By the way, I've heard that they'll be taking these down come Monday (21st) and then they will only be available on DVD!

Indeed, Joss is going to make an announcement about what we can expect on the DVD at Comic Con.

I have zero interest in WOW but found it entertaining, and i've become ever so slightly smitten with Felicia's smile. Had some cash in my paypal account so pre-ordered the DVD.

Act III is up.

Remember, you've only got until Sunday to watch it before it's removed from the NET for good.

Pink Pummler is the name of the boxing villlian.

Line of the episode for me:

"Life can be hard,
but unless you're a freekin' 'tard
you'll get through
"

Not bad. The songs were a bit weak at first but I loved the opening one in Act III.

So what is Joss going to do with this? Is it going to lead to anything or was it just a one-off?

Oh and I was really hoping NPH would say "suit up!" at some point

That was pretty good - best laughs in Act 2, and best songs in Act 3. Not a patch on Buffy: OMWF, but it is great to see Nathan Fillion again.

Liked it a lot but didn't love it, perhaps it'll grow on me. Although I found the first and last a little uneven, the second act was superb, songs and story. Would've liked the ending to be different to enable more episodes in the future.

Fantastic to see Nathan again, on the whole he was under used imo, though I can understand why, NPH was really excellent.

Things took a turn for the Whedon didn't they? Fillion was aces, and Doogie of course.

Wow, what an awful concluding act.


A complete change in tone that didn't work at all, bland songs, very ho-hum lyrics and a shock ending just for the sake of it.



Ah well, that saves me having to bother with the DVD.

Bit of a hollow ending, and certainly not leaving the way open for anything further. Can't understand why NPH did this. The other two probably feel like they owe Whedon.

WOW! Well I certainly wasn't expecting that!

Overall I have to say I LOVED this! A dvd must have, I just hope it's soonish (I'm more than happy to purchase a copy to support this kind of quality endeavour).
What a lovely mid-summer pressie that was for all of us! And a fillet de Fillion to boot!
