Gone But Not Forgotten

I smiled a lot, but only had a few laughs. That said, I enjoyed it a lot. The actors have generally aged well, but I notice Kryten has put on weight. Do robots have fat cells?
Kryten's girth is discussed a fair bit among fans. The theory that he has had several hardware additions salvaged from derelict spacecraft is commonly put forward. In fact, I think it might have originated from Robert Llewellyn himself. Poor puzzling is Arnold Rimmer's aging, since he's a hologram who shouldn't age at all. But mostly, the cast have aged pretty well.
I didn't see that. Did it include an explanation as to why he spent six-hundred years in a cell on Rimmerworld without aging a jot?They did explain when it was brought back on Dave why Rimmer was ageing. It was jargon, but it was an explanation.
Yeah, Chloe Annett joined as Kochansky part way through series 7, and while it didn't bother me, most fans disliked her. In fact, most fans dislike everything beyond series 6. I'm encouraged that many of those fans are calling these new episodes the 'best since series 6'.Thoroughly enjoyed Samsara. Touched on some classic RD memes (remember the luck virus and Rimmerworld?) and with a clever narrative, switching between now and 3 million years ago. Some genuine laugh-out-loud moments too, notably Cat misidentifying the skeleton orgy as a game of Twister. Excellent series so far. After the dire episodes, when they ruined the whole dynamic by introducing a different Kochansky back in season 8 (?), looks like RD is back on track.
Cat's extended history lesson had me chuckling...
Aargh, I missed it!
