Product Description

Product Description

As part of the ten year celebrations for the BBC sci-fi comedy show, the first three series of the cult favourite were remastered - adding new effects, sound, music, models and quality. In 'The End', a radiation leak kills all but one of the crew of the mining ship Red Dwarf. After three million years, Dave Lister awakes from suspended animation to find he is the last human being - but he may not be entirely alone. In 'Future Echoes', Red Dwarf breaks the speed of light and the crew start getting glimpses of the future - and Lister realises that he may be reduced to a swirling maelstrom of atoms. In 'Balance of Power', Rimmer is panicking at the thought that Lister may attain a higher rank than him - and will try anything to stop it happening.

From Amazon.co.uk

What if you could communicate with a virus that was infecting you, and argue the ethics of killing a living being to sustain one's own existence? If you were Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Starship Enterprise, you'd probably reach an understanding that led to widespread vegetarianism and the elimination of disease. But if you're Dave Lister, you lose the argument, then have to lie there and listen to the smarty-pants virus mocking you. But you don't give up, because your gallant shipmates are sure to have another trick up their sleeves.

This tape contains the final two episodes of Red Dwarf Series VII, plus short interviews with the show's cast, creators and fans (including scientist Stephen Hawking and actor Patrick Stewart, who played Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation) and a collection of "smeg-ups", or outtakes, from Series VII. The episodes feature at least two of the finest sight gags in the entire Red Dwarf canon, both quite nasty and thoroughly hilarious at the same time. The smeg-ups are worth watching just for the snippets of Danny John-Jules' true accent, a far cry from the Cat's James Brown-inspired speech. --Anna Peekstok --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The start of series VII. Looks fantastic, apart from a few dodgy, bright CGI shots, great acting, set design and effects etc. But are the episodes any good...
Tikka To Ride-
The cliffhanger is concluded logically. This episode is really quite serious. Not since 'Holoship' have I seen such an acomplished mix of comedy and drama. This is a commendable step forward. The 'time-travel save JFK's life' plot is inventive and thought provoking. The story is truly on a par with 'Gunmen Of The Apocalypse'. Funny in all the right places, and some lovely, character based subtle humour is injected too. Very, very nice. A great start. 4/4
Stoke Me A Clipper-
Series VII continues in sparkling form. This is a fantasically funny and poignant farewell to Red Dwarf's best character - Rimmer. The script is pure series 11 vintage, mixing hilarious gags with charming character study. Not since 'Thank's For The Memory' have the characters been this noble to each other. I like it very much. A fantastic pre-credits Ace Rimmer action sequence and CGI funeral scene highlight this absolutely incredible episode. 4/4
Ouroboros-
With Rimmer gone, for the most part, this episode was under close scrutiny. I'm pleased to say that it more than holds its own. Kochanski is a fine character, seemingly taking Kryten's straightman role while the robot takes up Rimmer's mantle as funniest guy on ship. The show needs a straightman, so this shift doesn't bother me. Very inventive plot, if a little wierd. Funny too, Rimmer's one scene is the best. There's a great Starbug chase sequence in this episode and also some nice character moments once again. Kryten's jealousy is very funny. So what if he whines - he's done it before - 'Polymorph' etc. Ultimately though, this episode proves that Red Dwarf can survive without Rimmer. 2.5/4

The second installment of Red Dwarf VII. Probably the weakest video available, but worth it for the Munchkin Song and some nice character moments.
Duct Soup-
A charming little character-driven episode. A contrived plot, but that is neccessary - we can delve deeper and find out more about Kochanski's character. This episode contains some wonderful stories that, while not as funny as those in 'Marooned' are very charming. It's such a pity the 'Squeaky Gibson Story' was left off. Some really funny lines in this episode. Negatives: the whole pipes thing at the start is irritating and certainly not genius comedy, the conclusion is also less than satisfying. 2/4
Blue-
An episode that suffers from some weak dialogue. However, the character scenes, including the Rimmer flashback sequences are delightful. The fantastic kiss scene being the best of them. Yes, The Munchkin Song is incredible and one of the highlights of the whole series. 3/4
Beyond A Joke-
Robert Llewellyn's episode is, sad to say, rather weak. A pathetic plot with gelfs etc. Are there no other monsters in the Red Dwarf universe? Some totally unsuitable music and poor dialogue. That Able guy is just sooo irritating. Some good lines however and the Tank sequence is funny, at least there's some action. There's also a fantastic scene in the middle between Kryten and Lister where they discuss the robot's creator. Good special effects and a nice turn by Don Henderson. 1.5/4

Well. The first time I saw this series I loved it. The brilliant story-line, it had me splitting my sides with laughter. But with all the new re-mastered scenes it turns the poor 80's blue screens into the fantastic computerised space and ship graphics. Even though some scenes are cut out to make room for the effects it's still brilliant. The episode "Parallel Universe" is one of my all time favourites. With Holly's "hop drive" the crew are sent in to a female-equivilent universe were Nelle Armstrong was the first person to walk on the moon and Wilma Shakespear was a famous playwrite. Also, can you imagine the horror of a female Rimmer and pregnant Lister? When Holly is replaced by Queeg 500 the crew are made to work for food ad it drives them insane. But can you have an April fool in July? Stasis Leak is another side-splitting episode when the crew manage to go back in time 3 million years before the Red Dwarf crew were wiped out. With a plan to bring Kochanski into the future and Rimmer trying to save his life to keep for Sunday best it's a must see video!

This set is for all those who didn't get the chance to share the cult following of the first three series of Red Dwarf. Fifteen hours of non-stop laughs following Lister, Rimmer, Holly and all the others that tag along throughout their voyage through space. Okay, so Red Dwarf's come along way since Lister was trapped in Stasis (you'll know what I'm talking about when you see it) , but it hasn't changed that much from the superb scripts and storylines of the first three series. I'm fifteen now but I was too young to appreciate Red Dwarf when it was first on. Only now do I realise what I was missing. Watching it just makes you proud to be British! This is definately a fantastic buy from our folks at Amazon!

For 6 years Red Dwarf was one of the most consistently funny TV shows in TV history.
Perhaps Red Dwarf series 6 was beginning to show signs of running out of steam - too many repeating old gags (Dwayne Dibley and Polymorphs) and the same old space core directives over and over. Still funny though. After a long gap and the loss of one of the writers we finally got the return of Red Dwarf series 7. We can clearly see the difference in the two writers in the Red Dwarf books the writers wrote on their own. Doug Naylor's "Last Human" is a good story but not very funny. Rob Grant's "Backwards" is quite amusing but just recycles old TV episodes. Red Dwarf 7 is written by Doug Naylor on his own. Together the writers work very well but they seem to stumble when left alone.
The first things we notice about Red Dwarf 7 are the new computer generated effects and lack of canned laughter. It's even filmed on cinema film rather than video tape for bright colors and an expensive look. The new effects were mildly shocking at first - a lot of the charm of the old series was that it was obviously filmed in the BBC canteen and the props were painted cycle helmets and old computers they found dumped in skips. It a whole new big budget Red Dwarf and a lot of fans remain unsure if it works. It's so different it's almost a different show altogether. It does look very good. Once you get over the shock of the new look the first episode Tika To Ride is quite interesting. We get a very good time travelling story with some funny moments. There are some amusing moments but it is not as funny as before. The story is the main focus rather than the humour which is strange for a so-called comedy show.
