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.

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.

Format: DVD
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. The plot concerns the Red Dwarf characters realizing that they are fictional and thier creator is about to destroy them. They manage to travel to reality and try and save themselves. It sounds interesting but falls flat. I wouldn't recomend this one.

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.

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.

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.

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. I think the storyline was definitely risky. You'll see what I mean when you get your own copy.

It's great to see the cast reunited, and they still have the same chemistry as they did in the 80's and 90's.

I find it facinating how the producers will often change the style of the show. Every few years, they would throw out the old model, and create something new, but still very Red Dwarfish. It seems their motto is "always mess with what works", and it's served them well.

Visually, I've never seen Red Dwarf or any other TV budgeted show look this amazing. You definitely want the Blu Ray version of this one - even it means buying a Blu Ray player and high definition TV.

There are two commentaries on the CD - one by the cast, and one by Doug Naylor. Doug will talk at length about the amazing new digital camera he used for this production. There are also featurettes to show how visual effects were achieved. They were very creative with getting the effects done within the budget.

I'm very happy to add this to my collection, look forward to new Red Dwarf series.

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.
