Don't get me wrong Out of Gas is one of my favorite episodes. However, when Mal grabs a pistol and somehow convinces a whole other crew that they can't take him, that doesn't sit well with me. Especially since there was one guy holding his semi-automatic weapon very nearly pointing at Mal anyway. One twitch and he could have taken Mal out.

that is what the commentary person had to say. he said his biggest regret about the episode was not giving mal a huge gun because, he said, it was hard to believe that "these heavily armed people don't just gun him right down" which makes sense. if mal had a double barrel shotgun or something like that, then maybe the other crew would have thought twice.

i originally thought this too, but the best explanation that i can come up with is that mal REALLY does not want to get CAUGHT with those foodstuffs. of course, they could grind them up to remove the alliance imprint or something like that, but overall, i think he just wanted to avoid having to explain to anyone where they came from. if the food was not imprinted, then i completely agree. might as well keep it.

Alot of good points. The two things that twanged me were River (yes, gasp, blasphemy), who just struck me like nails on a blackboard almost everytime she came on scene. I admit that it's my own personal bias, for several reasons.

And the other, well -- for a show that plays up the Mandarin so much: where are all the Asians? No, really!?

My husband didn't like the western theme so much, but I found the combination of westerns, space/sci-fi, and Chinese culture really refreshing and fascinating -- probably because I am a big fan of cyber-punk, Blade Runner, and am a sci-fi geek from an Asian influenced part of the "old west".

Lol its just funny that Book, a Shepherd, would not understand such a fundamental part of the Christian faith and Inara would. That's pretty much the one line in firefly that annoys me

and, posted by maugwai:

But every Christian has a deifferent interpretation of the religion. For one thing, forced conversion is immoral in the Christian faith (not that many haven't done that). Book has respect for Mal's wishes, and Mal does not wish to have a relationship with God. Book does not want to violate that because of his own beliefs. I think that's a very Christian response, as is Inara's.



As an aside, I can't speak with any authority on Christian theology (and this isn't the proper venue for such a discussion in any length); but I have to side with Book. I think that he had a respectful response -- he understood that good wishes aside, Mal had the free will to decide whether or not to participate in the world of Book's god; and to ride over that may be in some interpretations his "Christian duty", but could ultimately be unwanted by Mal. I think that Book has the wisedom that as a spiritual person he may not impose upon another's will if that's what they do not wish or need.

I guess I just never notice when an effect is CGI, but once I listened to the DVD commentary for "Shindig," the back of Inara's dress bothered me ever after. Then it LOOKED unzipped.

Much more annoying to me was Atherton's sudden turnabout in character. At the beginning of the episode, he seems sincere, courtly, and totally respectful and deferential to Inara. He knew how to conduct himself with a woman who is supposed to be worthy of respect.

The "No matter how you dress her up..." line (which was presumably to end "...she's still a whore") seemed jarring. Even a boorish fool would know better than to say that in front of her. I'd have found it more believable if she'd overheard him saying it to friends over poker.

BTW, in "Jaynestown," how did Stitch lose his eye?

I think that cattle for beef and or raising would be worth a good bit in the Firefly 'verse.

We have all heard how the diet of the people on the Rim consists mainly of proteins in "all the colors of the rainbow" and how much of a luxury it was for the crew in "Serenity" to get fresh fruits and vegetables for supper. I am sure that theirs is not an uncommon plight.

I imagine that border planets would pay a handsome fee for cattle to be transported for raising so they have their own supply of beef to supplement their diet.

actually, this makes sense. you would only need to buy the cattle once. after that, you can always have it since they will keep breeding.

I do know the line, but I don't get how falling from a plane causes you to lose an eye. I wondered if the Magistrate removed it as punishment (because he cut off someone else's hands and feet), but I don't know if there's anything to support that.

If I remember the comversation correctly, Book was complaining about not being useful - to the Captain. It's not that Book doesn't pray for Mal & the others or that Book considers it useless, it's that he wants Mal to feel he has contributed.
And that doing something that Mal wouldn't want him to do won't relieve him of freeloader status - in the Captain's eyes. I'm sure his transportation fee to Boros has long since run out and he wants to provide some service to the function of the ship that it's Captain will appreciate so that he doesn't feel guilty about freeloading.


Besides it sets up the great lines that follow it showing that Inara has at least some Faith, and cares enough about Mal to pray behind his back.

