So, my review of the first episode, without being spoiler:

Very much on par with the best of Series X, better than VII, VIII and Back to Earth, but still not quite Series III-VI level of good. You can see the attempts to re-capture that era, though, and it does help, it's just the acting can be a little Shatner-esque at times, which was never the case back then.

But as the series goes on they may settle in, overall I very much enjoyed it, worth watching!

I've watched episodes one and two now.

A lot of the jokes in the first were predictable; if only because I've seen enough Red Dwarf to expect the Expectation vs. Reality jokes. A large plot point was pretty much ripped out of X.

Second episode was far better, definitely has the feeling of the older series. I feel like the episodes are a bit short, however - the second in particular - there were several bits that could have been lengthened, and the end, well, it just ended.

The third episode I've now seen and I thought it was easily the strongest of the three.

You'll have to watch that and let me know what you think Darkclone. It reminded me a lot of Quarantine from Series V.
