Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
Time travel, parallel universes, and a host of other sci-fi tropes become fodder for comedy in the BBC's wacky, long-running series Red Dwarf. Writers-creators Rob Grant and Doug Naylor mold a sci-fi sitcom that follows the exploits of Lister Craig Charles, a deep-space miner who emerges from stasis 3 million years in the future to find that his only companions are Rimmer Chris Barrie, a hologram of his dead bunkmate; Cat Danny John-Jules, a humanoid who evolved from his pet cat; and Holly Norman Lovett, the ship's computer. The style of the show evolved radically during its 8-series run. Series 1 1987 finds the show working out its premises on rudimentary gray sci-fi sets, but the basic Lister-Rimmer odd-couple dynamic is already clicking. Although the creators cite Dark Star as their inspiration, the bizarre sci-fi scenarios these early episodes plunge into are more reminiscent of Red Dwarf's BBC cousin, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Subsequent Red Dwarf series would move beyond the basic sitcom approach, adding a few additional characters along the way. But the first two series available in a DVD 2-pack started the cult phenomenon and stand up as one of the oddest -- and funniest -- comedies ever to come out of England.

    One of my favorite British Shows

    Having always been a fan of Red Dwarf, I was delighted to find the first season (and others) The DVD's (2) contain all the original episodes, and lots of "behind the scenes" info you just don't get otherwise. If you're a fan of British Comedy this one is "smegging" good fun.

    Its about time!

    I have only seen 8 episodes of this. By the time that I realized that I was a diehard fan, they took it off the air! I was so disappointed, now they have the DVD series!

    Best BBC show ever !

    I started watching Red dwarf when I was in the Army, it came on about 2 in the morning on the local PBS station, I was instantly a big fan. The Lister, Rimmer duo is the greatest teamup since Lauryl and Hardy.

    Weekly Sitdown

    My family would watch this show on BBC every Saturday night, and if not, there was always a tape in the VCR. After the show,we'd sing the closing song. Personally, I'd watch anything about Red Dwarf.

    Finally!

    Oh my god, this is one of the most well written sit coms ever! I have been waiting forever for them to release this to dvd and finally it is coming out. Its great English humor with a healthy serving of paradoxical twists...great fun!
