We know not at what depths the currents that compelled us to discuss and "review" classic sci-fi tv and movies in a laid-back, slightly analytical, somewhat-humorous fashion run.



So what do we know?



It was all inevitable.

    Firefly 12 – The Message

    Firefly 12 – The Message

    I’m sending out an SOS.

    I hope that someone gets my message in a bottle. Yeah I just quoted a Police song in the podcast description. What are you gonna do about it? That’s right, nothing cuz the version of me that wrote this is long moved past this joke by the time you read this. It’s The Message, written by Joss Whedon and Tim Minear and aired on July 15, 2003.



    Show-notes:



    2:01: Check out Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast, our Doctor Who podcast.

    4:21: For everybody else who doesn’t know who Jerry Bruckheimer is, Wikipedia is here to help.

    7:01: Damn…

    7:22: As I’m about to discover, Iron Man is actually a Black Sabbath song, not an AC/DC song.

    8:52: DOCTOR WHOOOO HEY. Doctor Who.

    9:30: Movements in Film has more information on the Kuleshov effect if you’re curious. And why wouldn’t you be?

    25:00: Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing Isn’t Much of Anything at All. Enjoy this Wired article you freaks.

    31:30: I really did google it, and the second result that came up is this Discover article on removing someone’s amygdala.

    Firefly 11 – Trash

    Firefly 11 – Trash

    Something something wish dot com tactical jacket.

    Look I’ll give it to you straight doc, I don’t know what to write here. I could make a bunch of jokes about trash but Kiyan made most of them in the episode. Ok so did I, I made a bunch of those jokes too. So it seems kind of overplayed now, I don’t want to beat the dead horse, you know? This nonsense late night rambling will have to do for you. It’s Trash, written by Ben Edlund and Jose Molina and aired on June 28, 2003.



    Show-notes:

    0:52: Wow my accent really came out here for some reason.

    1:36: Here’s the same article I linked a few weeks ago indicating that Firefly was rerun.

    6:01: Some hero uploaded the opening scene of Breaking Bad to YouTube so we can confirm this for you.

    7:10: fornoob dot com has some more information on Mal’s tattoo. Apparently Nathan Fillion got it when he was young and now regrets it. Lmao sucks.

    12:41: Check out Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast, our Doctor Who podcast.

    15:40: Check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, our Blake’s 7 podcast.

    Firefly 10 – War Stories

    Firefly 10 – War Stories

    If I could have titled this episode, it would have been titled “The Absolution of Jayne Cobb” (Editor’s note: I like “Toiling Down Memory Lane” better.)

    Once upon a time I fought in a war. I mean, not really. I couldn’t even comprehend what it would be like to fight in a war. I’m actually a vehement pacifist. That last statement is true, by the way, I didn’t make it up for this sort of pseudo-story I’m telling in the episode description. It’s War Stories, written by Cheryl Cain and aired on December 6, 2002



    Show-notes:

    1:16: I’d actually highly recommend checking out All That Jazz, it’s great.

    12:28: It was me James, the author of All Your Pain.

    12:55: I jerked you off at superspeed!

    23:25: You can go back and find that discussion in our episode on Serenity.

    26:15: Yeah, they were ghillie suits.

    31:36: Ok, fine, you’ve twisted my arm. I’ll link to How The Grinch Stole Christmas. (Editor’s note: why? Also check out Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast, our Doctor Who Podcast, to hear us talk about Doctor Who.)

    33:53: Christianity.com says that “masturbation is the result of sin”, not that masturbation is a sin itself. The guy I was talking about here was Onan. He kinda screwed in this whole debate honestly. For a potentially more “neutral” view on the topic, you can check wikipedia’s Religious Views on Masturbation.

    37:44: GORE WARNING. Here’s the paper with surgical pictures of a reattached ear.

    38:55: Here, go ahead, I know you wanted the article about reattaching someone’s g******s.

    39:37: See show-note 37:44.

    40:36: Couldn’t really find anything outright saying literati is a derogatory term, but considering what literati means I can definitely see it being used that way.

    45:01: Fun fact, The Power and the Glory was apparently first published in the US under a different name.

    46:20: For some reason the only video I could find of the ending to Bourne Identity included the entire credits. Also, check out our Bourne episode over on Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast, our movie trilogy podcast.

    47:41: This is probably an overgeneralization, but oh well. Here’s a href="https://en.wikipedia.

