Goofs

The first shot we see of Nandi waking up shows her hair loose on the pillow, and her hand curled up on the sheet beside her; in the next shot, a close-up, her hair is mostly tucked behind her ear and her hand is closer to her face than previously. See more »

Lever Action Style
1 January 2007 | by (Albuquerque New Mexico USA) – See all my reviews

Classic wild west shoot out. Maginificent 7 or 9 style episode of the future. Clichés of the ole west but who doesn't like that. Traditional trademark of the show. Humor, fun, and action climax. Our Big Damn Heroes looking for work fined a job through Inara. An old friend needs help. Inara knows just the man her man to get it done. Nandi an owner of brothel on an arid world out in the border has local trouble. She is in need of some gunslingers. Mal and crew is their answer. A rancher who favored one of the girls feels the baby she is carrying is his. He and his wife childless want to steal it from her. The girls are kin to Nandi. Hiring the crew will save the day. Double cross by a harlot the crew's job has turned into gunfight at the OK Corral. A good plot with humor that turns into action firefight. American western episode in the classic sense. The ending does work out with a twist. Not to mention it has an effect on Inara and Mal's relationship. Just another day in the life of our BDHs.
