I am not an Emmy watcher. I just don’t watch the shows that are up for awards — more SciFi on my TIVO. But i did watch last night because I knew that there was going to be something from Dr. Horrible. Very Funny.
Maybe one day there will be more
SaD!!!!!!!! I am guessing there was a copyright violation
ok I guess you can see it here for now
Yup, that was one of y christmas presents. I actually haven’t sat down and watched the show again. But I have watched lots of the commentary/special features. Scince that is why I wanted the dvd, I’m happy. I hadn’t realized that there were going to be some of the applicants for the Evil League of Evil on the DVD — fun. Usually I am not a big fan of commentaries, but this is Joss. I enjoied most of it way more than I expected. I have no idea if there are any easter eggs, I haven’t looked.
Dr. Horrible, the DVD- highly recommended
Just in case you didn’t know,WhedonTube now exists. Yes, it has DR. Horrible on it, plus some other stuff that is less family friendly ( though DR. Horrible isn’t for the youngest members ). Not sure who is doing it or why or how long it will be there, but there is another place to see DR. Horrible. I just want the DVD…
Thank You Joss
Link good ’til Sunday then you have to buy it
which I will
Spoilers in the comment section
there are somethings that couldn’t have happened on network tv
No, not talking about the 2nd Act. More about the behind the scenes stuff. And to say that, really this is all the web 2.0 stuff I was reading/learning about that got me started on this blog. In order to promote Dr. Horrible, Joss Wedon used the power of the internet. There is a MYSpace page, a Facebook page, stuff on digg, and twitter was used to to keep people aware of what was going on. This led to a fan page being created ,plus countless number of individual blogs that kept people infomed of the newest developments. So what were the results? People around the world trying to get on the site, the number one slot on the iTunes tv show download , and a crash. From the article:
Whedon’s awareness of the Internet’s prevailing mood also played into his decision to make “Dr. Horrible” completely free—and free of advertising—for the entirety of its first week. But really? You’ve got a show that even with zero paid promotion has generated enough buzz to crash servers during the first hours it was available, and you don’t want use all that heat to mint some Whedon Dollars?
“Some brows have furrowed at the idea of putting it out for free,” Whedon said. “But that was part of our mission statement from the first: to create an Internet event for the fans (and others) to enjoy because we enjoyed it so much.”
Still, even if he takes a small hit in the short term, Whedon said that with merchandising, iTunes sales, and DVDs, he expects that Dr. Horrible “will go into the black within the first year.”
Tv’s changing. VCRs, TIVO, instant DVDs at the end of the television season, and the downloading of television shows off the Internet. It is truely exciting when the professionals get involved.
