Extremely nit-picky one: In Bushwhacked, when Zoe says "Ship powered down on its own" there's no static-y clicking sound of the suit communicators turning on and off before and after she speaks, although the sound is present in all of her other lines while suited.

She could have curled it but in the 'Message' commentary they mention that she finally had her hair straightened. Does it look like naturally curly hair in HoG and OiS?



Yeah, actually, it does - or more specifically, it looks like someone who has naturally curly hair and has 'helped' it along to make the curls more perfect. I have a friend who has lovely, amazing curls naturally, and then she finishes it off by spiraling with a curling iron, to make them look neater. Hot rollers do the same thing for my own (curly) hair - take it from a messy curl to something like what Inara's looks like.

And both of us can wear it straight as Inara's was. So I think it'd /quite/ possible to have that change in looks naturally. It just takes a bit of patience with a straightening iron and the right hair products.

Objects in Space was supposed to be BEFORE Trash, The Message & Heart of Gold. Joss, for his own reasons, wanted it moved to the end and even refilmed one scene to try to make it fit, but all the references to River in the 4 episodes are completely out of whack if OiS is put last and since the refilmed scene OiS doesn't fit anywhere now.

Posted by Kaythryn:
I always thought that was because he was rolling around in the hay filled box that Tracey was delivered in.

I think Kaythryn is right. Alan Tudyk points out this same blooper on the commentary but when you watch that scene Jayne is checking out the crate that held Tracey's coffin and it's filled with hay.

Actually, from what I understand, OiS was supposed to air 14th, after HoG. However, Fox decided to air OiS before HoG was shown, which meant Joss had to reshoot the scene where Mal and Inara are talking about her leaving. The DVDs were done in the order originally intended.

Speaking of bloopers, a couple I noticed:

In Trash, when Wash is doing his "WHAT'S SHE DOING ON THIS SHIP?!" thing, you can see Kaylee/Jewel start cracking up. Probably wasn't done on purpose.

The other one is in Out of Gas, with the ship-wide "Life Support Failure" warning being repeated in Cantonese, rather than Mandarin. Unless Serenity was built and meant to be used in an area which was predominantly Cantonese, this wouldn't make sense.

Although it's possible it was on purpose, because remember they are all trying to 'play' Saffron and as Inara said at the end, not all of the crew's performances were that great. I thought both Alan Tudyk and Jewel Staite were trying to over-do it a little in that scene since Wash and Kaylee aren't supposed to be that great at the subterfuge thing.

"Probably wasn't done on purpose" is hardly a blooper. Actors "act", which means adding to the script when they feel it is necessary. The director left it in, so it's not a mistake.

What's wrong with Cantonese? Even if other messages on the ship were in Mandarin, I wouldn't call it a blooper. Different parts of the ship manufactured by different companies.

I just re-watched Heart of Gold and if you look carefully, as Burgess is backing out of the door with the baby and turns to point his laser gun towards the approaching Nandi, you can see he's holding a doll instead of a real baby (although there's a real baby before and after)...maybe it had to be re-shot and the/a baby wasn't available?

Actually, since he DOES say "you mean she really reads minds" one could assume the "mind reading genius" comment he made in "The Message" was meant as a joke on Jayne's part and he was surprised his joking comment was actually true.

I noticed in Safe, when Mal is trying to sell the cows and the buyer complains they haven't been fed properly, Mal says he'd been feeding them milk and hay three times a day. Well I don't think you feed milk to cows. Should say water. If they drank milk, you could just link some tubes from their udders to the mouth.

On my taped copy of Ariel (stil waiting for DVD region 2) the spanner Mal uses to whack Jayne dissapears as he's hitting him. Looks like they forgot, or didn't have time, to cgi it in. Is this mentioned in the commentaries?

Also, I recently saw Lost in translation with several visible booms. If filmmakers don't have a cgi budget, can't they just edit the shot - maybe cut off the top end and slightly stretch it, or shift the whole visible area down?

