I watched this show in the 90s and it's still a laugh.
Michael W Jones
The "Rimmer vs. Lister" dynamic is replaced by "Kryten jealous of Kochanski."
Niugui Cilantron
I can't wait for the next season to see what other mischief can be created.

Red Dwarf Series VII is very different than any Red Dwarf to come before it. Rob Grant, half of the team that till then had created and written all Red Dwarf episodes, left the show and the strain on remaining writer Doug Naylor clearly shows. Some of the writing slack is taken up by others, including Robert Llewellyn (Kryten), who has written a few successful books on his own, but the feel of the show is never the same from here on out. The humor is now less dense and arguably less sharp at times, and the situations in which the characters find themselves often do not have the same comedic quality of the older shows. Additionally, Chloe Annett is introduced as Kochanski. While competent, she is far different than any of the actesses that originated the part like C.P. Grogan, and her addition to the cast takes time away from funnier established characters, like the Cat, who is brilliantly played by Danny John-Jules. To add to the list of unwanted changes, Chris Barrie was not fully available for this series and so is absent much of the time.

That said, if you love Red Dwarf, you'll probably feel obligated to own these later shows anyway. There are still occasional brilliant moments, and the cast is still funny and committed to their roles, even if the writing is now very uneven. Series VII is better than Series VIII, which takes Red Dwarf even further away from it's original comedic fundamentals.

As in Series VI, in Series VII the crew are still living aboard Starbug and still chasing the trail of their larger mother ship, the Red Dwarf. Episodes in Series VII are:

1. Tikka To Ride

Lister ignores Kryten's warnings about the hazards of time travel and takes the crew on a quest for more curry that will change history.

So Red Dwarf 7 is almost upon us, this one being one of the most debatable ones of the entire series. Grant Naylor becomes half the man he used to be in this series (Grant Naylor is a made up person from Rob Grant and Doug Naylor, the two writers of Red Dwarf who have a bit of a spat and split up so only one of them writes this series), Rimmer decides to leave (Chris Barrie was in others things and decided to leave) and Kochanski comes back, but in a different form (Claire Grogran was on MTV and they get Chloe Annette instead).

This doesn't sound a great start to begin with, and to be honest with you I do think this is the weakest series so far. However I do think they other series are all fantastic so being the weakest means this is only good (of course I should point out I am a major fan!)

The episodes are:

1. Tikka To Ride

2. Stoke Me A Clipper

3. Ouroboros

4. Duct Soup

5. Blue

6. Beyond a Joke

7. Epideme

8. Nanarchy

This series takes Red Dwarf in a different way to the rest - of course it would have to with Rimmer leaving and Kochanski coming back - but I still enjoyed it.

The depressing thing about this series is that after this one we only have the final series 8 to look forward to and hope that they manage to finish the film by the time that is out so we can enjoy more Dwarf!

Overall 4/5, less then the other series (5/5 for all the rest IMHO) but still very funny and better then most other series out there.

My favourite episodes are probably the Tikka to Ride, where they run out of curry and travel back in time to Dallas, 1961 and beam into a book depository...

I didn't know anything about the background production of the show until I read all the reviews here. I only know from what I watched when this series was released on PBS. What I noticed were the following:

More colorful sets

Much better special effects

A new female lead which really helps balance out the show

8 episodes instead of 6

The only negative was Chris Barrie (Rimmer) missing in a few episodes

So I really don't understand what these people are talking about how the show being drastically different. The show drastically changed during season 3 as well with the introduction of Kryten. And then did another change during season 4 when Red Dwarf was lost. I mean look at the Cat, he changed from a fish obsessed narcisist to an effective pilot of Starbug with a keen nose sensor. To me these changes kept the show upbeat with more variety. I absolutely love Seasons 7&8 and they're my favorite seasons because we now had the lead characters interacting with more than just a single new person per episode. The show has always changed drastically from season to season. Season 7&8 was no different. And I don't think it ever lost its magic.

...Which isn't to say that it is necessarily "bad." It just means that, all arguments aside, the only people who would be buying the Red Dwarf DVD's are fans anyway, so you probably have your own opinion of the this season. With that being said, I originally had planned to stop buying the season's after Series 6 (my favorite, along with Series 4). I always felt the show should have ended after Series 6, with the irony of the crew killing themselves. But anyway... After talking with my girlfriend, another life-long fan, I decided to pick up Series 7 to further complete my collection.

Regardless of how you feel about Series 7, I gave the item 5 stars because it is put together fantastically. There are tons of extras, including extended, remastered versions of three episodes... So much stuff that they had to make it three discs. So yeah, if you like Red Dwarf and Series 7, then this DVD set is worth the money. I'm not going to comment about the quality or changes in Series 7, since everyone else before me has already pointed out all of its pros and cons just fine.
