Revealing mistakesEdit

  1. When Lister visits Arnold and Arnold in Rimmer's new room, there is one frame of video where the Rimmer on the right was not composited in the picture. This is right after Lister comments about the "Rimmer headlines" on the door, when they switch camera angles from Lister at the door to showing the entire room, the first frame only has Lister and Rimmer along with the two scutters. The second frame shows the additional Rimmer on the right side of the room and one scutter has moved. Absences of the second Rimmer could be due to a glitch in the holo simulation system, while the second scutter could have moved.
