A Must Watch!
9 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode contains by far the best opening to a Red-Dwarf there has ever been, if not the best opening to a program of this entire genre! The episode itself continues the path of Ace Rimmer the mysterious hero who travels dimensions saving the universe and recruiting new Ace Rimmer's to continue their legacy. Rimmer is faced with a difficult choice when it is his time to take up the duty of being Ace Rimmer. Will he finally buckle down and become what destiny planned, or will he be the first to break the chain that 1000's of his predecessors built?

As normal the dwarfers have you in hysterics from the moment you press play and leave you with so many questions that only the next series will reveal!
