Product Description

Series One to Eight of the smash hit comedy series created by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor.

Chicken soup machine repairman and intergalactic loser Dave Lister awakes from suspended animation to discover he is the lone survivor of a radiation leak and is now three million years into deep space and the last surviving member of the human race.

Dave is soon joined by Arnold J. Rimmer, a hologram of his dead bunk-mate, a life-form who's evolved from his pet cat and Kryten, a neurotic sanitation mechanoid. Together this unlikely bunch of heroes attempt to find their way back to Earth, under the guidance of Holly, the ship's senile computer. Along the way they'll be brought back to reality, lose their mothership, become stranded on Starbug, bump into Lister's ex-girlfriend and find themselves back on Red Dwarf where the original crew have been resurrected by nanobots.

Includes all the episodes from each of the eight series, these include: 'The End', 'Future Echoes', 'Balance Of Power', 'Waiting For God', 'Confidence And Paranoia', 'Me2', 'Kryten', 'Better Than Life', 'Thanks For the Memory', 'Stasis Leak', 'Queeg', 'Parallel Universe', 'Backwards', 'Marooned', 'Polymorph', 'Bodyswap', 'Timeslides', 'The Last Day', 'Camille', 'D.N.A.', 'Justice', 'White Hole', 'Dimension Jump' and 'Meltdown'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain package 29 Nov 2010
Format:DVD
Let me be up front about this - I love Red Dwarf, even the last couple of series had their share of great moments. So the chance of replacing all the VHS sets (that took up a whole book shelf) with a box set no larger than a 3xVHS box was irresistable. And it does what it says on the box - it's just the shows! Of course I would like to see the extras, but at my age with two young kids I don't know when I'd ever have time to watch them. And the shows themselves are great and it's good to have them on a digital format now. So for the sake of space and economy I was very happy to buy this package and get exactly what I expected/wanted:)

5.0 out of 5 stars Just What It Says On the Box.. 8 Jan 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
All the Episodes from ALL Series of Red Dwarf. I had all the series on VHS and now replaced with this DVD collection.

Red Dwarf - Just the Shows is ideal for ANYONE with a good sense of humour. TIMELESS Fun... I was addicted to this series when the first episode "The End" was first shown on TV in the late 1980's. I can watch it over and over again and never get bored and much like Black Adder in life there is always the opportunity to quote lines from the show...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fans will love it! 28 Sep 2010
By CJL
Format:DVD
This package is exactly what it claims to be. Nothing more and nothing less...just the shows. Quality is excellent and real value for money! If you are a fan of Red Dwarf like me and want to revisit the series I can't think of a better way to do it. The dry wit and wonderful characterizations are always evident and because the sets were always intended to look tacky if will never date. Loved it!

Having grown up watching the mid-series (IV, V and VI) in the early nineties on the BBC, I picked this box set up having foolishly lent all my individual series remasters to someone from uni I haven't seen since.

Presentation is a bit grotty and cheap looking in regards to the title menus, but that's totally acceptable at the price. It was quite refreshing to watch the original transfers, it certainly added to the charm knowing you're watching the 'original' cuts.

As a brief rundown of the quality of the series, they follow a trajectory moving from character comedy more into situational comedy as more money was made available. Series 1 and 2 focus more on close knit character humour (with brilliant writing for the burgeoning relationship between Lister and Rimmer, especially in the fantastic 'Thanks for the Memory'), through series 3 and 4 where the concepts and ideas began to be developed a bit more as Starbug allowed travel to other settings (plus, pleasingly, character development of the Cat from marginal - I'd forgotten quite how marginal in the first series - to a major player, along with the welcome addition of Kryten).

I personally feel RD peaked in series V and VI, where the writing was sharp as a tack and some of the ideas and settings fantastic. All 4 characters are well developed and there is a brilliant 'cockpit' dynamic with quick pacing and superb banter between all. Hardly a dud episode in those 2 series, but many classics, Quarantine, Back to Reality, Legion and Gunmen of the Apocalypse probably the best.

To be honest, upon recent rewatching, it struck me quite how atrocious series VII and VIII are.

4.0 out of 5 stars Both Just the Shows: Bery Vanilla 12 Jan 2011
By Azarias
Format:DVD
I assume you know what Red Dwarf is if you are looking at getting this so i'll forgo a story explantation.

Just the Shows contains the 52 shows from the first 8 seasons of Red Dwarf and combines Jest the Shows 1 & 2. The episodes are the original unremastered edits so there are some errors on the transfers of the earlier episodes which include warping and lines. These are for the most part only to be expected for such an old program.

The remastered versions of the earlier episodes had them cut down to 16:9 and lost much of the frame. It's good to see the whole frame even though there are black bars on a widescreen monitor. These transfer includes the original intros and small one liners that were "americanised/internationalised" in some later versions (ie Felicity Kendal's Bottom referenced instead of Marilyn Monroe's).

The only pity is that it does not include the extended and remastered versions from season 7 which were definate inmprovements. It does not have the combined episodes of 8 ie. the 2 shows from 'Pete' combined as on the season 8 dvd. I had some trouble removing them. The whole box is about the size of 4 standard dvd cases back to front.

The box set presentation is good with episodes descriptions and one disc for seasons 1 - 6 and two for 7 and 8. The menu's consist of a main page listing the episodes and subtitle options: on or off. There are also chapters for each episode. These are nice easy menu's that however for navigation and not filled with as much junk as the standard season dvd's

The pictures in the menu are terrible though and i don't know hat they were thinking using them. Something like the bodysnatcher collection might have been better or even the artwork from the original videos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Red Dwarf. Series 1-8 26 Sep 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hi , I bought this set for myself to remind me of all the fun I had watching them when I was a teenager . Im 42 now. It's a fantastic set to own at outstanding value . I recommend grabbing some beer one night when the kids have gone to bed and sticking these on. What I really love is the way this iconic comedy evolves from standard early sitcom sets to very cool scenes and effects later in the series .
The jokes , pranks and story lines are timeless. I'm now addicted all over again. I think there is a bit of Dave Lister in all of us. Love it. Great value as stated and prompt delivery. Thank you very much.
