The first three episodes - "Twentica", "Samsara" and "Give and Take" - are excellent, with "Samsara" being a particular highlight for not just its humor, but for its unique story structure and its morality bending sci-fi premise. "Officer Rimmer" falls a bit flat, rehashing the worn concept of any small success going to Rimmer's head and ends on a rather sudden note. "Krysis" is like something written by Douglas Adams, examining Kryten's midlife crisis while the crew has a face to face meeting with The Universe. Finally, "Can of Worms" marks the return of a Big Bad that's well known to fans of the series, though the episode itself is a bit on the weaker side. Still, even lukewarn Red Dwarf is far better than most sitcoms on the air nowadays. All in all, this release is a must-have for Red Dwarf fans, even if (like me) you were less than thrilled with the recent releases of Back to Earth and Season 10.
That being said the bluray of Season 11 US release is 1080i video along with 2.0 audio. Its such a bizarre thing it should say that somewhere on this page.
What happened to 1080p and 5.1 of season 10? I know the production company changed but interlaced video is going too far. Who knows what kind of scaling issues will happen in the future. Id have paid a few more bucks for 1080p, for just the consistancy.
BUT I have an issue with the Blu-Ray. When ever a special effects shot comes on, like a pan of Red Dwarf or a ship flying through space, the video gets choppy. It will jump forward a few frames at a time. But when the actors are on screen like a normal shot it's fine. I am playing it on a PlayStation 3, and the same happens when playing back on my computer.
I paid extra for the Blu-Ray for the best quality possible, and this is not it.
Also for $35 you get the bare minimum in a Blu-Ray pack. Just a case and a disk. I know it's a limited audience and they have to make money producing a short run of disks. But it feels a little skimpy for 6 short episodes. Something extra in there would be nice, like a little booklet or sticker or something.
