Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

Further illustrating the fact that I am a raving dork of the highest order, I am so very excited about this:

Teaser from Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog on Vimeo.

As I understand it, Joss Whedon (of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame), in response to the recent writers’ strike in Hollywood, decided to look for a way to sort of circumvent the system and produce something of professionalish quality without being bound by the rules set up by a system that no longer works. Or something like that. Thus, an Internet Miniseries!

Act 1 goes live on Tuesday, July 15th.

Act 2 joins the party two days later, on Thursday, July 17th.

Act 3 – the denouement – rears its head on Saturday, July 19th.

They will remain live through midnight on Sunday, July 20th, and then it’s bye-bye. Or buy-buy, as they will soon after become downloadable for a modest fee, followed by release on a DVD chock full of extras.

Remembering the brilliance of Whedon’s musical episode of BuffyOnce More With Feeling… I expect that Dr. Horrible will be phenomenal. Besides, look at the trailer. It stars Neil Patrick Harris, and he is comedic genius!

Yeah. Dorkiness confirmed and documented.

(But I still can’t wait to watch it!)
