I missed that the First series of red dwarf came out on DVD yesterday. It comes with all 6 episodes plus 90 minutes of extras.

Cheapest price Ive found is at DVDplus (http://www.shopcreator.com/mall/dvdplus/products.cfm?productid=BBCDVD1117) 14.95

Unfunny, low-budget sci-fi/comedy series from the BBC. Ran for about six series (first series was shit, second shitter etc).

Some love it, most loath it. Me? I shall never forgive for inventing the catchphrase "Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast."

basically it's a sitcom set in space.

It follows a bunch of misfits travelling across the galaxy trying to get home. Hilarious, it was my favourite comedy programme in the 90's.

I really liked it as well although it tailed of in the last couple of series.

They're making a film as well. It'll be out end of this year apparently.

Isn't that what they said last year?

and it's what they'll say next year :)

15 pounds for the entire first season/series? That sounds remarkably... cheap.

That's pretty standard for a BBC comedy series. 6 1/2 hour episodes on 1 DVD for standard DVD price.

As with the The Office it comes with a second DVD with bonus feautures.

I just watched the first episode 'The End'. 'They're dead Dave.. Dave they're all Dead... They're dead Dave.' Ah nostalgia trip :)

Short series. Cheap prices. Here a 22 episode season will run you anywhere from 80-115 bucks.

Damn, 20 bucks for so many episodes of Red Dwarf??? I'd snap it up in a heartbeat! That show was comic genius!

Yeah, UK comedy runs are short, hopefully high quality throughout though.
