YouTube Tuesday: strike two

With another looming strike on the horizon, the entertainment industry seems poised to shoot itself in the foot for the second year in a row.

Unfortunately for them, more and more people are learning how much they really don't need/want teevee programming.

Fortunately for us, some of those people are the artists who traditionally have created the content for stage and screen.

The latest luminary to eschew the Hollywood machine is Joss Whedon, creator of one of my favorite space westerns, Firefly. Whedon's latest project is a web-based short-form video miniseries called Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

The series is set to launch in the next month or so, and as this trailer shows, Whedon seems to be bringing some of the potentially striking SAG actors along for the ride.

This is going to be a lot of fun.

  1. I agree that TV sucks right now. We are actually considering leaving the house tonight. That's not the real reason for the post, though: You told me to warn you when I come to K.C., so I thought I should let you know I'll be in town next weekend (July 12 - 15). Also, I found an interesting thing about the Chiefs on Yahoo Sports, which I would link to if I could figure out how to put a hyperlink in a comment.


  2. You had me at Whedon. The title sealed the deal tho! The trailer was just gravy.

  3. O.

    Thank you for letting me know about this. As a huge fan of YouTube Tuesday, you have out done yourself this week, my friend. This is truly Joss-tastic and I have spread the good word to many people thanks to you! I can't wait!


Your turn to riff...
