if Joss Whedon ever does another series, he doesn't have the characters curse in Chinese again. First of all the actors don't even try to get hit tones when speaking Chinese, so if you're a chinese person watching the show it literally sounds retarded.

I just don't think it sounds very menacing to curse in Chinese ... not that I know how. Now cursing in Japanese sounds mean ... Cursing in German or Afrikaans sounds pretty fierce too.
While the Anglo-Sino plot is interesting, it does make it tough for the use of Chinese characters. I would have preferred an Anglo-Russo or even an Anglo-Nippon background ... but it is what it is.

I I mean, in English, if we called someone a "turtle," they'd just stare and be very bewildered. In Chinese, that's equivalent to "bastard." Just doesn't sound the same, does it?
Not only that, but the characters used for a lot of the writing was actually Japanese. I'm just lucky the character meanings carry over. I can read Chinese, but I'd need to install a new tongue to be able to speak it. Ha ha... complex.

That's what Joss was doing... not trying to say Commie China is 'cool'. Perhaps that's why none were in the show? Maybe that's why the Chinese owner of Fox, Deng Wen Di Murdoch, banned FF before it's first epp?
In fact, Commie China has a recent history of cannibalism, during it's "Cultural Revolution". School teachers were considered especially tasty. Reavers were made by the jew banks in NY and UK who founded Communism with the British Fabian Socialists. Now the Chinese just eat babies, thanks to mandatory abortion ordered by sodomite jew Heinz "Henry" Kissenger Knight of the British Empire.
