Trivia:
It is strange that Harken was not given information on the Tams. In the other episodes information on the Tams is posted on the Cortex; made available to bounty hunters, Federal agents, Federal marshals; and shown to others by the Hands of Blue.See more »

The Reavers' Effect, 17 October 2016
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Serenity hits a wrecked transport vessel that was transporting settler's families and Mal decides to check whether there are survivors or goods. He goes on board with Zoe and they find a survivor completely mad and bring him to the Serenity. They also find some valuable goods and the fate of the crew that was attacked by the Reavers. When they are ready to go, they are intercepted by an Alliance's spacecraft and their Commander Harken brings them on board for investigation. Soon Mal realizes that they are in danger and tries to convince Harken to check the survivor.

"Bushwhacked" is an entertaining episode of Firefly showing the Reavers' effect in a man forced to see their torture. But the question is: Are the Reavers cannibals or sadistic? If they are cannibals, why they left the tortured bodies behind? My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): Not Available
