    Why does Kryten first appear in episode 1 of season 2 then returns in the first episode of season 3? where did he go for the rest of season 2?

    He crashed Lister's spacebike into an asteroid and they found him, picked him up and rebuilt him. It's all explained in the rolling intro to series 3 at the beginning of Backwards. Didn't you catch it? No? Oh, there it goes again! Catch it this time? You're not likely to, either, cuz it goes too blinking fast. But it's worth freeze-framing. I was in fits when it first aired and got faster and faster until there was no way to catch even a word.

    He left at the end of the Kryten episode, start of series two. If you watch it, it's clear that he leaves. He was a one-off guest character.

    And yeah, his return in the show is explained by the roller at the start of series three. Which you can find in the Behind the Scenes section on reddwarf.co.uk.
