...Second V Extra Classified!

We just get more and more imaginative with headlines here at G&T. Anyway,THE SFX OF RED DWARF V has shown up on the BBFC, running at the stupendous time of 30m 46s, classified PG, and directed by and starring Mike Tucker. This of course can only be the behind-the-scenes video shot by Tucker during the shooting of Series V, shown at DJX; see Ian's DJX report, and also Cappsy's Series V Preview. The extra will also feature a Tucker commentary, as mentioned here. From what I've seen of it (a shaky handheld recording of his DJ appearance), it'll quite literally be the best extra in the world. The only thing better would be to see Peter Wragg go on for hours about different types of glue and the clever ways wires are hidden on model shots.

Also showing up is Series 4 of Brittas, also classified as a PG, and running to a total of 229 minutes precisely. After a relatively quiet couple of months, things are happening again...


YAY! I like effects featurettes. :)

Me saying exactly the same things, there. Sorry for the clash.

It does look fucking brilliat, though. For those of us who've already seen the footage we also get the commentary. Brillaint, just brilliant.

Now, now, Cappsy. When will you learn that G&T is the only site to be allowed to do Dwarf news? I'm ashamed of you. (Despite the fact that you both got the info originally, and have also seen the footage in question, unlike me. This means nothing.)

The BBFC classifications list wouldn't work for me either, incidentally. Maybe it happens for a few minutes each time they update it, or something.

Heh, just you wait until I actually get a proper news news system and I can update at the push of a button. I WILL RULE YOU.

Or perhaps not, but never mind.

I will look forward to seeing it again this year, actually. It's a brilliant little film.

Actually, I do like the Changed headline. It works very well.

But then so does the line in the episode.

As someone who knows nothing about this extra, the news that it is thirty minutes long has clearly raised my expectations for the V and VI DVDs one notch higher. These will be the best DVDs of anything ever.

Indeed. But nothing will compare with getting the live commentary us jumpers got ;)
