Trivia

When Inara tells Simon, "I don't want to die at all," she is thinking of a disease that is killing her. Morena admitted in her answer to a fan's question at a convention that if Joss Whedon had told the fan's friend that Inara is dying, then it must be true. See more »

Out of Gas
27 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am not usually a fan of flashback episodes. My initial reaction is traditionally a roll of the eyes and get out my crafts. But not this one. I say it has to do with AMAZING EDITING!!! It truly is the best flashback episode I've ever seen and is my favorite Firefly episode. After reading a previous comment, I have to say that I agree. It would have been an amazing final episode. I highly recommend that anyone who enjoys a good sci-fi show catch this one on DVD or reruns. Then watch Serenity. We've gotten several people addicted to the series after the fact and all of them are disappointed that it was canceled so early on. I keep my fingers crossed that it will come back. The chemistry of the cast from the get go is enjoyable.
