Terrible English accent. Always looked petrified. She was about a foot shorter too.

Man I remember that episode now...it brings back memories. So there is a Buffy connection after all! I want a soundtrack as much as the DVD as well. I know you can download one or Joss is preparing one for Itunes but not for retailers, at least not yet.

Niel Patrick Harris Works with Allyson Hanigan on How I met Your Mother.

There would be social occasions where all their presences would overlap, I'd assume.

I don't care for the "melodies" very much at all, but the lyrics are great.

The music is much too rock recitative for me and, like Rent, becomes lost in its sameness after awhile as an entire score. Individual songs are great in small doses, but too many weaken the music.

You're probably thinking of Molly or Annabelle, who both had the bad English accents. Thankfully they both came to gruesome ends.
Tony Head should have given them a lesson or two!


Vi/Felcia Day spoke in her normal voice, and appeared in 6 episodes through Season 7

Not just one - Nathan played Caleb in the final season of Buffy, and the newscasters are David Fury and Marti Noxon, who not only were producers on the show, but also appeared in OMWF (David as "Mustard Man" and Marti as "Parking Ticket Woman" ("Hey, I'm not wearing underwear ..." )).

^ And as I mentioned earlier, Buffy writers Doug Petrie and Drew Goddard were on the Evil League. Petrie as Professor Normal, and Goddard as Fake Thomas Jefferson

Not sure what you mean by that last sentence - isn't a musical, by definition, a collection of individual songs? I don't necessarily mean Joss could or should write the score, but it's not unusual to see a musical where the score and the songs are written by different people, separately or cooperatively (Tarzan, for example, where Phil Collins wrote the songs and Mark Mancina wrote the score).

As for the songs in Dr. Horrible, I liked them all, to varying degrees, with Brand New Day and On the Rise probably being my favorites; I also like the depth of the finalé, and found myself replaying that song many times last night at home.

Not everything needs a sequel, even if we can imagine myriad ways to continue the story.

Actually if it were possible I wouldn't mind a Evil League of Evil Sing A Long Blog Featuring Dr. Horrible!! A web comic or an actually comic would be fantastic as well.

I waited too long for the stream... is the price of the iTunes download going to come down at some point? I feel kind of exploited having to pay 2 bucks for each act...
