joss's new show

Forgive me, I'm slow. I just found out (from Caz) that Joss Whedon (the creator of Buffy and Angel, two shows with thumbs up on my Tivo) has a new show coming to Fox soon.

Let's see. Sci-fi premise. Fugative ship. Dangerous universe. Motley crew brought together by circumstance. A soldier, a pilot, a priest. Sound familiar yet?

Still, even if the pieces are the same, Joss is a master storyteller and a great writer. I hope he can pull it off.

» A lot of people have been saying Firefly sounds like a Babylon 5 and Andromeda (?) rip off. However, someone countered that the characters are archetypes, in place in every SF series, and in Westerns. Which reminds me, Joss has said Firefly's more like a Western in space. There won't be aliens or monsters. It's about people.

  Gaming the system: How moderation tools can backfire
Sometimes all the widgets backfire, encouraging the very behavior they're designed to avert. The rules have a dangerous side-effect: they create a game.
