Once in a while a piece of Television comes along and stands out from the other fuzz which is boardcast over the air waves. Firefly is that television... What sheer brilliance this week. A true excellence piece of storytelling. From three different time lines, past, present and future we watch the story unfold.

We find the crew in fits of laugher and even a surprise birthday cake greets us... that should have been our first clue. Then things go down hill fast with the ship being disabled mid flight. But Mal managers to overcome the odds and even a hijacking and come out on top. We're shown back story on how Mal came to purchase Serenity and meet the other crew members.

I can't speak highly enough of this episode, true creative genius!
