I know I keep going on and on about Dr. Horrible, but I’m just so excited about a new Whedon project and Dollhouse is still in the future. First of all, here’s a link to the official myspace. But more importantly, the dates are here!!!! I’m so amazingly thrilled about this, I can’t stand it. The first part will air on Tuesday, July 15, the second part on Thursday, July 17, and the third part on Saturday, July 19. All three parts will remain up until Sunday, July 20. All to be viewed free! After that, Dr. Horrible will be available for download.
In honor of the dates being revealed, I’m going to repost some of what Joss had to say over at Whedonesque.
At last the time has come to reveal to you our Master Plan. BEWARE! Those with weak hearts should log off lest they be terrified by the twisted genius of our schemes! Also pregnant women and the elderly should consider reading only certain sentences. Do not mix with other blogs. Do not operate heavy machinery while reading this blog. You must be this tall to read. ‘Kay?
It is time for us to change the face of Show Business as we know it. You know the old adage, “It’s Show Business – not Show Friends”? Well now it’s Show Friends. We did that. To Show Business. To show Show Business we mean business. (Also, there are now other businesses like it.)
ONE WEEK ONLY! AN INTERNET MINISERIES EVENT!
“Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” will be streamed, LIVE (that part’s not true), FREE (sadly, that part is) right on Drhorrible.com, in mid-July. Specifically:
ACT ONE (Wheee!) will go up Tuesday July 15th.
ACT TWO (OMG!) will go up Thursday July 17th.
ACT THREE (Denouement!) will go up Saturday July 19th.
All acts will stay up until midnight Sunday July 20th. Then they will vanish into the night, like a phantom (but not THE Phantom – that’s still playing. Like, everywhere.)
(If you want to read the rest of the post, and I strongly suggest that you do, then head on over to Whedonesque with this link.)
So now that we are armed with this information, I want to urge everyone out there to tell your family, tell your neighbors, tell your friends, tell your enemies, tell the guy who bags your groceries and pumps your gas (ha!), the lady at the dry cleaners, your attorney, your banker, your baker, your candlestick maker, and even your Indian Chiefs. In short, tell every one you come into contact with between now and July 15. Dr. Horrible is coming.
