Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is a 40 minute, 3 part musical produced for the internet, telling the story of a low-rent supervillain [Neil Patrick Harris How I Met Your Mother], the hero [Nathan Fillion Firefly/Serenity, Desperate Housewives] who keeps beating him up, and the cute girl [Felicia Day Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Guild] from the laundromat he’s too shy to talk to. The movie was written by Joss Whedon [Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Toy Story] and his brothers Zack Whedon, Jed Whedon and Jed’s fiancée, Maruissa Tancharoen.
The writing team penned the musical during the WGA Writer’s Strike (they weren’t writing for a studio)
Part 1 - Tuesday July 15
Part 2 - Thursday July 17
Part 3 - Saturday July 19
These episodes will “air” online only until July 20. Following that they will be made available for download at a “nominal fee” and in the near future available to buy on a very special DVD “with the finest and bravest extras in all the land”.

haha, but that’s the beauty of this! There’s no studio to cancel it - that’s the whole point - to cut out the studio and have the creators providing stuff directly to the viewers… I really hope this works out - it really could chage the future direction of entertainment and provide the viewers with more choice about what they want instead of having to just take what they’re given.
spread the word far and wide - tell everyone you know about it…
unfortunately, it’s not available to those outside the USA right now but I’m hoping something will be done about that while it’s still online for free (until the 20th) - otherwise I’ll just have to wait for the DVD - which is going to be awesome anyway - lots of unique extras - including I think a musical commentary!
Thanks for the thread, I came here immediately after watching. It took some work, since I’m in Canada, but it can be done my international friends.
That was most incredible. Of course, I could just have my Whedon coloured glasses on - you know, the ones where everything Joss does is shiny and wonderful. I cannot wait for the next part, and look forward to paying to download when the time comes. My only complaint? Not enough Fillion. Loved Neil though - I’m happy to welcome him to the fan-obsessed whedonverse.
Hmmm…Aleq…are you aware of the Firefly outtakes reel? The one where we can see an absolutely beautiful shot of Mr. Fillion’s glorious glutei? If you haven’t, google /Fillion naked/ (not at work!)…absolutely the most beautiful butt I’ve ever seen!
