5.0 out of 5 stars "A wacky idea that's zany," says Neil Patrick Harris., 5 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
During the 2008 Writers' Guild of America strike, Joss Whedon created a short musical called Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. On the DVD
release Dr Horrible's Singalong Blog [DVD] [2008] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC], the writers and actors created an entirely
new musical commentary for the movie. This is the soundtrack to that musical.

If you have not watched Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, this will make little or no sense to you. It is a collection of songs about the
movie, about the stars, and about the behind-the-scenes gems you expect from any director's commentary, performed in a mixture of jazz, rock
ballads, showtunes, and Avenue Q style humour.

Overall, brilliant if you know the original musical. Every song is funny, memorable and very well produced. A great purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eight Astronauts Who Clearly Lied in Their Psychological Evaluation, 15 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Too soft for science fiction lovers? Too much science for soap opera fans? Maybe too slow for the casual viewer. But certainly very, very
good drama.

In the near future, the space-craft Antares is setting off for a voyage across the solar system, to study the planets and tread new ground.
Eight astronauts with varying fears, regrets and secrets set off in the name of science, optimistic and hopeful. But as the first year of
their mission progresses, the men and women of the Antares are confronted with things they'd rather forget. (Admittedly, real astronauts
would never be admitted to fly with such varied psychological and emotional problems. But it is the focus of the plot, after all.) Is the
vast weight of empty space too much for them? Or is there a hidden agenda for the mission - something inside their minds?

The development of the plot is a little slow. But unless you are a dry, shrivelled cynic, the characters are likeable, believable, and
interesting.
The series was cancelled after only 13 episodes, and it goes without saying that there are plot points left unresolved, and secrets left
unsaid. What we do have is 13 episodes of original drama with an incredible, heartfelt climax. Invest the time and focus that this
incredible series deserves, and you will feel truly attached to these characters, and satisfied with time well spent.

As an added bonus, the music is very good, and the special effects are excellent.
Perfect for wanna-be astronauts, fans of realism, science, romance.
Buy it.
