    I watched the first ever episode of Red Dwarf a few months ago. A lot of it does date it terribly but actually there was a lot of good there. The writing was incredibly tight. It set up all the rules for the series and set up the situation in 20 minutes, which included explaining what the ship was, what the characters positon in things were, the what and why of holograms. etc. There was a lot of explaining to do, it wasn't just "bloke lives with woman but they're not in a relationship....or are they!?!" That kind of stuff would get dragged out over episodes these days.

    Didn't bother watching the other episodes though.
