They didn't make the young blonde one the super duper martial artist - as per most of Joss Whedon's shows - so it was a nice change to the plan.
Umm... Joss Whedon's shows:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
: Lead was young blonde martial artist.
: No blondes in regular cast, except Mercedes McNab in secretarial role in final season. Only female regular specializing in fighting was blue/black-haired Illyria.
: Only blond was Alan Tudyk; young martial artist was brunette.
Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog
: Female lead was redhead, non-fighter.
: Included blonde Dichen Lachman, occasionally portrayed as fighter, but no more often than brunette Eliza Dushku.
Whedon's shows are a lot less uniform than people perceive them to be.
