    At least for the UK, it's season 1 in November, and Season 2 in February 2003.
    It has been confirmed that "CineLook" has not been used to kill the video look of the first season, and that detail is like never before
    http://www.reddwarf.co.uk/deck01/dvd...ht_140602.html
    Deleted scenes are on the discs such as the funeral sequence from "The End"
    "The description of Rimmer's hobby of 'elbow-titting' - along with over 15 minutes of other deleted and extended scenes - will get their first public airing on the series I DVD. And one scene might just solve the problem of just why, at the end of Me2, Lister appears to select the wrong Rimmer for deletion!"
    I'm guessing that we'll see a US release very close to those dates, and/or whenever we get the RD movie, currently (still!) shooting.

    Are you sure we should be putting these DVDs on Red Alert? It does mean changing the blub. [​IMG]

    Red Dwarf.co.uk updated with an article about the (in my opinion) typicaly tacky looking Region 2 cover art, and states that series 1 wont hit Region 1 until Feb 2003. You can guarantee the BBC will do better art for the R1s at least..

    I'll probably break my rules and buy these R2, just to feel safer over the pace of their release. Be nice if in future good R1 owners could scan their art. I think the R1 art on Black Adder, League of Gentlemen is sooo much nicer than the R2. I am sure the R1 will see better art for RD.

    Since I have an HTPC for playback, are there any advantages/disadvantages to purchasing the R2 version? I use WinDVD4 and it has a "Pal Truespeed" option now. What's that?

    PAL typically speeds up the movie by 4% by what I understand, so "truespeed" would sound like it's going to slow it down to display the movie properly on NTSC systems.

    Damn, February!! That sucks!!

    Sigh.

    BTW, http://www.reddwarf.co.uk/deck01/dvd...ed_120702.html
    That's the link to the article. I also noticed that the following people are going to be doing commentaries:
    Chris Barrie, Craig Charles, Danny John-Jules and Norman Lovett
    damn no Kriten!? Oh well, they have Rimmer, Holly, the cat, and Lister... that's pretty cool!
    But NO KRITEN?
    hehe,
    Chris.

    WinDVD4 has a PAL speedup compensator? COOL!

    However, the series was shot on native PAL video. Speedup only happens on 24fps sources

    Kryten isn't in until season 3 or 4, so he wouldn't be on these tracks

    Ah, ok, so I guess the PAL version would be good for me. Now if we can get it priced the same...

    I'm running it to an HDTV anyways, so I guess PAL speedup is a non-issue anyways.

    I believe Kryten's first appearance was in the first episode of the second series, appropriately titled "Kryten". Hopefully Robert Llewelyn will be on the commentary for the second series DVDs.

    Hmm...I'm not actually certain that IS Robert Llewelyn as Kryten in episode 201, I'm watching it now...but hopefully whoever played Kryten will be on the commentary.
