I have always believed that those who watch Red Dwarf for the comedy dislike series VII and like series VIII. Whereas people like myself who enjoy Red Dwarf more for the Sci-Fi, character development and drama like series VII and dislike series VIII.
Swings and roundabouts.
I like the sci-fi elements as well, but the comedy comes first and foremost for me. The earlier Series got the tone perfect, Series VII made it all a bit too dark and super-duper serious for me, did I mention no Rimmer?
