The Big Three-O - S1-E11

Sergeant Emma - S3-E20

Audio problem: At the end of the show when Alice is blowing the whistle, the whole family comes to the top of the stairs. Mike says "Alice, it's 6 o'clock in the morning" Watch his mouth. It looks as though he curses and the (curse) word was dubbed out.

Our Vines Have Tender Apes - S3-E20

Audio problem: Towards the end of the episode, the castaways read Tongo's note that he can't take them back with him due to how he behaved with the gorilla. Mr. Howell yells "we won't tell anyone!" followed by other random comments from the others for Tongo to come back. Tongo leaves and as the camera pulls away from the castaways, the same audio repeats itself even though this time doesn't match what anyone is saying.

Cheer and Present Danger - S2-E8

End Run - S3-E3

Audio problem: When Michael is forced to do "errands" for Brennen, they stop by Jonathan Carver's house to get numbers from him for a voice key. The code played back at the facility is 71348. He says "3" in a medium pitch (tone) at the house, but it is high pitched when played back at the facility; he says "8" in a medium pitch, and it's also high pitched later. And finally he says "9" in a low pitch and it's played back medium pitch. Also very obvious is the fact that Jonathan never says "1" or "7."

Fear No More - S1-E20

Audio problem: As Carlos is giving his speech at the barbecue, Julie sees Zach and says to Susan "Oh God". After cutting to a shot of Zach and his father it shows Julie and Susan again. If you look to the right of the shot you will see Carlos' face is just looking in front of him and not speaking, but you can still hear him giving his speech whilst he is in shot.

The End - S1-E1

Audio problem: When Lister and Rimmer see Cat just after Holly explains how he evolved, Rimmer runs at Cat screaming before he passes through him and we hear a crash off screen to indicate Rimmer has just run in to something. He is a hologram and is not solid, so no sound should be heard. [The original version did not have this mistake. The sound effect was added for the now defunct Remastered series.] (00:27:10)

Holy Crap - S2-E2

Audio problem: When Peter introduces the pope to his friends at work, and he is saying "Remember when we got that stripper for Charlie and it turned out to be his son? I think this is gonna top it" or something along those lines), Peter's mouth very obviously does not sync up with the words being said.
