Dr DreadFul's YouTube Riposte to Dr Horrible's Singalong Blog.

This isn't Rich Johnston again is it? I vastly prefer his Lying In The Gutters stuff.
Well I found that to be an amusing diversion whilst I wait for Saturday Us time to roll around.
Yeah, maybe could've used a couple of takes to iron out some flubs but apart from that pretty funny (the comments are right though, if he's aiming for sidekick he needs to take the 'Doctor' out of his name - 'Nurse DreadFul' might work better for example).

And if he literally just knocked it off (which would explain the flubs) then it's a nice bit of work.
Lens flare. Tell your friends.
Not related to the topic, but can anyone tell me why whedonesque news always show up twice on Twitter?
Dunno. But I shall look in to it. Thanks for bringing to our attention.
While you're there can you explain why deleted posts stay on the livejournal feed? Maybe it's by design, I don't know, but it does mean that if, say, something is deleted because it's spoilerific, us LJers get spoiled anyway. Thanks.
I can take a look but I think that the LJ feed doesn't remove stuff deleted from the parent RSS feed and it also duplicates posts that are edited after their original posting.
He could be Resident Dreadful. Don't know if it works the same way on t'other side of the pond, but here being a Resident is the step below being a full-fledged doctor. And it has that nice callback to Resident Evil. Which I never before realized involved playing doctor.
Meh. This wasn't my cup of tea. I liked his previous work, though.

*walks off wondering why a doctor would be wearing black*
Junior Doctor Dreadful?

(I'm not sure if that's exactly equivalent to a Resident, but it seems fairly appropriate. ;)
Houseman DreadFul ? Think that's our "resident".
Saje: ...If he's aiming for sidekick he needs to take the 'Doctor' out of his name - 'Nurse DreadFul' might work better for example).

barboo: He could be Resident Dreadful. Don't know if it works the same way on t'other side of the pond, but here being a Resident is the step below being a full-fledged doctor.


How about "Dreadful Intern"? Or maybe it should be more descriptive. Or give him a name, like sidekicks usually have. Maybe he could be a specialist, too. I've got it! How about "Dreadful Eddie, the Terrorist Phlebotomist"?

...Of course, "Eddie" would be a nom du crime. If he was really named Ed it would kind of give away the whole secret identity thing. And drawing blood is pretty gross, so that might scare the kids too much, not that they'd know what a phlebotomist is. But he'd have needles. Needles are scary. Maybe he could just have gauze and those rubber hose things that they tie your arm up with. Those can sting if you snap them hard.

...Um.

...Nevermind.
That's good stuff, Grotesk :)
The image of a super-villain that goes around snapping surgical tubing at people is going to have me smiling all night ;). Immature Locker-Room Man ! (TM ;).
It's Dr. Horrible as in "PhD in horribleness". I don't think he needs a nurse. :)
Yeah but Research Assistant DreadFul just doesn't make sense ;).
Saje said:

Oh, wait. Nobody told me anything about making sense before! :P
How about Professor DreadFul? "The Evil Adventures of Doctor Horrible and His Assistant, Professor DreadFul!" Hmm. I don't know. I'd lose the capitalization of the F though, but that's me.

I like his Puppet Angel on a shelf, BTW.
I'm going to reserve the domain name 'Doctor Naughty' because I figure there will be a run on these things now...
Dreadlok the Rastafarian mon with his evil cannabis!

Except Rastafarian's may be way too mellow to do a proper evil.
"Dredful Mellow", then?

[old timey music plays]

Dredful Mellow,
He's a Dreadful Fellow
Beware his Dreadful Bellow, cause you can't deny
that when you get in a pickle
his assistance isn't fickle
the only other thing that rhymes with this
is probably Travis Bickle
in his cab, he drives!

[ragtime piano solo]

Dreadful, the intern

He pokes you with his rusty needle
sixteen times before he finds the vein
His transfusions may not be the right blood type
but the plasma's got 93 octane
