Because it's a better episode?
No, no that's not it.
TJ is a ham-handed rush job that Minear and Whedon whacked together in a 3-day weekend because the Fox Execs didn't think "Serenity" had enough joe-six-pack action.
Exactly. "Time for some thrilling heroics."

I wouldn't call it "ham-handed", even though it was written in a rush. The fight scene had some decent moments. I like the Niska character, and the dispatch of Crow was pretty funny as was the next henchman's reaction.
Niska was a GREAT character, and I'm glad they created him so he could come back later and be all menacing and such.
