Doctor Horrible's Officially Official Fan site

What a few days it's been...
After the excitement of the Buffy Reunion at the Paley last week we might have expected Jossverse-related news to fade to the usual roar. Well, if we did, we would have been wrong. The frenzy surrounding Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog was stoked by Joss casually mentioning that he was slightly tardy to the Paley because they had just finished wrapping Doctor Horrible. Since then there has been a frantic search for information, however small, about who/what/why/when the three, ten minute musical episodes will be completed and released.

From Unoffical to Official in three days...
On March 24th Whedonesque spotted a new fan site for Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and within hours the new site was inundated with visitors. Since then it has added content seemingly by the hour as more information is gleaned from all available sources. And so it was only a matter of time before other parts of the Interweb started to take notice. Already salivating at the prospect of Neil Patrick Harris singing Joss Whedon-penned songs, the fansite was mentioned on E! Online and io9. And the Felicia Day, picking up her Google Alerts, found the fansite and blogged about it. Which makes her blog a blog about a fansite blog that's about a musical blog that she's starring in....On the 27th the fansite announced that it was now the 'Official' fansite for Doctor Horrible and revealed another cast member.

Things move fast in cyber(geek)space
By any measure that's pretty quick going. Apparently the fansite will be the first to know of new developments so that would be the place to go to find things out. Exciting times! And that's even before we think about Dollhouse. Speaking of which...E! Online have broken the news that Helo from Battlestar Galactica (actor Tahmoh Penikett) is joining the crew on Dollhouse. There are more details on the site including his character's name and details of other cast members. Shooting starts in April so there should be more news coming out soon.

And speaking of BSG...
The race is on the finish watching Season 3 before Friday! Space cable channel is airing a hour-long BSG extravaganza on Friday in which Joss himself appears speaking about how much he loves BSG. And Season 4 (the final season) starts on April 4th. Not long to wait now!

Happy birthday Nathan!
Nathan Fillion celebrates his birthday today. Let's hope Captain Hammerpants has a great day with cake, drinks and maybe just a little bit of music.
