    Anyone got it yet? I got mine yesterday, as usual for Red Dwarf DVD's packed to the rafters full of extras plus all the episodes well put together over 3 dvd's.

    It's the same crap packaging as with the series 7, all 3 DVDs piled on top of each other on a single spindle :mad: It's a good job I bought a few 3 x DVD empty cases the last time.

    Are you sure?

    I'm certain I watched S8 in widescreen on what was probably ondigital - I even remember reading an article in a home entertainment magazine about how much more you see with WS - It used S8 as a reference.

    I only ever saw the original BBC2 airing and that was definitely fullframe, I guess they could have cut the top and bottom and shown it in widescreen on digital but I am 99% sure it was shot 1.33:1

    Also all the Deleted Scenes on the DVD are fullframe and if it was shot in widescreen shouldnt they be widescreen?

    I noticed this creeping into other films as well the Frighteners had all three disks on one spindle. You just know this was thought up by an accountant :lease: stop this now
