New Review: Firefly 1.7

As much as I liked this episode the first time around, it didn't really come together for me until I watched it a few times. The pieces were all there, but I was enjoying it on the level of its absurdity. But after thinking of this episode in context with "Bushwhacked", there's a definite undercurrent of faith in many of these episodes.

Here's my review for Firefly 1.7: "Jaynestown":

Overall, this episode starts out as an absurd comedy and quickly develops into an exploration on the meaning of faith. As usual, character is king for this series, and just about every scene is predicated on the nature of the people involved. With the abrupt end of the series, it’s hard to know how important these events would have become, but as it stands, it’s still a strong episode.
