Red Dwarf

M-Corp - S12-E5

Other mistake: When Cat picks up the can of Leopard lager which is invisible to Lister, he shakes it, pops the cap and sprays Lister with foam. The foam is visible but the can remains invisible, and that makes no sense. If we are seeing the scene from Cat's point of view the can and foam should both be visible, and if it is from Lister's then neither should be.

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Other mistake: When Lister (in Rimmer's body) pleads the Cat to lend him his body, he says "how else can I pilot White Midget?" In the next scene, the Blue Midget is being piloted, and White Midget was originally abandoned for Starbug. (This mistake was admitted by the crew). (00:21:45)

Backwards - S3-E1

Other mistake: At the start of the episode, there is a spoof Star Wars-type caption, which spools up the screen very quickly. Too quickly to be read, in fact... which may explain why few people have noticed that the last line of the caption, "And now the Saga Continuums...", is written twice. (00:00:20)

Marooned - S3-E2

Other mistake: When the meteor hits Starbug, there are no stars outside the front of the ship at all. (00:07:20)

Psirens - S6-E1

Other mistake: Kryten places Rimmer's light bee on the floor, then begins the process of reinitialising him. As the process finishes and Rimmer looks at Lister (who looks away), the light bee, which should be hovering within his torso projecting his image, is still visible on the floor between his feet.

Waiting For God - S1-E4

Other mistake: In the picture of the cat wars between the Red Hats and the Blue Hats, the hats are orange instead of blue. (00:19:00)

Legion - S6-E2

Other mistake: When Lister gets hit in the face by the telekinetic wine, the level of wine does not go down in the glass. (00:16:15)

Dwarf

Only The Good... - S8-E8

Other mistake: When Rimmer tries to silence the vending machine, he covers up the input microphone with stickers instead of covering the speaker just above it. (00:05:05)

Dwarf

The End - S1-E1

Other mistake: At the start of Rimmer's exam, the invigilator orders the students to "turn over their papers and start". Rimmer reads one side of the paper, then turns it over to read another question. The back of the paper should have been blank as otherwise there would be no point asking the students to keep the papers face down before reading the questions. (00:15:30)

Legion - S6-E2

Other mistake: When Legion stabs his left hand, everyone grabs and shakes their left hands - except Lister, who grabs and shakes his RIGHT hand. (00:22:40)

The End - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Rimmer unclogs the chicken soup dispenser nozzle, he works on the back of the opening in the wall. When he orders chicken soup, the shelf drops down from above where Rimmer was working, thus above where the nozzle is located. (00:03:00)

Dwarf

Legion - S6-E2

Other mistake: When Rimmer extracts his own light bee, it disappears with him. (00:25:10)

Dwarf

Me2 - S1-E6

Other mistake: When Lister reads Rimmer's diary, he reads the first entry, then his aunt's birthday in July and then the entry for Gazpacho Soup Day in November. Each time he looks for the next entry he flicks though the pages, yet every time he reads, it is from the start of the diary. (00:15:25)

Padzter

Better Than Life - S2-E2

Other mistake: The tax letter and Rimmer's mother's letter are both already opened before Lister takes the letters out. As there is no one else aboard Red Dwarf, the letters would not have been checked by anyone so they should still be sealed. Also, not all of the letters are already open, just the two that Rimmer receives.

Dimension Jump - S4-E5

Other mistake: Kryten sees Ace's ship before it materialises. (00:12:55)

Dwarf

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Other mistake: The milkshake and toffee crisp come out of a different vending machine to where they were ordered. (00:01:50 - 00:06:55)

Dwarf

Backwards - S3-E1

Other mistake: In the bar when Rimmer and Kryten are on stage, Kryten eats a boiled egg then drinks a glass of water, yet he cannot eat or drink because he is a mechanoid.

Balance of Power - S1-E3

Other mistake: Rimmer's badge of rank is missing from his short sleeved uniform. All other uniforms in the series have the badge. (00:15:10)

Dwarf

Justice - S4-E3

Other mistake: Rimmer's long-service medals are absent from his ceremonial uniform during the trial. 17.15. (00:17:15)

Dwarf

Backwards - S3-E1

Other mistake: It is established in the backwards version of Earth, that all writing is reversed and is spelled backwards. However, there are some inconsistencies, as in some instances the writing has been mirrored to appear reversed, whilst in some instances the writing has just been spelled out backwards. For example, car number plates and signs on display in the background have been mirrored to appear reversed, but the newspaper that Kryten reads, the Nodnol sign and the Sensational Reverse Brothers poster appear normally typed out, and not as the mirror image that other aspects of this world have.
