    In ‘Backwards’ the laws of that universe apply to the dwarfers immediately. Lister has the bruised ribs etc they un-eat a pie, get fired for an event that’s about to happen etc.

    I know there are loads of questions about the Backwards universe (ie they eat the pie after the fight) BUT my question is simple....

    How does Kryten eat the egg ‘forwards’ and drink the glass of water on stage? Debatable he could do that at any time but especially in the Backwards universe.

    It's the same problem with them talking forwards. Just some laws of the backwards universe applied to them. Lister and Cat could speak forwards, but they could eat and drink only backwards.

    Regurgitation is a popular stage trick for magicians now.

    OK, Kryten could switch between backwards and forwards mode. He did this to read the newspaper, so he could switch to forwards mode and eat the egg. (EGG, lol @Nikki the Great, @Cloud, @Eggman :lol:)

    I couldn't even begin to offer an explanation. Who wants a conversation about favourite crisp flavours instead?

    I'd tell you to go ask on G&T but they'll probably get bored after three responses and start making up episode titles.

    They're currently arguing whether it should be called 'special' or 'TV movie'. I won't interrrupt their usefull blessed activity.

    Salt and vinegar will always be the best flavour of crisps.

    How comes they were just lounging about on upturned crates in Starbug, watching a tiny TV at the start of Holoship?

    Red Dwarf’s got Cinemas n that.

    It's obvious isn't it? They were on their way back to the Dwarf from some scavenging trip and needed something to pass the time.
