most of that got ate up by the fire on its way out the door

One blooper I've always noticed is during the fire evacuation scene in Out of Gas. When Mal opens Serenity's cargo doors out into space, you see the fire fly by the workout bench and weights. Sure those are heavy, but not so that they wouldn't be ripped from the floor and flung like rubber chickens at the door with the crates. I'm thinking the producers felt that either people wouldn't notice they didn't move, or would think that their weight would prevent them from moving (or perhaps they forgot about them all together). As they are important background props used in various episodes, they couldn't very well let them be ejected into space, but having them flung willy nilly at the doors would have helped emphasize just how powerful the vacuum of space truly is.

The bench may have been bolted down, and the weights very well could have a mass/cross-sectional area ratio high enough for them not to have been blown (sucked?) out.

Yeah, if I had a spaceship (with artificial gravity, or not) And I had a weight bench aboard, I would bolt down the bench, and have some way of securing the weights wall in flight. (though I guess I wouldn't need weights if I didn't have artificial gravity) You never know when, things might go weightless, get blown, or sucked, around, or bump your ship into something (like a plannet) and you don't want that kind of weight flying around loose.

Actually I think of it the other way around. I think the blooper would be that they didn't secure their cargo better.

One continuity error I noticed in this episode is when Mal is showing Zoe Serenity for the first time.Mal's coat has the repaired gunshot
that he received from Patience in the pilot episode.That said this is my favorite episode,Mal's face in the last shot tells you everything you need to know about how he feels toward Serenity.
