I thought Safe was the best episode so far. It felt more substantial than the earlier ones and was pretty exciting too.
I think it's "safe" to say that Safe
is generally regarded as the weakest
of all firefly
episodes. If you like this, it only gets better
"Safe" and "Heart of Gold" are the two weakest episodes for me (pretty much in that order) but, again, they're only the weakest because something
has to be and they're still a lot more watchable than some of Trek's weakest episodes.
That said, the episode does have one of the very best exchanges in the show:
RIVER: They weren't cows inside. They were waiting to be, but they forgot. Now they see sky and they remember what they are.
MAL: Is it bad that what she just said makes perfect sense to me?
I did love that line.
For me, and for many of us, the future is now in the past.
