Oh, okay. Never mind, then, I don't usually watch those.

They didn't have much of a choice. The deal was between Fox and Dushku; Eliza's the one who brought Joss in to run her show. There was much hand-wringing about "Why is he going back to Fox?" But the deal already existed, with Fox as an essential element.

To me that was the point. Back then I had this theory about how the show was Joss's indictment of capitalism, etc., and her being a self-justifying stooge played into that theory.

Ah, you were the ideal target audience for the first few episodes, then... I'll be excited to tell them about you over on the Whedon site I go to. We thought you were a myth.
