Queeg - S2-E5

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

New this month Suggested correction: This type of "mistake" has been posted over and over again. If Rimmer can sit on the chair, he can turn it. Holly is trying to keep Lister's fragile sanity intact and so she moves objects like the chair according to Rimmer's moves. (The chair might be a hologram, too!). Besides, by the line of reasoning in these posts Rimmer should sink through the floor.

Whether or not the correction is valid based on Holly's action or the idea of a holographic chair, holograms most definitely can not interact with real objects, such as turning the chair. However, that does not mean they'd "sink through the floor." They are projections of light the same as projecting an image or a movie onto a screen, albeit in 3-dimensions. An image projected onto a wall wouldn't sink. Even if the projector was moved to point down, the image would just be projected onto the floor.

Holoship - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer loses his intelligence, he wipes his eyes with his right hand. In the next shot he has both hands on the keyboard and is looking over his left shoulder.

Dwarf

Demons & Angels - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: After the Cat incapacitates Lister, the Cat complains about his collar being untidy, then steps aside. The next shot shows Lister stood on his own and the Cat is not visible at all. There was no time for the Cat to walk that fast between shots.

Cassandra - S8-E4

Revealing mistake: Holly's left shirt collar is visible when he talks to Lister about turning into a dog.

Dwarf

Back in the Red (3) - S8-E3

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer is typing on the keyboard, what he is saying does not match what he is typing. He is typing randomly.

xx:xx:xx

Dwarf

Polymorph - S3-E3

Factual error: The polymorph goes through a metal pipe and a tap which bulges and becomes mis-shapen. The tap then changes back to its original shape, which is impossible.

xx:xx:xx

Dwarf

Timeslides - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: Kryten needs to ask what a pub is, yet in the episode "Backwards" he and Rimmer worked in one for three weeks as the comedy act "The Sensational Reverse Brothers", and, later, were involved in a brawl in the same pub. Originally, the episodes were to be shown in a different order, which explains why the mistake occurs, but doesn't excuse it.
