5.0 out of 5 stars another brilliant concept Oct. 8 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Fans of the Red Dwarf series will love this homage to Blade Runner. It's brilliantly conceived, with many references to past episodes, and naturally hilarious. Unfortunately, this production is noticeably lower budget - resulting in little rehearsal time and no studio audience feedback. Also compared to other seasons, the Back to Earth series is only comprised of 3 episodes (when run back-to-back amount to 70min. total), which is a disappointment. Fans like me, will want more. As expected, there are lots of dvd extras, including 2 commentaries and the second disc. Given the originality and inventiveness of the Red Dwarf history, it's a relief to see the creativity continue with Back to Earth. This series is different but brilliant.

2.0 out of 5 stars As a lifelong fan, this was a letdown Oct. 25 2009
As other reviewers mention, these episodes (really 3 parts of the same episode) lack a laugh track. This is Season 9's greatest flaw. It messes with the pacing and enjoyability of the program.

That said, I'm very tempted to buy the DVD in the faint hope that it will help the chances of them producing additional episodes. Maybe with some extra cash, they'll have the chance to get it right with future seasons.

3.0 out of 5 stars Should have stayed in deep space Aug. 26 2014
By Greg

If you miss this one, you won't be missing much. The storyline was utterly unbelievable - which is saying a lot for this series. It's still funny, but with only three episodes (or one super-episode depending on how you watch it) it really feels like it left half of the material on the cutting room floor.

I've already watched this before ordering, so I knew what I was getting. For the price of a regular season, you get three episodes, that in my opinion where not very good. But what Red Dwarf collection is complete without Season 9 and Season 10. "Red Dwarf Back to Earth" is considered season 9. Do not expect any deep belly laughs like you get from the other seasons, but still expect to be entertained.

One nice feature about the blu-ray is you can either play these as episodes or as a full length movie. If you are ripping the blu-ray so you can play on Linux, android, or such, be prepared for a bit of a pain. Like several other BBC blu-ray releases the encoding is VC-1, 1080i. I could not find a linux program that could rip the blu-ray without sever macro blocking, and of the six different windows programs I tried only one produced acceptable results. But the blu-rays play perfectly on my blu-ray player, which is more than I can say for some of the other BBC blu-rays I have purchased.

The individual episodes are simply stereo (DVD) quality audio. But the director's cut movie version has full 5.1 DTS audio.

3.0 out of 5 stars Is it worth it? Oct. 11 2009
If you are a die hard fan of Red Dwarf, then get the dvd. Otherwise, not worth the price.

It's three episodes, the comedy is not up to speck of the previous episodes. I was never a fan of a show that goes back to the "present" with the actors reenacting with common people. Otherwise, it is an expensive purchase for only three episodes, which do not rate as well compared to any episodes from Series 1 to 8. I actually feel ripped off since at the time of purchase, there was not a list of episodes in the details.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Sorry Disappointment Nov. 16 2009
As an avid Red Dwarf fan of many years I was really excited to learn there was a new series out. I was a little suspicious because things were trending downwhill over the previous two series. All my worst fears were realised. The whole thing was horribly stilted. There was only one laugh-out-loud gag. The rest were lame and recycled. Little at all to commend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars High Definition Dwarf
I recently bought the entire Red Dwarf series 1-8 on DVD, and wanted to complete my collection with this mini-series that takes place after the non-existent 9th series. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Fun
Not as good as the 1-8 series but still worth buying. My granddaughter loves it too and has watched all the episodes at least 3 times.

2.0 out of 5 stars Forget this and stick with the series
I found this movie to be overly long and complicated. The original wit and strong character development are gone
which is what origanally attracted me to the series. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars oh well
It's a wrap up of all the the episodes, on one disk. The other disk is deleted scenes and misc. Disappointing to get so little but it was well done with great graphics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Return of Red Dwarf - after all these years
If you enjoyed the original series - a BBC sci-fi comedy, you will certainly find these episodes or film (depending on how you view them) to be true to the original story line. Read more
