Red Dwarf

Queeg - S2-E5

Corrected entry: When the ship is hit by a meteor, Rimmer is thrown onto the table. He should have fallen through it, as he is a hologram. (00:04:15)

Dwarf

Correction: A number of posts suggest much the same thing, neglecting the fact that Holly is trying to keep Lister's fragile sanity intact. She arranges for Rimmer to appear to land on the table by projecting a holographic image of him doing just that, as Lister would become unhinged if he saw Rimmer magically passing through solid objects all the time. Besides, according to your logic shouldn't he sink through the floor?

Queeg - S2-E5

Corrected entry: When the meteor hits the ship, everyone is thrown about except for the skutter, who does not move at all. (00:04:10)

Dwarf

Correction: Skutters perform operations outside the ship as well. They probably have magnetized wheels or some sort of stabilizers to keep them from being knocked into space.

Queeg - S2-E5

Corrected entry: At the end of the chess game where Queeg checkmates Holly, you can see the view-monitor of the game, with almost all of the pieces still on it.

Correction: That's the whole point. It's 'fool's mate', checkmate in three moves, with only a few pieces moved. Clever plotting, not a mistake.

Queeg - S2-E5

Corrected entry: When Queeg is telling Rimmer to work on the computer, how can Rimmer do this if he's a hologram and therefore can't touch anything?

Correction: As Red Dwarf is designed to support a holographic crewmember, obviously all its systems would be set up in such a way that a hologram would still be able to use them - not much point otherwise.
