New Review: Firefly 1.5

This is one of those episodes that struck me a certain way during first run, and nothing in repeated viewings has really given it more resonance. It's not a bad episode...it's just average, which is unusual for the series. How crazy is it when an average episode can be considered a disappointment?

Here's my review for Firefly 1.5: "Safe":

Overall, this episode fleshed out the relationship between Simon and River, demonstrating just how willing Simon is to sacrifice for River’s welfare. Book and Simon both become part of the crew in this episode, something that is not quite covered as well as it should have been. The implications regarding Book and the Tams, however, make this an important episode.
