Dr Horrible

July 14, 2008 at 11:03 pm (fun, movies, music, tv, web 2.0) (, , , , , , )

I told you I was into superheroes. Well, supervillians , too. I am a little slow to the party , but not too late. Joss Wedon, creator of Buffy, Angel, and Firefly, has found something new to do. Presenting Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog. Looks like he was bored during the writer’s strike, ( well there is a bit more to it than that), and wrote something that will be seen first on the Internet. The first Act went up today at midnight eastern.

Here’s a little more about it :

Coming soon to a computer near you… The story of a low-rent super-villain, the hero who keeps beating him up, and the cute girl from the laundromat he’s too shy to talk to. Featuring Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible, Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer, Felicia Day as Penny and a cast of dozens. Written by Joss Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, Jed Whedon, and Zack Whedon. Directed by Joss Whedon. Produced by David Burns, Michael Boretz, and Joss Whedon. Music by Joss Whedon and Jed Whedon. Lyrics by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen. Score and Orchestration by Jed Whedon.

Just in case you were wondering,Yes , Nathan Fillion can sing.

First act , less than 15 minutes long. Quite clever and good for a laugh.

    Well, I was forced to buy it on iTunes. Patience is not a virtue I have.

    This is a complete rip-off of Dr. Steel. http://www.doctorsteel.com

    Even the name is stolen from Dr. Steel’s first compilation album “Dr. Steel’s Read-A-Long” album.

    This isn’t funny and the music is even less inspired. If you want to see something good, check out the real deal.

    Well, i went through Dr. Steel’s website. For a man that thinks we need more fun – he can go on and on and on …. about the negative things in life. And hiding behind insanity….

    Toy Soldier SubZ reporting and this.. this sickens me. To degrade and attempt to destroy the good doctors image like this. How dare you attempt to harm the good doctors name. Doctor Steel is a good man, and he deserves much much more respect than this horrid “Dr. Horrible” theft.

    The true site, the original, the genius, the man who deserves the respect. The music is irritating, the script are poorly written

    We are Dr.Steel’s Army of Toy Soldiers and we will not stand for our Good Doctor’s Efforts to be ripped off by some wannabe madman.

    (robots and the whole Toy thing)

    Well, there seems to be a battle right now as to wether or not Dr.Steel is getting ripped off here.

    I’ve come to some conclusions –

    They are both supervillians. They are both musical.

    Dr. Steel is insane. Dr Horrible, just your basic science nerd that wants to rule the world

    Dr. Steel wants more fun and Dr Horrible is more fun

    and of course, Dr. Horrible is a coherent story.

    I think the initial reaction of Dr. Steel fans was of an over-zealous nature, feeling the pinch of ‘too close for comfort’ when a big-named producer makes a show that in many ways does mirror Dr. Steel’s. That is not to say that Joss Whedon ripped him off, most of the elements are nothing new, but to put them all together in a similar fashion does raise the eyebrows.
    But that’s neither here nor there. I doubt Joss is a theif.
    Really now, there’s room enough on this big old planet of ours to enjoy BOTH mad scientists, and I figure there will be a lot of cross-over fans who love both, or who personally prefer one over the other.
    That’s human nature – to have a preference.
    So while hasty words and mis-applied zeal may have been the initial reaction, I think most everyone realizes that there is no need for any sort of ‘fan-war’ over this. Growing pains, and nothing more.
    Be that as it may, Dr. Steel will always be my first love – … Mind Control Cookies… mmmmmmm..
