Red Dwarf - Series 8 product reviews

It was with a certain amount of renewed vigour that Doug Naylor pulled his team back together for Red Dwarf VIII. After enjoying the production of VII so much, the old magic had returned and the whole team, as well as the audience felt it.

Originally screened in 1999, Series VIII is the final season of this cult sci-fi comedy. Every episode from Series VIII is included, with highlights such as Cat engaging in a stunning dance sequence with the spacecraft Blue Midget, Kryten's metamorphosis into a scheming media-show host, Rimmer's metamorphosis into an irresistible sex object and Pete the Sparrow's metamorphosis into a gigantic dinosaur.

DVD Special Features include:
    •  Cast Commentary
    •  "The Tank" Original Documentary
    •  Deleted Scenes
    •  Smeg Ups
    •  "Super Model" Featurette
    •  Storyboard Sequences
    •  Raw FX Footage
    •  Dave Hollins Radio Sketch
    •  Easter Eggs
    •  Collectors Booklet

I've been a 'Dwarfer' ever since I first saw it debut on a late night NZ TV show, called "Friday Night"... (Yeah I know, showing my age... Wink Icon) and it has been a favourite for all these years... but as all good things come to end, so too have the tales of this motley crew... with a quite usual bang.

With all of the wierd and twisted stories they have been thrust into, one can only wonder if it would even be possible to come up with something new and novel, yet still entertaining. It was great to see that they managed to keep up the pace right to the last gasp.

Watching Cat dancing with the restyled Blue Midget ship in 'Back in the Red' was a total laugh... but the best episode had to be 'Pete' - for so many reasons... but watch for some cameos by some actors you would never have expected. Wink Icon

Overall, if there was a better way to round off the end of nearly a decade of classic Brit sci-fi wit, I can't imagine one. Packed into 3 discs, there is well over 5 hours of Dwarf... and if you like classic Brit Wit, you just have to have this to end off the era.

Product reviews for listing 459: Michael King - History Man -  Type of Show: Documentary

Product image for Michael King - History ManHistory Man, a feature length documentary, follows in the steps of Michael King on a journey through his own past - to childhood places where the sense of New Zealand and his own New Zealand-ness first struck him, and to the places his work steered him and the incredible people he met along the way.

His ability to cross cultural boundaries and delve deep into sometimes controversial areas greatly enriched New Zealand's recorded history. His tragic death early in 2004 was an enormous loss to this country.
