4 corrected entries in Ariel

Ariel - S1-E8

Corrected entry: When Simon is briefing Mal, Zoe and Jayne, his top changes from a blue shirt and waistcoat to a brown zipped top and back again several times.

Correction: Since the scene cuts back and forth from Simon training the trio, it's implied that they were practicing the lines for a long while, and Simon could easily have changed tops in that time without it being shown on screen.


Ariel - S1-E8

Corrected entry: When leaving the hospital on Ariel, Jayne is arrested along with Simon and River. His hands are cuffed behind his back. However, when he is stunned by the police officer a moment later and falls to the ground, his hands are in front of him and there is no sign of the cuffs. (00:25:30)

Correction: The cuffs are not on Jayne, yet. He breaks free before they have him fully cuffed.

Ariel - S1-E8

Corrected entry: When Wash and Kaylee are in the junk yard, Wash picks up an engine part and kicks it. If you look closely, you can see that this is the same part that fails in "Out of Gas".

Correction: No, it isn't. The piece Wash throws (not kicks, by the way) is a completely different piece. In "Out of Gas" the engine part that fails is a Y-shaped tube. In "Ariel" the piece is very obviously F-shaped when you freeze frame.

Ariel - S1-E8

Corrected entry: When Simon is using the defibrillator paddles on the post-operative patient in the hospital on Ariel, he is not holding onto the rubber handles of the paddles when he says "Clear." to have the nurse administer the first shock. Rather, he is holding onto the metal ends of the paddles right next to the shock pads. This means that he would have shocked himself as well as the patient. (00:19:35)

Correction: That would be true today, but the show is set several hundred years in the future. It is entirely possible in that time they have paddles that are completely safe except on the flat pads themselves.

[About Jayne's statue.]
Wash: I think they captured him. Captured his esscence, you know?
Kaylee: He looks kinda angry.
Wash: That's kinda what I meant.



When Shepherd Book tells everyone about the electrical nets, Jayne says, "One day you're gonna tell us all how a preacher knows so damn much about crime." Shepherd then turns to leave. But in the immediate close up of him and Mal, he turns to leave again.
