Confidence and Paranoia - S1-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When the skutters try to move Lister in the Medi-bay, you can see the cable which pulls Lister's chair in the bottom right of the screen.

The End - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer leans onto the table in the drive room, watch his tie. It should disappear with his arm but it remains visible.

Epideme - S7-E7

Continuity mistake: When Lister punches up the Leviathan's destination, it reads 'Theta 4'. However, in the next scene in Starbug's medibay, Lister says that the Leviathan was headed to Delta 7.

Queeg - S2-E5

Audio problem: During the conversation in which Holly wants to prove he has an IQ of 6000 (while Lister and the Cat are scrubbing the floor), there is a brief moment where you can see the TV Holly is on (at an angle). You can hear sound coming from him, but his lips aren't moving.

White Hole - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: When the Cat and Lister are trying to cook an egg with a bicycle powered hair drier, you can see the Cat holding a frying pan. When Lister gives up and gets off the bike, Cat picks up a spatula with his other hand and starts poking the egg with it. However, in the next shot, he is shown with both hands on his hips. It's an instant cut with the same conversation continuing, so he didn't have time to put them down.

Marooned - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: At the start in the cockpit of Starbug, the green screen behind Lister is visible instead of the painted starfield that should be there.

Polymorph - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: Kryten removes the polymorph underpants and throws them under the covers of Lister's bed. When he checks the bed and pulls out a snake the pants are now on top of the covers (even though he says they're gone) and the covers themselves are now arranged differently.

Justice - S4-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When the crew are standing before the Judgement computer (when Lister is worrying that he will be sent to prison) if you look above Lister's head you can see a microphone bob up and down into shot.

Demons & Angels - S5-E5

Revealing mistake: The pyrotechnic charges are visible under the 'High' Cat and Kryten's robes, before they are shot. There is also a wire trailing behind Kryten and running up his left leg, presumably a means of detonating the charges.

Better Than Life - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: In the observation dome, the borders of the blue screen used to project the image of space behind Lister and Rimmer can be seen around the dome.

Balance of Power - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: The food dispenser in the drive room is now in the place that the door to the Captain's office was in the previous episodes.

Future Echoes - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: The sign above the stasis booth in this episode is different than what it was in the previous episode, "The End".

Justice - S4-E3

Factual error: The justice computer states that Rimmer is guilty of 1167 counts of 2nd degree murder, each carrying a sentence of 8 years giving a total of 9328 years. This is equivalent to 1166 counts.

Legion - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: When Legion stabs his left hand, everyone grabs and shakes their left hands - except Lister, who grabs and shakes his RIGHT hand.

Demons & Angels - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: After the crew realise that the matter paddle has made 2 copies of Red Dwarf, Kryten says something along the lines of, "When I threw the machine in reverse...", but it wasn't actually him who threw the machine in reverse, it was Lister.

Backwards - S3-E1

Plot hole: If everything goes backwards, shouldn't Kryten and Rimmer have got fired, done their job and then got hired? Rimmer & Kryten discovered that everything was backwards in the cafe earlier in the episode. At the club they did their act and then got fired. Put this 'forwards' and it becomes wrong.

The Inquisitor - S5-E2

Plot hole: Allman does not remember his trial when the Inquisitor erases him, yet Lister and Kryten do remember their trial when they are sentenced.

Kryten - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: When the crew board the Nova 5, Rimmer's shoulder brushes against a hanging plant which moves very slightly. As he is a hologram this would be impossible.

Lemons - S10-E3

Audio problem: When they are chasing Jesus through the market, Lister's mouth is out of sync when he's shouting.

Fathers & Suns - S10-E2

Continuity mistake: When Lister notices the video, the silhouette of a flashing blue light is cast on the table (to the left of screen). In the next shot, there is no sign of the flashing blue light.
