Series IV Smeg Ups

Red DwarfSpecials

A compilation of outtakes and fluffs

Interestingness abounds. The BBFC, in its infinite wisdom, decided that if you show an actor mouthing the word ‘fuck’ to a twelve-year-old, the sheer rudeness will make his or her head explode. Therefore, whenever one of the cast does a naughty, their mouth is pixellated, as well as the audio being obscured by a beep. Strangely enough, in there “shit’s not in the script” out-take from Rimmer’s trial in Justice, Chris’s mouth is obscured for the first utterance of the offending word, but not the second. Therefore, our children are not safe. And, rather amusingly, Danny’s elongated “fu-u-uck!” from White Hole has been beeped out, after slipping through unnoticed on the Smeg Outs tape. All the cock-ups here are from the two videos, naturally, and all are from the right series.
