Firefly references?

hey! first post here :)

sorry of this seems a bit far fetched but I just watched some Torchwood episodes for the first time and the beginning of ep 1X04 "Cyberwoman" just reminded of a particular Firefly episode. it's the one where they play their ball game (in the beginning of Bushwhacked, methinks) - they seem to be actually doing the same in this Torchwood episode... and the whole environment in which it happens seems like an intentional (?) reference.

So I was wondering in which other shows, movies... we find Firefly rip-off-stuffy-things. Any hints?

(sorry if this has been discussed already)

Author's Note: As a kid, my two favorite TV genres were westerns and detective shows. I finally decided to tackle both in a mix I’ve thought of as “Firefly CSI”. I don’t often write in canon, but just to make things that much more challenging, I decided to try that, too. Special thanks to maureen and evilmaniclaugh for excellent beta and their gracious guidance and to my own big_bad_man for helping me to pound out this convoluted plot.

As I’ve never tackled this sort of thing before, I’d really appreciate hearing what you think. Remember, feedback is what writers (and muses) live for. If you like it, go and pimp it!
