I really hope that Fox does not cancel this show. It has great potential and the latest episode was another proof for this. The plot itself was nothing special but I love the characters and their interaction. When I first read about 9 main characters I was worried, but it works, much better than I would have expected. I am a little afraid that the lack of action evoked through the big cast might be a problem for the longevity of the show. But give me interesting characters, witty dialog and great stories anytime, I don't need 2 or 3 major action sequences every episode. Firefly 1.04 (Actually 1.06, damn you Fox for screwing around with the episode order): Great episode which did not shine with a very good plot but once more showcased the fantastic interaction of the Cast. It was nice to see River finally talking in whole sentences and she even got the biggest laughs of the episode (at least from me ). The scenes with Kaylee and Simon where also very good and I hope the tension between those two won't be overstretched too much. Makes me think if there is another early main cast member death that Joss is planning. This episode actually had character development, mainly Jayne's but also some for Simon.
