Storyline

In the first half of the original pilot episode, the crew of Serenity takes on several passengers and make their way to another planet to try and sell goods they salvaged from a wrecked ship. Their efforts are impeded, though, when Wash and Mal realize that there is an undercover alliance fed on board. In the second half of the original pilot, Simon struggles to save Kaylee, and in turn River and himself while Mal, Zoe, and Jayne attempt to unload the cargo from the salvage to a trigger-happy mayor of a border moon.

Goofs

Shortly after Serenity arrives at the Eavesdown Docks, Wash drives the mule down the ramp, stops at the bottom and has a few words with Zoe. Just as the mule initially moves, a crew member is visible behind the mule running to screen right after pushing the mule. When Wash drives off, a crew member's hand is again visible grabbing onto the front bumper of the mule to pull it out of the shot. See more »

Quotes

Mal: Can't get paid if you're dead.
Jayne: Can't get paid if you crawl away like a bitty little bug neither. I got a share of this job. Ten percent of nothin' is, let me do the math here... nothin' and a nothin', carry the nothin'...

I'm with rhoberta, this show rocks!!!
29 June 2008 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I, like about 99.9% of everyone else who's a fan of this series, didn't get to see the episodes when they were original aired. Which in my opinion was a good thing cause when I learned the original order each one was aired in, I thought "No wonder this show didn't do well on TV! The time-line's so outta wack it's a wonder you can even follow it." Maybe the guys at Fox who decided on that order had the same mentality as theluckdog; & couldn't appreciate this series for what it really was. Firefly is a breakthrough in entertainment, refreshingly different, downright hilarious, & still has a storyline you can get hooked on! Joss Whedon combined the Old American West, Chinese language/culture, and a futuristic setting in a way that you can totally believe is not only realistic, but entirely possible. I love all the characters, & I especially like that none of them take center stage anymore than the others do. I'm not gonna get into details about this particular episode, cause I believe it's already been pretty well covered. But I will say that it was worth 80 minutes of your time. Of course, you shouldn't just take my word for it. Go & see it for yourself. Then you'll find out what everyone's been raving about :).
