On the 24th April 2002 I pre-ordered my copy of Red Dwarf Series I on DVD. Back then I had no idea what to expect. In fact back then I assumed we would have the re-mastered episodes and a few paltry extras.
IT. IS. HERE.
Read my amazingly in-depth and detailed review of the Series I DVD here.
After months of waiting, hours of speculation and discussion and plenty of intriguing announcements on the official site, Red Dwarf Series I has finally arrived on DVD. And it was worth the wait.
Apologies for the recent lack of updates. The dog ate my modem. Still, I’ve written two very nice articles, which can be selected from the menu on the left. A further article, a review of the Series I DVD will be uploaded in a specual update this Monday, 4th November at around 6:00pm. Don’t miss it. Oh, and thanks to Mick_AKA for the amusing Red Dwarf related picture that accompanies this message. Nice one Mick.
Ever since the DVDs were announced, hardly a day goes by without us speculating about what extras we’ll be seeing on future releases. This document is a collection of our thoughts and hopes so far, as well as an evaluation of whether we got what we wanted on the discs released since the article was […]
As we eagerly await the release of the original series on DVD, we look back at the short-lived Remastered series and ask simply: why? With the seventh series of Red Dwarf complete and the number of episodes up to 44, the fact that they were so close to the magical 52 episode mark played heavy […]
DVD news: There is a confirmed list of extras over at the official site. This includes the phantom ‘Drunk’ featurette, music cues and talking book chapters. Also this week, Debs (a.k.a. RimseyH) has confirmed that Chloe Annett, Lee Cornes, Danny John Jules, Norman Lovett, Hattie Hayridge and Chris Barrie will all be attending Dimension Jump. Website wise, there’s not much this week. Just a completed brief episode guide, which will eventually act as the index for the capsules.
Rather surprisingly, I have managed to commit to something for a whole week! I’ve updated the episode capsule for The End. I can also bring you a round up of DVD news. Some new menu shots have been made available, as well as BBFC ratings for Series One and Two model shots, deleted scenes and the Japanese version of The End. The striking things are the number on the clipboard in the menu shot and the extra features that are listed with the deleted scenes. We also now know that the DVD for Series One will be at least a 12.
