4 mistakes in The Train Job

(4 votes)

The Train Job - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the final shot of Serenity leaving Regina near the end, the lights on the port (left) and starboard (right) sides of the ship are reversed - the port lights are green when they should be red and the starboard lights are red when they should be green.


The Train Job - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After the opening credits River wakes up from a nightmare. She knocks over a rolling tray and some objects fall off it onto the floor. The position of the tray and the objects left on it changes between shots.


The Train Job - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Mal and Zoƫ exit the train, look closely at the woman in the yellow veil to the left of the screen holding a baby - she walks into a passing vehicle knocking her baby on its head (revealing it is really a doll).


The Train Job - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Mal is fighting Crow on the ship, he falls over the containers of medical supplies, knocking some of them over. A few shots later when Jayne shoots Crow, the containers are standing upright again.


Our Mrs. Reynolds - S1-E3

Mal: Now, you can luxuriate in a nice jail cell... But if your hand touches metal, I swear by my pretty floral bonnet I will end you.

Out of Gas - S1-E5

Trivia: Wash sets up a big red button for Mal to push to call back the shuttles if help arrives. He tells him "When your miracle gets here, just hit this button". After the show got cancelled, Alan Tudyk sent the button to Joss Whedon with the same message enclosed.

Chosen answer: One of the premises of the show is that the two major Earth societies that survived, and ultimately merged, were the Chinese and Americans. As a result the common language includes much Chinese. Clothing, signage, and building designs also have a heavy Chinese influence.
