Better Than Life - S2-E2

New this month Corrected entry: At the restaurant, the guide hands Lister his caviar vindaloo, which he states is "half rice, half chips and more bread and butter to follow", but there are visibly no chips on the plate. There are caviar, vindaloo, rice and potato wedges shown on the plate, but no chips.

New this month Correction: The potato wedges are the "chips." It's a British term for fried potatoes or what Americans may call "fries."

Potato wedges and chips are made from potato, but are still two different things. If the guide wanted to say it was half potato wedges, then he could have just said "half potato wedges."

New this month Correction: In this case, no. I've been to many places where the restaurant makes no distinctions in why type of fries or chips they serve. I've been served fries that look exactly like the potato wedges Lister got before.

Better Than Life - S2-E2

Corrected entry: In this episode Rimmer receives a letter telling him his father is dead, however in an earlier episode he said that his father committed suicide. He already knew his father was dead, so why was he so shocked by the letter? And for that matter, why did his mother tell him his father was dead?

Correction: He says "...before that rather unfortunate suicide business." The joke in it is that Rimmer's Father was saying that with a short haircut, you can handle anything, but then something came up and he obviously couldn't deal with it so he attempted suicde. Rimmer doesn't actually say that his father killed himself, just "unfortunate suicide business" which could mean he attempted suicide, but failed. It's a long shot, but possible, especially when considering Rimmer's usual poor choice of words and his tendancy to crave attention/lie about his family.

Better Than Life - S2-E2

Corrected entry: In the scene where Admiral Rimmer signs the copy of "My Incredible Career" , the picture of Admiral Rimmer on the cover is of Rimmer's uniform from Series 1, as opposed to the Admiral's uniform he's wearing a couple of seconds earlier when we see him seated.

Correction: The uniform may have changed between the time Rimmer supposedly wrote the book and the present meal.

Better Than Life - S2-E2

Corrected entry: When Rimmer arrives with his girlfriend and his seven kids, watch the sky. Whenever the camera is on Rimmer and the car, its a bright blue sky. Yet when the camera is focused on Lister and the Cat, the sky is darker and more cloudy.

Correction: This is not a mistake, it was done that way intentionally. It's designed to show the basic difference in the game make-up for each character. When looking at Rimmer it is from Listers point of view, which throughout the game is basically fun and sunny,and therefore sunny, when looking at Lister it is from Rimmer's viewpoint, which as you see from the episode is pretty horrible in general, and therefore cloudy.

Mistakes

Kryten tells everyone that the matter paddle transmits matter in digital form from one place to another at the speed of light - he is very clear on this point. He then locates Waxworld, which is 200,000 light years away. Okay - so when they use the matter paddle to transmit themselves to Waxworld, why doesn't it take them 200,000 years to get there?
