 Amazon.com: Red Dwarf - Series 1 & 2: DVD: Andy DeEmmony   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Although, in my opinion, Red Dwarf didn't become a true classic until about its 3rd series, the first 2 series' are definitely better than most shows first couple seasons (with the exception of Futurama, which was hilarious from the get-go).

In other words, if I were introducing a Red Dwarf newbie to the series (assuming they'd agree to a marathon viewing session of something they know nothing about), I'd probably show excerpts of episodes from season 1, a few episodes from season 2, and start right in on season 3.
