Product Description

Red Dwarf: IV (DVD)

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.

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

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

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)

As far as I'm concerned there's no series of this show that is not excellent. My first series was on PBS and it was this one. I was hooked from the start. I read all the reviews and there are folks pickier than me that only like to a certain point, but there's not one set that isn't worth every dollar. Nice price, fast ship and excellent show.

Red Dwarf has always been one of my fav shows. The characters are all so funny and they play off each other so well. Some of the episodes are hysterical! If you are thinking about watching this, you better like British humor and if you do, you will love Red Dwarf!

Red Dwarf in it's prime was a highly addictive Sci-fi comedy for people who watch too many movies. The early seasons were a little uneven in quality, and almost come across like a soap opera, and the later episodes became over-produced and tired, but Series IV was where the writing, production, and fun really began to gel. Series V and VI are also excellent, but here is where you should start.

The humor is so hilarious, and the characters so perfectly developed that it's easy to find yourself surprised by the brilliant science fiction. (The science fiction aspect gets more clever with each successive series of the show, in my opinion). Season 4 has some of my very favorite episodes. There are so many quotable lines, too. It's easy to immerse yourself in the world of these characters and it's very difficult not to binge watch.

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.
