Re: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along blog

Great episode. This definitely sold me on NPH, whom I've never really taken much of an interest in. Now, I'd love to see him in a whedon show, he's perfect.

The ending was good but not as strong as the first two parts though I certainly didn't see the ending coming. I also didn't understand why Captain Hammer acted the way he did after the gun blew up......also, I agree with others, Captain Hammer's hero song went on a verse too long and Penny should have had more to do in the last act.

Beyond that, loved it.

Favorite Songs:

1. On the Rise
2. Stop
3. Brand New Day

I'd rank this just a notch below Once more with Feeling and Hush but on par with most of the good Buffy episodes.

^ Really, I thought it trumped Once More With Feeling, musically at least. It seemed Whedon's musical writing has matured significantly. My only musical criticism was sometimes the counterpoint was overused to the point that you couldn't hear what both were saying.

THE funniest moment was, for me, after Hammer was unfrozen, beats Horrible to the ground, and THEN sings the last note of the song he'd started about five minutes earlier.

Hysterical.

Seen as no one commented on it the first time, I feel this needs posting again

While flipping Dr. Horrible off for the end of it. That was the icing on the hilarity cake.

I love, loved Dr. Horrible. Who here besides me thinks Neil Patrick Harris would have made a very interesting Spike on Buffy?

After watching this episode I'm convinved Neal was born to star in a Whedon show. I sincerley hope he gets the opportunity. As for him being a good Spike, yeah, I could see that though I think Marsters did an outstanding job as it was.

Re: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along blog

I just find it insane to look at Felicia and Nathan and see how huge they are... of course Nathan looks like he's all muscle and barrel chested like a circus strongman... And Felicia who has a worse English accent than even Madonna ain't no tiny child any more screeching about "Biscuits!" . Buffy season seven was SOOOOOO long ago.

Re: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along blog

I saw the Dr. Horrible--The Early Years bit...it was cute, the kid did a great job at getting all the Whedonisms correct. I loved it when he looks through the telescope at Captain Hammer's fort and sees the Tal Majal!! The song wasn't that great though.

Hmm, could be her but can't say I'm overly convinced

Looking at the evidence, its tough to tell but I think that it is SMG.

Yeah I saw that on Whedon.net and it looks interesting...it does resemble Sarah somewhat. I wonder if that will be pointed out on the DVD?
