In the first trailer on the DVD, where Rimmer disappears from the cockpit, the sound is different and the visual effect isn’t in place – he just disappears. Proving that Presentation were using clips from a rough cut of the episode.
Ah, Groovetown. Sadly, it’s free of the purile humour that blights Ganymede & Titan, but there was an interesting post from a Doug (!) recently – the Dwarf cast are coming to Swindon for a VIII DVD signing. Ha ha, Swindon!
Most interestingly of all, this is a potential reunion of the entire cast: Chris, Craig, Robert, Danny, Norm, Hattie, and Mac. This was of course supposed to have happened at the last Memorabilia, but Craig and Mac couldn’t make it. Hopefully they’ll all make it to Swindon. Ha ha, Swindon!
Some interesting choices of words in that Swindon Advertiser article. Quite apart from the show apparently ending in 1998, Kryten is described as “a boggle-eyed mechanoid”. I mean, I know it’s tedious having to trot out the same character descriptions time and time again, but if you’re going to try something original, at least try and make it mean something. Oh, and here’s a clue: “paranoid android” is from another show. Maybe it’s just how they view him in Swindon. Ha ha, Swindon!
Anyway, It’s taking place on Thursday, 30th March between 4pm and 7pm, at Infinitely Better in the Brunel Centre. In Swindon. Ha ha, Swindon!
Excellently, Yvonne Craig is appearing at the store the week before on March 23rd. As she was the first person I ever TOSSED OFF to (need Batman Series 3 on DVD NOW), I’m half tempted to pop along a week early. I probably won’t inform her of my younger self’s doings, though. I don’t think I could get away with that, not even in Swindon. Ha ha, Swindon!
Series VII, then. The penultimate release to what has so far been the finest set of DVDs to ever be released. And, for this reviewer, it starts to get a little more interesting as from this series. As you may or may not know, I don’t like VII very much. In fact, it’s generally regarded […]
There’s a problem with the Series VII DVD. Quite a big one, that none of the other releases so far has had to deal with. Put simply, the problem is this: the series is shite. Have GNP managed to put together a DVD release that compensates for this? One that’s still worth buying if you […]
It’s big! It’s thorough! It’s stupidly late! It’s G&T’s Series VI DVD review! Hurrah! Put simply, a stunning release. I can never decide which is my favourite series out of II, V and VI, but I think VI has a stronger claim to it that the others. Superb action sequences, a frantic mood and pace, […]
Ah well, here we go again. In my opinion, Series VI was the last great Dwarf series to be released. In fact, V and VI are both in my top 3 series, so it’s nice that they’ve been released so late on, with all the extra cash and experience that comes with it. Uno The […]
Well, it’s time for my first DVD review, with the release of Series V. This was an eagerly-anticipated disc, not just for the quality of the episodes but for the amount and quality of extras packed onto it, most notably the Dwarfin’ USA documentary. But what is it like in the flesh, as it were? […]
The vast majority of us have had to wait until the actual release date before getting our grubby little hands on this DVD. It’s a fucking disgrace. But while we’d all prefer our letterboxes to be stuffed first thing on a Saturday morning, there is something to be said for getting up at stupid o’clock, […]
Ah. Saturday morning. Usually, a time to rush downstairs excitedly, and wait by the letterbox and wank repeatedly until the latest Dwarf DVD arrives. However, this Saturday was different. Less of an excited run, more of a bleary-eyed groan as Gilbert thrusts a package into my hand. “Apparently, it’s Just The Shows – Volume 1, […]
A few days after receiving Series V on DVD, I sat at my computer with the intention of banging out a review during the day. I had my list of titles in front me, a large mug of coffee and a whole heap of thoughts. But then I decided I’d rather sit on the sofa […]
