Did You Know?


The supposedly biblical quote Saffron uses in her seduction of Mal does not appear in the Bible. She may have fabricated it assuming Mal would not know the difference. See more »


An exterior effects shot of Serenity, as it heads toward the net, shows the port-side shuttle still in place despite the fact that Saffron has already departed and stolen the shuttle. See more »


Saffron: [Saffron is sitting on Mal's bed naked, covered by a blanket] I've made myself ready for you.

An hour of perfect television
17 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

I know it may sound like hyperbole, but no matter how I look at it, I reach the same conclusion: This episode of Firefly is one of the most perfectly constructed pieces of entertainment I have ever seen. It has absolutely everything you could possibly wish for: humour, intrigue, sex, romance, moral dilemmas, action, a neat twist... Moreover, it is a self-contained enough story and so engrossing in itself that even someone watching who is new to the show can still be thoroughly entertained, yet for those who already know the characters, it develops and advances them in subtle but crucial ways. You just couldn't ask for anything more. This should be a blueprint for what every episode in every TV show should strive to be. Firefly was a good show overall, certainly, but this episode alone would more than justify its existence.
