Season 4
28 May 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

Season 4 is another great season of Red Dwarf although it feels more settled and less fresh than season 3. All the episodes are excellent but "Dimension Jump" stands out as a series classic and one of the best-written episode. "Meltdown" is probably one of the most fun episodes of the entire show with a unique concept and fun execution (the Elvis impersonator being quite impressive especially). Ed Bye, the director of this series, brings the various locations to life quite well.

Just a whole load of fun isn't it?

Series average based on ratings of all episodes: 8.83/10
