Trivia

After the Reavers are introduced, the screen goes to near black before cutting to commercials. Joss Whedon wanted to give the audience time to "breathe" before being hit with commercials, but a true black would automatically cue the ads. Instead, he went with a color that was as close to black as he could go without causing this. See more »

Goofs

Simon removes a bullet from Kaylee and drops it in a metal tray. The bullet hits the side of the tray and bounces to the bottom, yet only one metallic "clink" is heard, rather than two. See more »

Quotes

Kaylee: [sounding weak, but cheery] Oh, don't you worry none. Doc fixed me up... pretty. He's nice.
Mal: Don't go working too hard on that crush, mei-mei. Doc won't be with us for long.
Kaylee: [big smile] You're nice, too.
Mal: [smiles] No, I'm not. I'm a mean old man.
Kaylee: He wasn't gonna let me die... He was just trying to... It's nobody's fault.
[trying to pat his arm, which Mal then reaches for]
Kaylee: Okay. Just promise me you're gonna remember that.
Mal: [holding her hand with both of his] I'll keep it in mind.

I'm with rhoberta, this show rocks!!!
29 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

I, like about 99.9% of everyone else who's a fan of this series, didn't get to see the episodes when they were original aired. Which in my opinion was a good thing cause when I learned the original order each one was aired in, I thought "No wonder this show didn't do well on TV! The time-line's so outta wack it's a wonder you can even follow it." Maybe the guys at Fox who decided on that order had the same mentality as theluckdog; & couldn't appreciate this series for what it really was. Firefly is a breakthrough in entertainment, refreshingly different, downright hilarious, & still has a storyline you can get hooked on! Joss Whedon combined the Old American West, Chinese language/culture, and a futuristic setting in a way that you can totally believe is not only realistic, but entirely possible. I love all the characters, & I especially like that none of them take center stage anymore than the others do. I'm not gonna get into details about this particular episode, cause I believe it's already been pretty well covered. But I will say that it was worth 80 minutes of your time. Of course, you shouldn't just take my word for it. Go & see it for yourself. Then you'll find out what everyone's been raving about :).
