Ariel - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: Look at the pilot in the cockpit of the fake ambulance (that the crew made to infiltrate St. Mary's hospital) as it lands at the main entrance. It looks nothing like Wash, not even lifelike.

Ariel - S1-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When the fake ambulance that the crew made to infiltrate St. Mary's hospital lands at the main entrance, it lands on flat foot pads. But in the following shots the casters that were used to move the prop around the set are visible beneath the landing feet.

Show generally

Question: I've never seen the show myself, but I was wondering what kind of a name "Inara Serra" is. I'm assuming Inara is of Portuguese origin, but mostly because the actress was born in Brazil. Can someone please help me with this?

Answer: Inara is actually Arabic in origin; it means "ray of light" or alternatively "heaven sent". Serra, on the other hand, is Portuguese and means "mountain range" - derived from the same word in Latin, where it means 'saw' (as in the cutting implement, which a mountain range might resemble, rather than the act of seeing).
