    I keep thinking "Firefly?" "Brisco County?" ......... ? Someone at Fox must love this as a concept.

    You can go back as far as The Wild Wild West for that particular mashup. I think it's popular because both genres deal with pioneers on a new frontier.

    Well, it was FOX that gave "Firefly" a chance in the first place. I doubt the show has much of a shot at long-term survival, even if the network had a better marketing strategy for the show.

    FOX gets a bad rap, because it cancels more great shows than any of the other networks. But it also takes a chance on probably more great shows than all of the others combined.

    It isn't these guys' fault what happened with Firefly in any case. I love Chuck and don't mind seeing what they come up with.

    well i find it ironic that fox is looking for a 'space western' after how they treated firefly.
