Out of twenty-nine user reviews of Red Dwarf Series VII on Amazon.co.uk, only seven were written after the DVD was released. Out of those seven, one is short enough to possibly qualify as a haiku, another says little about the series itself and talks instead about how Grant and Barrie left the show, another compares it to Fawlty Towers, Monty Python and Only Fools and Horses, and another compared Kristine Kochanski to Jar-Jar Binks. An excerpt from one of the reviews:
The blame must be put on Doug Naylor, the co-creator. Doug Naylor, the other creator of the show (and a more talented writer than Doug) left the show after Season 6 because he didn’t want to be remembered for just RED DWARF. And Doug Naylor seems to throw everything but the humour into the scripts of Season 7, failing everybody.
To all DVD reviewers: WAIT UNTIL IT’S RELEASED PLEASE. It’s bad form to rate a product before you’ve even seen it. Oh, and no one wants to read your episode listing.
And please, please, put some thought into it.
