All three of the DVDs released so far have been promoted by giving away a free disc through a popular publication. Strangely, both of these free discs have been released after the actual DVD itself, and, not so strangely, both have featured a popular episode and a sneak preview of some of the extra features. […]
The Series II promo was free when you bought the Daily Mirror on Wednesday April 30th 2003, over two and half months since the DVD itself was released. It was part of a week-long promotion, which involved the Mirror, Woolworths and the BBC, in which a promo of a classic show was given away each […]
“We’ve probably already been corrected a billion times by people watching this, which is fair enough.” – Chris Barrie As part of our ongoing mission to be as geeky and obsessive as possible about a light-hearted sit-com, this page proves that the cast of Red Dwarf are utter fools who know less about the show […]
The Series II DVD contained a featurette that was very similar to the Drunk featurette on the Series I DVD. This new featurette was much more pleasant than the last one, due to it actually being set to a good song – Little Green Bag by The George Baker Selection. However, while you cannot deny […]
As with Series I, Series II was eagerly anticipated and pre-ordered from Play as soon as it was listed. I’m not sure if this puts you on the top of the pile for despatch for what, but for the second time I received my DVD on the Saturday, a whole two days before the release date. Marvelous.
This suited me down to the ground as I was attending the official launch on the Monday so I was able to get some good watching in before hand.
For the second time in just over four months, I set my alarm from half seven to make the journey to my local Woolworths; a journey that is as much spiritual as it is physical. My palms were sweaty, knees weak, arms were heavy. There was vomit on my sweater already – mum’s spaghetti. I was nervous, but on the surface I looked calm and ready to, um, buy a DVD. Something which I did with some gusto.
Some of you may be interested to know that two Red Dwarf-related clips are used in Seriously Funny, the new compilation of clips from Comic Relief, which was released on DVD in time for Christmas. These are part of the Bohemian Rhapsody video from 1993, and the clip of Rimmer falling off his chair in […]
When the Series I DVD was released all those weeks ago, nothing divided the fans opinions as much as the Drunk featurette. While some admired the slick editing and well-timed pace of the piece, others thought it did not reflect their idea of the humour in Red Dwarf. The idea that Red Dwarf is all […]
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.
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.