Actually, this is pretty easy to understand from the other captain's point of view. Possibly they could have taken him out with a twitch, but that also means he's got a chance at a twitch or two even if mortally wounded. If they can take the ship with little effort and no loss, it's a win/win... if suddenly there's a chance of losing one or more crewmen and/or the captain himself, suddenly the stakes are much higher. Okay, we tried, we got busted, let's just back the hell out and go our merry way before this crazy gut-shot bastard starts throwin' slugs around.

'Course, that's just my $.02.

I started a thread like this on the Serenity movie site before I found this one.

My least favorite line is in The Train Job:

Book,"That young man is very brave"
Mal,"yeah, he's my heero"

To me, a cheesy effort to make Mal funny.

And, I agree with Indigo, where are all the orientals? There are a lot of oriental themes and a few people in the background but no one in the foreground that I noticed.

Has the human race blended so much in 500 years? Personally I think that would be a good thing but I can't see it happening in that short a period.

At the risk of being dragged off to a gulag, I'll admit that I still have a keycard I received 4 years ago (May 2000, says so right on it, so almost 5) when working at a very large and well known computer company in my area. I still have friends there and when I go to see them for lunch, guess what? Yup, my card still works. The door goes *BEEP* real nice, I hear the bolt release with a clunk, and I walk right in.

I totally disagree I don't think that's the case, otherwise Book's line would have been phrased differently. He could have said

"I don't think the Captain would much like me JUST praying for him..."

The fact is the Captain wouldn't like it at ALL even if Book WERE doing other tasks.

And besides even if it WERE so it really makes Inara's next line make no sense. She'd be suggesting other tasks he could do rather than saying not to tell Mal that he prays for him. If Book had no problem with praying for Mal he wouldn't have said his line and Inara wouldn't have had to tell him hers.

I understand what you're saying but it doesn't fit in to me.

Which is why adding a "just" to the line makes no sense no matter what Book meant. He's saying the only way that he can think of to help out wouldn't be appreciated by the Captain.

...and Inara's line means, that just because Mal doesn't believe in it, doesn't mean that it's not being helpful. (and sets up her next line)

Besides Joss seems to like having the Whore be the Shepherd's Shepherd.

I had more of a problem with Joss doing that role reversal in Serenity where Book comes to Inara seeking absolution and questioning why he is here. It just doesn't fit his character of well-grounded, world-wise vetran.

Bushwhacked always bugged me too. The way Mal just predicts exactly what is going to happen to the derilect. How the heck would Mal know? How does he know so well how reavers would act? Going to familiar ground and stuff. Which also made no sense since Serenity wasn't familiar ground. The guy had only seen the infirmary. The alliance trusting him to help them doesn't even seem remotely right for the alliance. Then Mal having to save the captain when there were a bunch of armed alliance men around? Just bad bad bad.

I think I had to drag that out of repressed memories it took me so long to remember. I don't watch that episode much.

I always thought that this,and other things, were strong hints that Mal had some kind previous encounter/dealings with Reavers. Maybe they knocked on his door early one Sunday morning in Shadow and tried to bring him the gospel of cannibalisim

My most annoying episode was Heart of Gold. The entire script for it was nothing but 1 line jokes.

oh oh also how about in Serenity when Inara is talking to her first client that we see. The editing is really weird. At one point she's talking but her lips aren't moving. The scene where she's bathing has some of this too. I don't know if it's supposed to be artistic or not but it's no where else in the series so I have to chalk it up to bad editing.

I don't think that's bad editing. Just intended as a mode to see the 'real' Inara as it were.

In Out Of Gas this non-linear editing is used again, to further the narrative. Personally I really liked that way of presenting a characters real thoughts.... But I have to admit when I was watching this one with my folks (who love Firefly by the way) this non-linear editing was something that really confussed my Dad, and I spent most of the episode explaining the intent behind it.

David Solomon (Director of Out of Gas) has really gone up in my estimation. I've since rewatched old Buffy which he directed and his tricks are very clever and understated, not so in your face..... I hope he goes on to do more.

I would blame Fox for wanting a greater action element in a show that had been cast for actors who could create the personality of their characters. For me, Gina Torres is wonderful as Zoe but doesn't appear to be a natural athlete.


Amen to that. Olympic relay somersaulter or not, she IS the character to me. So much so that when I happened to catch a moment of her on "24," wherein she was crying and whimpering like a helpless little girl, the words "degrading" and "blasphemy" came to mind.

