Robocop (1987)

Revealing mistake: When RoboCop is getting into his car after remembering about his former life, and breaking out of the police station, look at the bottom of the screen. You can see that Peter Weller is only wearing half of the RoboCop costume, his right leg comes into shot as he gets into the car. (00:46:40)

Short Circuit 2 (1988)

Continuity mistake: When Johnny is cleaning the window to see outside, the shape made on the window is different during the inside shots than it is on the outside shots.

Short Circuit 2 (1988)

Visible crew/equipment: When Johnny is spinning the two robbers around, you can tell that he is actually holding dummies. In the close up shots of the robbers, you can see them kicking their legs, but in the wide shots of the room, they are rigid and lifeless.

Short Circuit 2 (1988)

Audio problem: Quite a few scenes in the film appear to have been dubbed over. Most of them are at the start after Ben and Fred have to keep Johnny 5 indoors. The mouth movements don't seem to match up with what is being said. If you look at the mouth's of the actors, there appears to be quite a few strong swearwords in the film, which were probably removed because it's a kids film.

Robocop 2 (1990)

Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the film, RoboCop is in his police car, and it gets hit with a rocket and it flips over, and then slides to a stop. It is quite obvious that RoboCop is not in the front of the car, and that a silver plate has been placed in the driver's seat to make it look like he is.

Robocop 2 (1990)

Continuity mistake: When RoboCop is at the Nuke hideout, he looks around the various artifacts that the gang have stolen. One of them is the skeleton of Elvis in a glass coffin. When we see the coffin from RoboCop's POV, (he is standing to the right of the coffin), there is a picture of the real Elvis to the left of Elvis's skull. When we cut to a wide shot of the room, RoboCop is still standing to the right of the coffin, but the picture beside Elvis's head has moved to the right hand side of Elvis's skull. A guitar which is sitting beside the coffin is pointing inwards during the Robo POV shots, but in the wide shots, is pointing outwards.

A Crane's Critique - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: Martin goes out to a baseball game with a famous writer that Frasier and Niles admire. While he is out, they read one of his books he accidentally left behind. When the author returns, he ends up holding the pages of the book in his hand, whilst standing in front of the fireplace. In one shot he is holding them in his left hand, but when the view cuts to another angle, he has them in his right hand. This occurs just before he goes outside to throw the pages off the balcony. (00:20:25)

Cassandra - S8-E4

Other mistake: Cassandra says that all the canaries will be dead in 1 hour, with the exception of Rimmer, Kryten, Lister, Cat and Kochanski. However, Kill Crazy was still knocked out in the transport vehicle and presumably would have survived too.

Suggested correction: But Cassandra was known to lie if it suited her purpose, she said that Lister would harpoon Arnold through the head and kill him but that's not what really happened either.

Yes, Cassandra lied about Lister shooting Arnold through the head with a harpoon, but that was an attempt to stop Lister from killing her. Mentioning which of the canaries will survive had no impact on any of her plans, so not mentioning Kill Crazy survived is still incorrect on her behalf.

Gunmen of the Apocalypse - S6-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When the simulant has beamed on board Starbug, Lister and The Cat get up slowly from the table. Look closely, and you can see the shadow of a boom mic cast on Lister and The Cat. (00:07:50)

Demons & Angels - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: When Lister swings the axe at The Cat and hits the door frame, the axe head bends. When Lister pulls the axe out, its head is fine again. (00:22:30)

Timeslides - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: We are told that it is impossible to move outside the frame of a slide, yet when we are shown the slide of young Lister and his band, all we see is the band on stage but the crew move freely about the pub. (00:11:40)

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: When Kryten takes the syringe out of Lister's head, the needle doesn't come out of the syringe properly, so Kryten puts his hand in front of the needle to try and hide the mistake. (00:05:25)

Parallel Universe - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: In the quarters of the female versions of the crew, the newspaper clippings and certificates on the wall still have the name 'Arnold' on them, and not the female equivalent, as it was supposed to be. (00:23:15)

Season 2 generally

Continuity mistake: Lister and Rimmer's bunk room looks exactly the same in the flashback scenes during this series as it does in the present time. In the first series it looked completely different, so surely the look should have changed slightly for the flashback scenes?

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. (00:09:55)

Better Than Life - S2-E2

Other mistake: The tax letter and Rimmer's mother's letter are both already opened before Lister takes the letters out. As there is no one else aboard Red Dwarf, the letters would not have been checked by anyone so they should still be sealed. Also, not all of the letters are already open, just the two that Rimmer receives.

Kryten - S2-E1

Trivia: Rimmer refers to people who speak Esperanto as "Esperantinos", but they are actually called "Esperantists". Not really a mistake because he's often shown to be an idiot, but worth knowing.

Me2 - S1-E6

Other mistake: When Lister reads Rimmer's diary, he reads the first entry, then his aunt's birthday in July and then the entry for Gazpacho Soup Day in November. Each time he looks for the next entry he flicks though the pages, yet every time he reads, it is from the start of the diary. (00:15:25)

Balance of Power - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: The cigarette butts that Lister supposedly tips out of his lager can were obviously in between his hand and the can, and not in the can at all. (00:19:25)

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. (00:16:15)
