Space battles, quantum entanglement, and love triangles with snack dispensers, are just some of the problems facing the boys as they return on the small rouge one.
Rimmer receives an SOS distress call from an old foe and is suddenly faced with the dilemma of his life. Lister grapples with the problem of being his own father, gets romantically involved with snack dispensers 23 and 34, while Kryten and Cat become quantum entangled forcing them to do everything in unison. The posse also find themselves marooned in 23 AD where they rescue a famous historical figure with a beard.
Packed with over 150 minutes of extras including an exclusive making-of documentary, deleted scenes and a brand-spanking-new collection of ‘Smeg Ups’.
DVD comes with special collector’s reversible sleeve.
Red Dwarf X is a genuine triumph. Following the critically maligned previous run of the show, Red Dwarf: Back To Earth, this is the programme back where it belongs: with six episodes, filmed in front of a studio audience. Written and directed by the show’s co-creator, Doug Naylor, Red Dwarf X reunites Chris Barrie, Craig Charles, Robert Llewellyn and Danny John-Jules. They step back aboard the Red Dwarf ship of the title, and while Red Dwarf X has its bumpier episodes, there are a couple of cracking installments in the series, and a real sense that the show is back on form.
Take the opening episode, Trojan. This not only re-establishes the characters, it also injects plenty of laughs, and has a solid story underpinning it, too. Furthermore, the final episode, The Beginning, may be a little divisive, but there’s still a reason why many Red Dwarf fans list it as one of their favourites.
The disc release brings together all the episodes, as you’d expect, of Red Dwarf X, but there’s a lot more you get for your money besides. The centrepiece is an excellent, comprehensive documentary that’s both feature-length, and goes into great detail on the making of the show. There are umpteen outtakes to enjoy, too, and deleted scenes, with an optional commentary track from Doug Naylor. The documentary, however, is the highlight, and one of the finest extra features for a TV disc release in some time. It’s a fitting tribute to a series that’s proven there’s a lot of life in Red Dwarf yet… --Jon Foster

This time however a lot of the problems I had with Back To Earth mainly it being a series of barely connected skits masquerading as a story and it frankly not being funny, are not the case here. I watched the whole 6 eps on Dave and my wife bought me this box set for Christmas.
Trojan starts us off in fine style. There's a distress call and it turns out to be from Rimmer's brother. As Rimmer prepares to cover up his staus to seem more impressive, Lister is just trying to buy an automatic drink stirrer from automatic call service.
Fathers and Suns sees a new ship computer Pree appear at the same time that Lister has been trying to forge a father/son relationship with himself by getting blasted on Gelf hooch and leaving messages for himself. This idea is a very new twist on something that was set up a few series ago. The comedy is genuinely being created out of SF concepts.
Lemons sees accidental time travel dump the crew in the Holy Land just at the same time as there's a man called Jesus. Is this Life of Brian territory? You'll have to watch for yourself.
In Entangled Lister loses badly in a poker game, has he lost both Rimmer and his life?
In Dear Dave, a long lost mail pod offers a letter rom an Ex-girlfriend now long dead, telling him he may be a father.
Rimmer's troubled childhood is revisited in The Beginning and it may hold the clue to defeating a band of simulants.
The episodes split into ensemble pieces or episodes centered on Lister or Rimmer. Cat based episodes have traditionally been found difficult but possibly future series could base something around Kryten. Holly and Kochanski are not present.Read more ›
For anyone who hasn't seen this yet, it's hilarious. The guys' acting has improved over the years and their humor is (if possible) even more witty and in tune than where they left off. If anything both the series and the actors got better with age.
The responses of the live audience are great to hear, and the computer animated bits only add to the fun, instead of distracting from the acting too much.
All in all, five stars!
As usual, the cast commentaries are the star extra, and as usual all the contributors do so with obvious enjoyment and gusto! And yes, they really did build a working battery out of lemons (science geeks Robert Llewellyn and Chris Barrie were never going to let that episode go by without testing out the theory!) and they sound like a couple of excited boys with their 'Boys Own' manual when they talk about it on that particular commentary!
So yes, whilst it's not quite five star material (or perhaps that's just my perception having just watching series 4, 5 and 6 back to back!) it's definitely got the old Red Dwarf feel to it, and hits the mark more than it doesn't. For a few pounds it's definitely worth adding it to the collection.
For me it is almost, ALMOST, as good as anything they have ever done and I would say that the laughs themselves are amongst the biggest the series has produced.
This time the series has done the right thing and gone back to its roots; Red Dwarf was never really about the locations or the special effects, it was about the marvellous interplay between the motley crew and I am simply over the moon that the writers have concentrated on that once more.
This series has always had that rare thing, true chemistry between its leads and I am pleased to report that it is better than ever.
The makers clearly know how to press all the right buttons and nolstagia plays no small part in the success of this latest outing; the music, the shots of the ship travelling through space, the sets, the costumes and even the credits would not look out of place in the 'prime' episodes some twenty years a go (my God that makes me feel OLD!!!).
The stories are very good, the script is excellent with one joke after another and many of them are genuine belly laughs; a good example that made me laugh out loud came in the episode 'Entangled' (episode four) when during the introduction Lister starts a 'fire' and then tries to put it out, it was simply brilliant and 'classic dwarf' as they say.
Although the cast have aged they have aged pretty well, with The Cat in particular appearing almost like he hasn't aged a day in some scenes (I'm not including Kryten because he cheats!).
The full episode listing is:
2. Fathers and Suns
5. Dear Dave
6. The Beginning
