This is by far the best comedy series I've ever seen, even above Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, Rising Damp, and Butterflies. I watched this show every chance I got when they were being re-run on PBS. I missed so many at the time, then I got the set. My wife hates it when I pull these back out and start watching them again, sitting around giggling like an idiot at all the cleverly witty banter and situational comedy these characters get into. It's still as funny today as the first time I saw them. Even the late episodes are great.
Some of my favorite lines and scenes came in the later seasons. Like in Duct Soup, Season 7, Ep.4: Cat and Lister are crawling the ductwork of the ship, trying to repair a reactor leak (I believe), and Cat tells Lister he hears a sort of "swirly, watery, rushing kinda noise". It turns out to be the raging water of the backwash system that flushes the sewer ducts. A few minutes later, Cat says now that he hears a sorta "windy, swirly, drying kinda noise" and a frustrated Lister asks him if he's sure it's not a sorta "smacking cat upside the head kinda noise". Trust me, it's a lot funnier on the show and I can't do it justice; but it's one of my favorite scenes.
Also, this excerpt, Season 3, Ep.1, where no matter what, Cat is worried about his appearance:
LISTER: Fasten your belt.
CAT: Hey, I do NOT need fashion tips from YOU.
LISTER: SAFETY belt! (Points out the window) Look!
CAT: Is that what I think it is?
LISTER: What d'you think it is?
CAT: An orange whirly thing in space!
LISTER: It's a time hole. That's where they are. We're goin' in.
CAT: Are you crazy?Read more ›
I began watching this series in 1991, and I have always recommended Red Dwarf to everyone. I've been pimping Red Dwarf since the early '90s, but I never had a chance to finish watching the series. Now that I own the entire collection of episodes of Red Dwarf, and I have finished watching the series, I thoroughly recommend purchasing the Boxed set of DVDs.
These DVDs have many extra features, edited and extended scenes, numerous extra bits, hidden features, and humorous additions which provide countless hours of entertainment.
No matter how messed-up the world is, or how much the daily news can ruin your day, this Boxed set of Red Dwarf episodes and Bonus materials will brighten your life! If you do not find the series humorous, you might want to check your pulse.
I personally feel a deep connection to the sets of the scenes, as well; Commodore geeks from back in the day will smirk often. In fact, the entire Red Dwarf series is likely to make you laugh and smirk, as well as adopt Red Dwarfisms. When your boss is a jerk, you can just say, "Smeeee....Smeeee." Your coworker will get it, but your boss or Human Resource Manager hopefully will not. There are a wealth of inside jokes, catchphrases and memorable scenes within the world of the Red Dwarf crew.
This boxed edition is well-worth the investment! Back in the day, I watched episodes that friends had taped, so I greatly appreciate the convenience of these great quality, well-packaged, stylish, well-documented DVDs. I am very impressed with every aspect of this set; the collection was well thought out, and I look forward to inducting more people into the Red Dwarf Cult in the future.Read more ›

|2 x 8 = 18?||
Seasons 7 & 8 are each 3 disc sets because they contain more episodes than the previous seasons. It was a cool idea to come up with a normal looking case that can actually hold 3 DVDs without laying them on top of one another. Anyway, that's how you get 18 discs.

|Is this the remastered or original version?||
You can tell the remastered version by all the CGI and different credits they added to Series 1-3. The episode, "Polymorph", has been changed extensively. I hate the remasters too - leave well enough alone! I don't know whether this set is the remasters or not, but I'd love to know.

|Why not offer the cardboard box to fans who bought the series individually?||
I am in full agreement! I was so happy that Peter Jackson did that with his Extended Edition of LOTR. It's the least someone can do for their loyal fans that painstakingly and patiently waited for months and months and years and years, gathering each DVD as it was released, in part to ensure...

|Is this the BBC version or American version?||
The Ace Rimmer scene that opens "Stoke me a Clipper" was certainly on my copy of the Series 7 DVD--but you do have to hit "play episode" as opposed to "Main Titles" on the scene selection menu to be able to see it.

|Does this include the 2009 BACK TO EARTH episodes?||
No it does not, it is from series 1-8 only, you have to get that one separately.
