Price Peterson has listed for tv.com twenty-five favorite biggest, riskiest, and most original FOX experiments; Firefly (2002-2003) made the list, as well as Prison Break (2005-2009), Greg the Bunny (2002-2002), 24 (2001-2010) or Wonderfalls (2004-2004) to name a few.
The article includes a snippet on the tv shows listed and if it was a success or a failure; here's the comment on Summer Glau's space western :
The risk: The subject of Joss Whedon's most tragic mistreatment by a network, Firefly was a Western-influenced sci-fi serial aired out of order and then summarily disposed of. Still, though: What an odd show to greenlight in the first place.
Success or Failure? Failure (on Fox's part mostly)

i cant stomach the fox network, they have cancelled some great shows, and yet the rubbish they have got on at the moment. it just doesnt make sense they have tried terra nova, alcatraz, absolute dismal failures, touch, and fringe, which are a joke, how on earth fringe got five seasons i just dont understand. got me beat, best thing to do is just boycott fox at all cost. but everybodys different with tv viewing. but yes fox did treat firefly badly and its there fault at the end of the day.
