Why isn't this available yet?,
This review is from: Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog [DVD] (DVD)
This is sheer genius. Even if you have downloaded the musical from iTunes or watched it last summer on the Internet, you still need this DVD. It's worth importing from the US, but it would be so much better not to have to.
Joss Whedon (Buffy, Angel, Firefly) wrote this with family and friends during the writers' strike, filmed it just before embarking on Dollhouse and released it to enormous acclaim in the summer of 2008 - so popular it "broke the internet". The central character, Dr Horrible, desperately wants two things - Penny, the love of his life, and to be a super-villain. Alas - how can they be compatible?
The songs are fresh and stick in the head. The lyrics and script are as funny and engaging as you might expect from this master-writer. The DVD extras are awesome - where else would you get a whole new musical as a commentary? Applications to join the Evil League of Evil sent in from master criminal wannabes from all over the world? You know you need this!
