5.0 out of 5 stars red dwarf series review
I am not a big one on to many british shows because the humor is dry and not all that funny. But this show is so much better the stle is very unique to watch. It is fresh and funny. Some those shows are so funny my sides were sore. But it can be crude but to be honest alot of british humor is anyway. I am not saying this to ne sterotyping.

2.0 out of 5 stars Attack of the killer computers
According to some remarks in "bonus features", Red Dwarf is a "sci-fi comedy sitcom" originating from BBC. Recognizable influences come from Dark Star, Star Trek and Star Wars, and probably others. Series I and II each consist of six about-28-minute episodes. Episode 1 sets the premise that leads into the series scenario. Subsequent episodes should generally be viewed...

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't watch just one!,
This review is from: Red Dwarf Series 1 & 2 (DVD)This series is habit forming. These opening shows were so wonderfully fresh and funny - there is nothing like them! I laughed until I couldn't laugh anymore! I watched the entire lot of episodes in one sitting, and I wanted MORE! Unbelievably funny and fascinating! You can't help but fall in love with these kooky characters!
5.0 out of 5 stars A good buy, I recommend it,
This review is from: Red Dwarf Series 1 & 2 (DVD)The series Red Dwarf is truly amazing, and if you enjoy it, you'll definately want these DVDs. They hold dozens of interesting bonus features as well as the actual episodes. Some favorties of mine are:
-Balance Of Power
-Waiting For God
-Better Than Life
5.0 out of 5 stars Smeging funny,
This review is from: Red Dwarf Series 1 & 2 (DVD)Low budget sets, low budget special effects, absolutely hilarious. Some may knock the early espisodes for it's low budget look, but to me that is part of the appeal. What stands out is the wonderful writing, while it is a sci-fi take-off the real star of this series is the hilarious dialogue between the crew, the cat and the computer. The first four series are great, the later episodes got a bigger budget, you can tell from the look, but the best episodes are definitley the earlier ones. Another series you can watch over and over and never get tired of it. For those who love Monty Python and Black Adder.
5.0 out of 5 stars Red Dwarf rocks,

5.0 out of 5 stars Extras Galore,
By A Customer
This review is from: Red Dwarf Series 1 & 2 (DVD)The amount of work put into this DVD collection is incredible. Not only were they able to convince all four stars to commentate all the episodes, they also provide the fans with plenty of bonus features. Bloopers, model shots, music, videos, and the featurette RD A to Z. It's only season 1 & 2! I can't wait to see the extras on season 3 & 4!
5.0 out of 5 stars Owww...How'm I Lookin?,
This review is from: Red Dwarf Series 1 & 2 (DVD)Hrm, sorry kids, Cat is one of my favorites, though I tend to say that Lister is perhaps the strongest character of the lot. Nevertheless, it is all hilarious, and I urge all RD fans to buy these DVDs. Has good commentary, and fun interactive screen (though I do wish there were more to them). I am so antsy for the others to come out. Why do they have to drag out the anticipation? I suspect for monetary reasons. Such is life. Smeg happens, yeah?
5.0 out of 5 stars All the smeg you need!,
This review is from: Red Dwarf Series 1 & 2 (DVD)Red dwarf never gets old it's just as funny to this day and with the DVD's you get a few extras, the extras just add to the smeg value of red dwarf and to be honest these DVD's couldnt be much better for content, when you look back on some of the first episodes you cant really remember some with it been that long since it was on tv but they are still just as funny as with Kryton when he was discovered looking after some dead people assuming that they where alive, you cant really help but love the robot that looks like a condoms been placed on his squareish head. So it's worth getting although if you can find it cheaper it would be better as it's pretty expensive.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great, even if it's a bit cheap at first,
This review is from: Red Dwarf Series 1 & 2 (DVD)So the set design is the result of a stellar budget at first, but it does drastically improve every season.
The first season is deffinately low budget, the second season shows a paint job and a bannana, then the third season they really start to get it together into a real set, but that is not to say that the low budget made it any less hilarious.
Red Dwarf is deffinately one of the funniest shows I've seen. I can't wait for season 3 and 4 on DVD.
4.0 out of 5 stars AAAH, Rimmer!,
This review is from: Red Dwarf Series 1 & 2 (DVD)What can I say except it's too expensive? That's the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. How could anybody not love the obsequious Rimmer, brilliantly played by Chris Barrie? (I admit I've got a soft spot for him, though.) And Cat! When he steals the champagne from Kochanski's honeymoon suite I almost fell off the chair laughing.
This is such great fun that I'm almost tempted to watch them all over again immediately, since the next 2 seasons apparently won't be out until next spring.
