Re: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along blog

As has been said the musical style is obviouly similar to Once More, With Feeling, which kind of makes me sad Angel & Firefly couldn't have continued.
How awesome would musical episodes of those have been?



So what would your favourite song be in the whole 3-parts?

Don't know the names of the songs, but my Top 3 would be-
3. "The Nightmare's Real (pt.3)
2. "With My Freeze Ray" (pt.1)
1. "Brand New Day" (pt.2)

My personal faves:
1. "On the Rise"
2. "Freeze-Ray"
3. "Brand New Day"

I really didn't think any of the songs in Act III were all that memorable.

Re: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along blog

Wikipedia has a track listing of all the songs included in the Sing Along...I haven't checked the entry since act ii has been posted but I'm sure its been updated long since act iii was posted. Technobuilder summed things up perfectly...if you go back and watch act I pretty much what happened and was said in that act happened in the third act.

Okay just checked the wiki article and the songs have been removed...

I so want the DVD now as the article reports that there will be a feature on the DVD called Commentary--The Musical with new songs by the cast!!! Awesome.

I think it'd be awesome if the Bad Horse Chorus got a cameo in Dollhouse. Maybe in a karaoke scene or something.

An Angel musical would of been awesome, but I don't think a Firefly musical would of worked that well, the show is too grounded for something like that.

Re: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along blog

Doing a Firefly episode as a musical wouldn't have worked. But there's no reason the crew couldn't have stopped off on the Planet Of The Karaoke Bars and decided to trade their voices for "free" money.

Or the musical might have been a part of and elaborate con job or or maybe just maybe. They just needed the money.

Re: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along blog

What about the Jayne Song? That was musical enough...an Angel musical would have been interesting but then we got the puppet episode instead!

Agreed on all counts. And yeah, the Karaoke ep of Firefly would have been a barnstormer.

I concur.

Though, "The Bad Horse Chorus" isn't the best name for them.

How about...

"The Thoroughbreds Of Sin"

eh? eh?

Errm does anyone else not see the 'play' links any more? and it now says 'exclusively on iTunes' on the iTunes button.
And the iTunes version isn't available in Britain...

It was only available for free until midnight Sunday. Apparently they're working on international release on iTunes, and a DVD should be coming out sooner or later.

Re: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along blog

The plan was that the free links would come down last night at midnight (EST). As for why its not on the U.K. iTunes, you may just have to be patient. I'd hope that they'll have them up for everyone or at the very least you'll have to wait for the DVD.
