Red Dwarf

Blue - S7-E5

Corrected entry: The flashback sequence of Rimmer and Lister searching everyone's lockers is supposed to have happened not long after the accident which killed the crew. Rimmer is wearing his most up to date blue hard-light hologram costume, when he actually should have been wearing his standard cream shirt uniform.

Padzter

Correction: This scene is supposed to have taken place in the alternative dimension, i.e. the one where Kochanski rescued Frankenstein and was put into stasis. Apparently Grant & Naylor never liked the look of the original uniforms, but had no choice owing to budget limitations. They probably took this opportunity to make the uniforms more like they had originally wanted. Kochanski is also wearing a blue uniform - which would have been made for this series, indicating that this was a deliberate difference.

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.
