  • One of the greatest hours of television I've ever seen.

    "Out of Gas" was one of the single greatest hours of television I've ever seen. The show begins with Mal Reynolds in mortal peril, then bounces around in time to show how he reached that point -- and how he gathered his crew. Even though you know in your gut that the hero won't die, you're still as desperate as he is to get him out of his situation. The final scene caps off not only the episode, but gives you an insight into the "tenth" character of the series as well, showing you why exactly Serenity means so much. "Out of Gas" is perfectly written, acted, directed and paced. Stories like this, episodes like this, are what made Firefly so brilliant.
