I didn't bother preordering it because I did not think there would be a problem getting something as popular as Red Dwarf off the shelf, but I have been to Asda, Tesco & Sainsbury's superstores today, and none of them are even stocking Red Dwarf X on Blu Ray. Two of them are stocking the DVD, but neither of them actually had one.

Wankers.
Probably have more luck at HMV, I believe they're carrying their own exclusive edition.

I got my bluray yesterday.

Haven't put it on though. I am a bit dismayed that cast commentaries are not listed but hopefully they are on there.

I am doing a rewatch and listen to the commentaries of the old series, I am on 4 just now.

I find the commentaries are quite enjoyable.

I love Red Dwarf commentaries.

There are no commentaries. They rushed the Blu Ray out too fast I reckon.

That's a shame commentaries were always fun.

Re: Red Dwarf series 9 (or is it 10?) in 2012 confirmed by Craig Charl

Red Dwarf X has finally got me convinced to upgrade to the DVDs for the rest of the series. It's been too long since I've enjoyed them via the medium of home video, especially given the Dave repeat cycle. I've ordered 1-6.

The question is, do I also get Seasons 7,8, and Back to Earth?

Um.

DVDs are on the cusp of being replaced, and anyone that thinks that a Bluray isn't a DVD is an idiot.

I have Red Dwarf X on Blu-ray!

If you can point me to links of the earlier series on Blu-ray, I'll validate what I think you're saying.

Anyway, to clarify, I'm upgrading from the eps I taped on VHS off TV back in the day.

I think what he's saying is discs as a format are going away and digital downloads and streaming are the way to go.

That's how I deciphered Guy's rambling as well.

I hope it'll be quite a while. I'm stubborn and will cling to the physical media as long as possible.

I'm slowly easing off the physical media. I'm only buying the disks of the movies I absolutely can't live without and streaming everything else.

There's no "my precious" factor with digital downloads.

Have you seen the smallest thumb drives they have these days?

32 gig and the size of a paperclip.

They have the technology.

There's a new non disk shaped medium preparing to strike.

It's just a question of what shape it's going to be and how it's going to interface with the player.

^Streaming and digital downlaods are only useful if you have a decent internet connection that is capable of supporting streaming and fast downloading.

And not everyone has this (at least not yet), for example in the UK you can talk about a digital divide.

Um. Try reading what I typed again, because I didn't advocate downloads.

Efficient yes, but no collectability value.

If our media can't be displayed on a bookshelf and our friends turn green from envy, what's the point?

Disks last ten years before they rot and they're doomed from a small smudge or a scratch.

Imagine an 80s game cartridge, or an 8 track, that has 7 seasons of tng hardwired into it. Each solid harddrive that connects with a player that plugs into your tv has an entire series on it of hundred of episodes and it's mostly indestructable comapared to a cd, dvd or bluray.

Shape and size questionable?

Wow.

It's going to be the revenge the Pogs strikes back.