Actually, the problem would not have been with the film, but with your projectionist. There is a lot more information that is caught on a film than is intended to be seen. When a film is projected it's intended to be "framed" in such a way so you only see as much as the filmmaker intended. Just as if you were watching a film where the projectionist framed the film too tightly and cut of folk's heads.

Roger Ebert harps on this fairly regularly.

As Xenarc mentions, this appears to be part of the salespitch. I think it's a smart-alex reference to "milk-fed veal" which is supposedly more tender and valuable... some cattle are actually milk-fed. Of course, these animals are neither veal calves nor would they actually be milk-fed, but the mental image of beautiful women handfeeding hay and milk to cows makes them sound like they've been very well treated.

I think this is Mal's tongue in cheek response to the accusation that the animals haven't been well fed. "Crap talk" as he puts it, in Mandarin.

Mal's just bantering in the time-honoured tradition of haggling.

Um... about the hay in Jayne's hat...

The hat is first covered with shipping 'hay' from the box his Ma used as filler. The second time we see Jayne's hat covered with shipping 'hay' is when he is breaking down the crate, also filled with shipping 'hay'. If you notice, he is tearing the wood to tiny pieces and they shipping 'hay' is all about him.

I know this to be true because I have watched this episode many, many times. Of course, I could be wrong.

Wow, nice catch there.

Shortly after Zoe says 'they weren't after the goods,' look for a long shot of all three of them walking through the desert. To the left of the screen, there's a highway visible in the distance - one car going left, another going right.

If you listen to the commentary for 'The Message', Alan Tudyk points out the exact scenes where it doesn't make sense that the hay disappears and then re-appears while Jayne's in the infirmary...

I saw that as well, but I figured it was not the true mule locomotion but instead an extra bit help to steady the mule and stop it at an exact spot, so that it was properly framed for the camera shot.

Interestingly, it only is visible in the bottom right hand corner when playing the DVD on my PowerBook. if I play the DVD on my TV, then that blooper in the corner is not visible (probably my cheap TV screen).

One detail I've appreciated is how the tear in the left arm of Mal's coat is mended. (We see it get torn when he gets grazed during the shootout with Patience in Serenity)

There are, however, two instances where the mend is there when it shouldn't be: the flashback scene in Out of Gas, and the scene in Serenity where Mal and Zoe discuss shooting the passengers "politely" if they get too nosy (a scene which Joss describes as a "reshoot" in the commentary).

If you play a dvd on your pc or laptop the player will display the whole digital picture on your screen. When playing a dvd on your television the edges will get cut off by the edge of your screen because the video picture on a TV is overscanned.

For an example... if you take a 640x480 pixel picture and display it in NTSC video format on a television... 5% of the outer edge of the picture will extend past the edge of the visible TV screen. Take the same 640x480 picture and display it on a computer screen and you'll see the whole thing. Computer screens are underscan. TV is overscan. There are parts of the NTSC video signal that are visible at the top that would be distracting so TV manufacturers frame in the picture tube screen to hide that part of the picture. This has been going on for many decades.

But now with the advent of digital projection, LCD, Plasma, and DLP televisions they can digitally cut off that top edge and present just the intended visible picture.

Here's the biggest blooper of them all -- in OoG, where Mal makes his way to the infirmary and shoots himself in the heart with adrenaline -- in real life, this would have put him very quickly first into cardiac fibrillation and then into cardiac arrest and the show would have ended right there! "You're dead, Mal..."

Yeah, yeah, I know, it isn't ER, but Joss really screwed up on this one, especially since he had Gina shot up beforehand specifically to set up for Mal doing that to himself.

Wasn't this Tim Minear's screw up *wink* - I think he wrote and directed OoG. Still, it seems a big gaff doesn't it? I've seen it done on people whose hearts have stopped beating in movies but don't recall anyone stabbing their own heart with adrenaline. I do remember Aeryn's mother on Farscape taking an adrenaline drug/shot but it certainly wasn't direct to the heart like what Mal did.

