Thanks Jack, Melissa, Ian and Judith (and anyone I forgot) for your urgings 
re Firefly.
Melissa, I have the feeling they must have screened it out of order here, 
because yet another episode was shown last night--the very episode you 
mentioned, "Shindig", which according to the episode order is fourth, while 
the one they showed the night before was "Trash", which is second-last. It 
looks as if I will just have to get hold of the DVD and see the episodes in 
the right order.

I'll be looking out for the movie later this year, then, too.
