Red Dwarf

Correction: It is not a boom mic. In the wide shot of the room you can see there is part of the damaged ceiling hanging down and swaying, causing the shadow.

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Corrected entry: When Rimmer (in Lister's body) is scoffing food under his sheets, Lister (as Rimmer) wakes up and leaps off the top bunk and he makes a thud as he hits the floor, now seeing Lister is a hologram in this scene he shouldn't have made a noise on impact with the floor.

Correction: As he is a hologram, he shouldn't be able to lay in abed without falling through, use the lifts, or get any traction on the floor when walking. If you can accept that he can also see and hear despite being made of light, you should be able to accept that Holly has programed the light-bee to emit fotstep sounds when he walks/lands to make him appear more human.

Soylent Purple

Skipper - S12-E6

Plot hole: Kryten explains that the quantum skipper must be recharged after every use, and the time this takes must be must be taken into account. This is an important plot device the first time Rimmer uses it, but it is conveniently forgotten for the rest of the episode.

Kryten - S2-E1

Question: When Holly is saying about how he has changed music he says that because of the 2 new notes he's made instruments would be bigger. "Triangles will have four sides. Piano keyboards the length of zebra crossings. Course, women will have to be banned from playing the cello." I don't understand the joke about the cello part. Could someone please tell me what he means?

Answer: The cello is a large four-stringed instrument, which, when it is played, stands vertically on the floor between the player's legs (assuming they are seated). If it is to grow as large as the other instuments mentioned will, it would require a rather unseemly lack of femininity to be able to encompass it with the legs.
