Today was officially the day that the first episodes Joss Whedon’s net project, Doctor Horrible’s Sing Along Blog launched to the masses.
The bad news is that the web site was crushed, and it still seems that you can’t actually watch the episode unless you get it from iTunes.
The good news is that it’s number one on iTunes, both for single episodes and season passes.
I should mention here that it’s absolutely fantastic. If you’re a fan of Joss Whedon you’ll love it, and it’s awesome to see him tackling songs once again. He just gets how to make the lyrics work in context, and use the music as a way to counterpoint the action. He’s also got a few tricks up his cinematic sleeve that pay off really well, like setting one number in a laundromat.
