Speaking of Firefly...

Does anybody know the exact order the episode order in which the episodes should be viewed?

I know that Fox aired them out of order.

There is some talk that Whedon changed the order on DVD to so that an alleged last episode was replaced by another episode that wasn't actually the last, because of emotional content, and that he's on record as saying Messages was supposed to be the last ep?!

There is a claim that the Wikipedia order (at least at the time of the post) was incorrect.

There is another claim that The Train Job, not Serenity 1&2 was meant to be the pilot.

I have no idea.

Oy!

The more I read, the less I know.

There is the Airing order, which we know was wrong.

There is the Production order, of which I'm not sure, as series are sometime shot out of order for logistical reasons.

There is Rando order in which various people interpret event chronology that favors a different chronological order.

And maybe a Retcon order orchestrated by Whedon himself.

I've only seen maybe three episodes, and would like to watch the show as Joss meant it to be seen, assuming there is such an order.

None of these may take into account flaws in story continuity that may make an episode look like it should be #5 when it was aired as #9, but was filmed to be #6, if there were any.

Is there the One True Viewing Order?





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I don't know. But FOX aired the Train Job first, which had no context and it was a rear WTF? when it aired. Then 2 weeks of football, and aired at either a different time, or day, or both. Did that piss poor scheduling randomizer and killed the show.

I've got the DVD set from the original run. But Whedon may have altered his recollection on things, much like George Lucas has done countless times. Even with a video clip of him saying something, and he still denied it.

The DVD set has 2 episodes that Fox never actually aired.

Are those episodes on Netflix/Amazon/Hulu? The idea of having two unwatched episodes of Firefly has me giddy with excitement.

AFAIK the order in the DVD set is "correct."

The Train Job was re-ordered as a first episode by the network and the original Serenity pilot episodes were pushed back. Dumb decision, but hardly the only one concerning that show.

I don't exactly remember, but FOX stopped airing the show with 2 episodes left unaired.

Jayne probably did, while wearing a pretty bonnet. Just saying.
