The Creeps
30 December 2006 | by piratecat-2See all my reviews

This episode is our first introduction to the REAVERS. We never see them in Bushwacked or nor through the whole firefly episodes. Even though the pilot Serenity is the introduction of REAVERS it is aired out of sequence. The Big Damn Movie by the name of SERENITY shows us Reavers and their grotesque fowl look for the first time we just imagine them as the horrid creepy cannibals that they are. Look this episode has the feeling of alien in it. Your waiting for something to jump out at you. AND IT DOES. When Big Bad Jayne the Merck is scared its time to lock and load. Captain Reynolds only priority is to protect the women. War veterans can not deal with the lack of humanity that Reavers reap upon their victims. When you sniff REAVER country its time to hit the black and get back into the verse with Alliance cruiser near by.
