Big? It's like two Badly Parked Volkswagens!,
This review is from: Red Dwarf: Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Red Dwarf peeked with Series 3, while 2 was wonderful and 6 in particular in later years were superb, this is where the show hit the heights. There are many changes, the crew have moved into the newly decontaminated officers quarters, Kryten has been rescued and rebuilt and Holly has changed himself into a woman.
The episodes simply sparkle, Backwards includes one of the alltime great comedy moments when Cat disappears 'into the bushes' and the legendary bar room 'tidy'. Marooned contains the alltime best one liner when Lister polishes off the SECOND to last item of food on Starbug. Polymorph is brilliant with the introduction of 'sharmy kebab diablo' served with Lister's classy new dinner set. Timeslides is fantastic, featuring the confrontation with 'Mr October' from one of Rimmer's magazines, and it continues with Bodyswap, as Rimmer models the new 'hernia prevention belt', much to Liser's disgust before the series climaxes with The Last Day, where Kryten comes of age thanks to a little help from his friends, and Petersen's spoils from planet leave on Miranda.
All in all, this eries is 3 hours of non stop laughs and features the show at its best. Start with 1 and 2 of course, but this was the mad world of Grant Naylor at its finest!
