentatively say:
    1. Give & Take
    2. Officer Rimmer
    3. Krysis
    4. Samsara
    5. Can of Worms
    6. Twentica

    Samsara is the most ‘Episode 5’ episode of anything ever made. That’s not even necessarily a criticism of it. ‘Second to last’ is a genre unto itself.

    1. Give & Take
    2. Officer Rimmer
    3. Samsara
    4. Can of Worms
    5. Krysis
    6. Twentica

    4. Top Gear
    5. Give & Take (rpt)
    6. Twentica

    I’d include a repeat run of Dimension Jump in there somewhere just for full-on VI off-air tape nostalgia.

    Give and Take as the opener and Twentica as the finale are no-brainers for me. The rest can go anywhere although I’m probably more inclined to keep Samsara in the episode 2 slot to get it out of the way quicker.

    Give and Take
    Krysis
    Samsara
    Officer Rimmer
    Can of Worms
    Twentica

    I think my running order would go like that.

    Of course if I could bend time and put out a series X based on the best of the Dave era eps then it would look like:

    1. Trojan
    2. Give and Take (removing reference to Rimmers father)
    3. Twentica
    4. Officer Rimmer
    5. Lemons
    6. The Beginning

    That’s a damn strong series in my humble non-valued likely wrong opinion.

    My personal preference:

    1. Give and Take
    2. Krysis
    3. Can of Worms
    4. Officer Rimmer
    5. Samsara
    6. Twentica

    Arrangement closest in feel to the classic series:

    1. Can of Worms (Camille + Psirens)
    2. Samsara (Future Echoes + Marooned + DNA)
    3. Twentica (Gunmen)
    4. Give and Take (Stasis Leak + Bodyswap + Quarantine)
    5. Krysis (Queeg + Timeslides + Dimension Jump)
    6. Officer Rimmer (Me2 + Meltdown + Out of Time)

    I will be generally rewatching the series in recording order.

    I love the idea of ending the entire series with that Officer Rimmer ending.

    Rob, just swap Twentica for Worms on yours and you get mine.

    I am fascinated that nearly everybody agrees with Give & Take as a show 1. It may be the first and only broad consensus ever formed on the subject of XI…

    That would probably work quite well. Everyone would initially assume it was a cliff-hanger, and since Red Dwarf is famously crap at paying them off, no one would be that disappointed when it wasn’t.

    Arrangement closest in feel to the classic series:

    I was thinking of matching them up with their series III equivalents:

    1. Backwards/Twentica (a trip to 20th century Earth)
    2. Marooned/Samsara (isolated conversations)
    3. Polymorph/Can of Worms (I have got something in mind as a specific link between these episodes, but to mention it would be a spoiler)
    4. Bodyswap/Officer Rimmer (Rimmer misuses technology. OK, this is probably the most tenuous connection)
    5. Timeslides/Give & Take (time travel again… but unlike the first episode, here they intervene in their own pasts)
    6. The Last Day/Krysis (a Kryten-focused episode in which he meets another mechanoid)

    I’d try and keep an even-quality byte one/two mix. Something akin to:

    1. Samsara
    2. Krysis
    3. Give & Take

    4. Can of Worms
    5. Officer Rimmer
    6. Twentica

    Twentica, Give & Take, Can of Worms, Officer Rimmer
    1. Samsara – simply because imagine the series opening on that model & music, perhaps even as a cold open.
    2. Krysis
    3. Twentica
    4. Can of Worms
    5. Give & Take
    6. Officer Rimmer – simply because imagine the series ending on that scene.

    I can’t do the X/XI megamix thing before the has-to-be-first Give And Take must follow the has-to-be-last The Beginning and my head pops.

    But if you must…

    Trojan
    Can Of Worms
    Lemons
    Officer Rimmer
    Krysis
    The Beginning

    Crap, pretend I didn’t leave these in, I just had them in the textbox to speed up my selection process which I gave up on halfway through.

    Also, my Dave Era megamix would probably be longer than six, but if it had to be just six:
    1. Lemons
    2. Samsara
    3. Fathers and Suns
    4. Back to Earth, Part 3 (I know it kinda needs the other two for context, but whatever)
    5.Trojan
    6. Officer Rimmer
