Though it's almost become a cliche to say, it's the truth... Joss Whedon's "Firefly" is by and large one of the best television series to emerge over the past twenty years, and the fact it was cancelled after only one season is a genuine tragedy. The series' blend of science fiction and western sensibilities is refreshing and unique, making each one of its fourteen episodes a complete blast from start to finish. Add to that one of the best ensemble casts ever put to screen, and witty writing that expertly combines both humor and drama, and you have a recipe for success that unfortunately just never got the chance to flourish. If you haven't seen the show and are worried the hype may have ruined it for you, do yourself a favor and give a chance. It doesn't just meet expectations... it shatters them. "Firefly" easily earns a perfect 5 out of 5.

Out of Gas - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: In the flashback where Mal and Zoë meet Jayne for the first time, every close-up of Mal and the one close-up of Zoë shows their hair blowing in the wind. But in the shots of them together, their hair is completely still.

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.

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).
