I've been rewatching Firefly this summer and I just got to "Objects in Space" and it gave me thoughts so I thought I'd share them.

Joss Whedon (quite rightly) gets criticized for his obsession with crazy girls. And River certainly fits this mold. But I love her. For most of the run she is merely crazy, she doesn't have any agency (it's been taken from her by the Alliance) and it doesn't seem like she'll ever be able to get it back. "Objects in Space" changes this, it shows the beginning of a real arc for River that we never got on TV and only got a little bit in the movie.

A long Ramble on  )

That probably didn't make much sense since it is the middle of the night but it needed to come out of my head.
