Dear Sci-Fi Online
I'm sorry but I just could [sic] let these ignorant and misinformed
comments go [In your recent review of the DVD of series IV
or Red Dwarf]:
extras are more impressive than season three's appalling
Would you like to explain to me how the IV extras are more
impressive than the III extras. I fail to see how they differ.
only really bad extras are the Ace Rimmer and Lurve 'documentaries'
are listed as 'documentaries' but are really just clips
cobbled together from the shows entire history"
sorry but these are NEVER described at documentaries. In fact
it's only your review that I have seen them being referred
to as this. They're featurettes and that's what it says on
"Oh, and this time around they've tried to make the talking
book chapters sound relevant by stating that they show the
characters in a new light?!!? Er... no they don't! And anyone
who is even remotely familiar with Red Dwarf will
know that the books and the TV series constantly contradict
one another anyway."
afraid that is ignorance at it's worst. And if you claim to
be even remotely familiar with Red Dwarf then you should
know the books exist in a totally different continuity to
the TV series. They co-exist but do not inhabit the same 'universe'
at it were. Therefore the inclusion of these clips is incredibly
relevant as it shows some of the scenes that were played out
alternatively, in the books.
review was a joke and may I suggest you get someone with a
modicum of Red Dwarf knowledge (or even intelligence)
to write V, VI, VII and VIII.
