October 2008 - Ebay Review Of Red Dwarf V.
big fan of Red Dwarf and I've seen them

pilot Red Dwarf episode which is very
interesting as it mentions all the chaos
around writing the script and how American
and UK attitude towards making a show is very
In the interviews it also mentions the
problems they had with series 5 and how some
episodes had to be finished by a different
director, and all the problems caused by a
change of director.
I review this series as excellent, and the
DVD box set as excellent too. :)"
