Red Dwarf: Series IV
Frequently Bought Together

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.]]>
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

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.
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 -
- 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.
- 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
I have loved Red Dwarf for years now. I never get sick of it, I always go back to it, and I continue to find new, more subtle aspects to the humor each time I watch. What's not to love about that.
