4.0 out of 5 stars At the risk of sounding blasphemous..., 23 Aug 2007
This review is from: Hyperdrive - Series 1 & 2 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
... I have to say that all the comparisons between Hyperdrive and Red Dwarf are silly, starting with the fact that Hyperdrive seems - to me, at least - a much better, more sophisticated, subtle and funnier show. I'm sorry, I know Red Dwarf is almost a religion for some (and I happen to enjoy Red Dwarf, too) but if it's true that the Red Dwarf team broke new ground in a lot of stuff, it's also true that sometimes their comedy was a bit too broad, loud and crowd-pleasing. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but it's almost criminal to dismiss Hyperdrive as a sub-Red Dwarf, when it's in fact the most cool and imaginative sci-fi comedy since Douglas Adams, filled with the amazing little details we expect from an Andy Riley - Kevin Cecil work and ending up like a live-action and very british Futurama. I'm sorry, but I just can't understand why some people hate this show so much. The cast is terrific, the writing and direction are great and it even manages to have a very nice, comic-bookish look without being an expensive production.
