Serenity: The Big Damn Movie - If you haven't seen the show, please do. It's nice. But this recap doesn't assume that you have -- and in that, we're being a touch nicer than the movie. And meaner, considering the best characters get routinely shit...

Gunfight At The Ho K Corral

Heart Of Gold - Mutant Enemy filled an episode with hookers, sex, and gunplay, and yet the show still got cancelled by FOX. They just couldn't win, could they?

With friends like these...

Even Nathan's naked ass couldn't save them.

Trash - Saffron's back, and she brought crime-related hijinks for everyone! Simon has a long talk with Jayne about the status of their relationship. No, it's not like that. Dammit. Oh, and the show's still cancelled.

Ending where it all began

Serenity - Firefly comes to an end with the airing of the previously unseen pilot episode. We get to see some background and history for all the characters, even though they already took all this background and history and fit it into all the other episodes they've already aired. So it's kind of like ending with a clip show. Except without any clips.

This week's episode simulcast on KRZY

Objects In Space - River temporarily checks her madness at the door when the ship is confronted with a bounty hunter even crazier and more annoying than she is. Simon takes off his shirt and gets wounded so that he can catch up with all the other boys before the show gets cancelled.

Girl-on-girl action! Woooo!

War Stories - Firefly finally capitulates to FOX's key demographic by having an utterly pointless subplot about Inara getting it on with another woman. In less pandering storylines, Niska returns for another helping of scenery, Zoe kicks ass all over the place, Book shows more hidden skills, River gives Buffy a run for her money, and Jayne makes the process of eating an apple seem dirty and erotic, God bless 'im.

Twenty Questions -- if you round up

The Jose Molina Interview - Jose Molina answers some of Shack's stupid questions. Or, alternatively, gives smart-ass responses as he sees fit. It's all good.

The gloves come off

Ariel - But only in a metaphorical sense. Simon pushes the crew to help him finally find out what happened to River. Jayne finally stops whining about having fugitives on board and does something about it. Something bad. The men with the blue gloves finally start doing evil, with the help of a little device that softens brains while they do dishes.

A River Runs From It

Safe - Simon and River's attempt to flee from the clutches of the Academy is briefly interrupted by their attempt to flee from the clutches of some overly Puritan backwoods hicks. And there's more to Book than meets the eye. Especially in the area of pectoral muscles. You don't have to look if you don't want to.

The anvil is mightier than the sword

Shindig - No Chris Sarandon wannabe is going to keep Mal away from his Inara. Not that he wants her or anything. He's just protecting her honor. That's all. It's not love! Shut up! It's not!

Jaynestown - Jayne's the one / who likes all the pretty songs. / And he likes to sing along, / and he likes to shoot his gun. / But he don't know what it means, / he don't know what it means, / 'cuz he's a goon.

The old maul-and-chain

Our Mrs. Reynolds - Mal's new wife cooks, cleans, seduces, poisons, punches, kicks, and hijacks. Inara doesn't poison, punch, kick, or hijack, but on the other hand, is actually in love with Mal. Zoe doesn't cook or clean, but Wash still loves her because she can totally punch and kick his ass. River doesn't cook, clean, seduce, poison, punch, kick, hijack, or even talk this episode, thank God.

Leave It To Reavers

Bushwhacked - The emptiness of space turns some people into murderous psychopaths. The emptiness of the script turns the episode into a ponderous bloodbath.

Confederacy Of Dunces

The Train Job - A ragtag band of space outlaws rebels against an oppressive galactic government -- with its silly uniforms and human experiments -- by stealing stuff. Except, when it turns out that people really need the stuff, they give it back. Isn't the point of stealing to take things that people need? Oh, that's right; they're a good ragtag band of space outlaws. Well, mostly good. Occasionally. Anyway, that one guy totally deserved to be pushed into a turbine.
