Backwards - S3-E1

Trivia: In the episode 'Backwards', Kryten and Rimmer are fired by the nightclub owner for the fight. However, the man is not really saying anything about a fight. The reversed translation is actually like this: "You are a stupid square headed bald git aren't you. I'm pointing at you, but I'm not actually addressing you. I'm addressing the one prat in the entire country who's bothered to get hold of this recording, turn it round and actually work out the rubbish that I'm saying. What a poor sad life he's got. Your act's crap, anyway I hate the lot of you."

Backwards - S3-E1

Trivia: On the DVD, you can watch this episode backwards. This way, not only can you find out roughly how they made this episode and find out what 'reversed' people are saying, you can hear someone shout 'ACTION' right before the brawl scene.

Backwards - S3-E1

Trivia: The Star Wars-style (if you can slow it down) scrolly mentions what happened in between series 2 and 3. In short, it mentions what happened to Kryten (he crashed Lister's space bike on a planet and the crew managed to rescue him again), and the twins (Jim and Bexley - they were sent to the parallel universe as they were growing far too quickly).

Timeslides - S3-E5

Trivia: In Timeslides (Series 3), after the crew finds out they have a limited time machine Kryten says "Just think, we could go to Dallas 1963, stand on the Grassy Knoll and shout duck," an unintentional reference to Tikka To Ride (Series 7) where we find out that they were the men on the Grassy Knoll in Dallas 1963.
