It was hilarious up until the writers parted company and Rob Llewellyn stepped in to do some of the writing. The jokes went from sophisticated to lame. The only bits that were funny were the jokes they ripped off from earlier seasons.
Also co-incidentally, just as Rob got involved in the writing Rob's character (Kryten) went from being the comedy straight man with only occasional lines to a very unfunny main character with the bulk of the lines.
