Critic Reviews for Red Dwarf Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Though undeniably wobbly (often in the literal sense - those sets wouldn't have survived a light breeze), the early episodes of Dwarf have a charming simplicity that was lost as the show's budgets and scope grew.

It's an acquired taste, but people looking for a silly and twisted comedic take on "realistic" sci-fi flicks will most likely become a smeg-head that'll want to own all of the series on DVD.

Marrying the slacker aesthetic of Dark Star to the wry humour of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, it had both the innate melancholy and odd-couple dynamic central to all great sitcoms.

Craig Charles is likable and funny as Dave Lister, as is John-Jules as the cat. However, Chris Barry's Arnold Rimmer comes off as a character common in lots of British sitcoms: the fussy self-important little twit.

From the moment our scouse hero Lister (Craig Charles) wakes up, the jokes zing past like meteorites.
