This mini series is a victim of its own publicity. Expectations were raised so high that it was bound to disappoint many fans. I had my first reservations when they announced they were making a three part special, as opposed to a full series. What is clear from series 8 is that 2 or 3 parters don't work as far as Red Dwarf is concerned. It slows the plot down and for me there is a sense of trying to pad out the episodes with weak gags. If viewed as a one off feature, which this DVD has an option for, it works so much better. By ending episode 1 just as the plot starts to get going kills the momentum and by the time its picked up again in the second episode its killed once more.

As a story i think its very imaginative and entertaining. Yes it harks back to earlier series and isn't totally original but i thought the twist was constructed very well and sets it up perfectly for a future series. I also thought the serious scenes between Lister and Kochanski were beautifully played. In order to get the most out of this though it must be watched in one go.

'What is it?!'

'It's the equivalent of one of those overly self-referential Christmas specials that aren't actually as funny as the regular series (When 'Carbug' pulled up at the Rovers Return at the end of episode 1, I died a little inside)'

'What is it?!'

'It's a surprisingly heartfelt Lister and Kochanski story, with Craig Charles providing some highly touching moments'

'What is it?!'

'It's a comedy/drama hybrid that tries too hard to be both, ending up being an emotionally confusing experience'

'What is it?!'

'It's a self-deprecating look at the series and its legacy, which can be viewed as a humorous aside to the series itself'

'What is it?!'

'It's a story that uses a number of unfunny 'aliens/time-travellers in an unfamiliar place' cliches. I mean, Kryten talking to a post box because he thinks it's a robot?! Purlease...'

'What is it?!'

'It's a surprisingly un-padded, cleverly structured three episode story with some nice DVD freeze-frame gags that are picked up through repeated viewings'

'What is it?!'

'It's a science fiction story that is heavily weighed down with genre references and head-twisting digressions, making the light-hearted comedy elements seem out of place, and alienating the series from those who just want a good, well-scripted laugh'

'What is it?!'

'An extension of the cinematic aspects that made Series VII both so brave and controversial, and probably as close to 'Red Dwarf: the movie' as we are ever likely to get. As such, its an initially jarring departure from Series 8'

'What is it?!'

'It's an unbalanced feature length comedy that nonetheless features some very funny scenes (along with some that just don't hit the mark)'

'OH! An enjoyable but self-conscious T.V. movie! Well why didn't you say?!'

I am a huge Red Dwarf Fan and hearing there was a new recently made mini series, I was really looking forward to see these actors reunited.

We live in an age of remakes and sometimes surprise returns of well known series/actors trying to recapture the peaks of glory. Many attempts in recent years of making a huge comeback of recreating nostalgia or continuing a series/franchise put to rest long ago , have been a mixed bag of decent effort and Epic Fail. So one has to keep an open mind nowadays and except returns of old greats to differ greatly from it's past success.

Luckily for Red Dwarf fans, things aren't that bad because many of the people behind the show are still involved , as well as the 4 main actors ! Infact my heart gives a huge salute to see them back together. It's actually very heart warming to see them play the same roles again without problems after such a long period of absence.

Unfortunately even though it's great to seem the old team back , it's not among the best Red Dwarf stories told. It gets a while to get into it ( Well with Red Dwarf having left us years ago , that's a given ) but later on it shows to have the makings of the more classic style of Red Dwarf Formula and the series classic trademark humorously confusing yet clever scientific explanations and twists.

This is still a great adventure with some fresh new twists, along with the usual great stuff you'd expect from Red dwarf.
One thing to note is that special effects are greatly improved and amazing to watch ..... which is a big step forward from the humble days of bad special effects budget BBC that we loved and gave great charm to the older series.
There are a few scenes that are particularly enjoyable to watch thanks to these modern advances .

The Jupiter Mining Corporation ship "The Red Dwarf" has been drifting in space for 3 million years. It's only inhabitants are Dave Lister, the last remaining human in the universe; Arnold Rimmer, a hologram of his dead bunkmate, a creature that evolved from Dave's pet cat and Kryten, a Series 4000 service mechanoid.

BBC2's sci-fi comedy first aired in 1988 and has produced ten series; it is distinguished by it's laddish humour, its almost constant leading cast over it's (so-far) 24 year run and its cheap and cheerful production style. It started off as a somewhat disregarded denizen of BBC2, quickly gained a cult following then sold out to the man and went mainstream, went into suspended animation, returned, jumped the shark, got remastered, went back into stasis and was subsequently revived on a different channel (Dave). Bit of a rollercoaster ride, really, as Holly would have said.

Back to Earth represented a return to the telly after a 9 year hiatus, airing on Dave in 2009 on Dave as a three part mini series. The crew of the Dwarf find themselves transported back to 21st century Earth only to discover that they are characters in a hugely popular sci-fi comedy series, and are about to be killed off by the writers. Clearly they have to do something about this, so set off on a journey to track down The Creator and plead for a new series.

Now. There's good and bad to all this...

The BBC series ended on a low with SVIII. I won't go into details, but while I could happily watch SI to VII back to back on continuous loop, I could, just as happily, remove the last two discs from my box set (Red Dwarf: SI - SVIII) and use them as drinks mats or bird scarers.
