  • Ends with the hilarious munckin "Hes Arnold, Arnold, Arnold Rimmer" song

    Which can be found here:

    The best part of the episode!

    I found the rest of it to be rather slow with just rewards you get from flashback episodes - very little. The humour is there, but overall the episode feels like an excuse to reminisce over a departed Barrie. The plot is Dave though he doesnt know it actually misses Rimmer, at least in a bad way! Kochanski does her best to help cheer him up, while Kryton continues to feel threatened by the fantasy relationship he sees forming between the two humans.

    It really isnt the best plot or story for the show and though its does a good job of continuing to show the dynamic forming between the new crew the only memorable part of the show is the actual song at the end.

    Im beginning to think that my original reaction to when Kochanski return was right - it wasnt as good as the earlier/mid-term series.

    Still, its more than watchable w/o the song, which provides a neat ending.
