I'm very much OK with this

Count me in.

“So that's meant Doug Naylor and the team undertaking a painstaking restoration process”

Now when it says painstaking, do they mean frame by frame individual touch ups to every single frame of every episode?
Or fixing the bits that look a bit shitty (lighting and shadow correction)?

“Painstaking” when it comes to restoration means hours per frame for the output of something magical.

If they only mean dedicated, it might be a let down.
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

We only have the bodysnatcher collection here because my brother won it in a contest before it came out. The remastered episodes were horrible, but the collection did have the awesome special features that red dwarf is known for.

The contest was: in 25 words or less, what is the best episode and why?
My brothers entry of “episodes 1-52, because it’s Red Dwarf”
Was one of 5 winning entries for the bodysnatcher collection and it got sent to him about a week before it hit stores, it has been watched once in the decade since lol
I think those were shown on BBC when they repeated them. I wasn't a fan of those either but it was done to make RD more "up to date" apparently

Holly: We are talking jape of the decade. We are talking April, May, June, July and August fool. That's right. I am Queeg.
Lister, The Cat, Rimmer: What?
Holly: Queeg never existed. It was me all along.
Lister, The Cat, Rimmer: *What?*
Holly: Wheeze of the week, mate.
The Cat: It was a joke?
Holly: Going round in circles for 14 months. Getting my information from the Junior Color Encyclopedia of Space. The respect you have for me is awesome, innit?
Lister: So you mean you staged the whole thing?
Holly: [in Queeg's voice] That's right, suckers.
Holly: [in his voice] And the moral of the story is, "Appreciate what you've got", because basically I'm fantastic.

The Red Dwarf Blu-Ray Box Art is Smegging Beautiful

Us Dwarfers were pretty disappointed to hear that the Blu-Ray box sets of series 1-8 have missed their December deadline and will instead be arriving in January 2019, but the Despair Squid has left us something in the form of brand new box art.

If you're thinking "this is worse than playing away at Leeds," take heart – the box art is actually really cool, with a new retro/outrun kinda style that we really like.

Image

More good news: as you might have guessed from all those discs, there's a smeg-load of content in the collection. There's an entire disc dedicated to extras from the rare Bodysnatcher Collection, including the episode itself, documentaries from the time, and The End: The Original Assembly.

The box set is a large box containing two smaller boxes, one featuring Red Dwarf and containing series 1-4, and one emblazoned with Starbug and containing series 5-8. The episodes have all been restored and upscaled to HD, although how well that's turned out remains to be seen.

The set will be released on 14th January 2019, and can be preordered from Amazon now for just 39 dollarpounds and 99 pennycents. Delivery locations are said to include Ganymede, Titan, Lunar City Seven and Tarka Dal's abode in the Great Vindaloovian Empire. Smoke us a kipper, we'll be back for January.

Backwards was my dads and brothers absolute favourite ever episode (of the whole show that is) I like a bunch more, but I have to say backwards was the season highlight
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.
