Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog: Making Beautiful Music Together
Big bash at the Dr. Horrible lab. All the evildoers in town are there. Bad Horse's minions, a hot girl (who may or may not be Bait... or Switch), Moist, other League members we haven't met yet. Dr. Horrible even gets a wardrobe upgrade. This lab coat is red. Blood red. And he heads to meet with the League. Ooh, Bad Horse. Bad Horse is real horse! For some reason, I thought maybe it was just a code name. A real horse is way cooler. Like Mr. Ed, but menacing.
The Doctor heads into the meeting room with his goggles on, and says "Now I won't feel..." flash to a depressed Billy in his lab, wearing plain clothes and blogging "...a thing." The end. Screen goes black. I'm in shock. This is not where I saw this going. I saw it ending in a big sweeping kiss and one of those pretty round fade-in things. Just like the Buffy musical episode, when Spike planted one on the vampire slayer. I didn't expect the heroine to die, even if she was kind of annoying. I want to see more of how this heartbreaking turn of events goes on to shape the horribleness that is our new favorite doctor! I want to see what happens next! ...I am just speechless.
Credits are rolling... maybe there's something more? Nice instrumental medley. I learn that the familiar newscaster is the awesome Marti Noxon. Makes sense -- now I'm singing "They go the mustard out!" in my head. A heapload of people worked on this. I'm guessing it was a labor of love. And then Mutant Enemy's "grr, argh" zombie pops up. A sure sign that that's it. Can I start a petition for more? Please? I've got about 20 bucks on me... would that help at all? No? Probably not. Well, at least I can go rewatch this again. And memorize all the songs. And there's the comic book to look at. That's something.
To get more analysis from someone who is more coherent than the babbling mess I've turned into (thanks so much for that, Joss) check out our editors' reviews of Act 1, 2 and 3. Then discuss the show in our forums!
