Writers' strike impact not so Horrible. In an article about the top 12 film industry stories of 2008 Box Office Prophets describes Dr Horrible as one of the best things to come out of the writers strike.

That Whedon Kool-Aid is mighty tasty. And of course there's no icky pre-sweetened variety.
Joss was such a visible and leader-ly presence during the writer's strike...so I have to say that I was a little surpised listening to the lyrics to Strike! while checking out the fantastic Dr. Horrible musical commentary:

Joss:
AND LOSE WE DID
IMPRESSIVELY


All:
IíM PROUD I WALKED THE LINE
WITH WRITERS, FANS AND FRIENDS OF MINE
BUT NOW I ASK WHAT WAS IT FINALLY ABOUT
AND YEARS FROM NOW IíLL TELL MY TYKE
JUST WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO STRIKE
OUT


Have there been any articles or interviews from Joss post-strike indicating that he thought that their effort was all for naught?
He's mentioned it at least once, yes.
I'd be interested in reading them if anyone can point me in the right direction...
If they thought that the strike went bad then- it would have been total disaster now in the present economic climate.

Walking the strike line with those folks on Mutant Enemy Day was such a blast though. It's a shame that they didn't get what they deserved.
Just wait until the actors go on strike next week (if they vote yes).
