"...and its about time. Join the continuing adventures of the crew of the Red Dwarf; Dave Lister (the ship screwball and slacker and the last human being alive), "Holly" (the ships computer), Arnold J. Rimmer(a holographic representation of Lister's deceased bunkmate), and "Cat" ( a humanoid who has 'evolved' from Lister's cat while he was in stasis for 3 million years) as they meet "Kryten", an android who will join the ship as a regular crewmember in season 3, survive a stasis leak, and travel to an alternate universe!!
Seasons 1 and 2 are available Feb 25th 2003, and two seasons will be released every ensuing February until all eight seasons have been released.This is the funniest television program ever made in my opinion, and I am sure you will enjoy it!!!"
The Adventures Continue Beyond the Ship

"For budget reasons, the first season was limited to events on the ship. Now that the Red Dwarf model is built, money can be spent on other things like planet shots and adding color to the ship's set. The plots are still like a sitcom, but the scripts are a little more developed this time. There will be radical changes in the next season so don't get used to this as it is. This DVD has one of the best commentaries I've ever heard. I love hearing the actors comment on the show. This set also has the best extras, included on a second DVD. It has some of the same type of things the first one had like smeg-ups (bloopers), deleted scenes, and photos. It has the complete Tongue-Tied performance. The A-Z Documentary is interesting and has some great moments. I'm not sure why the Daleks appear, but you do hear comments from various actors and well-known people - Patrick Stewart, Stephen Hawking. The "Smeghead" segment is great!!! ...especially when a young fan is heard asking what "smeg" means. The word remains undefined although most of us can probably guess the meaning. The A-Z Documentary and Alternative Personalities offers some insight into what to expect in the future seasons."
