In case you missed all the links in my sidebar and my post on it, the new Joss Whedon project “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” just went live. This internet project is a superhero-type musical comedy lovestory told from the wannabe-super-villian point-of-view.
And as if that isn’t enough, it stars Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible (aka wannabe-super-villian), Nathan Fillion as Capt. Hammer (aka the super-hero) and Felicia Day (aka the lovestory part of this triangle).
Just watched part one online at DrHorrible.com and it was definitely worth the wait. As a classically trained vocalist, I was suprised at how good the singing was – even Nathan, who definitely sings better than he dances.
Oh, don’t look at me like that…you know it’s true. Proof:
Now I just have to wait some more. Part two goes live Thursday (July 17) and part three goes live Saturday (July 19). The whole thing will only be online until Sunday, then you have to wait for the DVD (with bonus stuff up the wahoo, according to Whedon). Or you can buy it online at iTunes, too. I think I’ll wait for the DVD, though.
Did you see it? What did you think?
