New this month Continuity mistake: When Rimmer shows Lister the luck virus and sexual magnetism virus, there is less than half of the liquid shown in the test tube for the sexual magnetism, but when Rimmer is about to go to Hollister's dinner later on, there is more liquid in the test tube. There was also only one test tube of sexual magnetism for Rimmer to use.

New this month Continuity mistake: When Lister tells Cassandra he is not going to kill her, he sticks his chewing gum on the wall and begins walking out. Seconds later, when the fan causes the gum to fly across the room, Lister is now standing inside the room.
New this month Continuity mistake: After the Cat has performed his dance routine, he begins to smoke a cigar and puts it down. The shot cuts to the ground controller, but when the shot cuts back to the Cat, the cigar is back in his mouth and has already been smoked.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Kill Crazy and Baxter are about to beat up Rimmer and Lister, as Baxter says "Say goodbye to your teeth", Kill Crazy has his hand pressed against Rimmer's jaw, advancing his face towards Rimmer's, but when Baxter goes to punch Lister, Kill Crazy's hand is by his side and is stood away from Rimmer.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Baxter tries to punch Lister the first time and fails, Kill Crazy is looking at Lister with his arms by his side, but in the next shot, Kill Crazy is now looking at Rimmer and doing motioning actions with his arms and face.
Continuity mistake: When Lister is lying on the top bunk talking to Rimmer about the 83 year old dad, he says "he'd probably pretend to be dead" as he puts is left hand on the side of his face. The camera cuts to Rimmer then back to Lister again, as he puts his left hand on the side of his face again.
Revealing mistake: After the Cat's dance, Lister says 'we are outta here' and pulls the level, at which point the crew all fall back as if Blue Midget had rushed forwards. However, in the model shot of the ship it shows it scraping its foot on the floor before it runs forwards, meaning the crew should not have fallen back in their seats.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode when Lister, Kryten, the Cat and Kochanski are dressed as the Dibleys, they walk into the corridor in a line and Kochanski stops when she bumps into the Cat. In the next shot there is a suddenly a space between them.
Continuity mistake: During the Cat's dance scene with Blue Midget, we see one shot of Blue Midget doing the air guitar move, but in the next shot, his arms are not visible at all. It changes between these two differing shots throughout the closing end of the dance routine.
Continuity mistake: When the virus starts to eat the potatoes, Rimmer picks them up from the pile just below eye level. In the wide shot it shows the potatoes are just below waist level and Rimmer would have had to lean much further away from where he was standing to get the potatoes from that height.
Plot hole: Lister is not allowed any dangerous objects that he might try to commit suicide with, yet when he is with the canaries on their missions, he carries an assault rifle. The canaries aren't always supervised and it would be impossible for a guard to stop any of them putting a gun to their head and pulling the trigger.
Visible crew/equipment: When the Cat says "You mean to help you get out if the program freezes" on Blue Midget, a soundman can be seen crouching behind the control panel. The top of his head is visible in the top right of the screen.
Revealing mistake: In the scene where Kochanski, the Cat, and Kryten first discover the time wand, there are a group of Canaries who are frozen in time from its effects. In the first shot of these people, the woman on the far right of the screen blinks her eyes. (Confirmed on DVD commentary).
Continuity mistake: In the scene on the Canaries' transport, where they first try to convince Kryten to record the women showering, Kochanski speaks the first line in the scene, but when the shot changes to the wide shot, she isn't there anymore. (Confirmed on the DVD commentary).
00:05:55 - 00:07:20
Revealing mistake: When Rimmer and Lister are being forced out Captain Hollister's office due to the effects of the fight catching up with them, a rattling sound can be heard off-screen, indicating the use of a hidden trolley-like device pushing them into the wall.
Other mistake: Cassandra says that all the canaries will be dead in 1 hour, with the exception of Rimmer, Kryten, Lister, Cat and Kochanski. However, Kill Crazy was still knocked out in the transport vehicle and presumably would have survived too.
