Much as I’d like to claim that something important about Adam Baldwin’s character of Jayne was our kid’s takeaway from this episode, it wasn’t. He certainly enjoyed the scenario and everybody’s performances. Our heroes stop in on a distant, poverty-racked moon only to learn that Jayne is a folk hero, because he’d dumped stolen money here four years previously in order to reach escape velocity in a crippled ship. He has a statue and even a song, and it’s very, very funny.
But no, the high point for our son was Ron Glass’s remarkable head of hair, which is of course normally tied down in a ponytail. He’s going to be chuckling about this for another week.
