Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

I just watched all three parts of Joss Whedon's new musical. It's good. I don't like musicals, but I think Whedon is particularly adept at using music to convey emotion and gravitas in a way that is endearingly self-conscious and hammy. Watching this it seems the superhero genre lends itself well to the format — after all, superheroes themselves are larger than life.

By the time you read this, however, it will probably be no longer available. You see, it comes down after today. It will be sold on DVD at some point in the future from what I understand.

... better late than never? Oh never mind.

Now we're really having a chess, boxing, speed-quarters match for your use of the word "Gravitas" in a sentence. :P

I didn't like the end... I felt like it didn't fit the first two episodes. Eps 1&2 were funny, snarky and endearing. Ep 3 started that way, but then became serious and sad.
However, I do now have a serious geek crush on Neil Patrick Harris.
