Tune In Tuesday: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

For those of you who don't know, I basically worship at a shrine of Joss Whedon. It's more of a metaphorical shrine than a physical one, because a physical one would be highly creepy. Anyway, the take-away here is that I think Whedon is brilliant and awesome and witty and incredible.

And in addition to writing very on-the-nose and intelligent dialogue for TV/film, he also sometimes writes music. And then employs his actor-friends to sing it.

Which brings us to Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, starring Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, and Felicia Day. It's GREAT. Here are some songs from it.

"Freeze Ray," Neil Patrick Harris

"A Man's Gotta Do," Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, Felicia Day

"My Eyes," Neil Patrick Harris and Felicia Day

"So They Say," Ensemble Cast

It's pretty much one of my favorite things ever. If you've never seen it, it's only 45 minutes, and it is streaming on Netflix. Or you could buy it on Amazon/iTunes. And you should. Because it's worth it.

  1. I've heard so much about Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along, I really need to check it out. If the film's as funny as these songs, it's definitely going on the Netflix list. :) Thank you for sharing!

  2. Can we be best friends now? I adore Joss Whedon (though I have to admit I still have to watch Dollhouse and Dr. Horrible). But I've seen (and loved) Firefly, Angel, and Buffy. My gender issues in pop culture class actually watched the Buffy episode "Hush" this morning and had a fantastic discussion following it! I really need to finish watching the rest of Whedon's work! He's a genius!

  3. YES to this post! I LOVED "Dr. Horrible," and all the songs you mentioned are great. I also quite like the "Bad Horse" songs. :)

  4. PERFECT! Oh my word, I LOVE Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog! I'm pretty sure I drove people crazy making them watch it... but it needs to be seen, I tell you! lol Great pick, thanks for sharing!

    My Tune in Tuesday pick!

  5. Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is one of the best things I've ever seen. I watched it again after seeing your post - and it's still one of the best things ever. <3

  6. Oh my god I LOVE Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog!! I especially like Freeze Ray, because it's so cute :).

  7. I love Dr. Horrible. Wait, everyone else already said that. I love showing this to people who are skeptical but willing and watching them get pulled in by the end of Act 1. Irresistible.
