Episode Summary

EDIT
A mail pod arrives at the Red Dwarf and Rimmer receives the belated news that his father has passed away. Despite the fact that Rimmer hated his father, he is nonetheless completely devastated.
To alleviate his depression regarding the news (not to mention the fact that he has a $8,500 tax bill), the crew try a distraction in the form of a new Virtual Reality game where all the players' desires and fantasies can come true, but even in a perfect place, Rimmer's mind has its own way of stabbing him in the back.moreless
