TT #17

17 May 2007

Image nicked from Everybody lies
Thirteen of my favourite episodes of Firefly, not including the pilot Serenity which introduced all the characters and the ship. The whole ‘verse.

MAL: Now you only gotta scare him.
JAYNE: Pain is scary.

  1. The Train Job – the second pilot, cause somebody didn’t think the first was all that good! Wherein we get to see a proper bar fight, a holographic type window, a drugged Jayne, a train robbery, and Mal being slightly chippier than in the first pilot.

    JAYNE: These are stone killers, little man. They ain’t cuddly like me.

  2. Bushwhacked – Reavers! Alliance!

    JAYNE: He looked bigger when I couldn’t see him.

  3. Shindig – Pretties. Smuggling and duelling. Well I do declare

    MAL: Sure, it’s humiliating. Having to lie there while the better man refuses to spill your blood. Mercy is the mark of a great man. (Stabs Atherton in the side.) Guess I’m just a good man. (Stabs him again.) Well, I’m all right.

  4. Safe – Does River weigh the same as a duck?

    RIVER: They weren’t cows inside. They were waiting to be, but they forgot. Now they see the sky and they remember what they are.
    MAL: Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me.

  5. Our Mrs Reynolds – these crazy planets and their crazy wedding ceremonies. And crazy ship-stealing women.

    WASH: Some people juggle geese!

  6. Jaynestown The hero of Canton, the man they call Jaaaaayne.


  7. Out of Gas -remember that compression coil Kaylee warned you about way back in episode 1. Yeah, it bust. Which means no life support. And flashbacks.

    JAYNE: Yeah, ‘cos sick people are hi-larious.

  8. Ariel Robbing a hospital. And scanning brains. What fun. Till Jayne decides that the money really is good enough.

    RIVER: Two by two. Hands of blue. Two by two

  9. War Stories Tiffs and torture. Lots of torture.

    JAYNE: Smellin’ a lot of “if” comin’ off this plan.

  10. Trash Mrs Reynolds makes a return. And of course the job doesn’t go smooth.

    RIVER: Also, I can kill you with my brain.

  11. The Message An old war buddy shows up. There is also snow, and a funeral. Not forgetting the alien foetus in a jar. Or calf, whatever.

    KAYLEE: Nee GAO-soo NA niou, TA yo shwong mei-moo? (“Why don’t you tell the cow about its beautiful eyes?”)

  12. Heart of Gold Whores!

    KAYLEE: Look, they got boy whores! Isn’t that thoughtful?

  13. Objects in Space A bounty hunter, who isn’t a lion. A girl who may be a ship. Space. And the spaces in space. Look it all gets a little metaphysical, existential and philosophical. Isn’t it great?

    JAYNE: She killed ’em with mathematics. What else could it have been?

    Ups… I'm completely ignorant about Firefly :blush: so no comment about that.

    Thanks for stopping by on my blog :)

    I'll take a look bookish part of your bog … Cheers!

    Ok, so this is my favorite TT-list this week! LOL

    (And my favorite banner, of course. I promise I'll make some more of the boy soon. He is just so adorable, especially in that hat.)

    It would be really hard to decide on one favorite episode of Firefly, wouldn't it? They are just all so very very beautiful.

    I especially like the fact that most of the quotes you used were Jayne's famous one-liners. :o)

  4. I came to Firefly late but really enjoyed it on DVD.

  5. Harlequin says:

    *sniff* Firefly. *sniff*

  6. Oh… Firefly… and the Man Called Jayne… though I love Kaylee too.. Look they got boy whores! … snicker

  7. Mama Duck says:

    Oh, I was so mad that they didn't even give that show a chance, I loved it! Great idea for a list ;).

    Lisa – Lil Duck Duck

  8. Joy Renee says:

    I've never seen Firefly but I'd heard so much about it that made me think I would love it, I was excited when our library acquired the first season on DVD. I was in queue for months and my turn was coming up next–the week they locked the doors. Now I'm even more bummed that I missed out 'cause now I know for sure this is exactly my kinda sci-fi story. The kind that gets metaphysical and phiosophical.

    My TT this week is a joke. my attempt to lighten my mood–or at least not spread it to the TTers–which tanked after Tuesday's election tanked the library levy.

    wanted to say thanx for visiting me over the last couple weeks while my cranky computer kept me from returning visits. All my visitors from the last three TT are at the top of my to-visit list today.

  9. SciFiChick says:

    So basically all of them, since there were only so many episodes of Firefly.. LOL

    Great show.

  10. Fence says:

    Weenie, you'll really have to take a look at some stage. Its the best.

    Don't worry Milan, we'll forgive you your lack of 'verse knowledge :)

    I can't believe I didn't think of it earlier samulli. It fits so perfectly.

    Mark I watched it first on dvd too. But didn't have the chance to see it on the telly as it never made it over here. Although scifi have started showing it recently.

    Keep flying H.

    Every good whore house needs those boy whores Miss Frou Frou, don't you think?

    Hey Mama Duck, still, at least we know there are plenty of fans still around.

    Hi Joy, that must be so disappointing.

    Exactly SciFiChick. Perfect fit dontcha think?

  11. Stephanie says:

    I got the boxed set for Mother's Day! Isn't my family thoughtful?? Why oh why was there only one season??

  12. Fence says:

    Planck, I happen to disagree with your political opinions, but far be it from me to censor you ;)

    Stephanie, that is a great gift, one I'm sure you will enjoy.

  13. bernie says:

    Fence, I appreciate that.
