Ah yes - are you talking season 1? Season 1, episode 1 is probably the worst episode, unless one is particularly partial to pigs (and no, that wasn't what I was after
). Also the weakest season. I'm a bit of a completionist, but just watching Season 3 would get the best quality ones. They are a bit mixed, but I thought the good ones were quite creative and thoughtful. Definitely not for everyone though.
Speaking of series that pick up, on season 4 Red Dwarf starts improving - when I started watching it, it was a bit like watching season 1 of the Simpsons. Potential, but didn't really convert.
