Corrected entry: When discussing the Reavers, Shepherd Book has a cord sticking out between the back of his shirt and the back of his neck. It seems to be an audio cord but could be a part of his pony tail as well. Whatever it is, it's definitely out of place during the shot. (00:22:00)
Corrected entry: Near the end when Mal and Zoe show up to save Simon and River, who are about to be burned at the stake, Mal says "Gotta say Doctor, your talent for alienating folks, it's near miraculous". The subtitles say "Gotta say Doctor, [inaudible], it's near miraculous."
Corrected entry: When the Feds are searching Serenity for River and Simon (who are in spacesuits on the outside of the ship) one soldier picks up and flips over the placemats on the table. This is pointless because, obviously, there's nothing that could have been hiding under them.
Corrected entry: When Simon enters the derelict ship wearing a space suit and sees everyone else without suits, he puts his flashlight down and starts struggling with his helmet. The viewpoint changes to show Kaylee moving toward him - with his flashlight beam waving over her face and body. Then we cut back to Simon, who is still struggling with the helmet with both hands - he's not holding the flashlight at all.
Corrected entry: When leaving the hospital on Ariel, Jayne is arrested along with Simon and River. His hands are cuffed behind his back. However, when he is stunned by the police officer a moment later and falls to the ground, his hands are in front of him and there is no sign of the cuffs. (00:25:30)
Corrected entry: Although the premise of the episode is the complete failure of Serenity's major systems (life support, navigation, etc.), the gravity stays on throughout the episode. "Stays on," because a ship would require a major, operational electromagnetic system to mimic gravity - or it would need to be in a controlled spin - either of which option would fail as the rest of the ship did. As well as freezing and asphyxiating, by the rules of the episode, Mal and the others should be floating throughout.
Corrected entry: Kaylee gets shot in the stomach and rushed to the infirmary, where Simon works on her for some hours. Then, once she's stabilized, Mal goes and opens Simon's shipping container, in which his sister is stashed. Several scenes later, Kaylee finally wakes up from her anesthesia while Mal is with her, and makes some comment about how pretty River is lying there, even though she (Kaylee) has been unconscious the entire time River's been out of the crate. She should be asking who this stranger is.
Corrected entry: During the commentary for Shindig, one of the costume designers comments on the leather bands Zoe wears around her neck, saying that they are a symbol of her marriage to Wash, which is why she 'never takes them off'. However, in the flashback scene showing the first meeting between Zoe and Wash, she is wearing the bands. (00:11:00)
Corrected entry: When Simon is using the defibrillator paddles on the post-operative patient in the hospital on Ariel, he is not holding onto the rubber handles of the paddles when he says "Clear." to have the nurse administer the first shock. Rather, he is holding onto the metal ends of the paddles right next to the shock pads. This means that he would have shocked himself as well as the patient. (00:19:35)
Corrected entry: Who would have thought that Serenity could have been damaged so badly so easily? In less than 30 seconds, Saffron pulls one cluster of wires and connects two others and manages to disable the ship to the point that Wash and Kaylee need a lot of time to fix it.
