Trivia

Anybody working with cows will find the shot of the empty cargo bay, with neat little piles of cow manure despite a herd of the animals milling around in there for days, highly suspect. Also, one of the cows kicks a cow patty as they exit, showing it is a solid form and not at all mushy as a real one would be. See more »

The Doctor and the Witch

"Safe" is another entertaining episode of "Firefly". It is good to see the concern of Mal with his crew. One funny moment is when Jayne puts Simon's belongs back in his cabin. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Safe"
