A guy on a mailing list I'm on got this response RE: Red Dwarf
I suppose its too much to hope that these are the Original Tril^H^H^H^H Episodes, not those hideously mangled CGI Special Editions they made a few years back? Or do we not have any other information yet on these?
Oh well, I guess that we'll be reduced to choosing between the correct version or a decent picture again.
Was it just the first three seasons that were CGI'd into smeg? I refuse to buy those "special" editions, they're just too painful to watch.
Dunno what was altered most. I don't remember getting round to seeing them. I would have thought on the first two series would have had the work done. Doubt we'll get any other versions.
Shame that series VII was so awful. They shouldn't have carried on with only one writer. I guess VIII was an improvement but generally it stopped at the end of series VI for me.
Are we to assume that R2 isn't going to get this, however?
I'm assuming it's going to be simultaneous or very nearly so Theo. I'm guessing, especially with all the importing that the Beeb wouldn't allow stuff out in the US that wasn't available domestically, ESPECIALLY something like Red Dwarf
ITS ABOUT smeggin' TIME....(vindaloo, vindaloo, vindaloo!)
Any ideas of who I should contact to find out if the R2 DVD of 'Coupling' series 1 is on the way stateside?
Not so Jeff. Look at Blackadder...
Fan-smeggin-tastic! Besides Simpsons, this is the one release that I have been waiting for. Hope for some commentaries..they surely would be hilarious
I wouldn't worry too much about it since the movie is coming out
Yahoo!!!!! Can't wait to have this DVD in my smeggin' hands!
Been waiting loooong for this one, smegheads!
The Digital Bits is also reporting the Red Dwarf seasons 1 and 2 DVDs coming in August in Region 1. I wonder how many discs each season will be? Since there are six episodes per season, and each episode is approximately 30 minutes or so, one disc could fit a season nicely. But what about extras?
I remember asking that very question to an HTF member myself and the reply was (forget which member said it) that the news of a 2 disc version was read at a League of Gents website who had been in contact with the producers.
I tried following up any recent news but alas found none, I did find the website in question however which still posts the same info. The actual page with the news is here and you'll notice the info is from the teams management company, so fingers crossed.
Dan: I'd gladly give you Ab Fab before us if we could get your season 2 & 3 of Buffy. (Season one just hit the stores in the US this week.) I feel your pain.
Grrrrr...who pinched my Tension Sheet??!?
So anybody wanna buy my Series I-IV, VI, VII BBC tape collection?
The special editions also sport "more contemporary" music as well. Contemporary as of the time the SEs were done, of course, not now.
Example of how bad the CGI is: in one scene, with camera at head and shoulders height, a badly-superimposed CGI scutter moves across the bottom of the screen (i.e. in mid-air).
Also the SEs are cropped to 14:9, and remove half the frame information (one field out of two) for that "filmic" look. So it's reduced quality, butchered, and not even OAR. Avoid!