Probably did it throughout his childhood, as is not uncommon in societies descended from European cultural heritage. I don't know much about other religions, but ritual cannibalism is part of joining many different sects of Christian church.

I just watched OIS and noticed--again--the part when Early says to Simon that doctors should have to be shot or stabbed so they can feel what it is like. Early says that psychiatrists have to get psychoanalyzed but he actually says "cycle-analyzed." I don't even pay attention to whatever he says next because I'm always thinking, "He just said 'cycle-analyzed' instead of 'psychoanalyzed!'"

Channain mentioned it (and I hate to agree with a Viking fan), but the horsemanship in both "Serenity" and "Heart of Gold" is terrible, especially for Mal having been raised on a ranch. I could excuse Zoe and Jayne, although it's still painful to watch. I honestly can't watch the screen when Mal is riding after Burgess in HoG because his riding is so bad.

I wrote that in another thread where this came up quite a while back, so sorry for repeating myself :)

I would explain Stitch's bodily "fitness" despite being imprisoned in the box this way:

Stitch had to do forced labour during the day to make up for the damage he did and only was locked away in the box during the night.

Since he couldn't work well and pay the damage with his work if not fed properly he even got enough food and water to survive.

Hope this makes it less annoying for you :)

In "Objects in Space," how is River able to direct her voice to certain intercoms on Serenity -- from Early's ship?

Also (and I'm sure it's been discussed on here before, but I can't seem to find it), I'm always confused by Early saying, "No, that ain't it at all" and then saying right after, "I'm a bounty hunter." Huh?

of course, maybe a thread where people have to post only the thing they like the MOST about firefly. no lists, no top tens, no "i like these things..." pin it down to one, specific thing. that would get some brain matter moving.

Bushwhacked always bugged me too. The way Mal just predicts exactly what is going to happen to the derilect. How the heck would Mal know? How does he know so well how reavers would act? Going to familiar ground and stuff. Which also made no sense since Serenity wasn't familiar ground. The guy had only seen the infirmary. The alliance trusting him to help them doesn't even seem remotely right for the alliance. Then Mal having to save the captain when there were a bunch of armed alliance men around? Just bad bad bad.

I think I had to drag that out of repressed memories it took me so long to remember. I don't watch that episode much.




And .... If Simon, Book and Jayne are wearing masks when they cut down the bodies, why, oh why, didn't Zoe and Mal smell anything when they unlocked the door?

Also, the timing is off. It takes as long to cut down all those bodies as it does for Kaylee to cut through the Reavers' trap? And Jayne comes in with the crates just as Kaylee finishes?

This one isn't one of my favorites either, although I think it's growing on me. Particularly the interrogation scene(s) with Harken and the crew. Some of that is smile time.

OK so here's another that I just remembered as I watched the episode last night. In Our Mrs. Reynolds the guys working the net talk about whether Serenity is worth taking. When they're talking about it just being parts the guy says, "Thing will run forever, they got a mechanic even...".

Now I've always thought he said "half her weight" or "worth half her weight". Which annoyed me because, how would he know the mechanic was female. Though I just looked up the shooting script and it says "half awake". So maybe I've just be hearing him wrong all this time. Which is even more annoying. Now I'm going to have to go turn on the captions to see what it says he's saying.

i do enjoy those interrogation scenes. wash is pretty funny and of course, jayne's response is quite appropriate. i always enjoyed zoe's responses.

fought with him during the war?
fought with a lot of people during the war.
and your husband?
fight with him sometimes too.

and of course, i love her line to end the conversation.

just don't see how it's any of your business.

curt, to the point and perfectly in line with her very business-like character.

Important people don't do field work.


Oh my goodness, yes. Wash, trying to be a hardass in War Stories. I fast forward past it every time, because his lines seem so hokey coming out of him. That's terrible, isn't it. I'VE BETRAYED A TV SHOW!!! NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

All apologies to Mr. Tudyk and all the browncoats. I hate myself now.

Kaylee: "What's so damn important about being proper? It don't mean nothing out here in the black."
Simon: "It means more out here. It's all I have..."

What priest in their right mind would care if someone wouldn't like them praying for them? As a faithful person, just because someone doesn't believe in God or has some problem with God in general, doesn't stop me praying for their safety or happiness or whatever.

Lol its just funny that Book, a Shepherd, would not understand such a fundamental part of the Christian faith and Inara would. That's pretty much the one line in firefly that annoys me




"That's not a Shepherd."
