absolutely perfect formatting see, now when you review Serenity (the movie, not the pilot), you'll have no complaints from us... at least as to the formatting

Best line;
Simon; "My sisters a ship, we had a complicated childhood"

i'm not sure you experienced this (since it wasn't in your review), but i remember the first time i watched the show, i thought we had some really "high-concept" thing (like Brannon Braga high concept), and River had actually turned into the ship! needless to say, i felt very silly after

Kinky dinky;
Early threatens to rape Kaylee to get her co-operation.
i'm gonna go with Trekker4747 with this one:

This is... "kinky"




He threatens her with rape to convince her to help him, if she doesn't help him he's going to rape her to death! "You'll die crying/weaping."
i don't know where exactly you come from saturn5, but i'm pretty sure most normal people around these parts don't consider rape-to-the-death to be kinky

Early's remark of " Maybe I've always been here?" is very The Shining.
that's very Kosh.

It appears people eat horses in the future.

I think this one gets mis-interpreted a lot. "If wishes were horses..." is a common expression meaning that "if wishes were as plentiful as horses we could have whatever we want."

I've never taken it to mean they "eat horses."
you would think a DS9 fan would already know that.

Thanks for reviewing the series. Interesting to see a Buffy fan's perspective on the whole thing. Looking forward to your review of the movie.

keep flying.
trust in the harper.
the harper is good.
