Editorial Reviews

By the end of this fourth year, Red Dwarf had completed its metamorphosis from a modest studio-bound sitcom with a futuristic premise to a full-blown science-fiction series, complete with a relatively lavish (by BBC standards) special-effects budget, more impressive sets, and more location shooting. Despite the heavier emphasis on sci-fi, the character-based comedy remained as sharp as ever. Witness the Cat's reaction to Lister's pus-filled exploding head; Kryten's devastatingly sarcastic defense of Rimmer; or the classic scene that opens the series, Lister teaching Kryten to lie.

In "Camille," Robert Llewellyn's real-life wife plays a female mechanoid who transforms into something else entirely, as does the episode, which by the end becomes a delightful skit on Casablanca. "DNA" is heavily sci-fi, with lots of techno-speak about a matter transmogrifier and a RoboCop homage--but in typical Dwarf fashion, turns out to be all about curry. "Justice" sees Rimmer on trial for the murder of the entire crew, while Lister attempts to evade a psychotic cyborg. Holly gets her IQ back in "White Hole," but wastes time debating bread products with the toaster. "Dimension Jump" introduces dashing doppelganger Ace Rimmer--he was to return in later series, with diminishingly funny results. Here his appearance is all the better for its apparent improbability. Finally, "Meltdown" goes on location (to a park in North London) where waxdroids of historical characters (played by a miscellaneous selection of cheesy look-alikes) are at war. Only intermittently successful, this episode is really memorable for Chris Barrie's tour-de-force performance as Rimmer becomes a crazed, Patton-esque general. --Mark Walker

Product Description

Boldly going where no one in their right mind would ever go, this hilarious, cult Sci Fi spoof takes you on a joyride three million years into the future. Those ubiquitous anti-heroes of space travel - Lister, Rimmer, Cat and Kryten - are following up their spectacularly successful series I & II DVD's. In series IV, Ace Rimmer arrives from an alternate dimension, Kryten falls in love and Lister's curry tries to kill him in six more slices of classic Red Dwarf chaos.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only a goit faced smeghead doesnt like Red Dwarf. February 22, 2005
Red Dwarf is a great comedy series that is a toss up between a sci fi comedy, or a comedy sci fi. For me, it's a comedy set in space, sci fi sounds to geeky to describe this hillarious and long running series.

season 3 & 4 is even funnier then season 1 & 2. and has some hillarious and all time great comedy moments. if you cant enjoy Red Dwarf, you must be a total smeg head.

- EGGS -
disc 1

- Easter egg - Literally.
Accessing this one is different to your average egg. On the main menu, select the "select episode". Now, as the animation is travelling through the corridor, just before it turns right, where one of those droid things are, press enter, there is nothing to select, just press enter, and you will access an Easter egg scene.

- Comic Relief-
Go to the episode selections. And go into the menu for DNA. Once in there, click on "Next". You should now see a chicken drawn into the menu in the middle of the screen. Highlight the `menu' text and press up; you should now have highlighted the chicken's egg. Click ok to watch a scene of the cast doing a commercial for charity.

Disc 2
- Animated Commentary-
Select the "extra features" button from the main menu. Then when it asks if you want to view the animated, or text menu. Select the text menu. On that menu, highlight the "back" text button, and press left on your remote. You will highlight that warping device. Click enter on it and you will watch the producers visual commentary, presented in a flash style cartoon.

these seasons keep getting funnier then the previous

5.0 out of 5 stars "Lister to Red Dwarf" January 2, 2004
Well, I've seen these episodes a countless number of times thanks to PBS and I must say that each season is better to the one before. Although, season III is really hard to top, season IV comes really close! There really isn't much I can tell you about this show if you've already seen the first three seasons. But, I can recomend this and the three before (and two afterwards, once they become avalible) to everybody who a) loves sci-fi or b) everybody who looks British humor (the only REAL sort of humor, if you ask me)

By Jacob
The crew of the Red Dwarf are back with series four. Dave Lister last man alive and the last man to eat indian food. Arnold J. Rimmer ships hologram and the only man to fail his astronavagation exams more times then anyone in the history of the space core. The Cat whose wardrobes are so vast they take up most of the hold space on the ship. Kryten he maybe the cleaning mechanoid, but he's also the brains of the crew. And Holly the insanse ships computer that still has to beat her head against the screen to figure her sums. Togeather they travel deep space in search of adventure, action and hopefully a way back to Earth.
This time around the crew encounter a gelf that becomes one's perfect lover. A alien ship that can change DNA and for one of the crew its a step up! After finding a spacepod they discover it was on its way to a penal colony. An experiment has turned Holly back into the super genius she and the crew has to deal with a whitehole. Rimmer geets to meet an alternate version of himself and he's called "Ace" Rimmer test pilot in the space core. Rimmer wants to be very sick now. The crew with the aid of a device that Kryten managed to complete has traveled to a world where waxdriods have come to life and are fighting for thier very exsitance in a war of good versus evil. Will the crew help them?
All this plus many more laughs then you know what to do with. So come onboard and check out what the crew are up to in series four.

4.0 out of 5 stars Four 4 IV October 5, 2006
Series 4 of Red Dwarf, though just as colourful and watchable, isn't one of my favourite series. The dialogue isn't as punchy, the acting's a little hammier at times, plus there's hardly as much character development as there was in the first three series. The comic and dramatic timing seems to be rushed in a few places too. It doesn't matter too much, I can watch these episodes again and again, it's just not the series I'll usually reach for if I'd like to watch some Red Dwarf.

In this series of the sci-fi comedy show, space slob Lister, stiff and selfish hologram Rimmer, vainglorious Cat and the neurotic Kryten the mechanoid continue to roam the galaxy, stopping at something interesting in each and every story.

Here's a rundown of the six episodes of the series:

"Camille" sees Kryten discovering a marooned spaceship and a female mechanoid, the same type as himself, named Camille. He quickly falls in love, and as Camille is taken on board Red Dwarf, so do the rest of the crew. A human, a hologram and a cat falling in love with a female mechanoid? What on Earth do THEY see in her?

Another spacecraft floats their way in "DNA". This one is abandoned, and tangled up in strange grows. A three headed skeleton is discovered, a skeleton that was once human. Something has gone wrong here, and thanks to the Cat, something else will go wrong too, something to do with the genetic structure of the crew...

"Justice" is probably one of my favorites in this series. We see Lister sick with space mumps, we see Rimmer put on trial for accidentally killing the original Red Dwarf crew 3 million years ago, and we get to see some fancy spaceboots that walk by themselves.
