by jerad.formby

A few years ago, it was announced that Joss Whedon would be developing a new project with Eliza Dushku. Legend has it that he came up with the concept on the spot while the two of them had lunch.

The show had a science-fiction concept, would be called Dollhouse, and it would be shown on FOX.

To many Joss Whedon fans this was like watching your friends board the Titanic.

lets talk some firefly and what the hells wrong over at FOX
the rickety tower where FOX programming decisions are made
Meanwhile, back at the lab, the FOX studio executives are back and their making those same, strange decisions that alienate fans of their shows.

I’ve written about the channel before and championed them as the only network that at least tries something new and something different. We’ve waxed nostalgia over the shows we know and love and how those shows just might not have existed if not for FOX.

With the fall season now kicked into high gear, we at Hey Star Trek! like so many others tremble in fear while the pillars that support our weekly television habits shake.

hey star trek thachoo sexy beast

A long time ago, a channel called UPN acquired Buffy the Vampire Slayer from the WB. The fledgling, United Paramount Network was looking for properties to widen their dynamic.

Later, UPN and the WB merged and formed this new thing called CW.

buffy the vampire slayer versus twilight versus the vampire diaries

CW just had its most successful night ever with a new thing called The Vampire Diaries. It’s put together by Kevin Williamson and it’s based on books that aren’t “Twilight.” The “Twilight Phenomenon” rips through bookshelves, movie theaters, and now television.

Strange to think that now Vampires are the way to go when it used to be the Slaying of Vampires that got us to tune in so many nights ago. Everything that’s old is new again, it seems. Or is it?

Joss Whedon has a new show out. He’s the gentlemen responsible for TV’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel,” and “Firefly.” Not surprisingly, it deals with sci-fi. Not surprisingly, it’s being shown on Friday nights on Fox.

Surprisingly, a lot of his fans aren’t watching. I can’t figure out why.

Many of my die-hard Buffy fan friends can’t get into it –hell though, they couldn’t get into Buffy season six either (my favorite year). I’ve been cornered on more than one occasion to justify my positive feelings for the show, so I’m gonna make all of my arguments here.

What’s really awesome about this timing is that I’ve just finished watching Dollhouse’s seventh episode and, strangely enough, it was a Star Trek episode.
