4.0 out of 5 stars A great start to series VII, 5 Dec. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Red Dwarf: Series 7 - Part 1 [VHS] [1988] (VHS Tape)
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
