xx:xx:xx

Season 6 generally

Revealing mistake: In several episodes, but mostly in series 6, we see lots of profile camera shots of just Lister and The Cat at the front of the cockpit in Starbug. Quite a few times you will see Lister mouth The Cat's lines so he knows when to start speaking and what to say.

Revealing mistake: When the Cat says 'not if you believe those lying cartoons' you can see Lister mouth the line.

Trojan - S10-E1

Revealing mistake: Crawford goes through the teleport to transport herself to the Space Station. But in the next shot, Crawford can be seen quickly leaving the shot as if she's still there.

Casual Person

Pete (1) - S8-E6

Revealing mistake: In Spud Duty, the potatoes are obviously just cardboard cut outs.

Casual Person

Pete (2) - S8-E7

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer and Lister are being pushed out the Captain's office due to the fight effects, you can tell they are being pushed on a hidden trolley because you can hear some sort of rattling sound.

Future Echoes - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When the future echo Rimmer leaves the drive room and the actual Rimmer walks in, you can clearly see the line caused by the split screen.

Casual Person

Backwards - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer stands up from underneath the table, just before he says, "Thanks for your support" to Lister, listen very carefully and you can hear the stunt director saying "Action!" backwards. This shot was the splice point between the reversed and the regular footage. (I know this mistake is listed as being in the 'backwards version' on the DVD, but it is in the regular broadcast version too - you just have to listen harder for it.)

Gunmen of the Apocalypse - S6-E3

Revealing mistake: At the start of the episode, we see Lister in black and white talking to Loretta. Then we cut back to what's really happening, he is playing on the AR console. Look at the door behind him, you can see Kryten's hand sticking out in the doorway. He is supposed to rush in and start talking, but you can see him waiting off camera to be told when to enter the room.

Padzter

Entangled - S10-E4

Revealing mistake: When they change Professor Edgington from ape form to human form, the human form is obviously a lifeless mannequin.

Casual Person

Psirens - S6-E1

Revealing mistake: As Lister tries to sharpen/shorten his nails after getting out of deep sleep, you will see just before he stops that one nail snaps at the finger. He continues as if nothing happens, holding his hand still, as if it was still in the sharpener.

Mistakes

Kryten tells everyone that the matter paddle transmits matter in digital form from one place to another at the speed of light - he is very clear on this point. He then locates Waxworld, which is 200,000 light years away. Okay - so when they use the matter paddle to transmit themselves to Waxworld, why doesn't it take them 200,000 years to get there?
