Need I say more? OK then!
Series three is where the show stopped being "OK" and instead became one of the best UK sitcoms ever made. Usually in a TV series you get strong episodes and weak ones, but of these six, not one of them sucks. I could watch them all again, and again, and again until the DVD melts.
The series debut "Backwards" launches you straight into gems like Kryten's driving test, the reversing tandem and an unforgettable barroom-tidy. "Marooned" has Lister and Rimmer crashed on an ice planet with just a few burnable items, a bag of soggy smoky bacon crisps, a pot noodle and a tin of dog food to keep him alive. "Polymorph" is a true classic involving a genetic mutant, killer shami kebabs, shrinking boxer shorts, terror and alphabetti spaghetti. "Timeslides" features shenanigans with causality, the Tension Sheet, a suspicious briefcase and special guest appearances from Koo Stark, Ruby Wax and Adolf Hitler. "Body Swap" includes a new approach to losing weight, the most hilarious kidnapping ever attempted, liberal amounts of Domestos and a heap of mashed potato. And in "The Last Day" Kryten's lease has expired, and he's on his way to Silicon Heaven, to join all the calculators - but there's still one last party before his replacement arrives...
This is Dwarf at its strongest; cheeky, fast and fun, and this two disc set pulls out all the stops. There's a good set of extras: "Backwards" run backwards for a whole episode, a good documentary with the cast and crew from series three, smeg-ups, deleted scenes and even some original BBC trailers, rescued by dedicated Dwarfers and included on this DVD. As Extras discs go, this one is very junk-free.
All in all this is an excellent DVD set. The price is low, the content is excellent, the extras are good and the picture and sound quality is admirable. Excellent value! So get yourself a curry, get out a six-pack of lager and stick this DVD in your machine. Final verdict: Five Stars. You must own this!