    Firefly 9 – Ariel

    Firefly 9 – Ariel

    Yeah, just to confirm, I still think of the font when I read this title.

    The font is actually spelled totally differently, you know. It’s spelled like Arial, whereas this episode actually is spelled like the name of the little mermaid, Ariel. Just wanted to make sure I put that information out into the world. It’s Ariel, written by Jose Molina and aired on November 15, 2002



    Show-notes:

    1:38: No, I will not tell you who I know on Greenleaf.

    2:06: Here’s a picture of Jose Molina. Not to be confused with the baseball player, of course.

    13:19: I actually thought about linking Robin Hood here, but if you don’t know who or what Robin Hood is then… come on, you know?

    15:50: A surprisingly small amount of people actually realize that Ocean’s Eleven is a remake of a movie from 1960. We also talked about the original O11 on Triple Play.

    28:57: Interstingly, House actually began airing after Firefly. Not that we were saying this was a direct and explicit reference or anything.

    38:52: Speaking of Doctor Who, Doctor Who is back with Doctor Who: Flux! Check out our coverage of Doctor Who: Flux on our Doctor Who podcast, Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast.

    40:42: Wikipedia has all the TV Parent’s Guide ratings documented pretty well.

    44:52: THEY’REE HEEEEEEERRREEE

    57:37: Hear more of our unpopular opinions on Ocean’s 11/12/13 on Triple Play episode.

    Firefly 8 – Out of Gas

    Firefly 8 – Out of Gas

    I almost ran out of gas getting to the gas station the other day.

    So I’m pretty sure I have a 10 gallon tank and somehow the other day I put 10.2 gallons in my car. Either I somehow have a larger tank or I overfilled the car. Or, by some miracle, my car was literally running on fumes. Look there must be a simple explanation to this but for some reason I choose to believe the most fantastical. It’s Out of Gas, written by Tim Minear and aired on October 25, 2002



    Show-notes:

    1:44: Literally via the the Oxford English Dictionary [Editor’s note: is this just a copypasted definition from the page for “literally?”] I. a. In a literal, exact, or actual sense; not figuratively, allegorically, etc. […] c. colloquial. Used to indicate that some (frequently conventional) metaphorical or hyperbolical expression is to be taken in the strongest admissible sense: ‘virtually, as good as’; (also) ‘completely, utterly, absolutely’.

    2:06: Doctor Who: Flux Episode 1: The Halloween Apocalypse went out on October 31, 2021. Our episode on it will go out in November 7, 2021. Catch it on Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast, our Doctor Who podcast.

    3:56: 10 Hidden Details You Missed in The Episode Out of Gas. This has to be the worst article title of all time, by the way.

    17:04: Believe it or not, both cosmetology and cosmology both originate  (if you go far enough back) from the word kosmos. Thanks etymonline. [Editor’s note: Wait, why is this hard to believe?]

    21:20: Gonna link the Magnum, PI wiki for all you under-30s out there. [Editor’s note: We’re under 30.]

    22:26: Here’s a good article on being an accent chameleon.

    33:10: Here’s the TV Tropes recap page for Out of Gas in case you really REALLY have nothing better to do.

    59:27: I don’t remember what my order was either, but you can find out for me if you go and listen to our Fall Out episode of Inevitable.

    1:04:30: Angel began airing in 1999, so before Firefly.

    1:05:43: Never eat pears. Also I was mistaken, this was in Human Nature, not Blink.

    1:11:12: NaNoWriMo 2021 has officially started. If you want to read my (Dylan’s) novel as I write it, I’m putting the full text online day by day over here.

    1:12:29: The documentary is called What We Left Behind.

    1:13:31: Apparently the Science Channel re-ran Firefly in 2011.

    1:15:59: Victor Mair writes a little on the mutual intelligibility of Sinitic languages.

    Firefly 7 – Jaynestown

    Firefly 7 – Jaynestown

    Apparently “Jaynestown” is frequently featured on “wtf is this in Firefly” lists. [Editor’s note: I assume that Dylan assumed that I would add more to this intro. Little did he know that I’m actually going to add nothing to it at all… wait, damn!]

    It’s Jaynestown, written by Ben Edlund and aired on October 18, 2002



    Show-notes:

    2:30: Ben Edlund really did create the Tick, we didn’t make this part up.

    3:55: Just gonna link
