"New model sequences, new footage, new effects. Digitally remastered sound, digitally enhanced pictures and brand new wooshy [sic] noises!!".

It's worth pointing out that these DVDs are the "remastered" (read "mucked about with") versions put out on VHS in the late nineties when revisionism was all the rage with Star Wars. These DVDs were released to appeal to the fans who already have the standard versions.

Thanks for pointing that out CountFilth

Good deal this one, managed to get it when it was £12.99 but this was still well worth it even at this price.

The real reason these were produced was for the US market. Series 4-6 were doing well over there but it was decided that Americans wouldn't take to the low-budget feel of the first 3. A lot of Holly's dialogue was reshot replacing British references with American ones eg "Felicity Kendall's bottom" changed to "Marilyn Monroe's bottom".

Gutted its gone.

Good Lord. Re-shooting Red Dwarf for thick Americans should be illegal, imo. Am I allowed that opinion? I'm never sure.

I'm fairly sure I miss some of the specific cultural references in "Family "Guy" - does that make me a thick Brit?

I never liked these versions for two reasons - the CGI model work (especially the "new look" Red Dwarf), plus some of the more puerile classic gags were stripped out (eg. the Cat's mermaid)
