Doctor Horrible is the latest project from Joss Whedon. Made without backing from a studio and released online.
When I try and view it I get the message 'This Video is not available at this site' message - I think that hulu.com, the video hosting service, have restricted it to US subscribers only, at least that's what I thought until I saw that people all over the world have been commenting on how great it is.
Hang on a cotton picking second.... I wonder..... if... No... it can't be that simple....?
Fantastically, I've just worked it out - it was something to do with Firefox. It opened in the dreaded MSIE (browser conflicts are pretty rare these days, previously it would've been the first thing I'd have checked).
Nice opening - the evil laugh - and I want one of those big chairs at the end of Act 2.
It's really good stuff, musically very similar to a certain well known episode of Buffy (of course) - thoroughly enjoyed it.
Doctor Horrible, played by Neil Patrick Harris was the lead in Doogie Howser MD. Nathan Fillion appeared as a bad guy in Buffy, has 'Mal' in Firefly and Serenity, and as one of the leads in the ill-fated 'Drive'.
Doctor Horrible is free to watch online for a few days, and then it's gone - having built the hype it'll then re-emerge on DVD and itunes.
