4 Its marathon time!Jaymedia | 19/02/2010 | See all Jaymedia's reviews (12)This is exactly what it says on the box. Every episode from series I to VIII. It's widely agreed among discerning fans that series I to V are the greatest, and the whole show started to go downhill as soon as Chris Barre left the show. No Rimmer, no comedy. Simple as that. With that in mind, this box set is an essential purchase for anyone looking to replace a long-lost set. Its worth mentioning that there are no extras included within this set. Hence the title "just the shows". At 25 pounds though, this is an absolute steal. Considering that if you buy the series seperately, you will pay about 20 each for them. All for the sake of extras. This is pure British comedy gold. If you've never seen Red Dwarf, go ask your dad, or your older brother about it and they'll say its hysterical. If you used to watch it as a kid, and were disappointed with the recent episodes shown on Dave, then take a trip down memory lane, and re-live Red Dwarf from a time when it was funny, and had real character. An essential purchase.
