 DVD Review--“Red Dwarf Series VII” - SciFi TV
I must admit that though I’m a huge “Red Dwarf” fan, I never saw the seventh season until the DVD version came out (I had, however, watched part of the eighth season and was extremely confused by how the show ended up where it did).
Ultimately, any “Red Dwarf” is good “Red Dwarf,” and keeping an eye out for the craziness that make the show unique keeps me occupied during even the less-than-great stories.
The characters are as kooky as ever, and the flavor of “Red Dwarf” is all there.

 Red Dwarf Episode Guide by Gavrielle Perry: Series VI
The only character for whom this is a good series is Kryten: as the SF stuff comes more and more to the fore, his technobabble role becomes increasingly important.
A lot of the humour of these characters was in their surprise value: when you take that away, you’re left with a limited set of character traits whose comedic impact decreases exponentially with repeated exposure and tarnishes the memory of the original.
But the idea that the characters become what they are in the future is completely without foundation: no explanation is even attempted as to why they should change their essential selves so radically.

In the past sci-fi comedies have always been a failure, but Red Dwarf is about the only series that has managed to do well, there are year round conventions all over the world and in fact they are making a movie as we speak.

 Red Dwarf Season 1
I was introduced, completely at random, to Red Dwarf back in 1999 on the Public Broadcasting Station.
This series is set on board a mining ship aptly named Red Dwarf, and follows the completely outrageous lives of the last remaining human being alive, his deceased roommate turned hologram, a service robot, and a humanoid evolved from a common housecat.
First broadcast by the BBC, Red Dwarf is an amazingly well achieved work of special effects and comedy.

As you may or may not know, Red Dwarf is not about small, rouge coloured humanoids who run around, swinging axes, looking for gold and spending most of their lives under ground.
It is, in fact, the name of a very red, very big space ship from the Jupiter Mining Corporation, a fictional company in the future.
The ship was, of course, named after star types - the star type that seems to be most frequent in the universe is known as a red dwarf.

Trivia: Although it is never identified as such, it is clear (at least to science fiction fans) that Red Dwarf is powered by a ramscoop, a staple technology of speculative fiction that permits spaceships traveling at sufficient speed to collect sparse interstellar hydrogen atoms as an essentially unlimited fuel sources.
With the third series the show took a change in direction and pace, with the introduction of the character Kryten as a regular and the all new female version of Holly.
With any other show this might have signalled the beginning of the end, such radical changes rarely go down well but with Red Dwarf it was like a new lease of life and saved the show from becoming stale or repetitive.

 Scifilm -- TV Files, Red Dwarf: "Marooned"
When Holly suddenly picks up five fl holes in Red Dwarf's vicinity, the crew is forced to evacuate while Holly tries to navigate a safe course around the approaching fl holes.
This episode is all about further establishing the relationship between Dave Lister and Arnold J. Rimmer, the two characters we see marooned alone together throughout of this episode.
While this episode is somewhat lacking in typical "Red Dwarf" humor, it nevertheless manages to tell us a great deal about Lister and Rimmer, what makes each character tick and how they view their relationship with one another.

The central storyline of Red Dwarf was not about Lister, as many people believe, but rather was about Rimmer coming to grips with his own mortality.
By ending the series in this way, the Red Dwarf producers not only made their sly commentary on humanity, but also managed to marvel at the unpredictable and sometimes irreverant way thing work out in the universe.
Doug Naylor was quoted in a recent interview as saying that the future of the TV show relates to Red Dwarf's cinematic release.
