Part 3 of 3 comes out in two days, and then the free preview online will be over and you can only buy it on iTunes or DVD.

We watched the first two episodes, and it's pretty hilarious. It's about a wannabe evil villain, his arch-nemesis, and his crush from the laundromat. And lots of singing.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

I'm of a few minds about it. We enjoyed watching...and then came the
big shock. Yes, it made sense...but it was sad.

Here are four blog posts I found that put the most thought into
analyzing it. (Full of SPOILERS.)

And then of course there were the objectionable bits that one could
wish weren't so blatant.

Wow that was great. I think that it really proved joss's point that he put in his master plan.That you dont need millions of dollars to do something that is really good and that people will enjoy. More power to the writers.

I agree that the ending was a little sad and kind of... disturbing, but I don't know how else they would have ended it.  And everything else was so good, and funny, it did make a nice contrast.

If he, or anyone can keep making shows like this, I say bring back the musicals! I hated musicals when I was a kid but I could watch this all day long.

This was pretty much the most awesome thing come out since he made Firelfy. I laughed. I cried. I ordered pizza.

I agree, I loved this show. I was sad that it was so short, but happy that it was so GOOD! (and FREE!)

If only more producers/writers had that kind of love for the fans and the story. Most of what we get fed is crap with the occational gem.

Features a very silly dragon. Hilarity MAY ensue.

Ahhhh Joss Whedon never lets me down. Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is so hilarious and wonderful that I demand more now!  ;D

Seriously, the combined awesomeness of Nathan Fillion, Neal Patrick Harris and Felicia Day is too uber to put into words.  :D

That would be awesome if they got together to do something else in this same field. Clearly not sequel capable, but I am sure his mind has plenty of story ideas that will fit into this.

It has potential to expand into other areas with the Blog. I mean, there is much more story to be told I think. Heck, even if there wasn't anything left I'd still say there was.  ;)

That was really good.  I won't give spoilers, but the ending was perfect.  Predictable, but perfect.  I hope they expand this into a full-length movie or play.
I wanted to write something profound here, but I couldn't think of anything.

Both joyous and non-joyous all at the same time. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001M5UDGS. I get to pester even more people about it now and enjoy it anywhere I want =)...but Christmas Giftability may be questionable at best with that kind of release date.

On Hulu for free in the original three act format or as one long segment. There are worse things you could do with 40 minutes. Joss is a genius!
