Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

Least favorite Buffy episode? The musical. I KNOW, IT'S YOUR FAVORITE. Whatevski. You'll probably love Joss Whedon's newest project, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. I wish I were gayer. [via]


This is the post I want Kitty to reply to!

Also, for the record, I'd probably blow Whedon.

This is a man who wore a white vinyl jacket and spent, what, 40 minutes styling his hair for tv saying he wishes he were gayer? Seriously?

oh yeah, this is the post for me! you want to know who rules over all the nerds on the internet? (hint: it's not julia allison.)

actually though i am fond of the musical episode, it's kind of an episode for people in the know, and it's a terrible episode to watch if you haven't seen buffy before, which a few of my friends have made the mistake of doing. then i have to coax them back...with season 1. the lamest season of all.

my top three favorite episodes (minus the bits with buffy and spike in season 6, rrrowr.) are doppelgangland, (evil vampire willow from "the wish" crosses over.) something blue, (where all of willow's wishes accidentally come true,) and the zeppo. (xander saves the world, sleeps with faith, and nobody knows.) all of these episodes are quoted quite often by me.

and if i haven't given myself away yet, (NERD!) a friend and i went to see james marster's (spike) band a few years ago, and it was awesome. the whole audience was 45 year old suburban moms in cat sweaters and goth kids who were exactly like the vampire cult from season 2 and tended to yell "spike!" at the stage a lot.
we got drunk.

Do I get internet cred points removed for never having seen Buffy?

@ leo. That's a good pick but go back to break up with Angel. WAY HOTTTT.

@ ironic. What? I don't own a white vinyl jacket and I've never spent more than 40 seconds styling my hair (seriously -- ask!). C'mon now. I am pretty gay though.

@ kitty. Even though our faves don't exactly match up, I love these choices, because they're mostly boxed, separated epps, away from the normal lore.

@ katie. No.

JOSS Whedon, not JOSH. Please do not take the master's name in vain.

Thanx, fixed.

It was either a rock band or Guitar Hero party. Go back and look at the pictures, and you'll see you have a white jacket it on....Sure looks like vinyl....

Do you not like all musicals or just Whedon's attempts?

posted by LS at 11:02 AM on July 17, 2008

Sadly, it's musicals. I just don't get them.

posted by Rex at 11:09 AM on July 17, 2008

Hush is easily the best Buffy episode, although I did like Once More With Feeling (the musical episode).

posted by karion at 1:01 PM on July 17, 2008

I could be persuaded toward Hush, but can you really beat The Body? Also have a soft spot for Conversations with Dead People and Sleepless. Loved OMWF, but only saw the traveling sing-along show once, unlike some others I know.

Since I'm not on the record yet, I'll say that Hush is also my favorite, for this reason: when I want to show someone (okay, a girl) how artful the show is, this is the episode we watch.

It has yet to not end in making out.

"hush" was the only episode nominated for an emmy. and they didn't win. i also love "hush," just for the slideshow giles gives, and anya's hand gesture to xander after he beats up spike. "the body" is also amazing, but so incredibly sad, too sad for my best of list. i also love "restless" the dream episode, and "life serial" where the trio are testing buffy and her day keeps repeating.

which one is "sleepless"?

i have never liked musicals. bursting into song to express something is just weird. and dancing? even weirder. they should make a musical where peoples reactions are what they would actually be, total embarrassment and horror on the girl's part at being sung to, and bystanders crashing cars and walking into poles. i think i might be the only girl i know who really disliked moulin rouge, despite it being chock full of ewan mcgregor.

Five Funniest Episodes


posted by Jeff at 11:11 PM on July 17, 2008

"beer bad" is my least favorite episode of buffy. i've seen it once and unlike every other episode of buffy once was enough.

however, band candy is pretty funny. angel does tai chi! buffy drives a car! (badly)
