    A selection of reviews that had given scores for each episode and what the average is (maybe it’ll be useful to look back on in future to see how they were received at the time or maybe it’s an exercise in time wasting but what’s done is done!)

    TWENTICA:

    mymbuzz.com 3.5/5
    thepalaceofwisdom.co.uk 8/10

    Five bags of popcorn and throw in a Skutter in a hard hat.

    Due to no popular demand, I’m going to finish this off:

    KRYSIS

    cultbox.co.uk 3/5
    mymbuzz.com 4.5/5
    thepalaceofwisdom.co.uk 8/10
    epicstream.com 9/10
    cultfix.co.uk 8/10
    scifibulletin.com 7/10

    Average (out of 10): 7.83

    CAN OF WORMS:

    cultbox.co.uk 3/5
    mymbuzz.com 3.5/5
    thepalaceofwisdom.co.uk 9/10
    epicstream.com 9/10
    cultfix.co.uk 9/10
    scifibulletin.com 7/10

    Average (out of 10): 7.83

    Therefore, the final table:

    1/ Give and Take: 8.58
    2/ Officer Rimmer: 8
    3/ Can of Worms 7.83
    4/ Krysis: 7.83
    5/ Twentica: 7.67
    6/ Samsara: 7.25

    Now that is scientific fact. There’s no real evidence for it, but it is scientific fact.

    Did any of those people actually watch Can of Worms?

    Maybe it’s like how Return of the King was the one that won all the Oscars: because it came last, it was seen as the one to represent the achievement of the whole series, despite the fact that THE FIRST WAS THE BEST.

    Yes, I did just compare Can of Worms to Return of the King.

    I’m not comparing Twentica to Fellowship, though.

    Return Of The King was frequently criticised for having a succession of overlong, drawn-out endings, which probably disqualifies it from being a metaphor for anything in series XI.

    #218678

    The last half hour of Return of the King looks twee next to the hellishness of the Hobbit Quad-Heptalogy.

    Looks like most people agree with me on Can of Worms than you lot.

    I found among work colleagues, family and friends (all casual viewers) that everyone really liked it. My mate who went to a couple of the XII recordings with me thought that it was clearly the best of XI so definitely some vastly different viewpoints around.

    Top 5 episodes that made me go ‘what the fuck?’ at the end.

    5. Officer Rimmer
    4. Entangled
    3. Emohawk – Polymorph 2
    2. Back To Earth Part 2
    1. Pete Part 1

    I love The Lord Of The Rings movies but have you listened to the BBC radio version?

    When faced with a majority of the criticisms of Can of Worms (the strange plot decisions, too many ideas, missed opportunities) I can’t really disagree with any of that. But it did make me laugh, almost more then any other episode this year, and at the end of the day that’s about the most important thing a comedy show can do, I think.
