I had heard about Dr. Horrible for a while. I wasn’t sure what to make of it. I mean, it’s called Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. It’s a musical? A musical blog? It was produced just for the web? NPH is the star, he can sing? Yes, those are all in fact true.
It was created by Joss Whedon. He did Buffy and, more importantly, Firefly. Also starring in Dr. Horrible is Nathan Fillion, who was the star in Firefly.
I got around to watching it this week and its good. Actually good. Not just good for something made for the web. A network should clear some space to show this one night. The networks don’t do enough specials, everything has to be a series. I would be on board for a movie length Sing-Along Blog. The first song has been stuck in my head for a few days. I’m hoping the soundtrack gets released so I can pick up that track.
It’s available to buy on iTunes for $5 but its free to watch on Hulu …
