Quotes

Simon: I don't think my last act in this verse is gonna be betraying my sister.
Jubal Early: You're gonna help me. 'Cause every second you're with me is a chance to turn the tables, get the better of me. Maybe you'll find your moment. Maybe I'll slip. Or, you refuse to help me, I shoot your brain out, and I go upstairs and spend some time violating the little mechanic I got trussed up in the engine room. I take no pleasure in the thought, but she will die, weeping, if you cross me.
Simon: You're out of your mind.
Jubal Early: That's ...

On par with Out of Gas after all.
7 November 2014 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

In fact, on this rewatch, Objects in Space seemed even cooler than Out of Gas to me. I suppose my preference varies depending on the mood. Brief list of spectacularly awesome things about OIS:

+ River comes to the forefront and gives a glimpse of the depth within her character, as what previously often seemed like peculiarity, with occasional flashes of sharp intellect and insight, is now firmly established as broadly reaching genius. Her abilities are also strongly developed and demonstrated.

+ There is an uber-cool segment placing us into the mind of River, with superb, inventive audiovisual direction. Very fresh and memorable scene.

+ The antagonist Jubil Early is so organic, interesting, and badass that he completely dominates the episode. Fantastic acting from Richard Brooks. Early's dialogue, and the air of calm but slightly unhinged menace that he conveys in every scene, are brilliant.

+ All the other dialogue in the ep is top-notch, as well.

+ The bits in outer space are stupendously done.

All in all, Objects in Space is a masterpiece. 10/10.
