I really enjoyed this. I don't usually like watching people cook, but this was an exception. Every few seconds, something funny happened, and kept it interesting. The jokes were perfectly intertwined with the cooking. I've seen it a lot of times (on my 4th series DVD) and I laugh every time. The characters stayed true to the series, as did the jokes. Cat's make up and hair looked a bit off at the beginning, but since he had to 'change' really quick, it is forgiven. The pairing of the people (Rimmer/Duane and Lister/Kryten) was funny. I loved how Ainsley (the cook) kept getting mad because they couldn't do anything right. Each character had a lot of funny moments, which I enjoyed greatly. Kriss kept watching the cooking with this look of horror, that made me laugh out loud. Rimmer cheating also fits his character very well. I would recommend this to anyone!
