Red Dwarf died long before its time. But all the great times can now be relived in this box set, which by the way is very well made and not flimsy like many sets these days. Three million years from Earth, the mining ship Red Dwarf. Smoke me a kipper fellas, I'll be back for breakfast!!! See ya around, ya smeggers!!!
In a nutshell, the boys travel to 'our' reality where they are just characters in a TV show.\n\nIt's supposed to take place after series 10 but actually the last series was 8. They just did that so they wouldn't have to deal with the cliffhanger at the end of season 8.\n\nIt's an enjoyable, if not hilarious, reunion of the Red Dwarf characters. Unfortunately it is also rather short, only about 70 minutes.\n\nIf you're a fan of Red Dwarf and already have seasons 1-8, this would be a good buy. If you're new to Red Dwarf you'd probably be better buying one of the 'real' seasons.
Bought this as a gift, wrapped it and presented it on Christmas day. Knew he really wanted it. He opened it and wanted to watch it right away. Surprise! The factory-wrapped case was missing the main disc. I was so embarrassed. They had put in the disc with the extra features and left out the main one. I will be returning it today.
Shabbily filmed and poorly acted, its lone positive is a compellingly awful turn by Alfie (brother of Lily) Allen, whose bumbling, velour-tracksuited date-rapist is the sleaziest thing you(TM)ll see this year.
