Did You Know?


When XO Mike Slattery (Adam Baldwin) is in the security room, while looking for what his people are up to, you can see a skull with a yellow/orangeish knitted hat. Jayne Cobb, Adam's character from Firefly (2002) was given a knitted hat with similar colours by his mom near the end of the series, with the knitted hat becoming an icon for the series. See more »

What if I told you that bullets...
16 December 2016 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

...can distract the viewer from plot and character development, production, story, acting, dialogue... all? "Fight the Ship" takes one for the team and decides to offer just forty minutes of mindless action that takes the story practically nowhere, but makes for a very entertaining episode.

It is basically as follows: there is a fight for the ship (the title I think says it all?) at the same that there is a fight on the streets of Baltimore. Cue... shoots, people dying, more shoots, cheesy dialogue, more shoots, blood... Did I say shoots?

If the 'enemy' was a better shooter, the episode would have lasted like 5 seconds, but the 'other' lacks the accuracy our heroes have, so we get lots of bodies that are just there to fall on the floor and die, while our heroes fight for their life, the ship, and overthrowing Granderson.

But frantic pace, and good acting (yes, action scenes also need good acting) help in making the "Fight the Ship" an episode that grabs the viewer attention and holds it with non-stop action.
