Anyway. Red Dwarf 8... Not the best series by a long shot but still very enjoyable. The DVD seems to fix alot of the problems with the original broadcasts. For example, Back In The Red parts I-III can be viewed as one long episode. This cut makes alot more sense and helps the continuity run though alot better. The same also applies for Pete Parts I and II.
Upon re-watching the whole series back to back (i have nothing better to do,ok!) you do start to see alot of the jokes you missed first time round and realise that the scripting is actually very clever.
Although the series is only a three star (compared to series 4/5/6) the dvd bonus features bring it up to a 4 star.
The Tank original documentary is another spot on 90 minute run through of the episodes behind the scenes and the like, talking to all the major players involved and one or two minor ones.
The Comedy Connections program (a brilliant program on BBC1) has some brilliant (and cringeworthy) early footage of chris barry and danny john jules in his maid marion and her merry men days...
Other than these there is the usual fare such as smeg ups,deleted scenes, story boards etc.
What does let these other wise fantastic extras down are the menu's. Set in the bunk in the tank, they're slow to respond and actually finding what your looking for is a nightmare sometimes.

All in All, the series is good but not great though the extras make it a Four star package.

And the scutter is pretty cool too

Whereas the emphasis was more on drama in series VII, the focus here is much more on comedy. Sole writer Doug Naylor had been involved in the remastering of the first three series and it is evident in this series how the show was to an extent returned to its situation comedy roots though aspects of the heavy science fiction remained. The show returned to being filmed in front of a studio audience though some higher budgetary remained with the sophisticated sets and computer generated imagery (CGI). Although I prefer the charming models of the first six series, unlike other reviewers I feel that the CGI is okay. It's not amazing, but it is good and better than series VII's shoddy CGI. Other signs of the shift towards pure situation comedy is through the return of Rimmer, resurrected by the nanobots and bearing all his earlier pre-radiation leak pomposity, deviousness and cowardice. This leads to the return of the Rimmer-Lister relationship dynamic and the return of the bunk room scenes (not seen since series III or IV) is very welcome as they lead to all manner of entertaining dialogue and one-liners. Another thing that has improved greatly from VII (IMHO the weakest series, though good) is the dialogue is back to its best with the constant flow of hilarious gags.

The opening bunkroom scene is a sensational start to the series. Series VIII IMHO has four great episodes which are as funny and entertaining as the first six series. The opening two stories are an enjoyable comedy romp with aspects of the more prominent sci-fi of series III to VI (e.g. the use of the positive viruses from series V and the artificial reality suite). Highlights of the humour include Starbug's encounter with a rat, Holly's subsequent observation and Kryten's farcical psychiatric evaluation.

This series promised a return to the pre series 7 glory days by being filmed in front of a live studio audience together with the heralded return of Chris Barrie to the ensemble. After the critical reception given to the cinematic style of series 7, perhaps it was inevitable it would revert back. On paper it was probably a good idea to increase the on board crew numbers and have larger upgraded sets. It would have worked as a novel but hasn't translated as well as expected to the small screen. The dynamics of a small eclectic group were diluted with Red Dwarf populated by so many anonymous bodies. The basketball game in Pete 1 and the audience in Krytie TV serve to illustrate this. Except for Captain McDonald and the pantomime performance of the Captain of the prison guards, the other characters are forgettable. When first broadcast Series 8 was a roller coaster ride. The first episode, Back in the Red, opens in a truly thrilling style with unforgettable moments including the genuinely hilarious rat sequence culminating in Starbug's spectacular crash. The whole episode is satisfying but Part 2 has to be the most disappointing episode of Red Dwarf ever only marginally beating part 3 to this claim. The story arc would benefit from being compressed into two episodes rather than protracted over three. Cassandra and Krytie TV are genuinely funny episodes and the highlights of this series. Pete 1 & 2 manages to combine amusing with lacklustre. The series conclusion, Only the Good, finally comes close to a story from the glory days. Overall the problem is that the science fiction has largely been shelved to concentrate on the situation comedy. But it is paramount that both elements are present in good proportion for Red Dwarf to succeed.Read more ›

As mentioned in the majority of the other reviews it is not considered to be the best of the Red Dwarf Series, however somewhat better than Series 7 in my opinion but that is all these reviews are - opinions.
If you don't know, Series 7 & 8 were not filmed with a studio audience and also used a different filming method which gave the show a more "feature film" appearance and many people did not like this. If you are considering buying this and don't really know much about Red Dwarf, start from the beginning is my advice and work your way up to fully appreciate this greatness of this show. Series 8 isn't the best but it certainly isn't as terrible as many make it out to be.
