Corrected entry: In an attempt to stop Ackerman from finding Baxter's hooch when the cell is being inspected, Rimmer and Lister decide to drink the remaining bottles of hooch. Even if they thought they could drink the hooch bottles before Ackerman arrived to inspect, they still would have the empty bottles inside the cell with them, so drinking the hooch would have been completely ineffective in the long run.

Corrected entry: When Rimmer and Lister discover Kryten has planted Baxter's hooch in their cell, the only solutions that they can come up with is emptying the bottles into the sink and toilet, before deciding to drink it. In S8 E6 Pete (Part 1), it is shown that their cell had a ceiling duct used to allow Bob the Skutter to give Lister his meal. They could have easily planted the hooch in the duct, but that isn't even considered. It is unlikely they would have forgotten about the duct given the limited amount of places in the cell that they could hide it. (00:12:40)
Corrected entry: We learn in this series and at The End of series 7 that the nanobots have 'resurrected' the entire crew and red dwarf itself. If this is so where is Kristine Kochanski? The Kochanski we see is from a different dimension. So when the Starbug crashland on Red Dwarf, surely Captain Hollister who had them arrested would have been a little confused as two Kochanshkis would have been present. And as Kochanski is a Navigation Officer, surely she would have had a lot of contact with the Captain?
Corrected entry: In the episode "Pete: Part 1", when the crew play basketball (and are losing badly), they have scored three points. After half time the 'stiffining solution' allows them to make a comeback. Lister scores a basket, followed by the cat. The scoreboard then says the crew have 5 points. They should have 7 points because basketball points are in 2's and 3's.
Corrected entry: Not a mistake, just something I thought of. We see some rats in the ventilation ducts. Meaning that in 'The End' there was more than Frankenstein that was a non-human lifeform on board that Holly discovered. Therefore if Lister had not been stupid enough to take that photo of himself with the cat and have it developed in the ship's lab, the rats could have been found as the non-human lifeforms and Lister would not have ended up in Stasis.
Corrected entry: From the first moments of Red Dwarf eight, it is established that the Dwarfers are in the prison for committing a crime. If this is the case why wasn't Lister sent to prison in the very first episode for smuggling Frankenstein on board instead of being sent into stasis?
