Trivia

Jayne's favorite gun, Vera, is actually a highly modified Saiga-12 shotgun. The prop gun was custom built by gunsmiths Larry Zanoff and Jim Boland for the film Showtime (2002) before being used on Firefly (2002). Jayne also carries Vera in Firefly: War Stories (2002), but notably does not fire it on camera. See more »

An unforgettable guest appearance by Christina Hendricks
25 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It is hard to pick a favourite episode from a series as consistently good as "Firefly" but this must be a contender; I don't think I can find fault with a single scene from the opening where Mal confronts a group of bandits while wearing a dress and a pretty floral bonnet to when he finds a beautiful stowaway aboard Serenity who claims to be his wife to the conclusion where the ship is in danger of being caught in a net which would kill the crew. As well as having a great story this episode has some of the best dialogue in the series; I'm sure if I hear references to "a special hell" or "I call it Vera" years from now I'm sure I'll know the scene it came from.

The regular cast is joined by the beautiful Christina Hendricks who does a great job as Mal's new bride Saffron, I'm sure most male viewers will think that they'd have succumbed to her charms long before the captain did. Writer/creator Joss Whedon did a fantastic job coming up with such a good story which includes excitement, humour, sexiness and even a surreal anecdote about the juggling of geese.
