LadyGhosts of TV Past: Firefly Episode 12, “The Message”

“What’d y’all order a dead guy for?”

“The Message” has some wonderfully fun bits in it, but overall it’s kind of forgettable to me.  We start with Kaylee and Simon in an old-fashioned carnival sideshow tent, looking at “aliens,” which are really mutated cow fetuses. Read More LadyGhosts of TV Past: Firefly Episode 12, “The Message”

LadyGhosts of TV Past: Firefly, “War Stories”

If I could, I would just post this whole episode here for you to re-watch it.  It’s just so good it hurts. Read More LadyGhosts of TV Past: Firefly, “War Stories”

LadyGhosts of TV Past: Firefly, “Ariel”

“Ariel” is one of my favorite episodes.  You get to see the flip side of the space coin.  Instead of being all western, this episode is high-tech and clean.

We start with the crew preparing to visit Ariel, one of the Alliance core planets.  Inara has to renew her Companion license.  Read More LadyGhosts of TV Past: Firefly, “Ariel”

LadyGhosts of TV Past: Firefly Episode 7, “Jaynestown”

“He robbed from the rich, and he gave to the poor.

Stood up to the man, and he gave him what for.

Our love for him now, ain’t hard to explain:

The hero of Canton, the man they call Jaaaayne.” Read More LadyGhosts of TV Past: Firefly Episode 7, “Jaynestown”

LadyGhosts of TV Past: Firefly Episode 5

Finally, an episode about River!  Up until now River has been like a weird little sprite who wanders on set every once in a while to do something strange and then wanders off again.  In “Safe” she finally gets some more screen time and even a little backstory.  I do love a good backstory.

LadyGhosts of TV Past: Firefly, Episode 3

“Bushwhacked” is my least favorite episode, with my most favorite scene, from the whole series.  We learn more about the Reavers, which is important for the development of the story line, but the whole episode is just missing that spark that the others have.
