Are You Watching?


Shame on me for not posting this sooner...

If they haven't already done so (on second thought, even if they have), I decree that all my subjects hie themselves posthaste to www.drhorrible.com to watch the first 2 installments of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Hieing to www.drhorrible.net is also acceptable, as long as the aforementioned show is watched. So let it be written, so let it be done.

I'm not going to try to describe this tasty, free (until Sunday) online treat in any detail... After all, it shouldn't be necessary if you all make with the hieing like I asked. But if you need some persuasion, here's my best effort:

  • Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog was written, directed, and produced by one of my personal heroes, Joss Whedon (with a little help from his friends, including his brothers). If nothing else, consider this a much-needed "taste of Whedon" to tide us over until Dollhouse finally premieres (assuming that Fox doesn't manage to muck it up like they did Firefly... but that's a tirade for another day).
  • As the "Sing-Along" part of the title indicates, this is indeed a musical production. In fact, this is the first Whedon musical since the critically acclaimed and much-loved Buffy episode Once More With Feeling all the way back in 2001. Just as with that project, Joss was heavily involved in creating the music for Dr. Horrible. (Music by Joss Whedon and Jed Whedon. Lyrics by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen.) So, it has to be good!
  • Q: How often do you get to see Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion sing, dance (a little), chew the scenery (not literally... at least not yet) & generally ham it up onscreen? A: Not nearly often enough. Even if they did it three times a day, it wouldn't be often enough. As I have always said, you can never have too much NPH.
So, what are you waiting for? GO HIE!
