This show is too damn good to be canceled
13 September 2010 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

This is the best episode of Firefly ever it's where us viewers get in our heads that Nyska from The Train Job is a sadist (which If you watched this you'll understand). Is anyone here a fan of Angel or Buffy as well? I'm a fan of both and Jayne reminds me of Spike with his humor.

The Basic Plot Is That Nyska Finds Wash & Mal On A Planet & Kidnapps Them & Tortures Them With Knives & A Minute Electrical Shock & A 30 Second Break & The Rest Of The Crew Have To Save Them. A Funny Joke Is When Inara Gets A Female Client & Jayne Says When She Enters & Leaves "I'll Be In My Bunk"...Knowing Jayne Thats Funny...Another Good Joke & My Favourite Part Of The Episode Is This: Hoban 'Wash' Washburne: Mmmm. Wife soup. I must have done good.

Zoë Washburne: Yes dear. You done good.

Mal: Ow.

(sighs) Mal: Did you tell her? Hoban 'Wash' Washburne: Tell her what? Mal: Your husband has demanded that we sleep together.

Zoë Washburne: Really? Hoban 'Wash' Washburne: What? Mal, come on.

Mal: He seems to think it would get all this burning sexual tension out in the open. You know, make a fair fight for your womanly affections.

Hoban 'Wash' Washburne: No. That was the torture talking. Remember the torture? Mal: I know it's a difficult mission but you and i... have to get it on.

Zoë Washburne: I understand. We have no choice. Take me, sir. Take me hard.

Jayne Cobb: Now something about that is just downright unsettling.

(Clattering) Hoban 'Wash' Washburne: We'll be in our bunk.

Jayne Cobb: Oh, hey. Free soup.
