Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The second series of Red Dwarf was, as Danny John-Jules says in the accompanying DVD commentary, "the one where it really went good." First broadcast in the autumn of 1988, these six episodes showcase Rob Grant and Doug Naylor's sardonic, sarcastic humor to perfection. The cast had gelled and the occasionally erratic tone of the first series--which was made a little too much in the shadow of Dark Star and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy--is replaced by a confident assurance that the show's mix of sci-fi in-jokes and gags about bodily functions really does work. There's more color this year, too, as the drab sets are spiced up, a little more money has been assigned to models and special effects, and the crew even goes on location once in a while.

"Kryten" introduces us to the eponymous house robot (here played by David Ross), although after this first episode he was not to reappear until series 3, when Robert Llewellyn made the role his own. Then in "Better Than Life" the show produced one of its all-time classic episodes, as the boys from the Dwarf take part in a virtual reality game that's ruined by Rimmer's tortured psyche. Other highlights include "Queeg," in which Holly is replaced by a domineering computer personality; the baffling time-travel paradox of "Stasis Leak"; the puzzling conundrum of "Thanks for the Memory"; and the astonishingly feminine "Parallel Universe." --Mark Walker

Product Description

Weirdly wonderful, wonderfully weird, this sci-fi spoof from the BBC has attained cult status, and counts among its wouldn't-miss-it-for-the-world fans Madonna, Leonard Nimoy, and Stephen Hawking. The eponymous centerpiece is a monstrously large time-traveling space vessel, and the featured human (sort of) characters are a fellow named Lister, a holograph named Rimmer, and a humanoid cat (felis sapiens) named Cat. Bonus DVD lunacy includes scads of deleted scenes and outtakes, a photo gallery, cast commentary, and audio-book excerpts. 3 hours on 2 DVDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars The worlds premier Sci-Fi comdey programme is here!!! December 24, 2002
Format:DVD
...and its about time. Join the continuing adventures of the crew of the Red Dwarf; Dave Lister (the ship screwball and slacker and the last human being alive), "Holly" (the ships computer), Arnold J. Rimmer(a holographic representation of Lister's deceased bunkmate), and "Cat" ( a humanoid who has 'evolved' from Lister's cat while he was in stasis for 3 million years) as they meet "Kryten", an android who will join the ship as a regular crewmember in season 3, survive a stasis leak, and travel to an alternate universe!!

Seasons 1 and 2 are available Feb 25th 2003, and two seasons will be released every ensuing February until all eight seasons have been released.
This is the funniest television program ever made in my opinion, and I am sure you will enjoy it!!!

Format:DVD
After watching the first season of Red Dwarf, I wasn't expecting very much from the second season. I figured it'd be more of the same...cheap sets, the slob and the neat freak, and some crazy cross between James Brown and a feline bouncing around on screen.

I was right...it's all that and more. But I was wrong to think it would be boring. The show actually takes the time to explore the characters and really get into their heads. In season 2, the show hits its stride.

David Lister (Craig Charles) is still Lister, but he's more subdued. Someone finally realized that watching a slob be a slob is funny in small doses. Which is good, because Lister got on my nerves after awhile. More screen time is given to Arnold Judas Rimmer (Chris Barrie), the real star of the show. It's easy to figure out why Lister is a pig, but the uptight Rimmer is much more intriguing. We delve into his neuroses as well as his past. And Cat (Danny John-Jules) exists primarily as Lister's foil. His quieter screen presence helps let the show be funny rather than distracting.

It is in this season that we first meet Kryten the android (David Ross), a manservant who isn't too good at determining the liveliness of his hosts. We learn about Lister's love life, the death of Rimmer's father (a touching scene that's played straight even though everyone's long dead anyway), watch the blokes play in a virtual reality game, mess with time travel, and enter a parallel universe where women rule.

I can't harp on this point enough: a lot of other science fiction shows ripped off Red Dwarf. Lister gets pregnant by a female, just like Charles Tucker in "Unexpected" on Star Trek: Enterprise.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Adventures Continue Beyond the Ship April 19, 2003
Format:DVD
For budget reasons, the first season was limited to events on the ship. Now that the Red Dwarf model is built, money can be spent on other things like planet shots and adding color to the ship's set. The plots are still like a sitcom, but the scripts are a little more developed this time. There will be radical changes in the next season so don't get used to this as it is.
This DVD has one of the best commentaries I've ever heard. I love hearing the actors comment on the show.
This set also has the best extras, included on a second DVD. It has some of the same type of things the first one had like smeg-ups (bloopers), deleted scenes, and photos. It has the complete Tongue-Tied performance. The A-Z Documentary is interesting and has some great moments. I'm not sure why the Daleks appear, but you do hear comments from various actors and well-known people - Patrick Stewart, Stephen Hawking. The "Smeghead" segment is great!!! ...especially when a young fan is heard asking what "smeg" means. The word remains undefined although most of us can probably guess the meaning.
The A-Z Documentary and Alternative Personalities offers some insight into what to expect in the future seasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Smeg Heads hit their stride May 23, 2012
Format:DVD
This is where the show changes from pretty good, to downright hilarious. They get their characters down pat and the timing is sharp. The introduction of Kryten is spot on. Favorite episode is the Queeg where Holly is able to get in some righteous revenge on the boys. If every season was this good...the series would have never gone away.

3.0 out of 5 stars Big improvement over Season One May 30, 2009
Format:DVD
I had been hearing incredible things about RED DWARF for years and was dearly disappointed watching Season One. I found the production to be really low quality, the cast to be far too male-dominated, and the writing to be less than splendid.

In Season Two the cast remained a bit too all-male for my taste, but the production improved through an obviously improved budget, and the writing seems to find its groove somewhat. The interaction between the main characters improved, with the change in dynamic between Rimmer and Lister improving markedly. In Season One every episode was highlighted by their unmasked dislike of each other. That got old quick. In Season Two they aren't exactly bosom buddies, but the constantly negativity lessened.

I haven't given up on the series yet. I've asked around on several boards and everyone assures me that the series gets a lot better after Season Two. I hope so. I started watching this in part because of a need to watch all major TV series with a robotic character. We saw him for one episode in Season Two and I know that he comes on board full time in Season Three. But I also wanted to see it because I'm interested in quality TV. Hopefully it will get better in Season Three, but that won't retroactively make the first two seasons better. But it is improving. If we could do fractions, I would have given Season One a 2.5 rating while Season Two a 3.2. Hopefully Season Three will get a 4.0.
