Yeah it's been a solid series all round. My one gripe with the newest one is, as funny as it was, nobody would try and pick up a vending machine that way while being on top of it. It would've made more sense if he was somehow stuck to it.
Other than that, it was a sold episode that felt in keeping with the first couple of series in intimacy.
I've kind of a little bit forgotten how the whole plot developed, but could it not be the case that Rimmer simply just....died and then was re-animated as the hologram? Although that theory's thrown out by the assertion he died 'once' before in the latest episode? Still no idea how the other guys could've been saved from the mirror universe. Unless we're in it now. Or something. It's not worth pondering about >.<
