Movie Reviews

Great picture and extras, Buy it or be a gimboid

"Just got these the other day. And of course I couldn't sleep until I had watched them both... with commentary turned on of course.The picture and sound are excellent. The commentary (by the whole cast no less) is great. They chit chat about the history, what was going on when things were filmed, odd things they remember, etc. Very enjoyable and quite humorous for the Red Dwarf fan. Lots of other interesting extras to explore on the DVD as well. All in all it is a very nicely done DVD. If you are a RD fan, you have no choice but to go buy it. Ace would approve. :-)My only complaint is that they are only going to release two seasons every year. The wait for the next ones are going to kill me.Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast."
At last!

"At long last, Red Dwarf is finally being released on DVD--and with enough tantalizing extras to cause any fan of the show to celebrate. With smeg ups, deleted scenes, documentaries and interviews (not to mention the crisp, clear quality of the original episodes on DVD), this is a release that I have long been anticipating. Crisp, fresh writing and marvellous acting more than make up for the, at times, low budget sets--and even for their low budget, they still manage to bring across an excellent sense of desolation and loneliness, essential to the show.I love this television show. And with two series' being released each February for the next few years, this is a tremendous event that should and will be celebrated by all Red Dwarf fans."
Wonderful for homesick Brits!

"I am English and was 16 when the first series of Red Dwarf came out. I think my Dad and I watched every single episode of every series. Now that I live in America I tend to get homesick sometimes. So I go through phases of watching any English comedies I can get my hands on - Blackadder, Ab Fab, French & Saunders, Last of the Summer Wine, Jeeves & Wooster (although I draw the line at Are you Being Served. I hated that program and I am not going to change my mind now!). I came really close to buying Red Dwarf on VHS last year (was getting desperate!) but then I found out they were finally releasing it on DVD so I am really glad I waited.
If you've never heard of Red Dwarf but you like the comedy of Blackadder and Ab Fab, give it a try - I don't think you will be dissapointed."
Great for Red Dwarf Fans

"The commentaries are hilarious, although sometimes hard to understand. (There is no closed captioning for the cast's comments.) There is, however, closed captioning for the regular episodes, which I really appreciate. Sometimes the studio audience is laughing so hard, you can't understand what the characters are saying. If you have seen the Smeg-Ups or Smeg-Out tapes, you have already seen the outtakes that are on the DVD. The booklets in the DVD's are not very detailed, just some info on what to look for in each episode. I would have liked more background material. They also should have provided cast bios on the DVD. The picture quality is excellent. A must buy for any Red Dwarf Fan."
