    01:57:17:15 WE’RE SMEGGED – THE MAKING OF: RED DWARF X
    00:27:50:02 DELETED SCENES – RED DWARF X

    On top of that is a commentary on the Deleted Scenes.

    So the longest Red Dwarf documentary to date and an entire episode worth in length of deleted scenes.

    Excellent. I very much like the name of the documentary.

    A commentary on the deleted scene eh? Audio or text? If audio, surely this bodes well for/confirms a commentary of some kind on the main episodes?

    Audio commentary as with the ‘Back to Earth’ deleted scenes.

    Nice, that’s got to be a Doug commentary.

    “We’re Smegged” is an annoying title, really, but I do think it’s referencing something other than “SMEG IS FUNNY”.

    Nearly 2 hours for the doc!!! At least some commentary confirmed!!! :D

    Everything’s rolled into the main documentary apart from deleted scenes and smeg-ups then? A two-disc release won’t have room for anything else!

    I’d guess the Dave idents with the cast will be included.

    Yer I’d expect all the promotional material since they went to the effort of ripping adverts from VHS for the I-VIII DVDs.

    Is it me, or does this release seem really rushed in order to get it out after transmission? How long was it after BTE did we get the DVD for comparison?

    We’re getting a massive documentary, so i’m not complaining, but I can’t help feeling a little disappointed after all the awesome DVDs we’ve had in the past.

    Weirdly enough, i’m hoping that Dave re-release this as a 2-Disc down the line. I’d be more than happy to buy a fuller special edition set later on with commentaries and cues and stuff.

    Is this only a 1-disc then? I’m not entirely sure how I feel about that. I’m hoping the menus are animated at least.

    Three hours of episodes, plus a two hour documentary, plus at the very minimum an extra 30-40 minutes of features? On one disc? Nah.

    Judging by Andrew’s tweets over the course of the year it sounds like they’d been working on the DVD/Bluray for a good few months.

    And yes I’d say that they’ve been working on the DVD for some time.

    I’m guessing the doc will contain more on-set stuff than the past ones, rather than just retrospective talking heads.

    I’m assuming that the commentaries would have needed to have been cleared before now though, right? I don’t think it would make a ton of sense to keep something like that under wraps. Has anyone asked Bobbyllew or Danny whether they’ve done any commentaries. I’m sure they would have made a thing about it had they done some, surely.

    I’m just hoping that we get a lovely full DVD set with all the trimmings that, not us, but that Red Dwarf, deserves.

    #201645

    I’m concerned about this too. Red Dwarf episodes without a cast commentary just wouldn’t feel right.

    Danny did tweet that he’s due back in the UK in the first week of October. Given that the DVD’s out in November, would that leave enough time for recording commentaries and getting them cleared by the BBFC?

    #201646

    I imagine that 3-4 weeks is enough time to record the commentary, pass it on the BBFC and master the DVD/BR.

    Good, I thought it was, but I’m not familiar with how the BBFC works. Hopefully we will get a cast commentary then. :)

    Andrew has tweeted me and I thought it was relephant to the conversation:

    Andrew said “Not saying it relates to RDX one way or the other, but the BBFC don’t, to my knowledge, rate commentaries.”

    “(I know it’s happened with deleted scenes, but that’s a delivery anomaly, not the norm.) Read zero into this. Just a factoid.”

    So, if there are any commentaries they wouldn’t be mentioned on BBFC anyways.

    Let’s just forget I just spoke eh?

    I soooo hope there are animated menus again, going round the ship like the others did. I liked the starbug ones on the VI and VII dvds.. also according to Dougs tweets a week ago the dvds have swap covers so im really hoping one of tgem is sort of I-VIII like as then my OCD chip wont overdrive lol

    Andrew said “Not saying it relates to RDX one way or the other, but the BBFC don’t, to my knowledge, rate commentaries.”

    How does that work? Would that mean then that on a DVD a commentary could contain the phrase “Norman Lovett is a cunthorn’ and it would still be passed as a U if the show itself was U rated?

    That’s what I’m thinking. it seems the BBFC have a hard time keeping track of all the extra stuff that appears on discs now, and some stuff could theoretically slip through the net.

    Classic Doctor Who commentaries are always passed through the BBFC these days, they weren’t up until around 2007-8. Possibly a choice by BBC Worldwide to pass them to er on the side of caution.

    If we weren’t going to get a commentary on the RDX DVD then they would probably have told us in order to not get our hopes up. As they haven’t said anything in a while then they are either sure that a commentary is happening or they are still working to try and make it happen.

    Sorry to completley side-line this, but just saw Men Behaving Badly – Jingle Balls on bbfc AGAIN.

    HOWEVER – It includes two NEW extra’s which I’m rather fucking excited about:

    Runtime Component title
    00:06:55:17 THE NAUGHTY BOYS (THE LOST PILOT)
    00:11:03:15 MEN BEHAVING BADLY (KYLIE)

    http://www.bbfc.co.uk/AVV294984/

    Im guessing for THIS:

    http://www.play.com/DVD/DVD/4-/35000788/0/Men-Behaving-Badly-The-Complete-Collection/ListingDetails.html

    Hopefully, they can put the widescreen masters of the last series on instead of the shitty cropped ones we had in the previous release. If they could get Comedy Connections on it too….. MAN this is a surprise release!

    ANYWAY back to Dwarf…

    ‘Fathers and Suns’ at 30 minutes and 7 seconds is the longest Red Dwarf episode, isn’t it?

    Assuming there’s no episode in X that’s longer I think it has to be, yeah.

    It really didn’t feel that long during the recording. Although that’s partly because of a GREAT BIG MISSING SEQUENCE at that point.

    (Also, sitcom recordings *never* like they’ve shot enough in my opinion, and yet they always do. Had the same with IT Crowd recordings.)

    It was about an hour shorter than any of the other recordings, too. Then again, episode 5 probably would’ve been quicker if it didn’t have the episode 1 rough cut shown at the end.

    #201689

    The length of recording for Episode 2 was perfect.

    Ep 3… well, could have been rather better. Slightly complicated guest set, though.

    MEN BEHAVING BADLY INTERJECTION.

    That lost pilot is a Comic Relief sketch, with the show in the style of a 70s sitcom, rather than an actual lost pilot.

    Yeah after I posted It, i realised It’s that black and white skit isn’t It. Still – I’m mega impressed that they’ve bothered to put them on, when they could of just repackaged the same discs again.

    Annoying, considering there IS an unreleased pilot for Men Behaving Badly. There were some clips on a Radio 4 documentary a while back.

    I’d be amazed if commentaries were one of the surprises, as if commentaries were included surely you would mention them on the back cover as a major feature. I mean, why would you mention Doug’s deleted scenes commentary and then not mention the one that’s a bigger selling point?

    #201738
