  • Joss's Dr Horrible Sing-A-Long

    So I'd almost forgotten about this and it's available to watch on July 15th and again on the 17th and 19th for free at:-

    http://www.drhorrible.com/

    There's a trailer up on the site, and I have to say that I missed hearing Joss's words spoken out loud. This looks great fun, and has Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day (Vi from Buffy, in case you were wondering) in it too.

    Here's a link to the information I got about it

    http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/tv/2008/...e_phrases.html

    It would make Joss's day if there were thousands and thousands watching it, give him a bit of validation after the bad luck he's had with Firefly, so who on here's gonna watch it?

    I want to watch it!! I missed the July 15th date...

    I went to the site - but all that's up is the trailer! How do you get to see the actual vid? Do they show it on the site but only on those dates?

    Any other information??

      Um unless I've overslept for a couple of days you've not missed the date cos it hasn't arrived yet. Today's the 11th so the first act will be shown on Monday. (Yeah I was looking at June when I thought it was on Sunday, DOH!)

      The second act will be shown on Thurs, and the third act will be shown next Saturday. All three acts will be on site to watch for 48 hrs and on Sunday they'll be taken down.

      I didn't realise there was a thread already running about this, and it's got a bit more information there:-

        Sorry ciderdrinker - I have returned from my trip in the future - I thought I read it as July 5th. Good! I haven't missed it! And thank you for responding!!

          I've been telling my friends about this for months. It's funny because people respond to the phrase "Dr. Horrible" in very different ways. Some think it's amazing and some are total wet blankets about it. It shares that with Buffy for sure. (Does anyone else use that reaction to determine whether or not to become friends with someone?)

          Spread the word! It's on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and others.

            See now I'm the opposite... "Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long" intrigues me! But I understand what you mean. Kinda like going to a Dr. named Klutz.

                Thanks KoC!!

                Just buzzed over!! it's wonderful!! Glad they showed it early - I was afraid with everyone on the site tomorrow it might slow things down.

                The cast is great! It's the first time I've ever seen Nathan sing - he's not half bad! And Felicia has a lovely voice!

                Did Joss make a cameo?? Is he one of the singing cowboys? Maybe the one on the right?

                  Great! Just Great!!! It's only available in the US. I just can't believe this, I was soo excited, and now will have to wait to pay for it. I don't mind paying for it, but I wanted to support the effort by being part of the "event" and now I can't

                  EDIT: I swung over to Whedonesque and there was a comment from some Aussie dude who suggested ths:-

                  Download this thingumybob. Install it and the streaming works! I don't know how it works but it does and it's genius!

                  EDIT 2:

                  I've seen it now and I LOVED it!

                  Ah Joss, you make my day!

                    I actually have this already - spoilered for boring splainy:

                    Spoiler:
                    It's basically a network creator - it takes your computer and makes it into its own network, and by doing so changes your ip address, which confuses hulu and sometimes allows you to see US videos. It doesn't work all the time, and soemtmies it makes your internet speed incredibly slow, and I have no idea whatsoever WHY that is, but that's the basic gist.

                      However it works - it did for me, so for that I'm extremely grateful. I turned it off once I'd watched it, so dunno about the speed thing.

                          I suppose it's possible if people are tech savvy and can work out how to do that. The way I see it, is Joss wanted to do something for the internet that could only be seen by those that subscribe/pay or whatever to prove that "Made for the Internet" is a viable option.

                          Putting it on youtube, would be the same as putting on an ep of a tv show on youtube - violates copyright etc, I'd imagine, and would negate the whole point - but then I'm sure that Joss realises that thats a risk - he mentions in the "Plan" that he would rather people pay for the download so that he can pay the crew.

                                  that it ends with the word balls!!!! Also, the singing was excellent, and I'm enjoying the anti-hero protagonist thingie. Though it's definitely not what I was expecting...

                                    I must have the slowest internet ever.. been trying to watch the whole thing all day, but either it crashes or I have to go out, then I get home again and have to start all over Trying to watch it now... seems like it plays smoothly if i pause it, and leave it for a while.. Bleh, anyway so far my favourite bit is when Neil winks 'anyday' - he's such sweetie.

                                        I hate to be the first negative reply but wasn't the filming more talking faces and less of Joss's normal filming style. There were no long extended takes or any of the other shots he is known for. It just seems a bit more average to me. The singing was good though.
