Product Description

Red Dwarf: V (DVD)

Amazon.com

It's brown alert time all over again for Red Dwarf fans with the fifth season of the much-loved U.K. sci-fi/comedy series. Episode-wise, it's business as usual for the crew of the Red Dwarf--that is, if one considers encountering an alien squid that squirts a despair-inducing hallucinogen ("Back to Reality," later voted the best episode of the series by British viewers--and Stephen Hawking!), evil (and not particularly bright) versions of the crew ("Demons and Angels"), a virus that causes insanity ("Quarantine"), and a trip to a moon created entirely from the mind of the insufferable hologram Rimmer ("Terrorform") business as usual. In short, it's six hilarious episodes, highlighted by the typically terrific writing of creators Rob Grant and Doug Naylor (who also direct two episodes). As with the previous deluxe DVD releases, Series V features a wealth of supplemental features, the most intriguing of which is a look at the failed attempt to recreate the show in America (with U.K. cast member Robert Llewellyn and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's Terry Farrell as Cat). Also included are cast and fan commentaries, featurettes on the show's "science" and villains, special effects tests, blooper reels, and a sampling of Grant and Naylor's BBC 4 radio sketch "Dave Hollins, Space Cadet," which served as the inspiration for Red Dwarf. Dedicated DVD owners will also be rewarded by Easter eggs lurking throughout the menus. --Paul Gaita

Red Dwarf Series 5 is filled with wonderful character exploration and insightful social commentary, yet delivers the same hilarious and dense level of humor as the series that came before it. Holoship gives a wonderful, humanizing look at Rimmer beyond the annoying exterior and Back to Reality is a tremendous look at the motivations and inner workings of all of the major characters in one of the funniest Red Dwarf episodes ever; it also delivers a delightful plot twist the first time you see it. Series 5 reveals a great comedy show delivering some of it's very best writing yet. Episodes include:

1. Holoship - Rimmer leaves Red Dwarf to go to the Holoship Enlightenment where he must compete with the best of the Space Corps to remain aboard. Everything he wants is on this ship. Will he make the cut and find true love as well?

2. The Inquisitor - The Inquisitor travels time and erases the unworthy from existence and the Red Dwarf crew, having not led the most productive lives, are on his list.

3. Terrorform - Rimmer becomes a prisoner of his own nightmares and must be rescued by the rest of the crew.

4. Quarantine - Contagion from a viral research centre causes Rimmer to force the rest of the crew to spend twelve weeks in quarantine. But who is really infected?

5. Demons & Angels- When the crew meet their evil doubles, things get unpleasant and the actors get to play interesting twisted versions of their usual characters.

6. Back to Reality - In a great plot twist that I won't give away here, the crew of Red Dwarf find that all things are not as they seem. Will life ever be the same?

Format: DVD
Well, the DVD comes with everything it says it does. I think I'll skip a review about the episodes and bonus features and just tell you where some hidden eggs are.

Disc 1 -

- Back To Reality, Animated Commentary -

Go to the episode selection menu. Go down to 3 "Terrorform" and then press right. You should have highlighted `drive room'. Then press down. That parts pretty simple to work out. Press down and highlight that glove. Press enter/ok. It will now display a pad to enter a secret GD code. Highlight each number, followed by enter... 1, 4, 5.It will access the hidden Easter egg of the creators talking about the episode "back to reality" in a cartoon format. Looks like it was created with macromedia Flash.

- What the smeg did they eat? -

Go to the episode selection menu, just like above. And go into the "Quarantine" selection. Then once in there, go to the "next" option and press enter to view the second menu page for the episode. You should notice a penguin kind of drawing in the bottom/middle of the menu now. Highlight the "menu" option and press up to highlight the penguin, or whatever the smeg it is and press enter on him. I won't tell you what it access, you'll have to see it for yourself.

Disc 2 -

- The Accent Question -

Go to the subtitles menu. Click up on "on/off". Then press up again and you will have selected a hidden icon in the shape of Holly's head. Press enter and you will see a little interview with what's his name about Jan Leeve's and where her Manchester accent on Frasier may well have come from.

Never before has sci-fi and comedy worked out for the mass audiences. And since "Red Dwarf", it hasn't happened. The characters diverse in personality, the sci-fi concepts rich, the humor is riotously successful on many levels. What's not to like?

The DVD quality is in top form (with, as usual, a surfeit of bonus material that alone justifies the <$30 pricetag), as alone does the restoration effort (Red Dwarfs 5 and 6 NEVER looked so good) so I will concentrate on the episodes themselves:

1. Holoship. Rimmer, a hologram, sees potential for having a life at last on board. The problem is, he has to beat his opponent. Who happens to be, unbeknownst to him, the hologram he falls in love with. Great series opener in terms of irony but the best is yet to come...

2. The Inquisitor. A rogue simulant (half man, half machine), wanders Time. Upon the individuals it meets, it assesses them. If they fail the assessment, they are removed from history and replaced with someone else. The story explains it with much more panache. It seems weird as to who passes and who fails the test, but not only does it appeal with its intellectual supremacy, but it remains true to its roots as being a comedy and makes this one a real winner for everybody. GREAT stuff.

3. Terrorform. Kryten and Rimmer crashed Starbug onto a "Psi-Moon". Kryten escaped with a helping hand, but Rimmer becomes a prisoner of a world that had been created out of his subconscious state! This one, like The Inquisitor, is riotously funny and appeals to all levels. Best of all, one can feel sorry for Rimmer.

4. Quarantine. Another winner, the Dwarf crew (sans Rimmer) happen upon the results of unique experiments.
