This is not the first time I've watched Firefly for sure, and I love this show beyond reason... but watching it for the express purpose of commenting on it here has really had an impact on me! This must be the first time I actually thought about the show rather than mindlessly enjoying the heck out of it because it pushes all my happy buttons.
Still love: Wash with all his insecurity and fondness for dinosaur drama, the 'gee mister' sunniness of Kaylee, grumpy Mal, competent Zoe, and the man they call Jayne.
Meh: Book when he's not kicking ass, Simon and River in this ep.
Haaaate: Inara, space hooker! Her sniffy condescending attitude really grated, and shockingly it's never bugged me this much before. I know she's supposed to come off as mysterious and wise, but it registers as haughty and insufferable with me. I always knew she wasn't my favorite, but I'm kind of surprised by how much she pissed me off. I'm kind of looking forward to seeing just how much I hate her by the end of the rewatch!
