Joss Whedon Is Amazing July 8, 2008

So, finally getting around to posting the teaser trailer for Joss Whedon’s online mini-musical (in three parts) Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog:

Yes, that’s Nathan Fillion beating up on Neil Patrick Harris. No I don’t see how this could be any more awesome (unless there was a cameo by Kristen Bell).

In related news, I’m still totally excited about Dollhouse (although not entirely sure if I’ve blogged about it yet or not) not least because there hasn’t been a character named “Echo” on TV since they killed off Mr. Eko on Lost. I was also sad when I realized (after his death) that although he sounds like my husband, I could not actually marry him, because that would make my name Echo Eko, which is totally unacceptable. I am also excited about the super hotness and total ass-kickingness of Helo and Faith (far left and center below).

Although, based on this picture the other two “dolls” (you can tell because they’re not wearing shoes) are kind of funny looking, especially the guy. Also, before he was cast in this, when I was watching the credits on BSG I always thought the actor playing Helo (Tahmoh Penikett) was one of the girls. (I think I thought he was Dualla, who it turns out was played by the actor I thought was playing Cally. What happened to Dualla anyway, did she die and I just don’t remember it? That would be sad because I really liked her before she got married to Lee and got sucked into his black hole of whinyness. (I also am still not caught up, so if she turns out to be the final cylon or something, please do not tell me, thank you.)

Also, I was looking around on the FOX website, trying to find a trailer or something for Dollhouse, which clearly I didn’t, but their site is kind of sketchy and surprisingly low on content, also very dark. Was it always like that, do they just keep all the stuff on the show pages? I don’t know, anyway.

I am also starting to really miss the shows that never came back on the air after the strike, even the ones that I only watched regularly, not obsessively (Chuck, Private Practice, where did you go?). Anyway, my brain is (clearly) kind of scattered today, so I am going to go and make my annual Excel time-slot conflict spreadsheet (factors include, how committed I am to the show, and whether it is available online).
