It’s the last episode of Firefly, and I bet you never thought we’d make it to the end, but here we are. Enjoy our chat of “Objects in Space.” Maybe someday we will watch the movie…apologies for the excess white noise in this episode; we shared recording space with a variety of guests this week.

Content warning: this episode of Firefly served as fodder for some more serious and adult themes in our discussion, so you may want to not play this around young children. We stray from our typical formula, and instead discuss some of the key issues in this episode, including gay/lesbian relationships, sex discriminiation, marital problems, and torture. Also, Ms. Rowse talks A LOT and for that, she will not apologize.

Fair warning on this episode: when we recorded this one, it had been a few months since we podded. So it takes us a while to get back into it. The summary is a hot mess that we hope makes you laugh.  You might be better served by heading to Wikipedia or IMDB to read the synopsis. But once we get past that, we start to gel. Until we get to Kenneth’s middle name and then…Rate us on iTunes! Special thanks to Alec Koukol for the intro music.
