I've been waiting a whole year for series 3 and 4 of Red Dwarf to be released and now that I finally have them in my hot little hands, I can't help but feel disappointed to notice that the logos on the spines don't line up. They're offset by quite a bit and I can't see any sort of pattern emerging.

Maybe I'm being nit-picky but this sort of thing really gets my goat!

And while I'm on the subject - why does the text on the South Park boxsets run bottom to top instead of the usual top to bottom?

Maybe there is a pattern after all - Red Dwarf and South Park are both Warner releases ... Posted Image

the R2 Red Dwarf spines are slowly forming the 'Red Dwarf' logo (it's up to R / DW now..)

Yeah, I've seen them. They're pretty cool. I'm starting to regret getting the R1's.

No patterns at all on the r4 releases - which is annoying.
Films watched in 2005 / 2006 / 2007 / 2008 / 2009 / 2010 / 2011
AFI Top 100 lists: Movies, Thrills - Completed / Laughs - 23 to go
Passions - 39 to go / Heroes & Villains - 10 to go / Songs - 42 to go

Yeah, R4 always get shafted when it comes to cover art.

Check out our Fawlty Towers boxset - it looks like something a cat coughed up. A grainy publicity shot from the 70's, with a tree that looks like it was knocked up on MS Paint.

I bought the R1 version solely for the cover art - a classy caricature of the cast.
