I didn't say the universe was inconsistent, and I don't think it is. I think there are some inconsistencies, which is different. What I said was that he's far more focused on the emotional issues. Joss cares that the universe is good enough to carry the drama and that's all. I've watched the show and, especially when seeing it in the proper order, the inconsistencies are simply not that big an issue, although I can only speak for myself, of course. I've been reading British threads now that the show is airing over there, though, and there's very little negative comment about the sci-fi western elements or inconsistencies therein because Serenity set it up so well.

As for Joss knowing nothing about cows and horses, what did he know about demons, personally speaking? Did all the great western directors have a personal familiarity with the West? Were they all writing out of what they knew? Westerns are not one thing. They're a mixture. A director can emphasize anything they want within the form, from idividualism to community, from the building of a new world to the destruction of ancient cultures. YWMV
