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.

Thats the first thing I thought when I saw the thread titel.
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

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.

Yeah, it's a good thing Fox isn't CBS, otherwise we'd have House: Miami, House: Las Vegas, and then a bunch of other House-like shows with a similar twist. /img/vbsmilies/htf/biggrin.gif

(Does CBS air anything but crime procedurals?  Yes I realize it's a slight exaggeration, they have HIMYM and Big Bang Theory, but still).
