    No Out of Gas love? Suit yerselves
    Equality is not a concept. It's not something we should be striving for. It's a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women. And the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman who is confronted with it.
    - Joss Whedon - Equality Now

    I hate to be a pain, but shouldn't Serenity be counted as one episode as that's how it was intended?

    Anyway, least favourite episodes would be.....

    *Jaynestown
    **Safe

    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!

    Yeah, it definitely gets extra points for the hat.

    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...

    Why is there so little love for Bushwhacked? And why is Out of Gas appearing?! *Grumble*

    Anyway, bottom three:
    - Trash
    - Heart of Gold
    - The Message
    Jayne - Ain't logical. Cuttin' on his own face, rapin' and murdering - Hell, I'll kill a man in a fair fight... or if I think he's gonna start a fair fight, or if he bothers me, or if there's a woman, or if I'm gettin' paid - mostly only when I'm gettin' paid. But these Reavers... last ten years they show up like the bogeyman from stories. Eating people alive? Where's that get fun?
    Kaylee - Shepherd Book said they was men who just reached the edge of space, saw a vasty nothingness, and went bibbledy over it.
    Jayne - Oh, hell, i've been to the edge. Just looked like... more space.
    - Serenity

    I personally voted for those two episodes because there wasn't much action in either of them.

    Because there wasn't much action or there was too much action?
