As I said in one of my previous posts, up until Christmas I’ll be featuring some “geeky” presents, to get for the geeks in your life (or to put on your own wish list). First up, is Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog!
I’ve professed my love for this Joss Whedon web series many times on this blog. Neil Patrick Harris stars (and sings) as Billy aka Dr Horrible, an “evil” villain who is in love with Penny (Felicia Day from The Guild), the girl from the laundromat. All he wants to do is get the girl, join the Evil League of Evil, and rule the world, but his arch-nemesis Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion) is standing in his way.
The soundtrack has been available for some time now on iTunes and Amazon, but the actual CD
and DVD are coming out this month, with all sorts of extras on it. The most note worthy of those extras is Commentary! The Musical, an extra 42 minutes of songs as the commentary, sung by the whole ‘gang’ (writers, actors, etc).
The DVD is available for $9.99 on Amazon.com and will be released on the 19th of December. This means that (if you pick the right shipping) for US residents it should arrive on time before Christmas, but for everyone else it will be way too late. Still: it is a great Christmas present and I know most people would gladly wait a couple of days to get their hands on it.
