Only The Good... - S8-E8

Revealing mistake: When the Cat, Lister and Kryten are walking and the Cat is complaining about rock, keep an eye on the background. They start walking just before a set of steps, then do a complete loop back to the steps for no reason.

Continuity mistake: The Cat's earrings disappear when the emohawk attacks him.

00:20:00

Justice - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode, after the simulant has strangled itself, it is lying flat on his back. When the Cat comes up behind it to attack it with a spade, the simulant is half sitting up. 26.20.

Meltdown - S4-E6

Revealing mistake: When Ghandi explodes, there is a single shot where he had disappeared before the explosion goes off.

00:22:35

Dwarf

Bodyswap - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: During the Scrabble game, Lister (in Rimmer's body) jumps out of his seat and you can hear the chair scrape across the floor. As Lister is a hologram, he should not have been able to move the chair.

00:14:45

Dwarf

Parallel Universe - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: When Lister and Rimmer first meet their femaile opposites, Lister takes a step back and brushes against Rimmer's hologramatic shirt.

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer hides under the table, he is not visible beneath the table when Lister and Rimmer walk in.

00:18:40

Dwarf

Parallel Universe - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Lister and Rimmer talk to Holly at the disco, Lister's arm is on the table. When the camera angle changes, it is on his lap below the table.

00:21:15

Dwarf

Me2 - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: In the sleeping quarters when the cat is courting, he says 'If I believed that for one minute, I'd go crazy'. You can see Lister is mouthing the line.

Dwarf

The Last Day - S3-E6

Plot hole: In this episode Kryten has no idea how to operate a bazookoid, yet earlier on in 'Polymorph' he was able to change the settings of one from standard to heat-seek and fire it without a problem.

00:24:45

Polymorph - S3-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When the bazookoid blasts hit the Polymorph near the end, you can see the stand that's holding the Polymorph at the bottom of the screen.

00:24:45

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

The Inquisitor - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: After the future Kryten cuts off the Inquisitor's hand with the chainsaw, he kicks the glove which lands about 7 feet away from Lister. In the next shot Lister simply bends down and picks the glove up from in front of him.

00:13:45

Craig Bryant

Thanks For The Memory - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: In 'Thanks For the Memory', both Lister and The Cat injure their left feet when they drop the gravestone; but The Cat is seen to be wearing a plaster cast on his RIGHT foot

00:12:10 - 00:27:00

Psirens - S6-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Rimmer asks if Lister is going to fire with tin cans and banana peel, a boom mic can be seen on the right side of the screen above Rimmer's head.

00:10:05

Dwarf

Psirens - S6-E1

Plot hole: When Rimmer is sitting on the swivel chair, he manages to turn the seat, impossible as he is a hologram.

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

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: After Nirvanah and Rimmer have sex, the bedsheets where Rimmer was sitting are messed up. When Rimmer is transported away they are smooth and flat.

Tikka To Ride - S7-E1

Continuity mistake: When the gunman ties the cable to himself, he walks past a window, then in the next shot he is stood in the centre of the same window.
