Too pretty?
Certainly a matter of opinion ...

And cowboys in space ... the concept is fun, but admittedly, hackneyed, kinda like vampires in California ;).
Re: Too pretty?
Very true, but I find that his earlier shows, especially the earlier seasons, were far and away his best works. I'm worried that the pressure has gotten to him, or that he is starting to think too highly of himself. The man is slated to do Wonder Woman. Here's to hoping he can write a female character that isn't slapstick, most of the time.
Re: Too pretty?
Curious. I've heard Joss Whedon fans complain that Buffy and spinoffs were getting boring because after a while all of the characters were merely variations on a theme (I haven't seen Buffy, so I don't know).

The reason they enjoy Firefly is because while the characters are mostly outlaws they're all very different in who they are and the constant tension is the very delicate balancing act that Whedon has to maintain between the characters common needs holding them together and their extreme differences driving them apart. The latter is what started breaking the crew down at the end of the series.

I'll be the first to admit that the "cowboy" theme was stretched pretty thin in places but, for the most part, I thought it worked well (this coming from someone who is not a fan of Westerns).
Re: Too pretty?
Yes you can add me.

As for the "right" Westerns, which would those be? All in all, the entire era just does nothing for me.
