Another good episode, if anything better than last week. Could of done without the Chinese Whispers joke it was predictable from the off and didn't have any pay off.
It could have worked if they didn't make such a big deal out of it, if everyone who was asked the question just asked someone else and the question changed each time, that might have worked. But you're right that there was too much setting it up and not enough pay off.
I also thought they might have got another episode or two's worth of material out of the new computer Pree.
Liked episode 2, the video was well funny. I think the next episodes will likely focus on each of the characters. First one was reintroducing them all, this latest one was mostly about Lister, so I'd expect Rimmer will be next, then Cat and Kryten focused episodes, then hopefully the last one will be a stereo-typical cliffhanger which they'll completely ignore for series 11.
I'm loving the old-schoolness of a lot of the jokes. Naylor seems to be trying (and mostly succeeding so far) in bringing the show back to its roots. I'm starting to get used to them looking older now as well. It didn't stand out as much to me this second episode as much as it did in the first one.
We just need that Rimmer focused episode and I'll be delighted with the series.
