Twelve episodes in, we come to one of my favorites from the Firefly series, The Message. The dead body of a fallen soldier is delivered to Mal and Zoe. For some reason, the police are in hot pursuit. An attempted autopsy brings about a rude awakening, and the body is very much alive. Turns out, he's transporting someone else's organs in order to make some quick cash for his family. Will he get home in time to deliver the goods, or will Mal and Zoe turn him in to the fuzz?

It's a harrowing tale, complete with a socially inept doctor, a naked soldier and something in a jar. As per usual with my Firefly commentaries, please wait for my preemptive countdown before starting the episode on your DVD.
