Dr. Horrible

Yesterday, my youngest son turned me on to this webisode of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.  

Apparently, Joss Whedon (and family, judging by the plethora of Whedons in the credits) put this together during the writer’s strike.  It’s a little slow at the start, but once Neil Patrick Harris starts singing, it really picks up.  I’m not a die-hard Joss Whedon fan, ’cause I think his work is terribly uneven, but he does make a habit of trying new things, so I’m always willing to give his new stuff a fair shake.  Besides, it’s innovative people in the industry like Whedon that will shape the future of entertainment.  (Remember: fresh, new and innovative aren’t always strictly correct — it’s the ones who popularize them that get credited with being the first!)

I thought this new approach worked, despite the rather cliched ending.
