For some of you this is old news. You have already watched it and are in awe of the greatness that can come out of a writers strike.
This post is not for you. This is for all of my friends and blog readers that have yet to watch this amazing piece of work. Don't go Pirate the thing either. Forget those Torrents. Seriously get on iTunes and buy this one. IT'S WORTH IT! Not to mention they have all 3 Acts for like $3.99 or something. Not a bad deal.
Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is one of the best things that could ever happen to the Internet. Not only was it well written, and filmed, and the MUSIC ALONE! I mean come on!!! Ok sorry... It also brings up a huge point.
The future of TV.
That's right! Dr. horrible was released only on the Internet and Exclusively on iTunes. Supposedly it is in the works for it to be released on DVD with Special Features etc (I will be buying this) which rocks. This wasn't just an amazing mini-series. This was Joss Whedon giving Hollywood a kick in the rear! Who needs Hollywood when you have the Internet.
Sure we already have Hulu and sites like that where we can watch TV content. But this is someone who has done shows for TV and decided to take a stand (you know Joss Whedon.. Trust me you do! Buffy, Firefly, Serenity! Ringing a bell yet?).
So what are Broadcasting companies going to do? This is something they should really start thinking about. I think we will be seeing more and more releases like this on iTunes and the Internet.
Again, if you haven't watched it, YOU NEED TO! Click on the banner and it will take you to the website where you can download it and read more about it.
