Red Dwarf

Red Dwarf (1988)

5 corrected entries in Marooned

Marooned - S3-E2

Corrected entry: Rimmer says to keep page sixty one of "Lolita", but Lister pulls out the left-side page and pockets it. As odd-numbered pages in books are on the right side, meaning he must have kept page sixty. You can see the front cover quite is the right way up so the book would not have been upside down.

Dwarf

Correction: It depends on how the book is numbered. Odd numbers are not *always* on the right. I own several books where page 1 and two face each other.

Phixius

Marooned - S3-E2

Corrected entry: In "Marooned", Lister asks Rimmer about how he lost his virginity and Rimmer says he lost it so a girl from cadet school called Sandra but in "Thanks For the Memory" (series 2), Rimmer says he only had sex once and that was with Evonne McGruder.

Correction: Rimmer is lying, trying to sound like he has been with more women. He was very drunk back in "Memory" and is trying to cover up that mishap (Hence his comment about the walnut interior of the Bently).

Soylent Purple

Marooned - S3-E2

Corrected entry: Why does Lister ask Rimmer about losing his virginity? Rimmer told Lister truthfully in Series 2 (episode "Thanks For The Memory") that he had only had sex once in his life - with Yvonne McGruder. When the crew erased their memories, they did not erase Rimmer telling Lister about Yvonne - so why doesn't he remember in Marooned?

Correction: Lister is in the process of freezing to death and trying to make conversation to keep himself alive and alert. He may simply not recall the earlier conversation, or be trying to get more detail from Rimmer.

Marooned - S3-E2

Corrected entry: In the scene where Lister is so desperate with hunger that he eats the only thing still available (a can of dog food), Craig Charles (who plays Lister) was not acting. He really DID eat it (it was cat food, which apparently "looked better", but the difference is minimal). Not surprisingly, this scene was completed in only one take...

Correction: If you watch the DVD with the commentary, it is in fact tuna fish made to look like dog food.

Marooned - S3-E2

Corrected entry: Rimmer is seen pressing a button before speaking into a microphone to send out a distress message. But Rimmer is supposed to be a hologram, an intangible being...and as such, can't touch things. HE is not capable of touching things until the Red Dwarf crew meet Legion in Series VI - then Legion upgrades Rimmer with a "Hard-Light" holographic drive, making him a solid being at last.

Correction: However, it's possible for the radio to have holographic controls as well, perhaps reacting to the presence of a light bee, since in an emergency situation, a hologram may be the only one uninjured enough to send a distress signal.

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?
