  A must for anyone with a sense of humour

This is one of the best series, if not the best of a brilliant comedy. There's so many laugh, and great episodes in this, you got to get it. If your going to only get one series this would probably the best one to have, but don't leave it at that get some of the earlier episodes as well. You have some of the best episode's in the Red Dwarf series. The extras a very good as well. This laugh a minute comedy, is a must for any one who likes a laugh.

the best series yet, every 6 episodes are funny as hell, the first 5 seasons are extremely funny but this season is even better, a definite must buy

  Probably my favourite series of Red Dwarf!

Series 6 of Red Dwarf is a real fav of mine I have to say. I just love the concept of the series at this point where the crew have lost Red Dwarf altogether and use Starbug to try and find its whereabouts. Yeah ok the humour gets a little bit more lavatorial in places but I love the scripts and one liners that are here.

It also features some of my favourite all time episodes such as "Legion" where Rimmer gets upgraded, "Last Gunmen of the Apocalypse" which is even by Craig Charles admission his favourite episode of all time and the last one "Out of Time" which is just brilliant, even quite thought provoking with its whole what-if scenario.

It also neatly brings back some welcome characters such as Dwayne Dibley and Ace Rimmer (both briefly!) and although the plots are somewhat concept of the week-esque they are really good and well thought out. The climax of the season is actually one of my favourites as it really keeps you guessing what happened at the end.

So this is very probably my favourite season of Red Dwarf, after this things took a bit of a nose dive with series 7 but this is one of the best for me.

I've got rather mixed feelings about this sixth run of Red Dwarf. On the one hand you've got classics like the award winning "Gunmen of the Apocalypse" and the excellent sequel story "Emohawk - Polymorph II" and on the other I personally was less than satisfied with the conclusion to season finale "Out of Time". As before the first disc offers up a hidden Easter egg extra to be found in the 'select episode' option. By selecting this and then choosing "Gunmen of the Apocalypse" you'll find a sheriff's badge to the right of the second chapter. Pressing enter on this icon will launch the 6 min 'talking heads' feature on this particular story. The bonus features disc (which I initially found a little difficult to navigate around) follows the usual format spearheaded by an original 'making of' documentary which this time around is entitled "The Starbuggers" and weighs in at 74 mins. Another gargantum load of deleted scenes (approx 43 mins) sits alongside a 2 ½ min themed featurette ("Sick"), approx 18 mins of 'Smeg Ups' and 141 images in the self selection Photo Gallery on the standard extras usually common to these releases. For items unique to this particular title you've got two mute footage extras (raw effects - 13 ¾ mins and 8mm black&white Model Maker Footage approx - 6 mins), a worthy and interesting 29 mins with incidental music composer Howard Goodall in 'Setting the Score'. The celebrations continue for the "Gunmen..." story with Robert Llewellyn taking a sentimental journey back to the location in a 10 min "Return to Laredo" feature plus director Andy de Emmony offers 4 mins of his thoughts on the production. Also let's not forget the worthy inclusion of a 6 min 'behind the scenes' look at the making of season opener "Psirens". Together with the worthy standard 12 page 'collector's booklet' the high level of quality we've come to expect from 2 disc Red Dwarf releases is ably maintained and is a fine addition to the range.

series 6 has to be one of the best in the red dwarf series.
Legion has to be one of the best as rimmer gets his hardlight drive and we cant forget Gunmen Of The Apocalypse.

amongst all of them Emohawk - Polymorph II has to be one of the funniest.

Ace Rimmer: "You ready chum?"
Dwayne Dibbly:"Just let me check. Thermos, sandwiches, corn plasters, telephone money, dandruff brush, animal footprint chart and... one triple thick condom. You never know".

A must buy for anybody who is a fan of this series

Series 6, and the second of my favourite episodes of all time - 'Gunmen of the Apocalypse' (with added fan commentary) Sending the crew into a Western-themed construct of Kryten's consciousness results in a wonderfully directed and scripted half hour of comic brilliance and allows all the cast to play out all their childhood cowbot fantasies. And on this typically fun-packed DVD there lies a fascinating little featurette focusing on the town where the episode was filmed (the only Western town in the UK) when Robert Llewelyn visits ten years on from the shows filming. Other highlights of this sixth season (sadly the peak before the fall) was the hilarious 'Legion' and the brilliant final episode 'Out of Time' Ending on a quite fantastic cliffhanger fans were left positively salivating at the prospect of a seventh series. Sadly, the final two series never lived up to the unalloyed brilliance of the previous six but it certainly was far from the end...
