Red Dwarf

Backwards - S3-E1

Corrected entry: Throughout this episode writing is backwards. Why, in a backwards universe, would writing be backwards? Surely it would be the correct way around, just that the people in this universe would read it backwards.

Correction: It's a fictional universe. The writers can create whatever customs/rules they like.

Backwards - S3-E1

Corrected entry: If you look behind Rimmer and Kryten in the cafe, you see a menu board with all the foods spelt backwards, reading right to left. Nothing wrong with that, except the letters are still all 'forwards', instead of a mirror image as would happen if everything was reversed. The same is true for the 'Nodnol 871 selim' marker.

Correction: As all the signs seen in the backwards world have the words spelled backwards, with the actual letters the correct way round, it's reasonable to say that that's just how things work in that reality.

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?
