10. Musical commentary, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog
While Joss Whedon long ago made a name for himself as a master of nerd-friendly, high-concept genre entertainment, his master philosophy has only recently become clear: If it’s worth doing, it’s worth singing about. That logic gave the world the musical Buffy The Vampire Slayer episode, “Once More With Feeling,” and it also helped lead to Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, a 40-minute story of love, betrayal, and death-whinnying. The success of Dr. Horrible, which originally appeared online, led to a DVD release that contains the current pinnacle of Whedon’s tunesmith obsessions: “Commentary! The Musical,” an additional audio track that features the show’s actors and creative talent singing about egos, the inspiration for the blog, and the pain of being a background performer. It’s the rare gimmick audio commentary that’s a pleasure to listen to all the way through.
