"Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog" Coming This Tuesday!

We've had the little widget up here since early last week, but now we're featuring the nice new multi-featured one (on the right hand side of our page), and it's time to seriously start the countdown to writer-director-producer Joss Whedon's clever three-part original internet musical which premieres this Tuesday, July 15th. You all know and love Joss' creations, I'm sure -- Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, the upcoming and highly anticipated Dollhouse -- and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, which was created by Whedon during the long writers strike, looks to be equally as entertaining.

A Whedon-described "supervillain musical," Dr. Horrible stars Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Desperate Housewives), Felicia Day (Buffy, web series The Guild) and Flaming Nose special favorite Simon Helberg from The Big Bang Theory. You know it's got to be a lot of fun, and what's possibly most fascinating about it is that it will be unveiled sequentially on three days -- Act 1 on Tuesday 7/15, Act 2 on Thursday 7/17, and Act 3 on Saturday 7/19 -- and all three acts will remain up until midnight on Sunday July 20th, when Dr. Horrible will be taken down to await further Whedon-wrought distribution plans.

The Flaming Nose doesn't want you to miss this! We'll keep nagging you, and as a visual reminder here's the Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog trailer which is now featured on the Dr. Horrible website, too. And there's a more elaborate Dr. Horrible website, too -- not sure which is the *official official site, but this is the official fan site, anyway. Enjoy!

Just watched Act 1 and it was great! I always loved Joss Wedon's style and this reminds me so much of the musical Buffy episode "Once More with Feeling" which I thought was so good. Of course Natham Fillion and Neil Patrick Harris are wonderful. Can't wait for the rest.
