Joss Whedon has put his latest web movie project online. It's available for a limited time for free via streaming
at Dr Horrible's sing-along blog
I thought that since it's a musical, people here might be interested.

Yeah, Dr. Horrible is the best piece of entertainment I've seen in a long time. Absolutely brilliant. Been a Whedon fan since the first season of Buffy (which perfectly coincided with my last year of high school), but I ignored Neil Patrick Harris until I saw this... He's truly a perfect fit for the role, not to mention an immensely talented actor - and singer for that matter.

The dialogue and lyrics are at their usual Whedonesque (despite family/co-writers), but still shows Whedon has matured as a writer over the years. Comparing e.g. to the Buffy musical episode, which had a longer prep time, a more orchestral-focused score and a much higher budget, Dr. Horrible seems more... honest and real.

Oh, and it's up for free (now with an ad in between the acts) again.

Go watch! You won't regret it biggrin.gif

Of course you should! cool.gif And it's good to see you too smile.gif

Oh, there's a trailer here (I believe that's an official YouTube post):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXI3obHfwgU...ature=rec-fresh

But, of course, the entire thing can be viewed for free on the site (http://www.drhorrible.com) - at the moment. And it may be downloaded from the iTunes store in better quality (the video on the site is quite good, though) for a few (like 4 for all three acts) bucks.

The iTunes download is U.S. only at the moment, though. I believe they're working on making it available in the international stores, but it seems the iTunes store is a rather slow beast to work with...
