What's all the "anti-love"(it's Firefly tehre's no hate) for "The Message"? I thought that was the most emotionally powerful episode of the series (well, perhaps tied with "Objects in Space").

And it's got the hat! :D

LoneStar1836
February 9th, 2007, 12:37 AM
Yeah, it definitely gets extra points for the hat. :D

Jayne: How's it sit? Pretty cunning, don'tcha think?
Kaylee: I think it's the sweetest hat ever.
Wash: A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything.
Jayne: Damn straight!


And it's got like the best line ever for Jayne.

Jayne: What'd y'all order a dead guy for?

No, it would be twice as long as the other episodes then and wouldn't be fair. Besides, that's how GW lists it on the main site and it was intended to be a two parter in re-runs. This way we can pretend Firefly got 1 extra episode...

Out of Gas is one of the top episodes, imo. The way the story was told was great. I mean you have three time frames from which the story unfolds. Got to see how everyone joined the crew. But especially to see how Mal found Serenity. I love that last sceen where it reveals the salesman trying to sell Mal this different ship (when at first you thought he was talking about Serenity) and he spies her off in the distance.

The fact alone that they were able to craft the story coherently despite being set in multiple time periods shows how awesome that ep was. Right up there with Objects in Space on my list. Anyhoo...

For people sad about The Message's early departure. When I do the count up on tuesday I may allow special rules that may resurrect one episode from the eliminated pile when I do the count up on Valentines day.

You may either vote normally, ie 3 episodes to be eliminated
OR
You can vote for one episode from the eliminated pile to be saved
At the end of the round, the episode with the most votes will either be saved or eliminated (not both)

ie; The Message - 9 votes to be saved
Trash - 10 votes to go

Trash will go, The Message will not be saved

or

The Message- 10 votes to be saved
Trash- 9 votes to be eliminated

The Message would be saved and Trash will not go.

If there is a tie between the episode with the most votes to be eliminated and the episode with the most votes to be saved, the episode with the most votes to be eliminated will go, and the one with most votes to be saved would not be saved.

Ariel for the win.
Out of Gas to go.

Both really good eps, and a tough decision, but the scene from Ariel where Simon is coaching the rest of the crew on how to impersonate EMTs clinches it for me.


Mal: Patients were cynical, and not responding, and we couldn't bring 'em back.
Simon: They were cyanotic…
Mal: They were cyanotic…
Simon: … and not responsive…
Mal: … not responded— responsive…
Simon: … and we were unable to…
Zoë: Res—
Mal: Resuscitate them!
. . .
Simon: Which methods did you use?
Zoë: We— we tried pulmonary stimulators, and— and cardiac… we…
Simon: Infusers.
Zoë: Infusers!
. . .
Simon: What about cortical electrodes?
Jayne: Oh! [long pause] We forget 'em.
Simon: Let's try that again.
[Cut to a montage of ambulance construction scenes and continued medi-speak rehearsals.]
Mal: Pupils were fixed and dilapitated—
Simon: Dilated.
Mal: Dilated. Dilated! Ching-wah TSAO duh liou mahng! Shiny.
. . .
Jayne: Unable to get a neural…
Simon: Response.
Jayne: Response! Hell, I don't know. If I wanted schooling, I'd-a gone to school.

Out of Gas- 8 to win

Out of Gas is officially the greatest firefly episode, Ariel comes a very respectable second

:( My least favourite episode just lost to one of my favourites.

Thanks to everyone who voted.

The tourney is officially closed. Look out for a new firefly tourney in the relatively distant future (ie after GCSEs)

Awesome. It was probably my favourite ep of the show (Perhaps tied with one or two others). Had so many good character moments in this ep.

Was surprised Ariel finished so high. I rate it an average ep.

Thanks for running the Tournament Jedi_Master_Bra'tac. Was good fun :)

Glad to see Out of Gas won, my favorite episode - so many wonderful character moments, plus Mal's first sighting of Serenity :) Jedi-Master Bratac, this was a great thread! :)

Sorry I disappeared from the voting, I had my Region Chorus festival Wed-Sat, and it was AWESOME! Our guest conductor was Dr. Chris Kiver of Penn State, an Australian native, and he was simply amazing with the kids. My student moved on to All-States (yay!!!), but when I got back, my dad was in ICU due to renal (kidney) failure from dehydration, septic shock, and extremely low blood pressure (as in 40 over 14 low), but at this posting his BP is stabilized, he's on multiple antibiotics, and hopefully on the road to recovery.

I personally think we need to re-do this tournament with Story arcs. Firefly is a modern, post Babylon 5 series where the arcs are far more important than the individual stand alone episodes. The story progresses. The mysteries are slowly revealed. People change. That's what makes the show great....

Summary of story arcs:

River Tam
Mal / Adira Ship
Shepherd Book's hidden past and skills
Kaylee / Doctor Tam ship
Mal and his lost faith ( kisses the cross before the end of the war and after...)
Janye's Loyalties
The Reaver's mystery

How about some others?

I really like this idea, and I agree with your point about the arcs making Firefly great. I'm thinking if we do this as a tourney it should be a new thread. You've really hit the main arcs that span the majority of the eps.

A shorter term arc that may be worth including would be the Niska bit.

Regardless, a Mal/Adria ship would be damned interesting. Granted, it would be a rather brief ship what with Mal's propensity to throw the word 'whore' around and Adria's love of ripping out spines to quell insolence, but it would be rather interesting nonetheless.
