Re: Firefly first-time/rewatch (NO SPOILERS, please)

Mal's awkwardness with women and Inara in particular never really bothered me, because I can see why it might have developed based on his (presumptive) background, what we know he spent a lot of his life doing, and Inara's background. I'm enjoying reading people's responses to the show.

ETA: Doesn't Baldwin use the 'I was aiming for his head' gag. I'm sure I've heard that before, but did Whedon originate it?
If you're a Castle watcher (and if you're not, why not?! As much as I adore Firefly I wouldn't trade Castle for more of it), you might be remembering it from an early episode when Castle says that line. It's possibly (probably?) one of the several Firefly references in Castle.
