Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog Is Awesome, and Now Working Just Fine

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog Is Awesome, and Now Working Just Fine


I would have posted this yesterday when the first act of Joss Whedon's online musical series was available online except for the fact that it wasn't actually available for most of the day. All the fans (like me) who were lured in by the funny preview for the series were trying to view the first webisode, and too many curious eyes caused the site to slow to a halt.

Now it's working fine and it is my pleasure to announce that Act I of this funny, bizarre musical starring Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion is awesome. It's adorable and sweet and tons of fun to watch. The first few minutes of Dr. Horrible just talking to camera is a little slow, but once you get through that, there's a super-cute little musical number/love song set in a laundromat and the rest flows along nicely from there.

The only thing I'm not getting is why it's called "sing-along" when there's no real way to sing along (unless you watch a few times, I guess!). Tell me your thoughts below after watching the first act here. Enjoy!

Oh no, it's over :(. "I hate the homeless... ness that plagues this city!" Nathan Fillion is so freaking awesome. I don't know what to think of the ending... kind of depressing.

Loved it! Act II is soooooo good. Loved the PhD in Horribleness, too. But my fave part was The speech in the laundry room: The hammer is my penis!!!!!!!

Act II is up and its far superior to Act I, although, yes, the laundry mat song about stopping the world is wonderful. Joss Whedon once again proves himself to be a consummate musical writer. I now wonder where I can get a PhD in horribleness . . .

Balls! So amazingly creative and just all 'round fantastic...NPH is made for the Whedonverse...and I'm hoping he finds something else to work with Joss on (if they can add Nathan again too...BONUS!) I had extremely high expectations for this...but as with all Whedon projects, it managed to surpass them by a mile. Music, lyrics, sets, costumes, dialogue, acting...sooo good. I've watched it more times than I'm willing to admit...but enough that it really has become a "sing-along" for me ;)

Fan-freaking-tastic! I loved it! I already know I'd buy it when it's out on DVD. "I'm working with a vocal coach." I just love NPH more and more. "Balls!"

Aw it's so charming and cute and wonderful. Can't wait for parts 2 and 3. I love that the hero is a huge tool, and the villain is the more likable one. "The world is a mess, and I just need to rule it!"

It was very cute! NPH has become one of my favorite actors since seeing him as Barney on How I Met Your Mother, and Nathan Fillion is, of course, always awesome. Bought the Season Pass on iTunes; can't wait for the next two parts!
