Dr.Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog - 28th August 2010

I love this DVD. I must've watched it a whole bunch of times since I bought it. It doesn't feel like anything else I have ever seen really, except of course The Buffy Musical and, although they are different genres, Rocky Horror Picture Show.
There honestly isn't a bad word to say about this internet mini series (except, of course, that there isn't enough of it - I could watch a hundred more) everything about it is wonderful. It just feels so good that something like this exists. 
As you know, from the previous Dollhouse review, I am a Joss Whedon fan and I think this is some of the cleverest, funniest stuff he's ever done. The acting, while knowingly over-the-top in some cases, is fantastic and they all have singing voices that are great to listen to and not poppy or whiny at all. For something which was made for relatively little the whole thing looks great and suitably comic book. As for the plot and characters, that they manage to pack so much into three 15 minute episodes is incredible and even with the overall goofy and knock-about nature of the thing, it is genuinely shocking and touching when the end comes around. It's funny that the only real innocent and do-gooder is punished and the egotistical Hammer and megalomaniacal Dr.Horrible get to live and yet you still go with it. The songs are also tremendously catchy and memorable without ever becoming annoying, like, for example, the Timewarp. 
On the DVD as well as an informative and fun making of you also get a musical commentary which contains songs and humour almost as great as the film itself. It's a genuine treat and ensures that this DVD never gets old.
