I loved Parallel Universe myself, one of my favourite episodes, if only for the 'Tongue Tied' intro.

The Omnibus was simply 'Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers' (also known simply as 'Red Dwarf [The Novel]') and 'Better Than Life' complied together with a bunch of bonus material. There have been no further Red Dwarf novels, and the order of Backwards vs. Last Human is based purely upon release date, given how each occurs in a seperate "universe/timeline/dimension/whatever".

The television series has gone up to 8 'seasons' (as it would be termed in America), but the continuity of the novels is completely different to the TV series (despite a number of similarites).

Thanks SamuelXDiamond

I finished reading, "Better Than Life", but it seems that "Backwards" would be the third book in the series.  "The Last Human" is the fourth book in the series, in terms of which occured first?

I just got The Last Human and Backwards, but which should I read first?  I hear that The Last Human was published after "Better Than Life", but backwards takes place right after "Better Than Life".  Can someone please help me out?

Read either. They have nothing to do with each other. Consider them two seperate timelines.

What is on the DVDs? I was looking it up on Amazon and it's like 30-some dollars for one series with 6 episodes. I was considering buying them, but now I'm not so sure.   hmpf

Pretty good value, I think.  As well as the six episodes, there's a new documentary on each, which run between 60 and 90 minutes, Smeg-ups, music cues, commentaries from the cast, and sometimes some other stuff (like "Can't Smeg, Won't Smeg" on S4, and Hattie's DJ Diary on S3).

Plenty to keep you amused.

In adition to the episodes (in their original airing form not the crappy updated ones)
There are Deleted Scenes, cast and crew commentaries, footage from the yearly Dimension Jump Red Dwarf conventions, music scores, audio from Chris Barrie's book on tape version of "The Universe Welcomes Careful Drivers", Behind the scenes footage and interviews with cast and crew, as well as famous Red Dwarf fans such as patrick stewart, An informative Episode guide booklet, and probably more.

The DVDs are well worth it

Yow. Here in Blighty (well, Chester at least), the DVDs for all four released series have dropped in price to around about £10 each. Fantastic value, really. On top of what Melllll and Grim have said, the DVDs are totally worth it because they feel so damned complete. You will never need to own this series on another format.

Also, the commentaries kick ass.

Also, i'm a total Red Dwarf mark, so my opinions are a lil biased.

You still got my spam siggy quote!  big grin

Anyway, what's the deal with the season 1-4 box set coming out in September?!  confused

Won't people be pissed off when Season 5 comes out straight after (or whenever) that and be even more pissed when the can't fit it into the big shiny box with the other seasons!?
Poor little box! It'll feel like an outcast and unwelcome to the 1-4 party!!  cry

All the extras you could want, baby. Also including the "Can't Smeg, Won't Smeg" with Ainsley Harriot special they showed on the 10th anniversary night. Full details here.

Never! They'd have to deal with too many corporate tossers that would try to hollywood it up.

I saw the season 5 box today, it had a little toy starbug with it.

I have been looking at the website about this year’s convention

 
Quote
Now, along with providing the usual drunken representatives who can't dance, Grant Naylor have also released an exclusive teaser of their Series VII documentary for screening during the weekend. The ten-minute extract will be the 'Blue' section of the docco, which includes all the usual humiliating anecdotes, vis-FX tricks and unseen footage.

Ah, yes – unseen footage. For the first time you will see, complete and uncut, the Rimmer and Lister snog. Did Craig slip Chris the tongue? Did Chris gargle with a Toilet Duck afterwards?

So this might be shown on the next DVD?

I went to "Collectormania" yesterday and managed to get Norman Lovetts autograph, he was a really nice fella  smile

unfortunately the queue to meet Chris Barrie was so long I'd probably still be there now, so this was the best picture I could get:

That is so cool. It is nice to see our favourite stars again. Ooohhh I really need to find my photos on the Red Dwarf convention that I went a long time ago. I have photos of Chris Barrie, Craig Charles, and my favourite one is I had a photo of myself with Danny John Jules.

I have been watching old episodes of Red Dwarf on UKG2 and the other night I was watching the smeg outs on video.

It is due out on November 7th according to Amazon.co.uk (January 10th 2006 in the US).

I saw the first ever episode last night on UKTV G2, it has some great scenes, it's only the second time I've seen it.

Is no one watching Red Dwarf anymore? What the smeg is going on here...3 million years into deep space and the walls of civilisation have come crumbling down!

There are too many good episodes to pick a favourite. Though I was a bit disapointed with season 8. Season 7 was excellent, particularly the way Kryten got all Jealous and Neurotic when Kochanski came back!

Clool, someone bumped a Red Dwarf thread....great show. I used to watch it in the mid-to-late 90s when it was on my local PBS station (public television), but then at some point the jackasses took it off. Now all that's on anymore are antique shows and Austin City Limits.   no no Haven't seen it in years.   frown  But it certainly did have some things in common w/ Futurama, didn't it. I don't remember a lot of specific episodes but I definitely remember all the characters, and i recall that one where everything was going backwards; time was running backwards. It's a pretty brainy show, isn't it.

Yeh its excellent works on so many different levels all the way from slapstick up to very intricate scifi plots, yet all within 30 minute slots!

There are many parallels between red dwarf futurama, notably the parallel universes, The time travel element...i.e Lister was also frozen in time, albeit by a factor of 3000 longer!
This is in fact a thread dedicated to identifying Futurama / red dwarf cross references.... http://www.peelified.com/cgi-bin/Futurama/11-000299-1/

I was under the impression that Red Dwarf was Huge in the states...Iam surprised that it isn't broadcast more often over there. I know a few years ago when I was really into red dwarf there were a lot of fans from the US on the bulletin boards on the red dwarf site.

I need to check it out again, to see if they have got any further with the movie.