Tim did write it. As co-Executive Producers both Tim and Joss are culpable and clueless to what an addrenaline shot to the heart would do to a man.

Silly boys -- looking for excitement...

Don't get me wrong -- I love OoG (my favorite episode). Perfect flashback within flashback technique, plenty of memorable lines, wonderful crew interaction, terrific story -- all shiny. It's just that the whole scene was so unnecessary to carry the story and I really had to consciously 'suspend disbelief' to get back into the episode.

I saw this once, years ago, at a showing of "Time Bandits". In one sequence you could see the mike on its boom, first pointing to one character, then another, as they spoke. It went on so long that the audience began to shout for the projectionist to put down his doobie and fix it.

OK, I'm not sure if this has been commented on yet, or even if I saw it correctly (I loaned out my DVD's and am still awaiting their return anxiously) In Ariel, when Jayne gets shot by the Alliance, was he handcuffed before he was shot, then not when he hit the ground. I remember that bothering me the last time I watched though I didn't go back and check to see if I saw it correctly.

Got to go back and look at that myself. They were in the process of handcuffing him, but it may be that he broke away before they finished; i.e., only one hand. Things go by so fast sometimes you miss them, like in the next sequence I was thinking "no, he was handcuffed in back, and now his hands are in front.." but then there was that quick little shot of him scooting his feet through. Hats off to Jayne for that one, couldn't have been easy for somebody that big and muscular..LOL

I thought it was that too at first. But there's another problem. If the debris was 'blown out' of the cargo bay, wouldnt it still be moving outwards with respect to Serenity? It couldnt all of a sudden stop with respect to the ship, since there is no friction or any force stopping it.

And another problem - we see later in the episode that, just before Mal falls down to the floor of the cargo bay, the other ship is still there. The episode opens with a shot of Serenity with nothing anywhere nearby. The two exterior shots should take place at exactly the same moment in time, but they're very different.

In Heart of Gold, the shot when the girl who's betrayed Nandi lets Rance in, there is a HUGE TRUCK or TRAILER thing behind him. The first time I saw it I could not believe it. It's really hard to see 'cause it's really fast. I had to slow it down to see a glimpse of what it was.

Yes, but with all the cutting back and forth between time-frames, I suppose this could be easily explained away by claiming the first shot was actually just prior to the second ship arriving, and then when they cut into the interior of the cargo bay to see Mal collapse, it's actually a few hours later...

Incidentally, I've tried to archive all of the mentioned bloopers on the browncoats.com site here:

Please let me know if I've missed anything or mis-attributed anything, or if you've come across any other interesting bloopers/easter eggs.

I more noticed the stationary 'lamp' that looked like set lighting than the cords but, on the same page.

I spotted that the first time I saw it, and figured it was just some kinda peripheral to the house (y'know, like a backup generator or comm gear, or supply storehouse or something).

In The Train Job you can see a camera man to the right of the screen when Wash runs down one of Niska's men on the Mule as he is going down the door/ramp of Serenity.

Not exactly a blooper, but laughable:

Before the DVDs came out, one of my fave, most-remembered scenes was Shindig, Mal just stabbing Atherton for the sheer malice of it. But watching it on DVD a couple times, I eventually noticed that where they show Mal stabbing him ... two or three times ... it's SO obvious the blade isn't even breaking the fabric of Atherton's clothing. I don't need to see a lot of blood in my TV (though I HATE when people get stabbed/slashed and the blade comes out totally clean), but if you're gonna do a closeup of someone getting stabbed, rig the freakin' effect right ...

(or would this be the third time I've posted today and turned out to have remembered wrongly?)



"Bang."



i thought Atherton was being poked. Won't that be incredibly annoying? Hehe.

Can believe no-one's mentioned this yet:

In Ariel in all the shots of the ambulance, you can see a set of wheels underneath the left-hand "landing gear" partially draped in black cloth. Looking closely, you can see the set under the other gear have been fully draped.
