This might be my Joss Whedon Tipping Point
I have never truly been a fan of anything Joss Whedon put out, mostly because I just never got started on things, and by the time everyone was having their fanboygasms about the shows, they were well into their arcs or … off the air and not yet released on DVD. So I never got into Buffy, Angel or Firefly and I still ain’t seen Serenity. What I’ve heard about his new show doesn’t particularly interest me, nor was I impressed by his writing stints on various comic titles. Though I do admit to being impressed by him letting the Buffy/Angel comic books be official canon and continuity for the now off-the-air series.
Just about every site has been linking to Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog starring Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day (from that fantastic and surreal Cheetos commercial). It’s not really sing-along, unless you’ve watched it a million times to know the words, there ain’t no bouncing ball, but it’s very funny. Norman watched it through before me and he suggested that a line from this scene would be his new quote:

It’s in three acts, all online until midnight Sunday July 20, also available on iTunes right now. After it goes offline, it will be coming out as a DVD and there will be details about the DVD at Comic Con. One of these years I’m going to have to make it out there for that… and Pride, of course. 😉
