Quarantine - S5-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Lister wipes down the biohazard cabinet, a boom mic can be seen in the top right of the screen. Also, just before the camera moves past the pillar, the entire microphone and arm can be glimpsed. (00:05:00)


D.N.A. - S4-E2

Visible crew/equipment: In the sleeping quarters just before the Cat sneezes onto the microscope, a boom mic shadow can be seen on the table in front of him. Also, just before as Lister walks behind Rimmer the shadow is visible moving past on Rimmer's hair. (00:18:30)


Pete (1) - S8-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When Lister sprays Bob with WD40, The thumb of the person operating Bob's head is seen for a brief second in the top right hand side of the screen. This is visible if you watch the DVD on your PC as this will not be visible on some TVs. (00:12:15)

Justice - S4-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When the crew are standing before the Judgement computer (when Lister is worrying that he will be sent to prison) if you look above Lister's head you can see a microphone bob up and down into shot. (00:11:10)

M-Corp - S12-E5

Other mistake: When Cat picks up the can of Leopard lager which is invisible to Lister, he shakes it, pops the cap and sprays Lister with foam. The foam is visible but the can remains invisible, and that makes no sense. If we are seeing the scene from Cat's point of view the can and foam should both be visible, and if it is from Lister's then neither should be.
