Series 6 is possibly the most eagerly awaited of the Red Dwarf DVD sets, due to its acclaimed third episode, "Gunmen of the Apocalypse", which earned the program an International Emmy Award in 1994. However, the five other episodes in the series have their own share of absurd laughs, and the two-disc set features enough supplemental features to keep even the most demanding RD fan happy. The crux of series 6 is that the Red Dwarf has been stolen (no thanks to Lister, who can't remember where he left it), and the crew must recover it; their pursuit brings them in contact with brain-consuming aliens ("Psirens", with guest star Jenny Agutter), a polymorph that turns Rimmer and Cat into their alternate identities from Series V ("Emohawk--Polymorph II"), the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse tricked out as gunslingers ("Gunmen of the Apocalypse"), an army of Rimmer clones ("Rimmerworld"), and finally, their own future selves, who turn out to be particularly awful (worse than the present-day ones, that is), and cause a cliffhanger ending that just might spell the end for the Red Dwarf crew.... In short, series 6 more than earns its popular status among Red Dwarf's fanbase, thanks to its sharp writing (sadly, it would be the last series to feature scripts by co-creator Rob Grant) and energetic performances. And the double-disc set matches the quality of the programs with some terrific extras, including commentaries by the RD crew and fans (the latter on "Gunmen of the Apocalypse" only), and featurettes on composer Howard Goodall and series director Andy de Emmony; these are rounded out by the usual collections of "smeg-ups" (bloopers), deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes footage, and another episode of the "Dave Hollins, Space Cadet" radio sketch that inspired the show. And again, the most patient of viewers will find Easter eggs on the menus (happy hunting). --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars The last great series of a great comedy 23 Nov 2007
By Mr. D. Woods VINE VOICE
'Red Dwarf 6' signalled something of an end of an era, as the show never matched its long-running brilliance in the disappointing seventh and eighth series. So this is well worth buying for the simple pleasure of enjoying great comedy at its strongest.

The episodes are superb and still hilarious all these years on. Western spoof (and award winner) 'Gunmen of the Apocalypse' is an obvious highlight, while 'Rimmerworld', 'Legion' and 'Psirens' have laugh out loud moments by the barrel-full. Scenes such as the hapless crew trying to eat a Mimosian Telekenetic banquet and Lister facing off in a guitar playing contest with the infinitely more talented Psiren just epitomise what a wonderful show this was and still is. Even on repeated viewings, I'm still laughing out loud and I haven't even got onto 'Emohawk: Polymorph 2' yet! Let's just say that Ace Rimmer and Duane Dibbley team up to fight a new Polymorph menace and you will get the idea of how terrific an episode this is!

I think the final episode, 'Out of Time', is the best of the Dwarf conclusions to a series and finishes on a surprisingly shocking and ambiguous climax. Considering fans were unsure of the show's future (series 7 came some years later) this was a bold move by writers Rob Grant and Doug Naylor and it feels very satisfying. Superb television, never mind great comedy.

While series 7 and 8 had some enjoyable moments, this really was the last time the show was at its zenith, so Dwarfers will want to add 6 to their collections and treasure the show at its undoubted best.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! 19 Nov 2005
This is by far the best series of Red Dwarf. The writing is fantastic and it is once again brilliantly acted by the cast. Once again without the masterful directing of Ed Bye, he is well replaced by Andy De Enomy. The series begins with Lister coming out of status and regaining his memory with each cast member coming in one by one. This is also the series with the award winning 'Gunmen of the Apocalypse' This one an emmy in America and the series won the comedy award in Britain. The Menus on this DVD are once again fantastic. The special features are also brilliant, with full length documentaries and the usual smeg ups, deleted scenes and a musical featurette. There are also hidden easter eggs which are hard to find, but worth searching for. Overall this is a fantastic DVD which is worth buying and no Red Dwarf fan should be without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes Mr Lister Sir! 22 Feb 2005
Having gathered a reputation and safely secured its position as part of BBC2's friday night comedy, the team behind red dwarf relaxed, put starbug on autopilot, sat down to a couple of cans of extra-strength lager and produced some of the best episodes of the entire run.
Lister was as dishevelled and grubby as the last human could possibly be, Kryten fussed and cleaned and kept Rimmer aware of Space Core Directives; Rimmer was at his most supercilious and the Cat was as vain and arrogant as ever. And we loved them for it.
One of the most important developments in this series was the introduction in LEGION of Rimmer's hard-light drive, allowing him to touch, feel and work, the later much to his chargrin.
Gunmen of the apocalypse is as good as its reputation suggests and a worthy dual winner of the 1994 emmy award in the 'Popular Arts' category and lesser known (but equally impressive) 'Most Innovative Use Of Kryten's Eyeballs' award.
Out of Time was a cracking conclusion to a magnificent series, which left only one question: what would series 7 have been like without the 4 year gap?

5.0 out of 5 stars Red Dwarf VI 31 Aug 2008
Now on Starbug, chasing Red Dwarf through space because "Lister can't remember where he parked it", this is certainly among the best series, if not the best. One of my favourite Red Dwarf one liners is in the episode "Legion" when they're trying to get Legion to come with them and Rimmer mentions that they've met 31 people, all of whom have been nutters. When Legion announces that they won't be leaving his ship until the day they die, Rimmer just looks and says "thirty-two". It's not the line itself, it's the way Chris Barrie delivers it, the look on his face and his tone of voice and timing are just wonderful. Then there's the "space core directives" throughout the series, which Kryten can't resist correcting Rimmer on even once.

In one of the documentries, you find out that the episode "Out of Time" was actually still being written as it was filmed, leaving the cast no time for rehearsals and reading their lines from auto cues and pieces of paper dotted around the set, making it (for me anyway) one of the best episodes ever. Against all the odds, the cast are simply superb in this episode, which really goes to show how comfortable they were in their roles and how great they are.

If you're going to start at any series other than series 1, then start here, this is Red Dwarf at its best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Series 6 - It's Better Than Life!!!!!! 23 Feb 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After losing all my tapes of the Dwarf in a house move I am waiting with baited breath for the release of all the DVDs and I think I'd forgotten just how fantastic 6 is!!!!! The sets are smarter, the characters more developed than ever and the acting's so slick it's easy to believe they're not even trying anymore!
Not only does it contain what most fans concede to be the best episode ever (Gunmen of the Apocalypse) but it backs it up with such classics as Legion and Emohawk - some might say these hark back to previous episodes but... if it ain't broke don't fix it would be my response to this and besides anything that reintroduces Ace Rimmer and Duane Dibley must be worth a watch!!!! Psirens is a slow introduction to the series but still contains some classic one liners and other gags which will go on to provide the meat for the rest of this and subsequent series' - Cat's deader than quips, Rimmer's space corps directives and the Kryten's head jokes. I once read that Rimmerworld was only wriiten by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor as a sweetener to keep Chris Barrie with the show (obviously it ultimately didn't work) and the episode itself is the weekest of the series for me but side by side with such classics who really cares?? The final episode will have you on the edge of seat even today minus the "will there be another series" cafuffal that surrounded it when it first aired!! A stunning end to a stunning series really that saw the show develope into a more coherent series of events rather than the stand alone adventures that had gone before.
As for all the extras there's more smeg ups and deleted scenes than on series' 1-5 and after all most dedicated Dwarfers would buy the DVD for these alone so that's got to be a good thing!
