GUNMEN OF THE ApOCALYpSE
The plot When Kryten shuts himself down so his circuits can concentrate on creating an antivirus programme, the others try to communicate with him using a Western-themed computer game as an interface. Why it’s great This one won an international Emmy Award, and it’s not hard to see why. Making the most of its Star Trek holodeck-style gimmick, it’s huge, silly fun from beginning to end, from Lister’s rather unsavoury addiction to a film noir VR game to Starbug riding off into the sunset. Best moment There’s a bonkers bar room brawl in which the Dwarfers use their computer game characters’ skills – Rimmer can now throw a punch!
