Thanks. I already had it pre-ordered for $13.99. Rather than deal with them adjusting the price, I just canceled and re-ordered.

Amazon automatically does that with their preorder price guarantee. They will charge the 13.99 then a couple days later you should get a 3 dollar refund

For a series that was originally intended to be shown on the internet, I'm really suprised that they shot this in HD. Good price, but I have the dvd so I'll pass for now.

Is this an awesome movie (short)? I never got a chance to check it out but Amazon has several good reviews of this.

It's a three-part short film series, totaling about 42 minutes in length.

Fans of Joss Whedon's other work typically love it. Others have had more mixed reactions.

You can read the original thread on the series here:

I went ahead and ordered it. I figured it is worth a blind buy.

Can anyone confirm the difference between the blu and the dvd? Seems like blu has fan auditions for league of evil, and that is it.

I believe all the extras from the DVD are carried over.

This is one of those do I regret ordering it or do I regret not ordering it? I decided to regret ordering it. Hopefully, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Just FYI, Best Buy will be carrying the Blu-ray with an exclusive book for $14.99 - whther it's a book worth $5 and tax is anybody's guess.

It's the Dr Horrible comic book. And I was hoping a store had gotten it exclusively once I heard the book version disappearing from Amazon. So thanks for the info.

Where did you see this info about Best Buy? I don't see it mentioned on their web site. Want to see if it's worth the extra $4.

When you search "Dr. Horrible's" at bestbuy.com you get three results:



I bet the extra dash in "Sing-Along" threw off your search. Of course, like any other Best Buy exclusive, to get it you'll have to find a BB emplyee, remind him he works at Best Buy, and convince him to fetch an advertised exclusive from a heretofore unopened box from the back of the store.

I'm hoping it is shrinkwrapped to the case. It might be like a mini comic book, not full-size...
