Second Chance!

July 31, 2008

This just in via WIRED magazine—Dr. Horrible is back online, streaming for free…for now.

If you missed it earlier this month, I highly recommend checking it out. Very silly, touching, creative, and surprising. I’d love to hear what you think of it, especially the ending…

‏Watch it at for optimal viewing (including “Full screen” and “Lower lights” options found if you scroll over to the right of the video screen).

FYI – altogether it is about 45 minutes long; the three acts are divided by a couple of ads.

    First reaction: This is weird. Then…this is pretty funny. Then…wished there were more.
    We were delightfully surprised how it reached beyond just goofy characters and a comic-book plot. It actually has some depth. But most importantly, I feel inspired to cut into song during the coarse of my day.

    My sentiments exactly! I grew to love the quirky show! And, yes, one or two of the numbers may have slipped into my repertoire, presented daily for my little audience of one…

    Along the comic book vibe….have you read Michael Chabon’s “Adventures of Kavalier and Clay,” or just the one about Alaska? I can’t remember if you recommended this particular book or just this author. I am a hundred pages into it and I’m quite hooked.

    yes, I have read Kavalier and Clay and did recommend it. Very good, epic in scope. Chabon is one of my favorites. It’s essentially a history of the early comic book industry told in story form. The two main characters a very much based on the guys who created Superman. And as a history major you must be enjoying all the “actual” early 20th century history that these fictional characters encounter. And the Alaska book, Yiddish Policeman’s Union is very good too.
