5.0 out of 5 stars The first series is one of the best, 25 Oct. 2007
By 
This review is from: Red Dwarf: Complete BBC Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I have a very high opinion of the first two series. Both have hilarious bunkroom scenes and Holly is seen as a character rather than someone in the background because he/she was replaced by Kryten.

The End:

A humourous pilot and the writers ingeniously create the relationship between Rimmer and Lister is just under thirty minutes and commence explanations on holograms and Cadamin II. 4.5/5

Future Echoes:

The only real 'sci-fi' plot of the first series is a great start to long line of similarly filmed stories. There are a few mysteries in this episode and one neatly links to the conclusion of Series Two. 5/5

Balance of Power:

Rimmer is a complete smeg head in this episode and when he looks down hologrammatic Kochanski's blouse you connect with Lister and agree Rimmer is at his most hateful in this ep. Fortunately his character is lightened towards the end of this series. 3.5/5

Waiting for God:

I am not entirely keen on this episode and I feel it is the weakest of this series. The Cat Priest is too shallow and we do not know enough about him when he dies to feel sympathy for him when he finally dies. The backstory with Rimmer and the 'Quaagers' is worth the rating I am going to give it. 2.5/5

Confidence and Paranoia:

This is not a fan favourite but I feel fondly of it and is my fifth favourite episode throughout. Rimmer is somewhat caring in this episode that is until the end... There is also the first villain of the series here- Confidence. It may be argued whether he is a villain or not but he does try to kill Lister on the cat walk by trying to take his helmet off. 5/5

Me2:

This and the previous episode could be a two-parter as it carries on where the 'Confidence' episode left off with two Rimmers.

Overall I am a big fan of this series but I believe the second series is better by a 'gnat's wing' as Rimmer would say.
