Works better as one extended episode
on 8 August 2016
I'm a massive Red Dwarf fan so naturally I was disappointed when this was first shown over three nights on Dave. The cgi sets and cgi scutters just seemed out of place and like a short cut had been taken. The episodes were shallow and lacked their own identity and the same can still be said for the DVD. However, watching the directors cut where all three episodes are combined into one extended show it works so much better. For years I held back on completing my collection as I didn't think Back to Earth was a worthy addition to the series. Now I've seen it as just a longer special episode I can appreciate it more and am pleased to have completed the collection of Series 1-10.
